Named after Izaak Walton's famous book on angling, the beautiful four-red star Macdonald Compleat Angler is idyllically located on the banks of the River Thames. The hotel is just a short walk from the Georgian town of Marlow, 10 minutes drive from the M4 and just over an hour away from Central London by train. Beautiful both inside and out, enjoy mouthwatering meals from the recently refurbished, three AA rosette-awarded Riverside Restaurant overlooking Marlow Weir or delicious afternoon tea on the terrace. Alternatively, dine in Sindhu by Michelin-starred Indian Chef, Atul Kochhar. For meetings, strategy days or conferences, our meeting facilities are ideal and our 2 brand new SMART board technology board rooms perfect for inspiring great ideas.

Lovely welcome when we arrived for our 2.30pm booking, and shown immediately to the lounge where we had the choice of tables.
Presented with the menu and told to take our time selecting our teas.
English breakfast was a lovely loose leaf brew.

We got married at the Compleat Angler and I’m so pleased we chose this hotel over some others. We mainly chose it because of the location and scenery – I had seen some other couples’ wedding photos and thought how beautiful the scenery looked.

It was the perfect size for the

Firstly many congratulations again on your recent marriage. It was pleasure to read your review and how Brahim, Cristina and the Chef made your day so memorable. I believe, I have a fantastic team at the hotel that can deliver such occasions as you both experienced. I shall ensure I pass on your comments to the team and those individuals mentioned are recognised for their hard work. I very much look forward to welcoming you back in the new year so we can all share those special memories again over a glass of fizz. Kind regards Gavin

I went to this hotel/ restaurant to purchase a £100 gift voucher for the restaurant for a Christmas present (this hotel is the place where the couple got married).
I went to reception and was turned away quite rudely as they had no time to serve me, due to a 20person group showi

Thank you for your feedback and review. I am extremely disappointed to read that we did not take care of your request in a manner that you would expect from us. Yes, the reception at times can be very busy, however we have procedures in place that the team should follow when such requests come in, especially when we are unable to deal with them straight away. Following on from your review, I have personally spoken to the individual concerned and she wishes to be associated with this apology too. I do hope you understand that this was an isolated incident and my reception team will ensure it never happens again. Kind regards Gavin

I have just had afternoon tea at the complete angler with a group of people.
The setting of the hotel is stunning and with all the beautiful Christmas decorations up it looks like something from a fairytale.
The food was everything you would expect from a five star hotel very go

Does his hotel offer a free fitness room? I could only find the brand offering a gym membership.
No gym or pool.

What doesn’t the corporate Excutive’s of this hotel group understand about the ratings his hotel is receiving. The theme and the complaints are all the same. The bar and waiting staff are totally out of control, they are just too set in their ways. The kitchen /food staff deliver quality that is hit or miss. Far too often miss. If the local management thinks these people can be retained he / she is delusional. If the manger is accurately conveying customer performance comments to staff - it’s just not working!! I sincerely hope that someone with restructuring skills and people skills can save this lovely old hotel!

Great comments coroona. Looking at reviews it does seem as tho you are spot on. My personal experience were both good however. There seems to be a lot of Eastern European staff on board and looks like that’s the way this establishment has chosen to go I am not sure if this is the reason

What is the price for an afternoon tea ?
Hi there, unsure as we didn't eat anything at all there - my daughter is vegan and they could not even conjure up a side of chips, we went out. Can recommend Bill's restaurant.
