stayed for 4 nights, we had a 'road facing room;, no problems with noise at all, welcome,room and stay was very good. Cranleigh is a good 20 minute walk from the centre of Bath, which we enjoyed, luckily the weather was fine, but there was a bus into town if needed. Breakfast was also very good, with a choice for all.Parking at the hotel was a little tight, we opted to leave our car on the road outside ( it was easy to fine a place), sadly on our day of departure, we found our mirror had been 'clipped' and broken, not Cranleighs fault, but if you can, park offroad.

I wanted to experience a traditional Victorian B&B, and the Cranleigh offers that. The host was very helpful on what to do. The rooms are clean and quiet. My mattress was a bit worn down, but the sheets were comfy. The only thing I'd advise is that it is a minimum 30 min walk into the heart of Bath, so if you don't have a car, get ready to walk a bit. I ended up taking taxies more often than I'd preferred.

Cranleigh is located just over 1.5 miles to the west of Bath city centre. We do advise that this does take about 30 - 40 minutes to walk. On a nice day you can take a walk through Royal Victoria Park up to Royal Crescent, this takes about 20-35 minutes. The walk to the city centre is slightly downhill all the way. The downside of this is it's slightly uphill on the way back so we do recommend a bus or taxi.

There are a number of local buses including the No 1, 14 and 332 as well as a local park and ride scheme, Newbridge Park and Ride. Taxi's cost around 7GBP.

Tip: If you get your taxi to/from Queens Square you will not waste time and money going round Bath's one way systems. Most of the city is very accessible from Queens Square.

If you are coming by car we can recommend the Charlotte Street long stay car park for visiting the city. Cranleigh offers both onsite and on street parking both are free of charge.

We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay at Cranleigh and look forward to welcoming you again.

I stayed here back in 2006 and thought I would stay again on a recent visit to Bath. I loved the B&B last time and have to say it''s still as good this time around. We had a warm welcome on arrival and given clear, relevant information about Bath and local directions. The room was spotless and beautifully decorated. The 2 hour hot tub session was amazing and I would definitely recommend it, especially after a long week at work! The breakfasts were excellent and the individual quirky teapots were one of my favourite touches. We went to the Desh for one evening meal, a 10 minute walk away. Seemed very much a locals place, small, friendly, bring your own alcohol and brilliant food. The centre of Bath is a good half an hour walk away, but is downhill and a good way to walk off the lovely breakfast. Taxis/car parks/bus stops are around everywhere for the ones who don't fancy the walk. The only negative me or my partner could find would that a power shower would have been preferable to the one we had - completely fine as showers go but just seemed a bit lackluster. All in all staying at the Cranleigh added to a wonderful weekend away. We will certainly be back again and recommending to everyone possible!

Room Tip: Pay that little bit extra and get room 1, beautiful and perfect for romantic weekends away.

Enjoyed 2 day stay here, room full of character and homely, lots of nice touches, When our towels were mistakenly not replaced it was quickly rectified. Lots to choose from for breakfast which was cooked quickly and very tasty, our only complaint is they need to improve the coffee, quality not quantity!! Park and ride perfect for getting into Bath which is a lovely city, lots to see, lots of history and fairly compact for walking about. Weston Pub was excellent for a meal and a only a short walk away.

Cranleigh is a perfect place to stay whilst visiting Bath and surrounding areas. Everything you can think of has been covered. Beautiful room, hearty breakfast, free wifi, clean as a whistle! - no stone left unturned. The little goody box with all the things you may have forgotten was the icing on the cake. Thank you!!
