We visited as a special dinner treat at Bowaters and had a very memorable and delightful dinner.

The service shown was second to none and faultless and the food and wine perfectly complemented one another for each course.

As a special treat the dinner was exceptional and reasonable value. We look forward to visiting in the near future.

We spent a most enjoyable one night stay in a Classic room at this hotel. The room was clean and comfortable with a beautiful view of the river as it tumbled over the weir. We received first-class service from all the staff and the food in the Bowater restaurant was excellent. Our waiter, Vivek, was very attentive, courteous and helpful. We would certainly recommend this hotel and fully intend to pay another visit.

Room Tip: Ask for a river view.

We stayed two nights and were delighted with this hotel. The location, on the banks of the Thames and overlooking Marlow Bridge and the church is simply splendid. A very warm welcome on arrival and our room, with a superb view of the bridge, river and church, was spotlessly clean, comfortable and well appointed. This hotel retains the quintessential English charm and character and appears extremely well run. All staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast offered a wide choice of tasty ingredients and was served with skill and efficiency. Dinner in Bowaters Restaurant was preceded by cocktails with an excellent pianist in the bar. The fillet steak was some of the best we have tasted. A huge and tempting selection of wines, including some good dessert wines and port - and not over-priced either.
Yes, of course you can find cheaper places to stay but the Compleat Angler is excellent value for money and I would thoroughly recommend a stay here. Particular praise is due for all the staff we encountered - including reception, bar and waiting staff. All were impeccably dressed, friendly and eager to please. Thank you.

Thank you for taking the time to leave such a kind and detailed review of your recent visit to the Compleat Angler. I was pleased to hear that you found us to be the quintessential English charming hotel as this is in keeping with the small town of Marlow in which we are situated. It is always a pleasure to read how much our guests enjoy their stay with us and you were able to enjoy dinner in our Bowaters restaurant followed by cocktails in our lounge whilst listening to our pianist. I was particularly pleased that you have given praise to the entire team, from the reception right the way through to the kitchen. I will share your feedback with the team and be sure to include housekeeping who were responsible for your spotlessly clean room.

I look forward to welcoming you back to the Compleat Angler in the not too distant future.

Kind regards

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.
