This was my second stay at the Cranley Hotel and was not dissappointed. The staff goes out of their way to be helpful and courteous. The rooms are elegant and clean and the beds are comfortable. A real pleasure.

Check in was very smooth and efficient. We were immediately offered tea in our room and shown to room 501. This has to be one of the best rooms in London that we have stayed in. The room was large, the bed enormous, table and desk provided. We liked that you did not have to walk around the bed to... More

A traditional and attractive hotel with exemplary service, Our bed and bathroom were lovely, and extremely comfortable and smart, a slightly worn look to the chair and drawers did not worry us, but is why I have given the room 4 stars. Exceptionally clean and comfortable for London. It was perfect after an evening at the opera. Will definitely stay... More

Obviously we were not the only ones to suffer at the hands of Lastminute.com. On our arrival at the Royal Park we were greeted with the opening question "Do you want the good news?".

I had to book a last-minute hotel room for an overnight stay in London, due to work. Lastminute.com made a hash of it, and sold me a room at the Royal Park, sister hotel of the Cranley. But both hotels proved highly efficient, and arranged me an upgraded room in the Cranley. What a lovely surprise! I have stayed in... More

I wound up at the Cranley twice this past month... one on vacation, the second time on business. Both times I thought the Cranley continues to hold its own. It's excellent value and a charming place and extremely clean. I think I've stayed there ten times now (though it's never earned me an upgrade.... however, I don't think London hotels... More

Booked the Cranley after seeing reviews on Tripadvisor and looking on the hotels website. It seemed to be a personal ,boutique type hotel a million miles from those corporate chains with not much difference in price. The location was great - down a nice quiet side road not far from Gloucester road tube and close to some nice restaurants. Elegantly... More

This is a blissful calm, comfortable, luxurious hotel within the mayhem of London. After a very long day traveling and seeing London in the freezing weather, with a toddler, we were SO grateful to arrive here. The fire, Christmas tree, gorgeous furnishings and a warm smile greeted us. After settling our son, we enjoyed a very relaxing evening by the... More

Staying in South Kensington

Neighbourhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
