My wife, son, and I stayed at The Cranley for a week in August and it was a wonderful experience. The daily tea that we ordered was served piping hot with a side of cookies. The staff could not be more helpful - Jose in particular was amazing. Although some of the support staff at the front desk were not...

Me and my partner stayed here for 3 nights in September and had a lovely stay. We booked through lastminute.com and booked a standard room which on the website for the Cranley is actually listed as a petite double. We were slightly worried about this but the room is a very good size although I do think the bed is...

Wonderful hotel. Clean, wonderful spacious rooms. The Staff was so accomodating. The breakfast was a true continental breakfast. It was good, but not a full English Breakfast. I would stay there again, no problem. This hotel is also about two blocks from the Gloucester Tube station-so convenient.

After booking at the Cranley, I thought that there was no way the reveiws would be correct. But they were! Lovely boutique hotel in an excellent location in Kensington. No restaurant, no big deal.. there were many lovely places to try nearby.. The bumpkin.. highly recommend it and the Indian Place next door. Be sure to make a reservation at...

This small hotel has many advantages for those who want to be well located in London. First, it is five minutes from the next metro station ( tube). Second. It's next to the magnificent Natural History Museum of london. And last but not least the hotel is located in a very quiet street, is quite comfortable and has a great...

I stayed at the Cranley during a visit to London with my husband and daughters. We were here to visit family and introduce London to my children. The hotel is beautiful and the staff could not be more helpful. They recommended local restauraunts and made reservations for us. Also helped us map out where we wanted to go and how...

We booked this hotel on Expedia and were able to pay in US$ a couple of months ahead of our trip. It is in South Kensington about a five-minute walk to the Gloucester tube station which connects to three different lines around London. We had several excellent restaurants nearby recommended by the hotel and several coffee shops, bars, and Kensington...

Visited London for the weekend. This boutique hotel was conveniently located 8 minute walk from South Kensington tube stop. Many local restaurants and bars if you don't feel like venturing through Central London. My room was not huge, but the area was very walkable and safe, staff very friendly, room very clean and services were good. Free breakfast was included...

Nice hotel with spacious rooms (for London). Check-in was efficient, despite there were 10 of us. The hotel was very handy for the Tube (5-10 minute walk) and there were many shops and restaurants nearby. Only slight con was that the hotel could not serve breakfast (brought to the room on a tray) before 7am, which was slightly inconvenient for...

After reading all the wonderful reviews, we were incredibly excited about our stay at the Cranley, and I'm happy to say we weren't disappointed. Upon our arrival, Jose greeted us and showed us maps of the area, gave us a great recommendation for lunch at Bumpkin restaurant, and then had complimentary tea and biscuits sent to our room while we...

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.
