We have just returned from a weekend break for our first visit to the Grove. The location , staff ,cleanliness , facilities and food were just perfect. With the good weather as a bonus we could not have asked for more . I fully recomend The Grove and look forward to visiting again.

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
