We dined at the Riverside Restaurant for a Sunday lunch. Such a same they have no pride in a roast dinner. The roast potatoes were empty as they had been warmed for so long which was amazing as they were barely warm. The other vegetables were cold, and this was after sending the first attempt back. Such a shame. Sure... More

staff need training in customer service, Not a smile was seen. This is a 4* Hotel, not a bar/restaurant. Prices for a glass of wine varied from customer to customer, one expects to pay over the odds for drinks at Wedding Receptions, £2.00-£3.00 for soft drinks !!! Spirits were very weak ??? , no bar prices written up, perhaps that's... More

Nice hotel, nice setting. As a 4 star hotel one might expect to pay a little more at the bar but not the rip off prices they are charging. Also on more than one occasion they tried to charge a different price for the same drink .No draught beer stocked meaning you had to purchase expensive bottled beer. Be aware... More

Great rooms ,comfy beds, great service by very polite staff. Evening meal was excellent as was breakfast. Excellent location next to the river and across the river from Marlow. Only critiscism was checking in and out was a bit slow but that would be very picky. Overall a great place to stay.

We booked this hotel through a deal with Secret Escapes as we like the town of Marlow - wonderful shops! We paid extra for an 'Executive Room' but were quite disappointed. The room was tired, brown and nothing special at all, but I suppose we did have a sort of distant view of the river instead of overlooking the car... More

Lovely stay in Marlow for our Pearl Wedding Anniversary. Very comfortable. Food was delicious (super token dessert with Happy Anniversary written) and whole place very understated and calm. Weather was horrid for a bank holiday but very relaxing inside. Great view of the river and weir from our room. Breakfast in our room (93) was lovely with a free bottle... More

Had an executive four poster room and the bed was so uncomfortable that I barely slept. The shower was also very old, and not at all powerful. Disappointing given the price of the room. Sindhu restaurant was excellent though.

I didn't stay at the Compleat Angler (though I have in the past) during this trip. We were able to enjoy a Pimm's on the lawn on a beautiful sunny afternoon, overlooking the Thames, the wonderful Marlow suspension bridge and the picturesque church. A perfect setting to relax and take in the view. The service was delightful. The weather was... More

Andrew C, General Manager at Macdonald Compleat Angler, responded to this review

What lovely comments! If we could arrange for the sun to shine every day the lawn would certainly be a tough spot to beat! I'm glad you managed to enjoy the view whilst sipping on a Pimms, the perfect British setting! Hopefully you will find an excuse to stay on your next visit to Marlow.

I remember the Compleat Angler when it was an outstanding place with a top class restaurant. It started with a valet car park and finished with outstanding food and service. Today it's overpriced, impressively ordinary food with surly service. It's so sad to see this place on such a fabulous piece of real estate delivering such a downmarket product.
