Rooms & Rates
Set across three regency townhouses in leafy Chelsea, the 4-star Cranley Hotel is an intimate property with only 39 rooms and a quintessentially English feel. Friendly staff greet guests with a welcome drink and deliver free baked treats to your room at turndown.
You’ll be surrounded by some of the most iconic West London sights -- Hyde Park, the Science Museum, the Royal Albert Hall and the Natural History Museum -- and there are numerous shopping opportunities and restaurants nearby, including Bumpkin Restaurant (where Prince William and Kate Middleton hosted a Christmas party) on the Old Brompton Road for seasonal British food.
There are also two underground stations within a 10-minute walk: South Kensington and Gloucester Road, both of which connect to Piccadilly Circus, Leicester Square and the theatres of the West End in 15 minutes.
The bedrooms are a good size, with high ceilings, huge windows and antique furniture. Some bathrooms are a tad small (not uncommon in London’s historical buildings), but all come with Penhaligon toiletries. Upgrade to a Four-Poster Deluxe room for something special; a canopied bed, walk-in wardrobe and views over the leafy streets await. Wi-Fi throughout is free, DVD players are available on request and there are umbrellas to borrow when the weather takes a decidedly 'British' turn.
In the evenings, retire to the pretty lounge for Champagne and canapés (7-8pm). Guests can snuggle up by an open fire here during winter months. There is no restaurant on site but there’s an honesty bar in the lounge and 24-hour room service is available. Guests can also choose to have breakfast in the lobby or in bed, at no extra charge.
