“Excellent Stay!”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

Stayed at the Swiss Cottage for the commute to the park & ride for the Olympic Rowing at Eton Dorney. Loved everything about this homely accomodation. The room was clean, tidy, light and airey, the ensuite spotless with toiletries and bathrobes (which we didn't discover until last day). on arrival we were met by the hosts John & Judy who were a fountain of knowledge of the local area. The restaurant review excellent touch ( don't forget to add La Cantina del Vino) which was excellent. Only had the breakfast on the last day of our stay as we had to be up too early the other 2 days for the Rowing, but Judy very kindly gave us cereal the night before to help us on our way, but the breakfast on the last day was worth waiting for (prepared by Judy) didn't need to eat again until teatime. Overall a very enjoyable stay, thanks guys.

John and Judy have got the balance just right between being friendly and being intrusive. The welcome is very genuine.
Both rooms are spotlessly clean with modern en suite shower/bathrooms attached. Nice touches are complimentary snacks and tea and coffee and free wifi.
The breakfast is excellent and cooked to order so very fresh.
The only downside (for some but not for me) could be the location as a car is needed to get into Marlow for the evening but it's a short taxi ride.
All this and comfortable beds too - you'll lack for nothing.

Room Tip: Room 1 has a shower but overlooks the garden. If you want a bath ask for room 2.

A true B&B experience with a personal touch. If you want a something commercial or an hotel like experience this is not for you.
The location is not within walking distance of the high street so keep this mind, on the other hand it is quiet and wawy for the hustle and bustle of the town.
Great service and enjoyed the stay.

Stayed at Swiss Cottage for a couple of nights earlier in the month. We received a warm welcome from John and he and Judy were excellent hosts. Whilst our room was not large it was perfectly adequate, spotlessly clean with good power shower, complimentary toiletries and a good selections of teas/coffees and snacks plus fresh milk! John's breakfasts were good with lovely fresh home made bread. Lots of helpful literature in the room including extensive review of eating and drinking establishments in the area, of which there is no shortage of in Marlow!
Would definitely stay again if we were visiting the area.

Just returned from a wonderful anniversary weekend in Marlow and stayed at the Swiss Cottage. John and Judy who run it are very friendly, warm and welcoming with an extensive knowledge of the town and surrounding area. The room was absolutey spotless and John does a first class full english breakfast to start your day off. The room was immaculate, as was the bathroom with a wonderful power shower, there are 2 bath robes in the wardrobe and it is these little touches that make you want to go back and stay there again.

Highly recommended if you want somewhere relaxing and quiet to stay and with someone who knows the area and is all to willing to help you get the most out of your stay.

Recently we stayed at Swiss Cottage for 2 nights. John and Judy were both so welcoming and we felt very comfortable during our stay. The room was absolutely spotless and breakfast was delicious, especially Judy's homemade plum jam. The B&B is located in a quiet residential area so you can be sure of a good night's sleep. We were planning to wake up early to watch the Rugby World Cup in our room but ITV1 didn't work, which was a shame. But at least it meant we could sleep in! All in all, we'd really recommend this little place for a relaxing weekend away.
