How to Get There
Unbelievable, this hotel has 4 stars??? The AA need to look again, how is it possible?!!
Carpets are filthy, the headboard looks disgusting, there are no hangers?? PAT testing is out of date=fire hazard.
Evidence photos attached, £200+ shocking!
We stayed in this hotel and how they have 4 star rating beggars belief. The pillows have no protectors the head board was filthy dirty as was the carpets No hangers in the wardrobe and no glasses for drinks. There was a hose pipe grout of the bedroom window for air con The TVs was stuck on one Chanel. The lounge reception was set up for afternoon tea. The table clothes were not even ironed. The carpets are dirty and torn. Clearly who ever owns this hotel really doesn't care about guest experience! If you do t mind sleeping in others peoples bodily fluids book this hotel !
We booked a Superior Double room at the hotel through a secret escapes/late luxury promotion and ended up paying £150 for our stay. For this price in Kensington, I would have been happy with a leaky cupboard! The room was massive - we had a large double bed with a TV in a sizable bedroom with an en suite bathroom which had a lovely deep bath. We also had a balcony with a view of the London skyline, which was a hidden treat! Some of the decor was a little faded/tired but everything was spotlessly clean. There were no tea and coffee making facilities in the room, but we did not mind this.
The hotel is on an extremely quiet street with barely any noise from traffic or passersby, which was brilliant as I had a half-marathon to run and needed a good night's sleep. That said, there are plenty of lovely restuarants and bars in the local area. The hotel is a couple of minute's walk from Gloucester Road Tube station and about five - ten minutes' walk from the Natural History Museum, half an hour's walk from Hyde Park.
The staff were helpful and accommodating. We were asked to pay a £50 deposit against the use of the mini-bar but, since we had no intention of using the mini-bar, we refused and the staff were very good about this.
Included in the price of the room was a continental breakfast, which consisted of toast, pastries, tea/coffee and juice. There was an option to pay £5 each to upgrade to a 'garden breakfast' which included cereals/yoghurt/etc.
All in all, I would definitely recommend the hotel at the price we paid for the location, the quiet and the option of late check-out.
Good neighborhood with fine restaurants and pubs; close to transportation hubs. Small rooms but clean and comfortable. Onsite restaurant with good food. Some of the staff were pleasant, others not so much.
Followup on requests were negligible. Inadequate clothes storage space in room. Portable A/C unit didn't cool room. No elevator on one side of hotel. Shower water temperature fluctuates from cool to hot. Not all electrical outlets, lights and clock are operational.
If you are willing to accept the bad with the good, the Cranley may be worthwhile.
We stayed at the Cranley in Sept. 2018 for a full week. We really liked it. The location is really great, as it is close to several tube stops, near lots of restaurants and shopping, etc. The facility is in good shape and the staff were friendly and helpful. We had an issue with the WiFi, but it was quickly fixed. We had breakfast there one day and it was really good. It was also very quiet at night, which was great.
