A romantic stay at a Thames riverside hotel with three AA Rosette-awarded restaurants and historic bar – includes breakfast, a bottle of wine and an optional dinner offer

The romantic Macdonald Compleat Angler sits in a tranquil spot on the river's edge, throwing its lights across the water. Less than an hour outside of London, this plush hotel overlooks the Thames in Marlow, Buckinghamshire – perfect for country rambles, fishing trips and jaunty days out in nearby Windsor, Eton or Henley. When it comes to dining, choose between gourmet British dishes with stunning river views at the two AA Rosette-awarded Riverside Restaurant.

Yo can also drink cocktails in the bar or sip champagne in the cosy and quaint lounge - once a favourite haunt of T.S. Eliot and F. Scott Fitzgerald. You can't get much more glamorous than that. Expect a cosy atmosphere teeming with old world elegance in this 400 year-old oak-panelled watering hole.
