Booked the room for £150. Would have liked to stay an additional night however the price was then £300 for an additional for the same room!! Room was lovely for £150 but absolutely not worth £300. Sindhu restaurant was lovely - a real bonus.

We stayed for one night ,in the feature four poster room, it was beautiful and views over the weir were amazing. We didn't eat at the hotel as we had reservations elsewhere, so cant comment on the food.

I recently stayed at The Compleat Angler and, although the location is wonderful (right on the Thames River next to the Marlow Bridge) I found the hotel to be a bit pricey for what you actually receive. Also, I noticed that some of the help seemed to be either new or lacking training on service. For example, departing the hotel,... More

Stayed at the Compleat Angler with a big group for a business meeting. The hotel is typically British and is well located in front of the river and a walk away from Marlow's main street. Rooms are small but comfortable; reception staff could be more welcoming and better organised.

Very good food but pricey. Cocktail just average for the cost. Nice room tho a little noisy and bath wouldn't drain as full of hair and other nasties. Reported fault but not attended to. Not pleasant!

We ate in the Sidhu Restaurant at the Compleat Angler for a special occasion. It is an Indian restaurant but not of the ordinary! It is quite expensive but wonderful for a special occasion! We had the taster menu which was excellent and each course was explained to us. At the end the chef came out to chat to us... More

We stayed at this hotel for our anniversary. The service was excellent and the room beautiful, looking over the river. The hotel remembered it was our anniversary and had left a box of chocolates and card for us. We didn't eat at the hotel as we had organised a restaurant locally, however breakfast in the morning was lovely. Lots of... More

We stayed here as we were eating at the hand and flowers for our first wedding anniversary. The hotel is in a beautiful spot on the river, and if you can afford the bar prices then I'm sure it would be a lovely experience! We decided we didn't want to get ripped off there and went for an early drink... More
