Just returned from a two night stay for a quick honeymoon break. We stayed in Luxury room 6 which is at the front of the hotel and is very quiet. The hotel lived up to our expectations but I would add that whilst the room was very well done, it was quite a bit smaller than I was expecting and the biggest issue for us the temperature in the room (no air conditioning) which made sleep very difficult when you consider we stayed in the middle of a heat wave.
Having said the above, nothing can detract from the quality of the place and boy were the breakfasts amazing. Location is excellent (really excellent) and the staff were very nice but sill professional. Would definitely stay again but would pay more attention to the weather first...

Luxury by any standards. A bit on the expensive side but an experience to be tried at least once. The hideaway is superb with its own jacuzzi and the whole room is simply sumptuous. The glass bath is something else.

We stayed here as part of an anniversary weekend away. We did not find that the property matched up to the glowing reviews previously written. The front desk staff were laid back and far from helpful. Our standard room was hot, tasteless and noisy. I've had better breakfast at the Holiday Inn. I'm afraid I saw none of the famed luxury of hospitality that has been previously written about.

Room Tip: Try a room in a different hotel.

What a place!
We stayed in The Sanctuary Suite which certainly lived up to the name.
A romantic hideaway with a huge bed, every little detail taken care of and a gorgeous, luxurious, modern bathroom!
The hot tub certainly is the crowning glory of this room and definitely worth the extra cost, who needs use of the near by spa centre when you can cosy up in there with a glass of fizz!
We arrived on a wet miserable afternoon and that lifted our spirits immensely, nothing quite like a balmy 37 degree dip in the bubbles to cheer you up.

Service was impeccable, we weren't bothered once and everyone we came across was helpful, smily and looked like they loved their job

The facilities are second to none and every whim is taken care of by the attentive reception staff.

Breakfast was a highlight, just simply delicious. A credit to the hotel

Nothing beats a great nights sleep in a peaceful room followed by Eggs Royale and a coffee, just bliss.

A slice of luxury we were both sad to leave behind but will live with us forever, we're already planning a return trip.

Quite simply the most perfect place we could have picked for our first mini break, just excellent!

Room Tip: Stretch your budget and book a suite, the surprise of which one you'll get adds to the excitemen...

We stayed here for 2nts on a little honeymoon after getting married on 12th July. We stayed in room 11 which was just perfect! The little extras like the chocolates and rose petals in the bed just made it so so romantic! Each time we left the room we came back to a little box of chocolates on the pillow which was so thoughtful. Breakfast on both mornings was fantastic and the staff were brilliant. Will be planning the next trip as soon as we get home .. Can't wait to come back!!!

We stayed in the room with the terrace and it was lovely. The small touches like the air bath, chocolates on the bed, telly in the bathroom really make you feel pampered and special. The staff at breakfast were lovely and accommodating. And the breakfast was lovely . Thank you for a lovely stay.

Me and my husband stayed at The Hideout for 2nights for our 'mini-moon' after getting married. The staff at The Cranleigh were really helpful. The Hideout is amazing and perfect for a treat,the breakfast, complementary items and box of chocolates were all great extras. 1 night would not be long enough, we can't wait to go back. Without a doubt the best place we have stayed
