  • Paul & Christina says:

    This was our 3rd stay at the Cranleigh, this time in Room 8. We love the Cranleigh, it’s our favourite hotel in the whole of Bowness especially with it being so close to the centre of town. We of course paid a visit to Baha to take advantage of the website discount. We didn’t eat but enjoyed the amazing cocktails.
    The breakfast was as good as ever and the staff were super friendly and helpful.
    We will definitely be back and will try out one of the other amazing rooms.
    Many thanks.

  • Andy G says:

    Had a fantastic night away at the Cranleigh hotel. The room we stayed in was to a high standard, clean and very comfy. The staff were really helpful and friendly and gave great information where to visit. Ideally located for restaurants, bars and shops. The only minor negative was the parking or lack of spaces for the hotel but that wasn’t a massive issue and the overall stay over shadowed this.
    Will definitely be visiting again and hoping to stay in one of the other themed rooms.
