The Crowne Plaza Marlow is a luxury hotel and conference destination set within five acres of parkland adjacent to a picturesque lake and the River Thames. Accommodation comprises 168 guest bedrooms, 8 meeting rooms, 450 capacity conference suite, and Health & Fitness spa facilities. A key design driver for the form & massing of the building is its visibility from Winter Hill, a nearby National Trust viewpoint which overlooks the Thames and the hotel. The building is limited to 3-storeys to maintain a low profile in the landscape and the guest bedroom wings have been aligned so that they are seen foreshortened from Winter Hill. These wings form two sides of a courtyard which is completed by the Reception, Function Suites, Restaurant & Bar. The upper floor, foyers and Function Suites have views both south towards Winter Hill and north overlooking the lake.
