Me and my boyfriend booked this hotel just for one night as we was out in that area and it was reasonably priced. After reading the reviews I didn't expect too much from it, but after arriving it turned out to be better than I thought, the room wasn't massive but big enough for the two of us, it was...

We had planned on staying one night but ended being there for two nights to break a long journey. The staff were warm, friendly and welcoming. We stayed in a twin room which was cramped with hardly any room to move but it was clean and we had a good night's sleep. The ensuite shower and toilet was also quite...

Very surprised by the clean comfortable room for the price paid and a lovely breakfast included. Perfect for visiting London by train as just a few minutes walk from the station and with a travelcard costing just £12.10 for the day worth every penny. Stayed so that we could watch the LondonSurrey 100 cycle ride and if you are considering...

Very bad location ,did not feel one bit safe. The staff who were all very helpful and polite were double jobbing. The waitress doubled up as a cleaner , the hotel receptionist doubled up as the barperson so underpaid and overworked I suspect with a boss I'm sure that only cares about profit and no thought for staff.There is no...

The double room I booked was too small like the size of a box room . It was too hot in the room even after opening windows and doors . Requested for a fan couple of times but did not provide one . Could not sleep all night .. Only good thing was the breakfast in the morning .

After being double booked at a sister hotel I was relocated the Cranford. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Room was small and stuffy on the warm nights but clean with a comfortable bed. Bathroom was clean and up to date. Shower was disappointing and a shelf to put a sponge bag would have been useful. Tea and coffee making facilities...
