It was lovely to be met and helped out of the taxi. When we entered the restaurant we sat in a beautiful lounge and had one of the best bloody marys ever although at £25 a shot I would expect nothing less. The decor in the restaurant was a disappointment. Not as spectacular as Luton hoo or as romantic as... More

The hotel is really dated and needs completely ripping out, but for £50 a night I found it convenient to get to and from the actual "Grove" hotel for a conference. They wanted about £200 for one night at the venue, hence my choice to stay elsewhere. Don't expect anything other than a bed, even the shared bathroom only had... More

My room was a double room, basic and not an on suite room but there was a shower, bath & toilet next door to... More

Stayed over 4 nights. All the staff were really nice and friendly. All the requests I asked before coming it have been done. Really close to town (10 min by walking) and to watford high street (tube)...so in 40 min you can get London....magic!

I travelled there on business - just for 1 noght & I WILL NEVER RETURN! The clue was there; when I arrived to find the place surrounded by a 6 foot wrought iron fence. I parked my car, entered reception and waited for 15 minutes only to be greated with"is that your Jag outside?" Replying yes - I was told... More

A very basic hotel and at £45 per night what do you expect. the room is decorated in wood chip and needs a serious overhaul. The heating was not on at first but did get to a comfortable level. Only issue was sleeping with my head next to the radiator. The shared bathroom was clean and I did not have... More

In Feb 2012 I visited the Grove with three girlfriends for an overnight spa break. We arrived early and were allowed to check into one of the two rooms booked which was nice but thats the only good thing I have to say about the hotel. We went to the pool, which was busy, to find that there was only... More

Stay well away from this place. Even after making complaints the Hotel have accused us of lying. Find somewhere else or book here at your peril
