"Glad we had a deal"
We booked this hotel through a last minute deal and thank goodness we did. Had we paid full price I would not have been impressed. The booking in was pleasant and efficient, We only had any interaction with a couple of staff and they were excellent. We were given a room in the basement, fine as far as it goes but the noise from the kitchen was marked and there was a very large damp patch behind the door. There were no tea and coffee facilities and no information pack to give us a clue as to how to obtain such a thing and how much it might cost. There was no indication how to contact reception on the phone either, we managed through trial and error. However, the bed was fine, comfortable and large and the bathroom, though more than a little tired was clean and had an excellent shower. I suspect that the money needed to bring it back to it's former glories is hard to come by in an expensive area of the city which is a shame. Would I go again, I would probably put up with it if I had to but with so many other options available, If I had to pay full price then no
We used to come to the Cranley for years for its cosy atmosphere and nice location. Unfortunately, since the change of ownership, it is not the same anymore and it seems to be going downhill at a fast speed. Now we need to find another "hotel de charme" in the area.
"A once pleasant hotel gone to seed."
The Cranley is superbly located in South Kensington, on a quiet street off the Old Brompton Road. There are a variety of decent pubs, coffee shops and restaurants nearby, and it is a short walk to the museum district, two tube stations and Hyde Park. We have stayed there several times over the last 10 years and it has been in decline over that span. The formally English speaking staff are now all eastern europeans with limited liguistic skills and are of marginal helpfullness, The lobby chairs are broken, the carpets tattered and the rooms are increasingly shabby. Even with the excellent location it is poor value for money, and I would recommend avoiding it,
A charming hotel very well located offers stylish rooms and good service. The afternoon tea and the breakfasts are excellent with scones and everything A must go for finding an old England style place with modern confort
Really enjoyed our stay at the Cranley Hotel. On check in we were given an upgrade to a super double room and it was as described... great four poster bed & really comfortable. Highly recommended. We didn't have breakfast but it looked good. Great location and friendly staff / enjoy
