We stayed at the Cranford Oak Motel for 2 nights, the room was clean and comfortable, with a lovely kitchenette. There was no problem when we asked for an extra hour for checking out. Would also recommend the Cranford Ale House across the road, we had a lovely meal there.

The first night I was there a manager unlocked my room at night to show another guest her room 😮 Quickly realised his mistake and locked up again taking her to the adjacent room but didn't apologise to me although I stayed for 4 days. Not okay. I wouldn't stay there again.

lovely property, nice clean kitchenette with microwave and toaster. I liked that there was dark face cloths and also cotton buds, and cotton pads which was nice. Bed was a bit soft for me but still nice. Only real downside was being able to hear other people in there rooms. Would stay again but would ask for an upstairs room.
