Just come back from a weekend break and can't speak highly enough about the Cransley, spotlessly clean beautiful house and fabulous food. Stayed in room 9 which was excellent. Hosts Simon and Jonathan were exceptional with hospitality and local knowledge. Many thanks from Graham and Becky we will see you again!

I stayed at the Cransley for three nights back in May of 2016, before going on to spend two further nights in nearby Lymington. As I had never visited the Dorset or Hampshire area before, I carried out quite a bit of research to try to find places which would be a comfortable sleep, not too expensive, and not too...

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Cransley hotel. I was made to feel extremely welcome every single day I stayed. Simon and Jonathan offered the most excellent hospitality! Highly recommend! I will certainly be booking again if I'm to ever visit Bournemouth soon.

Just had to say what a lovely place to stay. Beautiful decoration. Homely and immaculate . Very comfortable and friendly hosts . Close to both Bournemouth centre and Boscombe. We did not have breakfast as it was not available this weekend but I am sure it would have been lovely. A couple of excellent places in boscombe for breakfast. Little...

Located in a quiet, tree lined avenue in Bournemouth, ideal location for central areas and also major road networks. I could not fault this B and B, the décor throughout was top notch and clearly an awful lot of thought has gone into the design and layout of both the shared and bedroom areas. The hosts were both never less...

Cransley's run by two charming chaps who clearly go the extra mile for their guests. It's in a good location: quiet while being central and near the beach. Very clean, good breakfast too. Good value and highly recommended.

My father, wife and I stayed here 6 years ago and found it to be excellent so we decided to come again on our next visit to Bournemouth. Cransley is an Edwardian villa which is quite stunning in its decoration of the public areas being furnished with great style and panache. It could be taken straight from a glossy magazine...

Picture yourself on a seat by a fountain Where giant old pine trees point up to blue skies Sunshine glows boldly, the music plays lowly You’ll feel so incredibly high. Yes it’s been another good "trip" to the Cransley where Jonathan and Simon provide a great small country house hotel experience,and where you can luxuriate in an ambience of distinctive...

We've just enjoyed a great stay at Cransley, an exceptional, peaceful place to stay in a quiet part of town but still close enough to the centre. Ample parking is provided. The friendly owners provided us with a very welcome cup of tea on our arrival and supplied lots of local information to help us enjoy our stay. The accommodation...

We have visited Bournemouth many times before and stayed in quite a few B&B's and hotels, but the Cransley is definitely the best value for money. The room was exactly as described in pictures, unlike other places that use photo trickery. Our hosts Jonathan and Simon really made us feel at home from the get go and they couldn't do...
