excellent service & perfect riverside setting

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 20 Feb 2023
had a fantastic overnight stay at this lovely hotel overlooking the Thames, I paid extra to upgrade to a river view & it was well worth it, Yuris on reception made sure we had the upgraded room we asked for & looked after us very well. went to the indian restaurant inside the hotel which was superb for our evening meal, excellent breakfast in the morning

        Thank you for a lovely one night stay. Sam and Humaira at reception were kind and helpful.
        Lovely room with fantastic view. Marlow is a quaint town with a selection of interesting shops, bars & restaurants.
        Most grateful !

        We booked a Super Deluxe Double as we have done many times before. Our last visit was three years ago & standards have dropped dramatically since then. The room was in urgent need of refurbishment - a shredded curtain, a hole in the bedspread, a badly stained stool & a towel so threadbare it had holes in it. The only redeeming feature was the view of the river which the hotel cannot take credit for.
        The breakfast service in the restaurant left much to be desired. We purposely ate late to avoid the business guests so the restaurant was far from full but the service was very poor. On two occasions we had to ask to place our order & guests arriving after us were served first - very frustrating. The restaurant staff were polite but obviously inexperienced. There were managers present but they did not appear to notice any shortcomings or do anything to rectify the situation. We resorted to room service which was ok but always something got forgotten.

        This hotel no longer deserves its 4* rating.

        Booked into this hotel for a break with family. Complimentary room upgrade welcome - thank you. But the hotel generally was a bit tired, expensive and at times disorganised, especially around meals. Our food was cold and this was not rectified.
        This could be an amazing hotel in a fabulous setting.

        Room tip: Great views, take warm clothes for the restaurants
