    Default Crazy Bear Hotel, Beaconsfield, England


    The Crazy Bear in Beaconsfield is an island of gaudy excess in the heart of the comfortable, conservative Home Counties.


    "Is this perhaps the drug-fuelled fantasy of a rock chick or a Mafia boss?" asks Fiona Duncan, who recently visited the hotel to offer her verdict.


    "Liberace lives," is her reasonable conclusion.



    "The English restaurant provides a welcome contrast to the ostentatious surroundings: sensible, freshly prepared and very well cooked."


    "There’s Persian pony skin on the walls of the bar, which feels like an opulent Napoleonic den."


    "Our room was a modest blood-red-and-black affair in crocodile skin, fur, velvet and chiffon, lit by chandeliers."


    "The bedrooms are each built around a wildly ornate bed, with copper baths filled from the ceiling."


    "One expects to see bowls of cocaine and sofas draped with half-naked women."

    Trashy-but I want to take a bath in one of those copper tubs.

    Gawd... It looks like something Simon and Alex from Real Housewives of NYC would love to stay at.
