The Cranley Hotel Review

Old-fashioned British propriety is the overall feeling at this small, Victorian town-house hotel, where high ceilings, huge windows, and a pale, creamy color scheme flood the bedrooms with light. Antique desks and four-poster or half-tester beds lend an air of historic authenticity, and even the bathrooms have traditional Victorian fittings (although the plumbing is completely modern). Afternoon tea and evening canapés, served with a glass of champagne, are complimentary—welcome after a long day of sightseeing.
