I recently had to stay in East Grinstead on business, I used to live locally so knew the location well. Brian & Aileen were perfect hosts, the room was clean, nicely decorated with all the needs for a short stay met. I had a good night's sleep feeling refreshed for the day. The optional breakfast was a delight - I...

Dissapointing, aged B&B, basic accomodation. Shower did not work either too hot or too cold, host didnt seem overly concernedwhen complained Price would be reasonable if breakfast was included but you had to pay extra for this which again was over priced. In general not again, there are other better options out there

Hello Mark, Thank you for your review. Following your complaint at check out about the malfunctioning shower, I apologised to you and your wife for the inconvenience and said I would check the problem at once which I did on your departure. You were quite right the shower was fluctuating through hot and cold cycles. This fault had not been...

We stayed here july 30th to attend a friends 40th birthday who lived nearby. The room was advertised as spacious and fully equipped. We had to go down to reception and ask for an iron and board. We stayed in room 4, right at the top of the building. Well the tag spacious would have been true if you were...

Visited while on a cycle tour. Brian and his wife looked after us very well. From helping us with taxis to storing our bikes, they could not have been more helpful. The house is spacious and welcoming, situated in a quiet residential area, but within easy walking distance to the town centre. The bedrooms were well equipped and comfortable. Breakfast...

I chose Cranston house as it was central to my family. What a lovely surprise ! Quiet rooms with invisible cleaning fairies that came every day. The hosts Brian and Aileen were unintrusive but always helpful with any requests. The bar fridge with soft drinks only was useful as was the kettle . The hosts were happy to have you...

Coming to east grinstead once a month, this is the most beautiful and quiet hotel I found. Aileen and Brian are almost nowhere to be seen, but magically, as soon as you need something, they appear, always with a kind word, and a smile on their faces. This is what I call service! The rooms are incredibly clean, anytime a...

I was in East Grinstead to catch up with friends and chose Cranston House because of the good reviews and the fact that it is within walking distance of the town centre. I was not disappointed. The first plus was the large car park at the front of the house which took the car off the road. Aileen was welcoming...
