#5 of 6 in Beaconsfield
The Crazy Bear Beaconsfield opened in 2008 to spectacular international reviews including Conde Nast's Red Hot List for best new hotels in the world. The oldest documented building in Beaconsfield, a fifteenth century coaching inn, has been meticulously restored and elaborately designed to provide dramatic architecture and uncompromised luxury. The Crazy Bear Beaconsfield is a unique oasis in quintessential England and the antithesis to bland hotels.

After visiting the extremely small over hyped Thai restaurant my partner and I both got food poisoning and spent the night being sick in our small over priced room. When we raised this with the management team they assured us a thorough investigation would take place. 2 weeks AFTER we stayed they claimed their audit company found no signs of fault and our sickness couldn’t possibly be their food. Yeah sure 👍🏻 I spent an absolute fortune only for the weekend to be ruined and when we suggested a partial refund as a good will gesture this was completely dismissed by the manager. It’s a shame I only went and checked these reviews after our awful experience because it seems we’re not the only ones. Do yourself a favour, AVOID!! Save your money!

The most horrible expensive experience of my life. Complete scammers. Went to crazy bear for the night with thai dinner and breakfast inc for around £400. Got there around 2, the ambience and the decor is amazing. The pool side seating is so relaxing. Had few drinks and a bite to eat. Sweet potato chips and garlic bread with cocktails. Which they charged arm and a leg. Went to the room at 4, so disappointed to see only their private tvchannels, and if want to watch a movie have to pay ££7.99. Had a rest in the room, went for thai food where we were told the wine is on them but was charged £20 at the end. Me and my partner shared all the food except their prawn curry . He does not like prawns. Coming back to the room,i started feeling uncomfortable and got palpitations. Hardly could sleep. Next morning went for our included breakfast which was more than horrible so had to order english breakfast which was over priced and hardly any good. Got back home with pain in my belly and by evening was throwing up and diarhea so bad for next 4 days that  could not even move. Emailed the hotel about this but they send me replying its not their food. I haf home cooked dal and rice before leaving for the hotel. And only home cooked days before. I feel better now but pls pls avoid this hotel . Overpriced, bad food. Just go to see the ambience and drinks people. Not worth it Suffered a lot. Lost lot of money being self employed.

At the age of 32 I consider myself very lucky to have never been mugged. However, having experienced the one evening stay I recently had at the crazy bear in Beaconsfield at the eye watering sum of £325 a night (without a real breakfast included) I now consider myself a victim of such a crime. Before I outline some distinct problematic areas the crazy bear struggles with it’s important to highlight the general hotel should not be considered a five star establishment. Yes the concept is quirky and fun, however, the overall building feels tired and therefore the execution of such a concept misses the the mark completely and feels more like an upmarket Butlins resort. The check in available to guests is at the inconvenient time of 4pm and the checkout is 11am, worth mentioning at this stage the crazy bear threatens guests with a £20 fine should you over run your exit with leaving the premises. Our room, although interesting in its design and colour scheme didn’t feel clean. There is limited complimentary water and NO fridge to accommodate any drinks be it in the shape of a mini bar or beverages brought onto the premises. The reason for this is very simple, the Crazy bear tries to suck everyone pound possible out of you from the moment you walk onto the site. A peach Bellini will run you £15 with obligatory 15% service charge for example. Personally, I believe it was the experience of breakfast where this thesis really came true. Once we made it clear we didn’t want to pay for the additional cooked breakfast (so we had to settle for old cardboard hard pastries) the waitress decided not to bring out tea or coffee almost as if because we didn’t order the additional breakfast we became second class citizens. For the record it took 25 minutes to receive a coffee from walking into the English restaurant dining room. To summarise, the crazy bear is “crazy” money, as a hotel it doesn’t even come close to warranting it’s outrageous price tags. Much like the decor, the service is also tired and in need of a refurbishment. I will never return to the crazy bear in my life. Avoid at ALL costs.

Was not allowed in as it was to late ? Then witnessed others being allowed in , most strange maybe we didn’t fit the criteria, not sure why as we are all business owners ? With money to spend ., I guess if they have enough business they can be like this

Very nice food- but we used a voucher and wouldn't like to pay full price. Very tasty sandwiches and cake. Good service. Adventure to the 'ladies' where two men had mistaken the toilets. Easy as no signage. Decor is unbelievable. We had a champagne in the bar afterwards and admired the amazing animals and lovely outside space. This place is unique. I can not comment on rooms but for a drink/ tea it is very different and quirky.
