“Great Place to Stay in Bath”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Me & my husband stayed here for a couple of day on our way down to Devon. Cranleigh has lots of character and has been kept in a Victorian style but not over the top. The service here is great got load of information on checkin on attractions and restaurants, I didn't realise there was so much you could do in Bath. In the mornings we used the free shuttle in to town, we could have walked but where feeling lazy. On the second day we tea and cakes in the afternoon which was very nice. Really clean comfortable rooms, we really enjoyed our stay here.

Room Tip: We had a superior room which was really large and views over the garden. Nice to have somewhere to s...

I've never really stayed at a bed and breakfast before as I prefer a traditional hotel however our stay at the Cranleigh has changed my mind. Its a perfect mix between a B&B and a boutique hotel. We recently stayed there for 3 nights and our hosts were gracious and helpful. The breakfasts each morning were excellent and our room was quite large (we chose a family room for 2 adults and two children). It also had a good sized bathroom and a nice sitting area with a comfy sofa and coffee table with a great view across the valley. The location was close to the main centre of Bath and we could walk there (about 20-30 min.) if we wanted to. I suppose some may find the decor to be a bit tired or dated however it was very clean and tidy. In the end, we would definitely stay there again and recommend it to others.

Thanks!

Room Tip: Try and request a room facing to garden instead of the road - much nicer view as the B&B is at t...

Thank you for staying with us at Cranleigh. We are really pleased you enjoyed your stay and changed your opinion about B&B's.

We try to have very high maintenance standards, as our rooms are decorated in keeping with the Victorian features of the building and we tend to use antique / classic / restored furniture and styles rather than more modern designs. We are very busy almost year round so our rooms require refurbishment on a continual 5-6 year cycle.

Unfortunately not all of our bathrooms are as large as the one you stayed in but the all do have a good sized shower, basin and toilet.

Again thank you for staying at Cranleigh and taking the time to write about your experience.

Only had 2 nights at Cranleigh, but I can thoroughly recommend it. Clean, friendly and a very comfy bed! My 3 friends and I were happy to walk into the city, although the free morning shuttle service was useful on one day to get us to Sydney Wharf in time for our boat hire. When we did walk, it took us approximately 30 minutes, going via Victoria Park, the Royal Crescent and the Circus. I would stay there again.

Room Tip: Ignore rating for fitness centre. I touched it by mistake and couldn't work out how to get rid o...

Location is conveniently close to city centre but not within walking distance.
Atmosphere is traditional but the property is very well maintained: clean, efficient with new fixtures.
Staff is very friendly and helpful.
Good Internet.
Rooms are large.
Breakfast is superb.
There is parking.
A bit on the expensive side but, all in all, acceptable prices.

Room Tip: Ask for the 4 post bed as it adds atmosphere (but all beds are very comfortable w/ or w/out 4 posts...

The service was exceptional and they could not do enough to make you feel welcome. The breakfast was to die for and room was romantic and beautiful . The views from the room were wonderful. room. I had left a bottle of champagne in the room. When I came back it was in ice bucket. A very nice personal touch.

Cranleigh Bath. Very nice welcome on arrival. Not your usual B&B, great Victorian feel with high ceilings and exceptionally clean. Kids loved the big 'high' beds and had a whale of a time climbing (well bouncing - sorry if they made too much noise) between and under them. Bathroom super, we have two at home and we could almost swap both for this one. Took the advice of other reviews and the owners and went for a meal at the Weston pub in the evening. Had to wait a long time for food as did others - however the landlady couldn't have been more apologetic. Free ice cream for the kids and drinks off the bill for the table next to us. Food very good and customer service you might not expect for one time visitors, it was busier than they had planned for - hats off.
Breakfast in a lovely room saw us through until well past lunchtime and made a nice change from a hotel buffet. There maybe better in the area? Once you find a gem like this, the next time we're in the area we'll stay here. Thank you for a really nice stay. Oh and get your passenger to check space in the car park before you drive down the slope, otherwise an interesting reverse. However owners make this clear before arrival and plenty of space on the road. I was just a little keen to pull in.

Room Tip: Family room has space and large bathroom.

It truly felt like I was a guest in someone's home. My superior twin room was beautifully decorated and spacious. A small chest on the mantle piece contained travel essentials like a toothbrush, razor, emery board, sewing kit etc. that can be forgotten in packing. Denise and Colin were welcoming and accommodating, supplying a complimentary cooked to order breakfast and welcome afternoon tea. Street parking seemed like an easier option than the guest house parking which would mean climbing a sloped driveway. It was an excellent stay and I highly recommend it to everyone.
