Having visited friends in Marlow we decided to pop in to the hotel where we spent part of our honeymoon in 1976 to revisit we wanted to sit on the terrace and told that they were only serving in the garden having spoken to the barman we were told that the terrace is closed at the weekend as it only...

Staff lack professional approach particularly at check in check out reception area. Had a need for a lower floor and front desk manager never got back to me. Had to follow up and two of the staff were whispering among each other and sarcastically proposed a room half of the size we booked!!!

Great experience marred, over the hottest time of the year, by a broken shower temperature control, resulting in scalding water. Duly reported but to no avail. At £300 per night one expects a quick response.

We only stayed one night, whilst visiting Henley Regatta. The food was excellent, and the room was very comfortable, with air conditioning. The staff were friendly and extremely helpful, despite being a very busy time of the year for them. We were not rushed at all, and would love to think we would return for another stay in the future.

I say mostly good because the overall experience was very good, let down only by the slow service and poor attitude of the barman ! Waiting 20 minutes for 4 drinks prior to our booked table is in my view unacceptable. However the Maitre d' and waiting staff were very professional. Checking in and checking out was superb.

Hotel was first class, very English in character and the room was elegant and stylish. Food was fabulous and staff very helpful. We would definitely stay here again. Well worth the money for a special occasion.

Perfectly located hotel, old but in excellent shape, just by the water, with large parc and few nice restaurants on the premises for a short break just one hour off downtown London. If weather is nice, there are several places to enjoy the view of old Marlow with a refreshing drink by the river; if not, very nice bar inside... More

We booked here as a base for a wedding and although it was pricy - it looked like a great place - right on the river by the main bridge in Marlow. Firstly - the room we were given was the smallest room we'd stayed in for a while - when you are travelling abroad with 3 huge suitcases and... More

We booked the overnight stay so it would make life easier for us after driving a long way for a very special wedding. We appreciated the hotel's advance call to offer us a breakfast deal, which was done efficiently without being too pushy: very helpful. I had primed the hotel about a possible early arrival and they couldn't have been... More

I can't really say it exceeded expectations, nor did it under achieve. A group of us stayed here following a night out in Marlow. One thing I can never work out, and please give me an answer if you can is why a premium on alcohol? 200 yards up the road is significantly cheaper, my only guess is because you... More
