Visited the Indian restaurant at the Compleat Angler on a beautiful Saturday evening in June. On arrival there were people having drinks on the lawn and terrace. When we tried to join those on the lawn, we were told that bar was closing, so went inside to access the terrace balcony. This was via the English restaurant and we were... More

We stayed for 1 night having passed through Marlow several times previously and thought what a great location for a hotel. The room was ok. A bit tired eg bath taps were leaking which we reported but they didn't/maybe couldn't fix. We ate in the restaurant and had two very nice steaks. However, we did have to wait 10 minutes... More

We stayed overnight for a family wedding and were very comfortable, but we could have done with brighter lights in the bedroom to read by. The hotel made every effort, very successfully, to make the wedding a time to remember.

Booked a celebration lunch and couldn't have been more disappointed! Menu was uninspiring and overpriced. We waited over an hour for our main courses despite only two other tables occupied. Food was badly cooked and unappetising especially the duck. Sadly one of our group was extremely ill in the evening after the lunch.... We cannot recommend the restaurant and will... More

Good deal at a good hotel. Slightly let down by staff not keeping us informed with regard to a non-working TV. We were offered a change to a suite when we returned from the restaurant but a bit late in the day at 11 in the evening !

Great food (and given proximity to London, quite pricey) and excellent service. The accommodation lets it down, being creaky and a little down-at-heel. However, we enjoyed our stay, the wedding went off very well. and breakfast was superb and thankfully included in the price of the room for the night.

The Hotel is in a fabulous setting and has a wonderful history. We stayed as a wedding guest and paid £180 for a standard double room, this apparently was slightly discounted as part of the wedding package. The service and food was excellent. The room was nice but I do not expect to see a cracked toilet and peeling paint... More

All aspects of service and ability to meet our needs were not great. Breakfast service. Lack of dining for guests. Bedroom small dark and grubby. No lift and many stairs. Poor all round experience not to be repeated

Thank you for taking the time to share your review of the Compleat Angler. I am disappointed to read that you left feeling as though your experience at The Compleat Angler had not been as you wished. Our rooms do vary in size, our feature rooms being most spacious, with wonderful views overlooking the weir. The Compleat Angler which dates... More
