      The Compleat Angler in Marlow recently hosted our BBO PA Network event and we were blown away! The service and attention to detail from the staff and the General Manager, Gavin Webster was amazing and began from the moment we stepped foot onto the property. Gavin's enthusiasm is infectious and he is an absolute asset to the hotel. The staff were extremely professional and polite, with nothing being too much bother. The Compleat Angler is a stunning property but it is the staff and general manager which make it exceptional. A huge thank you to everyone who helped make our event spectacular.

      The venue is in a beautiful setting on the river. The property is very smart and well maintained. The staff are friendly, attentive and professional. The catering is superb. Kelly Whitehouse and Gavin are great hosts. I also viewed the meeting space whilst present and can confirm the meeting rooms are of a high standard and have everything you would require/expect to run a meeting.

      I just wanted to write and express our heartfelt thanks for the amazing first class service we received during our stay at The Compleat Angler.

      As the coordinator I received feedback from everyone of our 31 staff members saying how much they enjoyed their stay at the hotel and while this was partly due to the beautiful scenery and location, I was told that the experience was complimented by all of your staff members, nothing was too much trouble and they really went over and above to cater for our individual needs.

      Our days were full of intense meetings and training sessions, these long days were made easier by the continued and attentive assistance received by Andrei Gradinaru and Hamza Raibi helping to coordinate and accommodate our requirements, sincere thanks to both.

      Extended thanks also goes to the amazing ladies on reception and concierge who helped to look after the logistics for our staff. Not to mention staff in the restaurant who provided a first class Christmas Party, many thanks we had so much fun.

      Lastly, a huge thank you to Gavin and Chloe for helping make our stay a fabulous experience and total success amongst staff.

      Whilst the Compleat Angler is a beautiful hotel in an amazing location, it's nothing without the staff who help to make it a home from home.

      Do you have any good advice/tips for other bookers/organiser?

      Liaise directly with the Special Events team as they can advise on every aspect of your stay and ensure it is a success. From my own personal experience, nothing is too much trouble.

      All staff at Compleat Angler were amazing from reception to restaurant.
      Combined with our amazing Account Manager Kelly Whitehouse, who is an asset to MacDonald Hotels and probable doesnt get the recognition she deserves not been in house at the hotel.
      Would like to come back for a dinner in the New Year

      I have used this venue for both conference/meeting space and as an overnight guest several times - so much so that the porter/concierge recognises me and it's great to be welcomed with a cheery smile! The service and attention to detail at this venue is second to none. This is very much influenced by The General Manager Gavin who ensures a memorable experience for each guest and who inspires his staff to feel proud to be part of a team at this stunning venue. Kelly Whitehouse is also a fantastic advocate of the hotel. This is one of my firm favourites!

      Bedrooms overlooking the weir, church and bridge have the "wow" factor for your clients/guests.
