I am so glad I was not paying for this one night stop at the Compleat Angler. Except for the breakfast I could not find a single good thing to say. Check-in was smooth - but when I got to my room....the paintwork was tatty, toilet either not clean or very stained, bath had water in it from the leaking... More

Lovely stay - they knew it was my partners birthday and gave us a Thames facing room. Reception staff were lovely, Room was very nice and views amazing. If I am being picky the bathroom looked a bit tired but it was clean and had Molton Brown toiletries. Breakfast was plentiful and of good quality and breakfast room is lovely... More

The Compleat Angler is a beautiful hotel in an unbeatable location. We enjoyed every aspect of a wonderful stay, where we and our German Shepherd, Bobby, received a warm welcome from every member of the professional, friendly and helpful staff that we met during our stay. We enjoyed delicious meals in both the main restaurant and the Indian restaurant, Sindhu.... More

We were overcharged on wine we ordered and had money added to our bill that was nothing to do with us. We then had a problem getting these charges removed and corrected. The staff were indifferent to helping and the manager was not available and has still not returned my calls. The toilet in the room was cracked and the... More

We stayed two nights at The Compleat Angler to celebrate my husbands 70th birthday. There were 11 of us in our party and everything was perfect. The hotel was in a great location, the rooms were exceptional and the staff made us so welcome that our family celebration was really, memorable in every way!!! Perfect!

We have just returned from a winter week end at this hotel feeling completely refreshed! Despite the cold wet weather, we had a warm welcome at the hotel from the lovely log fire in the lounge area. Our room was clean and bright, in a quiet part of the hotel overlooking the river. We enjoyed exploring the town of Marlow... More

Booked on a 50% offer which made 2 nights room only, standard double, affordable. We were allocated a room over the entrance, looking out on the car park, which we did not like and the reception staff were very good in finding a much better room overlooking the weir. We did not take breakfast at £15 each as we only... More

The location is great and our room was spacious, clean & comfortable. We stayed on a B&B basis - the hot breakfast is cooked to order (good), but it was served on cold plates (own goal). The dinner menu is impressive (high end), but portion sizes are disappointing and our white wine was not served at the correct temperature. This... More
