Stayed here for a birthday surprise which my partner booked and what a treat. Our stay got off to a bad start as our room wasn't ready when we arrived, however the very professional reception staff were quick to apologise and offered to take our bags to our room whilst we explored the local area. We were also informed of a wedding taking part in the hotel but reassured our room was not near the function room.
Our dual-aspect room (15) had a delightful view of the river and and Marlow bridge, it was tastefully furnished in keeping with the heritage feel of the hotel. The bathroom was small by modern standards (the bath in particular) but the shower was very effective. The hand-written birthday card left in the room was a nice touch.
We ate at the Aubergine restaurant which was excellent (reviewed separately) and which I would highly recommend. The Vanilla Pod in Marlow is also worth seeking out if staying here.
Breakfast served by the river was a mixture of buffet items and cooked to order (I had a delicious Eggs Benedict) and the waiting staff were friendly and courteous.
I would love to stay here again but suspect I might have to wait until my next birthday to justify it!
