We've just enjoyed a great stay at Cransley, an exceptional, peaceful place to stay in a quiet part of town but still close enough to the centre. Ample parking is provided. The friendly owners provided us with a very welcome cup of tea on our arrival and supplied lots of local information to help us enjoy our stay. The accommodation... More

We have visited Bournemouth many times before and stayed in quite a few B&B's and hotels, but the Cransley is definitely the best value for money. The room was exactly as described in pictures, unlike other places that use photo trickery. Our hosts Jonathan and Simon really made us feel at home from the get go and they couldn't do... More

This hotel / B&B is a lovely base for exploring the local surrounds or if you are visiting Bournemouth for business. Great hosts, very clean rooms and beautifully decorated home with lovely breakfasts and with a sitting room next to the garden which guests can use.

Having found this charming b&b (as usual) via the glowing reviews from fellow Tripadvisor travellers, I felt that I had to reciprocate by writing a review. We recently attended a weekend dance event in Bournemouth and wanted to stay away from the event itself. We couldn't have chosen better. From the initial direct telephone booking we could tell that the... More

I loved this place because of the exquisite care Simon and Jonathan have placed everywhere in the house. It feels homely and calm and they care so much for every person that comes in there. Bournemouth is a lively and beautiful place to take some time off and relax.

Straight away on arrival we noticed how chilled the place was, there was a small que for check in so we waited in the lounge and we were offered some fresh coffee and biscuits. After a 7 hour drive it was nice to relax and not feel rushed, our bags where taken up to our room for us also. We... More

We left the Cransley disappointed simply because we wished we could have stayed longer, a lot longer ! It is difficult to think of anything original to mention in this review that has not already been mentioned in the previous reviews, so I guess I will just have to be boring and repetitive. Firstly, the hosting skills of the owners... More

I had heard this place was good, but believe me, it is superb. Firstly this is not a hotel as described on some booking sites, it is a B&B. We arrived early before check-in and was greeted by tea and cake and a friendly smile rather than a ' you're too early'. The location is a five minute walk from... More
