If you are from the City and used to small noisy rooms and fancy a hotel with individual funky rooms and two quite nice restaurants - this is the place for you. Get a deal on Groupon. Personally I am not - it's midnight and the loud generator, music,people and waterfall noise I can hear in room 311 is keeping...

We stayed here on a groupon last year and we've rebooked again for next year. It was brilliant. The food in the Thai restaurant was lovely. The atmosphere and bathtub in the middle of the room was amazing. We had a massage each which was lovely. Very funky and trendy.

Even tho we were cancelling 5 months earlier could not get money back. Hotel rang repeatedly offering other dates i.e on a Thursday?? In the end we visited last...

If you are looking for a treat, look no further than the Crazy Bear. Delicious food in gorgeous surroundings. The restaurant and bar area is quite small, but if you go exploring through the gardens you will find beautiful hidden treasures. Highly recommend a visit.

The crazy bear is in the middle of country side 8miles away from Oxford. Reception is a red double decker bus. Our junior suite was quite unique. Padded walls and ceilings, water tap for bath came from ceiling, this meant there were water stains on ceiling and smelt a title fousty. There are 2 restaurants, English and Thai . The...

Rather strange 70s like decor in room but comfortable bed and unique infinity bath. Odd that the usual basics in a hotel are not in place, Ie tea coffee making facilities and lack of lighting to do make up and hair. However the 7 course taster menu was excellent, good quality produce and really good flavours, well done to the...

Looks nice from outside. room was ok. Dinner took ages and was ok but not great. Breakfast was cold service was slow and not very helpful. For how much it costs don't think I would go back. Paid half the price and got better rooms food and service in different hotels.

I called to make a reservation for my wife's birthday and the woman on the end of the phone was so rude and unhelpful I didn't bother to book. Plenty more decent hotels to choose from with polite staff. Won't ever be booking with this place. I look forward to checking in at a hotel that has better reviews and...

We went for my birthday for a night, I love the decor, everything was amazing except the room wasn't as clean as I would expect for the money and there was a ants nest on our balcony which should have been sorted! The Thai restaurant was lovely-couldn't fault it at all! Staff were all very welcoming and friendly 😊 would...
