Just stayed for the first time at the weekend for a wedding anniversary. Hotel enjoys a beautiful location overlooking the river and so convenient for walking into Marlow. Hotel service excellent including accommodating a request to send a bottle of bubbles to the room after check-in - all done very discreetly so that it remained a lovely surprise. Breakfast well...

Service was excellent, everyone greeted us. Lovely large comfortable room overlooking the river. As usual, only ever get 2-3 coffee pods/milks. Walk across the bridge into high street, couple of nice shops and pubs. It was our wedding anniversary so had a really good meal in Sindhu. There was a couple of excellent items on the tasting menu and a... More

I felt for the price the service and overall expereince should have been better. The staff were struggling with service in the bar and had to be prompted to bring us nuts & olives with our cockatils and at breakfast time service was on the slow side even though the restuarant was not full. I was charged for a sunday... More

The main attraction of this hotel is it's location right next to Marlow Bridge and that it overlooks the Thames - very picturesque (particularly in summer). My room was a good size for an English country house style hotel, with a small balcony (something to bear in mind if you have young children). Based on experience, these hotels vary enormously...

The service was second to none. Vey warm, friendly and knowledgeable. We were given a complimentary room upgrade. The room overlooked the river and had everything you needed. The location is amazing right on the River Thames and a very shot walk into the pretty town of Marlow. Good parking facilities. Do not miss the opportunity to eat in the... More

Thank you for your visit to the hotel. I am so pleased to read how you enjoyed your stay and particularly how you describe the food in the Riverside Restaurant which Chef and his team is working hard to deliver. A river facing room is always worth the supplement (in my personal opinion), however, it appears that we were in... More

Six of us plus a 14 month old child had a wonderful lunch. The staff could not have been more charming, seemingly unfazed by the amount of food under the highchair, and attentive without smothering. The food was simple in an Indian Fusion sort of way and simply delicious. The portions did not make you look for the way out,... More

We stayed in a first floor feature room with a balcomy overlooking the weir - definitely worth the extra money for a nice view and bigger room. Staff were all great (except for the breakfast staff as has been mentioned numerous times before), and overall we really enjoyed our stay - we ate in Sindhu for dinner which was fantastic,... More

Thank you for your glowing feedback following your stay with us recently. The Feature Rooms are as you describe, larger and with a private balcony overlooking the weir. The doubles have king sized beds too, large TVs, a DVD player, separate showers and two sinks in every bathroom. I am sorry that the breakfast was found not to be as... More
