Despite the excellent location and attentive staff, we wouldn't recommend staying here for the price. We chose this hotel for our wedding night, and paid for an extra nice room - it was ok (very comfortable bed!) but the decor had seen better days, the sink was cracked and they only gave us one dressing gown between two.

Never stayed before but will now. Grear hotel, very attentive service and a beautiful location. Parking on site which is great. I enjoyed tea on the terrace next to the Thames then dinner in the resturant. (there is a very smart Indian resturant which I will eat at next time if I can get in).

Besides the view of the car park the hotel was very enjoyable with attentive staff and spotlessly clean rooms also the hotel is in a fantastic position with only a one minute walk into the centre. Would certainly stay here again when we have saved up enough.

We spent a relaxing 2 days at the Compleat Angler. Lovely views of the weir from the spacious bedroom, attentive service and a fantastic meal at Sindhu. We will be back again on our next visit to The Hand and Flowers and to eat agin at Sindhu.

On arrival, we were told that in fact, we had NOT booked into Atul Kochhar's restaurant, as suggested by the information on Secret Escapes, but the restaurant belonging to The Compleat Angler itself. After checking in, we decided to have a drink by the river in the hotel bar as it was such a beautiful day. No, this was not... More

Avoid if there is a wedding on. Our 'Executive' room was just over the dance floor and reverberated like a bass drum until after midnight. So much for our relaxing break. Room very warm and no air conditioning.

Cozy hotel, needs some décor update soon. Service is good, dinner in the Riverside Restaurant was excellent, it should really have a Michelin star. £3 fee to pay by CC a little insulting when spending £600+ a day.
