I have been to Compleat Angler once some years ago and was very impressed. Not so this time I am afraid. Hotel is fabulously situated and I have no issues with the accommodation. To celebrate our arrival ordered two Pimms at the bar. I thought the male barman was fairly hostile, who sharply said find a seat and we will... More

Lovely view from our room and staff eager to please. Surprisingly slow breakfast service as we were only the second couple down. Overall a very pleasant stay in lovely surroundings. I only mention that we received someone else's newspaper (we didn't order one) as I am repeatedly asked to submit more words!

This hotel is average at the most although the restaurant staff were lovely, especially at breakfast. Booking-in we duly handed over the requested credit card and were shocked to find a charge for this on the final bill - very underhand. No one had mentioned this. Also a charity donation. We like to choose who we donate to and object... More

Sons wedding at this hotel was successful only because on the day all the organisation was done by family members. The Events Manager left the hotel a week before the big day and there was no hand over of the details previously arranged for the wedding. The ceremony went well but there was no one to organise the Bride, the... More

I attended here for a business Buffet an amazing place so amazing that I would not like to spoil it's image by running it down too much. I arrived there early on a very hot day and waited ages to get a drink sitting in one of the most beautiful spots in England surrounded by people who were eating and... More

A delightful riverside setting for drinks once again spoilt by dilatory servers. Long waits for service on the last three occasions, blind waiters ignoring clients and rather than resolve an issue themselves pass the buck to 'the bar staff'. The bill has been cancelled on the last two occasions. The male toilets had not been checked for 3 hours and... More

We enjoyed an excellent stay using Secret Escapes Dinner, B& B package. Food really good in the restaurant, great choice, and superb atmosphere. Enjoyed an excellent breakfast. Service in hotel faultless, on the terrace it isn't. We finished our tea before the scones had arrived. Had to wait quite a while to get a drinks menu. Perhaps the outside staff... More

We stayed here whilst visiting The Hand and Flowers and what a stunning setting it was. The Room we had was a executive double with double aspect windows. The views from the terrace bar and restaurant for breakfast are fantastic. The breakfast was freshly cooked to order which I prefer as then you don't over fill your plate. There was... More
