Firstly I feel a bit guilty about giving this a one star, but it is only because of one incident that soured my otherwise brilliant stay. I booked a spa weekend for my fiancée for her birthday in mid August as she loves spa weekends. I read the reviews for The Grove and thought I have to try it. Anyway... More

Did not stay at the hotel, but ate with friends in the glasshouse restaurant to sample the Carvery. Not like any other Carvery that that we have tried. Very extensive range of food choices on an all you can eat basis. Good restaurant service. Bar service was a little tardy and another party that arrived after is was served first!

This was our second visit to The Grove. The rooms in the newer section of the hotel are pretty standard. The rooms in the original manor house are unique, but some do have challenges. There are so many great activities to enjoy at the Grove, it is not surprising that it is a great family venue. The golf course is... More

I brought my mum for her birthday on 24.08.15, it was lovely. The grounds are beautiful and the service is definitely 5 star. The afternoon tea experience is superb, Tommy our waiter was great, helpful, friendly and welcoming. You get a lot of food and unlimited drinks for £35 each. We had a fantastic time, I highly recommend the experience.

Glass house buffet. We had high expectations as we have eaten here in the past and it was good. Sadly the choice was not as good as it used to be. Carvery reminded me of a poshed up Toby! Same choices same sort of layout. Staff were not very observant. We waited ages for them to take our second drink... More

What a fantastic meal and first class service at The Glasshouse for my wifes birthday meal, such a wonderful variety of food that was delightfully presented. The food itselt tasted divine; can’t wait for another visit.

Went for this bank holiday weekend to the grove hotel. I am used to stay at some leading hotel of the world. The grove clearly should not have been granted this label. Below my remarks: - restaurant last order is at 21h30! I was flying from NEw York the day I arrived and was checking late. On my way to... More

From the moment we arrived and met by Gabriel and his team who where so warm and welcoming i knew it was going to be a positive experience. Check in was smooth but one of the rooms was not quite ready at 17.30. First night we had dinner at the stables food quality was very high and the service very... More

Unfortunately this hotel misses the mark for a five star luxury get-away. The grounds are beautiful and the outdoor pool is great. However, the service is patchy and even the top grade rooms are far from luxurious (think 1960's motel). They also fail on the family front. Babysitting services are a staggering £22.50 per hour (min. 3 hours) and the... More
