We went for Afternoon Tea last Wednesday. The tea and Coffee were served just after we ordered the Afternoon Tea. 12 minutes later the tray of food arrived. By this time the tea and coffee were cool and when we got to the end of the food they were both cold. The hot drinks should be served at the same... More

Everything about this visit was fantastic. I brought my friend here and it was also the first time I had visited despite living in River. The staff were helpful and polite, and the food was superb. What more do you want?

We stayed for one night on a meal and stay package. The hotel is an old building which has been modernised internally. The modern décor in the bar/lounge area does not quite work but the dinning area is nice with a feature of exposed brickwork. Our room (called Malmains) was at the top of a steep staircase and overlooked the... More

We visited the Marquis for some relaxation and it was lovely from start to finish. The food in the restaurant was gorgeous, especially the desert. Our room was lovely and comfortable and had everything that we needed. The biscuits made by the hotel are also a lovely touch. Will definitely be returning.

A friendly, welcoming hotel and restaurant with excellent cuisine and super comfortable rooms. Modern decor with a relaxed feel, bedrooms are spacious with coffee machines and tea etc. making facilities. Dinning menu changes often and is of a very high standard. Staff were friendly and obliging.

We have visited The Marquis quite a number of times. I suspect a change of management.. as the service was so slow. We arrived for our table at 7.30 & was shown to the bar, we ordered a bottle of wine.. which was not even offered to taste & the bottle was just put on the table, he returned some... More

Not the first time we have been to the Marquis and must say that the food was up to its usual high standard but the lunch somewhat spoilt by service. The youngsters who were serving us tried there best but they were really in need of training and some supervision.

We had both cottages for 6 of us for 2 nights as we were attending a wedding at the nearby Old Kent Barn. They are well furnished, clean and comfortable. We were lucky with the weather and were able to sit outside late into the night. The area directly in front of the cottages is beautiful and the only sounds... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Come on in. Take a look around. You might just be surprised. For while the Alkham Valley, indeed Alkham village itself, suggests genteel old England at its most rural and unspoiled, the Marquis itself is something else... It's a strikingly contemporary restaurant and hotel. The product of a major renovation in 2008, what was once the village's pub, The Marquis of Granby, has been utterly transformed. Space, light, fine furnishings and beautiful fabrics and the opportunity to fine tune every detail hasn't been missed. The restaurant is a revelation. Head Chef Andrew King's seasonally inspired and locally sourced menus are as fresh as they are imaginative, and the elegant 21st century styling is exceptional. Queen sized pocket sprung beds are swathed in the finest cotton. Sumptuous fabrics dress windows and chairs. And an eclectic collection of art completes the mood, the mix and the personality that makes this place unique. Boutique chic in the heart of the English countryside? You've found it. You've arrived. ... more   less
