Macdonald Compleat Angler, which overlooks the River Thames in Marlow, is investing a substantial amount in a refurbishment programme, which will see the hotel enter a new chapter in its long history.

Scheduled for completion by mid-late March, the interior public areas are being transformed into a stylish blend of contemporary design whilst maintaining the original features of the hotel. The centrepiece of the investment is in the opening of a new river-facing restaurant with stunning views of Marlow weir and the Thames, as well as a redesigned cocktail bar and reception area.

The first phase, which included a significant upgrade to the hotel's two executive boardrooms, is now complete and have re-opened with the installation of a new, state-of-the-art interactive SMARTboard in the Balmoral meeting room, which also has a private outdoor decked area.  

Commenting on the refurbishment Gaius Wyncoll, General Manager at Macdonald Compleat Angler said; "As a group, we continually aim to enhance our product and services to meet the ever-changing needs of our guests and this exciting redevelopment will ensure we continue to do this.  It also represents another significant milestone in our history. We are now working closely with the interior designers to ensure the furnishings complement the style and elegance of the hotel and its idyllic riverside location."

Rated one of the top hotels in England with four coveted AA red stars, Macdonald Compleat Angler is also part of The Macdonald Hotels' Signature Collection.

Dating back to the 17th century, the hotel takes its name from Isaak Walton's world-famous book on angling. Most of the 64 rooms and suites have lovely river views while others are within sight and sound of cascading water over Marlow Weir.

Conveniently close to the M4 and M40, Macdonald Compleat Angler is perfectly placed, close to Windsor and Henley for executive board meetings and walking by the river.  The hotel was also part of a £1million group-wide investment by Macdonald Hotels to offer free, unlimited WiFi powered by The Cloud.
