This is a really smart hotel, but the staff were friendly and helpful. Its old, and that is obvious and, I think, part of its charm, no straight corridors or flights of stairs but the decor is beautiful and the room, overlooking the weir was comfortable, clean and beautifully decorated.
The location is, of course, its main appeal. You can go to sleep to the roar of the weir which, even through secondary double glazing, is loud. If you need silence to sleep then you don't want a river view.
We were lucky with the weather so were able to sit outside in the evening by the river which was charming.
The real down side of this hotel is the pricing. We ate in the bar in the evening, and it was VERY expensive for what it was, basically bangers and mash! I know its a smart hotel but I do think the charges for food and drink were a little unnecessary. Luckily Marlow town is a short walk away with lots of nice restaurants, coffee shops and cafes and a supermarket if you want to get yourself a bottle of wine without the exorbitant price tag.
