- A few things -
The Cranley Hotel is truly a home away from home in South Kensington, a predominately residential part of London. Comprised of three Victorian townhomes which date back to 1869, the laid-back atmosphere, mixed with impeccable service and personal touch make The Cranley a special place. Less hotel and more private residence, the property is perfect for those who love living like a local would, without sacrificing personable service.
