Fantastic Buckinghamshire venue for conferencing, private parties and corporate receptions on the banks of the Thames


The Macdonald Compleat Angler is not only an award winning hotel and popular venue choice for parties, it’s also a sophisticated and well facilitated conference venue on the banks of the River Thames.   Just a 40min drive out of London and with excellent transport networks nearby, this hotel offers contemporary and stylish events spaces overlooking the river and Marlow Weir, ranging in size to host anywhere from 14 to 180 people.  All the rooms have plenty of natural daylight, and many boast French doors leading out onto sun-kissed terraces – where al fresco wining & dining is encouraged in summer months.


Priding itself on its modern (and recently refurbished) facilities, there is a small but superior selection of AV equipment on offer at The Macdonald.  The smaller boardrooms offer LCD screens, while the larger events spaces have HD projector screens that can be moved around to suit your preferred room layout.


Due to good quality carpeting and heavy curtains, the acoustics are ideal for vocal amplification and the wireless sounds systems are very good quality indeed.  It seems no expense has been spared in the recent re-vamp of this charming and attractive venue, and even the chairs and tables have been carefully selected to improve comfort and add style.


An expansive lawn leads down right to the riverbank, and this hotel’s outdoor space gets booked years in advance by keen fans of the Henley Regatta looking for a prime spot from which to watch all the action.  On any other given day, it makes a fantastic area for a corporate drinks reception or summer party, and the hotel will create bespoke canapé menus, bowl food or even a sit down meal – the catering here is very flexible and of excellent quality, and while you can negotiate good value drinks packages here, you can also BYOB and fork out a very reasonable corkage fee.

While being ideal for business occasions and lavish private parties, The Macdonald also offers an alluring opportunity for couples.  For just £389, two people will receive accommodation on one of the hotels 4* bedrooms, and be given breakfast in the morning while overlooking the river.


Your evening will be a special one indeed, though, as this price also buys you an hour’s private boat trip on the Thames with canapés and champagne, and upon your return, you’ll even receive a fantastic dinner in the hotels renowned and celebrated restaurant before retiring to you room.


Function Fixers have booked countless events here at The Macdonald Compleat Angler, and we know the venue and staff inside out and back to front.  You can call us to book your next event here at a bargain price, and remember, our service is free, too – so you could save yourself an absolute bundle and nobody will ever guess you paid a modest fee for such an impressive venue…!
