“Half marathon”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2013 via mobile

It's a lovely place where the hotel is located. Unfortunately we didnt have much of a view from our room. Likewise, had to insist for a nicer table at the restaurant. Steak price beats any London steakhouse price, but dinner is nice. A bit of a brush up in the room would help. Staff was lovely though.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I am pleased to read that you found the location of the Compleat Angler to be well located on the bank of the river Thames. Unfortunately not all of our rooms offer a river view. Upon booking with us in the future may I suggest that you discuss the options of upgrading to one of our executive rooms which have river views or indeed one of our feature rooms which have a balcony overlooking the weir. I am pleased to hear that our restaurant team were able to assist you with your request for nicer table in our restaurant - our window tables looking out onto the Thames prove to be very popular. A refurbishment of our Bowaters restaurant is planned for early 2014 and is part of our ongoing commitment to ensure that the Compleat Angler maintains the highest standards. I will share your comments with the team and look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

Kind regards

A short weekend break at this wonderful riverside hotel. We are fans of the Macdonald hotel chain having stayed at a number before. The staff were superb and the room excellent with great views over the river. Food and wine, as always, very good. They even went the extra mile by bringing a personsl card and a box of chocolates for my wife as it was a combined anniversary and birthday break. Thoroughly recommend this hotel and feel sure we will be back.

From the moment we arrived the efficiency, competence and consideration given by the staff at this picturesque hotel was AMAZING. We were given an unexpected upgrade to our room booking as I mentioned we were celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary. The room faced the River Thames with views of Marlow Bridge the church and weir, was well appointed and comfortable. We had dinner and breakfast with the booking, with a good choice of well prepared and delicious meals. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a romantic weekend on the Thames valley.

It was my pleasure to read that you chose the Compleat Angler for your
anniversary celebrations and how much you enjoyed the experience. I am delighted that the Compleat Angler team were able to identify that is was your 10th anniversary and managed to make your stay amazing. We have recently sent all of our staff on a course entitled “Commitment to Excellence”. Feedback such as yours reassures me that the course has been a real success, as your posting indicates our team here at the Compleat Angler are putting into practice what they have learnt.

It will be my pleasure to share your review with the rest of the team and I hope that we have the pleasure of welcoming you here again soon.

Kind regards

Whilst recently staying in Marlow we visted the Hotel for afternoon tea. The setting was lovely with beautiful views out over the The Thames made especially attractive by the Autumn sun. We opted for the full afternoon tea and whilst it was on the pricey side there was a huge amount to enjoy. Service was excellent and well worth a visit. (A note to the staff though the windows and frames need a good clean!)
