Third time here, and I always find this place a little bland. It's certainly a good hotel, probably just about worth its 4 star AA rating, but it doesn't stand out as particularly special in the way that I would expect a member of the CP range to stand out. The bar and restaurant are good but pricy, and yes there is an excellent fitness center and pool with spa. But overall this hotel seems to lack atmosphere, and appears a little too sterile.
I have to say, the room was excellently appointed with bathroom offering seperate shower and bath. Very comfortable bed and a good standard of housekeeping and cleanliness throughout.
The hotel is some way out of Marlow, so if you're going into town you will be driving or taking a taxi - no shuttle bus in sight, which would probably be a good touch.
Only wired internet in room, which was a problem for me with the iPad, and that is very expensive. The hotel makes a big deal about offerring free internet up to 30 minutes, but as most business travellers would agree I'm sure, you don't get much done in 30 minutes.
