Service prior to and during the stay was great and the team worked hard to get a room available early for us to get into as we were going to a wedding in the village. I just felt disappointed with the room given the Bears reputation. Stayed in #14 in the main hotel. It was tiny! The hotel had kindly put a mobile AC unit in there which was appreciated but was so noisy, the pipe from it had to dangle out of the window and was kicking heat right onto one side of the bed. You couldnt walk around it to get in and out of bed so it wasn't a peaceful sleep. The room decor I appreciate is trying to be unique but I just felt it looked dated. Only 2 downlights in the main room even turned up bright weren't enough to see to get ready. I had no chance doing make up in the black bathroom. The mirrors in the room and bathroom you can see have been broken and 'fixed' poorly. Worst for me was the steps. Lighting in the stairwell, whilst atmospheric, is poor to say the least to deliniate between carpeted floor and steps. I fell down a step and spilt the complimentary champers all down my wedding outfit and fell up a step into the room. Nightmare. Breakfast was ok. Nice selection but would like to have seen some method of keeping the flies off the food laid out. I lost my appetite shortly after sitting down looking at buzzy friends tucking into their brekkie :(. Overall, intreaguing space. Service polite. Wouldn't stay again for the money.

Crazy and funky bear
The décor and ambience of this hotel is of course the feature of this hotel and did not disappoint, We stayed in a suite with brass bath at the foot of the bed and amazing décor generally. Food was good and the service especially at breakfast was excellent. Lots of quaint villages in the surrounding area.

Perfect for a couples retreat
The Crazy Bear is amazing, really different and very cool, perfect for a romantic retreat. Room was weird but in a really cool way and the staff were all both really helpful and really friendly. its a place of pure escape!
