“Wonderful B & B experience”
Reviewed 21 September 2006

We spent 2 nights at the Cranleigh and were very pleased with the accommodations and quality of service. What you can expect : spacious and attractive rooms, friendly and attentive service, great breakfast experience. The B & B is about a mile from town, so you can either use the park and drive , take a bus or take a cab into town. The Cranleigh has three 3rd floor rooms, which is a bit of a climb - so it's worthwhile clarifying your preference for a 2nd floor room prior to arrival if stairs are a problem . Two rooms had problems with hot water while we were there - also worthwhile asking owners about . The owners recommended the Globe pub/restaurant to us during our stay and we highly recommend it - great quality food, non smoking environment and pleasant staff.

  • Liked — Large, well appointed rooms.
  • Disliked — Stairs to 3rd floor

We stayed at this lovely B+B for a long weekend, to celebrate my birthday. This is a B+B which could easily be mistaken for a hotel, way above average for what we expected to find for a B+B. We stayed on the first floor in a four poster bedroom, which had lovely views to the back of the garden and avon valley. Breakfast was absolutley delicious, you could smell the freshly baked croissants every morning. I recommend trying the pancakes with maple syrup and strawberries, delicious.
On sunday we booked the hot tub which is located in the garden, next to it you'll find a summerhouse with a minibar, very useful, and we had a great time in the hot tub!
Cranleigh is situated on top of Newbridge hill, which makes for lovely views, and don't forget to have a sunday roast at the riverside pub The Boathouse, which is in walking distance. the Owners will be happy to let you know directions, as they are very friendly indeed. Bath is a lovely town and the surrounding countryside is stunning, all in all we had a lovely weekend in bath and this B+B, and a well needed break from London. We''l be back asap.

  • Liked — attention to deatil and the breakfast, views everything really
  • Disliked — distance to bath city centre, if I had to choose something at all
  • Tips/Secrets — check out the riverside Pub 'The Boathouse'

We spent two lovely nights at Cranleigh during a 10 day trip to the UK. The rooms are beautifully elegant with high ceilings, special details along with terrific furniture. Bathrooms are also lovely. Breakfast was delicious and the hosts are helpful but not at all intrusive. They are also testing email access for guests on the computer in the reception area. We didn't try the hot tub but I am sure it would have been great. The house is beautiful on the outside and our bay window looked out over the city. This is as advertised - I don't have any hesitation encouraging to book Cranleigh.

Stayed June 2006

We are a family of 4, 2 adults and 2 teenagers and we stayed in a family room at Cranleigh.

I must say that after some of the rooms we have had this one was one of the best we had stayed in – and very good value for money. It was huge – plenty big enough for us all – with full size beds and a huge bathroom that even my teenage daughter could not complain about. Breakfast definitely filled us up for the day – and my kids were pleased to see that they could have home made pancakes with maple syrup. All in all this was the best place we stayed - none of the places matched up to the service and standard of Cranleigh.

  • Liked — Room size and standard of fixtures and fittings
  • Disliked — nothing
  • Tips/Secrets — book in advance if you want to use the garden hot tub
