The decadently decorated boudoirs are positively dripping with opulent chandeliers, huge gilded mirrors, heavy tasselled drape curtains and luxuriously plump and pillowy beds. Think Henry VIII, in entertaining mode...

Aptly self-described as ‘the antithesis to bland hotels’, this exclusive boutique hotel - one of a small and esteemed group of The Crazy Bear properties - knows how to pamper you mercilessly. While away the hours in a majestic armchair quaffing cocktails and nibbling tapas in the opulent bar, or if the weather treats you well, head outside for a dip in the outdoor pool and Jacuzzi.
