A Victorian townhouse hotel in London's upmarket South Kensington - includes breakfast, late check-out and an optional four-poster room

Tucked away on a magnificent Victorian row near Exhibition Road and Chelsea's hotspots, The Cranley Hotel enjoys some of the most iconic surroundings in the capital. Its neighbours include The Natural History Museum, the V&A and the Royal Albert Hall, not to mention the well-heeled, Chanel-clad South Kensington set.

Fitting in with its glamorous location, The Cranley Hotel has quintessentially English interiors with crackling fires, deep armchairs, antique Regency furnishings and exquisite service. Kick-start your days here with breakfast in the lobby or outdoor terrace, and in the evening, you can relax with bubbles and canapes.
