I was lucky enough for my twin sister Zoe, to treat us both to a night at The Crazy Bear Hotel, Beaconsfield, for our 27th Birthday last year and it was by far the most extravagant gift that I have ever received! Everything about this Hotel screams luxury, opulence and splendour.
Let me take you on a journey through our experience…
A warm welcome
The hotel itself is situated in Beaconsfield’s oldest documented building. The entrance is quite understated, in fact you could easily miss it save for the distinctive wooden doors and a large, carved wooden bear statue. Upon arrival the team at reception greeted us and offered a complimentary glass of Champagne while we were checked in and our luggage was carried to the suite. Shortly after we had settled into our room, a member of staff returned with a bottle of Champagne Cuvée Tsarine, this was also complimentary.
Our Room- Junior Suite 9
The lavish décor of each room really does start right from the doorways, which are covered in quilted, deep purple, crushed velvet with ornate handles. Our room had cream leather flooring and was beautifully furnished. The bed was an ornate Rococo style frame with vibrant upholstery in the head and foot boards, above was a section of mirrored ceiling; perhaps with lovers in mind. Green velvet pillows were placed on the bed matching the room’s Victorian style sofa in forest green velvet and dark wood. There was a small dining table for two in case of ordering room service. Stood at the foot of our bed was a huge, slipper bath tub. This hotel is known for these baths made from copper and big enough for two, that fill from the ceiling… yes, that’s right, water cascades from the ceiling! The splendour of the interior continues into the bathroom which had a heated floor, mirrored walls in the shower, dark marble surfaces and two copper sinks matching the bath. As with most hotels, toiletries are provided however since the baths are so luxurious you will not want to get out and so I recommend packing bath bombs to elevate the experience that much further.
The hotel bar and Terrace
The hotel bar is utterly extravagant and boasts some very over the top décor. There is more crushed velvet on the furniture upholstery, cushions and curtains. Rococo style chairs and tables painted in silver sit opposite a wall of leather seating. Huge chandeliers hang from the ceiling while candles and oil lamps provide additional ambience. Most famously, this area of the hotel has an abundance of exotic taxidermy including a giraffe, zebras, peacocks, colourful parrots and more. The bar is fully stocked, offers a great cocktail menu and over 30 different Champagne choices. If you are a lover of Champagne then you might take advantage of ‘Champagne Wednesdays’ were the hotel offers their full range for half price. It is in the bar that the hotel serves a continental breakfast spread with a variety of breads, cheeses, cereal, cold meats, bakery items, fruit juices and hot beverages.
The Crazy bear also has a beautiful outdoor area with a pool, Jacuzzi, plenty of outdoor seating and sun umbrellas. The Hotel hosts events and parties which make use of this space in the summer. Tickets to their events can be purchased on their website. Between the Bar and Terrace you will find the Moroccan Lounge which is a wonderfully vibrant and relaxing space filled with Middle Eastern style textiles and furnishings.
Overall our stay at the Crazy Bear was comfortable, stylish and unforgettable. It is clear that the Hotel seeks to insert glamour and luxury at every possible opportunity and leave a lasting impression. I assure you, a stay at this hotel will have you wanting to book your next stay immediately. If you are looking for a way to treat yourself or some one else, then this will definitely leave them feeling spoilt.
