We stayed at the Crazy Bear for 1 night and were incredibly disappointed with our room, we had booked a superior room so expected something spectacular, we had seen the photographs of the huge copper bathtubs and opulent rooms. Our room was in the cottage, a short walk along the road. Firstly the bathroom would have been more suited in a hostel, tiny, dirty shower curtain, cracked bathtub, shower that flooded the floor. A shower curtain in a 4* hotel?!
Secondly there were 4 bulbs out in an already dark room.
We had a sitting area downstairs which was totally unnecessary, we didn't use it once, the bedroom upstairs was tiny and dark although the bed was comfortable. We were right next to the road which you would think didn't matter in the middle of the country...we were wrong, from 6am we were woken up by constant traffic.
Breakfast was disappointing although it was included.
We ate at the Thai restaurant which I have to say was delicious although the decor was rather tired, part of the velvet wall covering was hanging off next to us.
On checking out we did complain and the lady was very nice and admitted that the room we had "was like marmite", so clearly had met with a number of complaints in the past. Had we booked a standard room I would have been slightly annoyed but having booked not a deluxe but a superior, 1 below a suite, I was pretty furious!
It isn't cheap and in no way worth what we paid, we tried to swap rooms but they were apparently full.
