    Poor room

    The hotel facilities were lovely. The room was dull, unable to walk around due to low ceilings and no windows. The stairs inside the actually room were dangerous and to steep. Was never asked if my mobility or if I was fit and well when booking this room.....very poor and a ridiculous room for anyone. Not even able to carry belongings up safely!! If I wasn’t in a wedding party I would have wanted to be moved cause unacceptable.

    Stunning venue. Quirky rooms. A little TLC wouldn’t go amiss in the classic bedroom though. Fantastic cocktails. Delicious food. Very polite staff. Will return. Tip - if you’re staying in room 306 the fan outside the room does turn off at the end of the dinner service. Don’t be afraid to ask!

    The room was in a poor state; glass table cracked, carpet and wallpaper lifting. Restaurant staff were rude, unfriendly and unwelcoming.

    Crazy Bear is a hotel that uniquely different. Bohemian style rooms some with cooper baths next to the bed. Great for couples 😉

    Terrible experience, it was our 10 year anniversary so I specifically booked the suite with the free standing bath as shown in the pic and suite as my partner has always wanted to go to make it special. Rather than that we ended up having to follow a staff member 5 minutes down the road to another place in the middle of nowhere on our own, and of course no bath as I payed for. I asked the lady who showed me the room why we have no bath and she said that no rooms in here have a bath but you have a lovely shower 🙄. If I wanted a shower I would have asked for one. It completely ruined our experience as I didn’t book and “garden house suite” which is different from a “suite” on hotels.com. The whole point of going to the crazy bear is to be within the hotel and experience it. We experienced staying in a beautiful shed with nice rooms, I could have done that at home, especially when you pay that silly amount of money you expect to get what you pay for. Once we were leaving the next day I told the staff that I was not happy. At first they said I didn’t have that room because there was a wedding, then it was hotels.com fault for false advertising, who knows...but either way I will be getting this resolved immediately. Anyone who wants to stay here make sure you ring them first and find out what you’re getting, hopefully it won’t be 400 pounds worth of disappointment like mine was.

  • 4.0.Fair

    This place gives a lot of expectation but does not deliver. The room was poorly laid out and in definite need of refurbishment with 2x iron marks on the carpet, shower curtain smelt mouldy and the staircase needed repainting. I understand the idea of opulence but the lighting is too low and felt depressing after a while. The service and food were also not that great. Not a place I would ever return to and left feeling very disappointed.
