The Cranley is a lovely, comfortable hotel with an obliging staff. The hotel is situated in a pleasant and quiet neighborhood but there are plenty of pubs and restaurants...

We chose the Cranley Hotel to stay at on the night of our wedding in Chelsea. They treated us to champagne, strawberries and the most divine chocolate cake on arrival.

Staying in South Kensington

Neighbourhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
