If you are looking for a home from home for your stay, this is the hotel for you. The hotel is beautifully decorated, clean and a very relaxing base for a stay in Bournemouth. My room was immaculate and very tastefully decorated, the bathroom a little on the small side, but still managed to house a loo, basin and shower....

The friendly staff, good food and high standards of decor made this a good, stress-free break. Ideally located for travel and the sea front. I will definitely be back. Ten out of ten.

The owners were very welcoming and friendly and could point you in the direction of anything that you required in the surrounding area, the room...

I chose this hotel based on its reviews and was not disappointed. Close to the station, but in a quiet, pretty avenue. Could walk into the centre of town or take a bus. Elegant and welcoming Edwardian house, tastefully decorated. Superb service and a wonderful breakfast. Lovely details like a beautiful domed butter dish and the best marmalade I have...

This was our second trip to this charming bed and breakfast. As previously the rooms were of excellent standard and cleanliness. The breakfast and hospitality were first class and we will definitely return. The location of the Cransley is in a quiet residential area, which we like a lot. On our first visit in 2008, it is fair to say...
