We had a wonderful time celebrating our 3rd wedding anniversary at the Grenville Hotel and Restaurant in Bay Head, New Jersey. From the initial phone call for reservations until the time we checked out we felt like we were right at home! The hospitality, food, service and quality were nothing less than a ROYAL👑.

Very nice and helpful staff, clean, quiet, and relaxed atmosphere. Close to nice beach. Mattress and futon extra bed a bit on the saggy side, though. Good for a few days at the beach because it's easy to walk back and forth between hotel and beach. Beach chairs provided.

One of the owners, Harry, went far beyond my expectations to ensure a great stay when the reservation was phished from the internet not by any fault of his or his staff. The hotel is a grand dame, beautifully restored. The room was large, comfortable, and spotless. The dining room was huge, complete with a fireplace and arched stained glass... More

Bravo to Renee and her Staff for permitting us to share the warm hospitality of The Grenville for the Baby Shower we held today for our Mommy-to-Be. From start to finish, everyone at The Grenville was gracious and attentive. Many, many thanks!

This is our 3rd time staying at the Grenville. A block from the beach. They give you beach badges. Kids love it. Very Quiet. It is a historic hotel and thus a trip back in time. It has always been clean and tidy. If you are looking for the Ritz, this is not for you. Similar to rooms at Mohonk... More

My boyfriend and i had an amazing Brunch last Sunday. The food was amazing and the waiters were very nice and friendly. The place is only few blocks away from the beach, and the area is very quite. We will definitely come back!

We also stayed at the Grenville through a Living Social deal. The location is great in terms of proximity to the beach. However, everything else about this stay was mediocre - thin walls, uncomfortable mattress, average food and a continental breakfast that we skipped. It could be a really good property but this place still needs a serious renovation.

The Living Social Deal continues to be an enormous success as do our in house promotions. Half price packages that can not be beat give our future guests a chance to experience our hotel and award winning restaurant menus without spending full rate during the off season. The Grenville is 125 years old, renovated and redecorated continually to keep up... More
