Having stayed here before and had a fantastic stay, we decided to make a return visit. We had a great room with amazing views over the water and bridge. The Hotel continues to deliver a very high standard of service, with lovely staff. The location is outstanding on the edge of the Thames and situated in the lovely town of... More

We stayed at the hotel earlier this month, when attending a friend's wedding. The wedding was superb, much of which was due the wonderful location on the Thames riverbank, and in the lovely village of Marlow. It's a brilliant location, the hotel and the village have much to offer for a get-away from it break. The ceremony was beautifully done... More

My fiancée and I arrived at the hotel on a Saturday afternoon. The service was friendly and the hall way had a pleasant Christmas smell. Our luggage was taken to our room (4 poster in the old hotel part) and dropped off. Before we even had a look round, a butler with a bottle of Prosecco arrived - nice touch.... More

Beautiful location, comfortable room, pleasant staff, but breakfast service was poor although the restaurant wasn't busy and there were plenty of staff on duty. On the first morning my cooked food arrived with an addition which I hadn't ordered; on the second day there was something missing. Reminders were needed to get tea and toast on both days and our...

Beautiful place in excellent location. Comfortable clean rooms. Ours overlooked the weir! Perfect place! The staff are all excellent and the meals delicious. As I am diabetic I requested a fruit platter for dessert, which was duly produced. My suggestion would be to add this to the menu. So many others looked at it and would have liked it. Lots... More

Firstly, we have stayed here before and had no cause to complain, so this is a balanced review. We travel up here as a pre-Christmas treat, meeting up with friends for a meal every year. The hotel is lovely, in a lovely situation in a lovely town and for that we are happy to pay accordingly. I always say you... More

We had our Christmas party here and I was privileged enough to have the opportunity to stay. The bedroom was nicely decorated which is in keeping with the hotel. The bed was very comfortable. The front desk staff and the concierge were very polite and courteous. The breakfast was delicious. One snag as I was with a group on the... More

One night stay over for a management meeting. We were well looked after during the meeting. I arrived very low on petrol and the staff we kind enough to get a can of petrol for me car so I would comfortably get to a petrol station the next day. Nothing was too much trouble. Lovely room with a river view.... More

Have just been to The Complete Angler in Marlow for a couple of nights, and must say this is one our favourite MacDonald Hotels. The welcome is warm and friendly, rooms are superb, love the towels sheer sheer luxury. Food expectionl, though a little expensive. Would definitely recommend, and Marlow is a lovely town.

Very good reception even though I arrive quite late. Excellent dinner and what a view from the Riverside Restaurant. Comfortable bed in a delightful room. Perfect stay. Friendly staff. Value for money reasonable given its location and reputation.
