Close to the heart of Bournemouth, with a variety of interesting shops within easy walking distance.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Just spent 3 lovely nights here in room 7. Check in was easy with door codes. The standard of cleanliness was outstanding. The bed was clean and very comfortable. The kitchenette was a wonderful addition and made my stay easier as I didn't have to go out for breakfast as I had early starts and late finishes. The only thing I felt was missing was maybe a tea towel and a couple of coasters as I worried I'd mark the furniture.

I used to own and manage this hotel. Things have changed with new owners. Please be kind....it's a little different now. It looks fabulous. It is now very modern and I went for period 1911/1912. Each to their own style. I offered breakfasts, but that is no longer the case, on the premises. But that os totally fine. there are plenty of places around to have breakfasts.

Good bits - beautiful arts and crafts building in a quiet predominantly residential street. Rooms spotlessly clean and nicely furnished. Not so good - this is no longer the b&b as seen on the website prior to booking or detailed in the literature to be found in the room. It has no reception, Lounge or garden access. It has been sold to a company that do air bnb and so all rooms (they call them apartments but they are not) are self catered. No on-site support, rooms are not serviced during your stay. There are 13 rooms and only 5 parking spaces. Room 13 which we were given was a very small attic room. The bathroom was equally small and the shower so tiny that my husband could not fit in it or stand upright due to the low bulkhead (he it's not a big man). It is no longer an adults only establishment and we were kept awake on the first night by a little toddler crying until the early hours of the morning. The hotel across the road is not linked to the Cransley despite what the literature leads you to believe and you cannot use its facilities although they will let you purchase breakfast from them. Good if you want to do your own thing but if you want a little personal attention then this is not the place to go.

King Studio Room: Absolutely perfect! Very clean and decor was modern and overall the room was great. En-suite was a really good size. Room was spacious and the kitchenette was fully equipped with everything we might need. The room was so lovely we extended our stay by an extra night! Note: The photos on TripAdvisor don’t do the hotel justice in my opinion.

A truly lovely Aparthotel in a quiet location and with parking at the front. Exceptionally easy to check in and all doors with electronic keypads. Beautifully refurbished throughout to a high standard and spotlessly clean. There is a lovely tranquil garden to the rear with plenty of seating and tables. The kitchen had all that was needed and the bed and sofa bed were very comfortable. A perfect location for a relaxing mini break. Would highly recommend and will definitely be staying again.

This great little hotel has just reopened following renovation. It is stylishly decorated and now has a number of en suite, modern rooms with kitchens. It’s excellent for Familys. Just a short walk from the beach and a co-op round the corner.

Stayed for 3 nights in September in room 5 at Cransley. Very good location a short walk to the seafront and close to several restaurants. Well equipped room overlooking the lovely garden with comfortable bed and well stocked tea tray and nice toiletries in the bathroom.Really excellent cooked breakfast at £7.50 if you wanted it (order the day before) or a lighter option at £5 if preferred. Only small drawback is breakfast is served 9 to 10am which is a bit late if you have plans for the day. The hotel has a small car park (room for around 6 cars) plus there is on street parking on Knyveton Road. Jonathan and Simon are wonderful hosts and the dogs George and Hector are lovely too. Definitely recommended.
