Rooms & Rates

Check 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.

Other Comments: Hotel is slightly tired in places but this only adds to its charm. The level of service was exceptional, all staff were extremely professional, kind and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble. Complimentary champagne and canapes at 7pm were a very nice added bonus! Would highly recommend.

Other Comments: Nice touch offering glass of champagne and canapés. Would have liked a separate dining room as eating breakfast in the lobby was not ideal.
