First stay, and impressively clean and careing approach for guests. It is obvious the hotel is run for the benefit of guests, not the profits of owners or shareholders! With a nurse on duty, and electric buggys to hire it is great for those with special requirements.

Had a lovely stay for two nights in the Grove, the hotel is so well maintained and spotlessly clean. Brendan and all his staff, reception, housekeeping and waiting staff are all equally friendly and efficient and nothing is too much trouble. The food, both breakfast and dinner are top quality, very high standard and it would seem all freshly cooked.... More

We had a great weekend. Brendan and his staff went out of their way to make sure everything was ok for us. The chefs were very helpful with my requirements for pureed food, my wife really enjoyed the food and we had a great cream tea with visiting family members. We will be back soon.' The Goslings'

Everything about this Hotel was as good as if not better than I wished for. I would like to mention certain staff members who stood out from the others, but in this instance I can’t.
