My family and I stayed here for 3 nights, four days over the bank holiday. We loved it!! Nothing was too much trouble, the staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. The food exceptional and the decor and general housekeeping top drawer. This place is not cheap but you really do get what you pay for, all the non crowded... More

For the second time my wife and I took our two grandsons 8 and 11 for a 3 day stay at The Grove. Every member of staff is efficient with a smile on their face and a "can do" attitude. The boys had something to do all day whether it was swimming, tennis, cricket, football, table tennis, putting or pool.... More

The Grove is fantastic. We have stayed there several times as it offers so much for couples and families. It's located within acres of beautiful grounds and yet its approx 45 mins from Central London. The hotel is stunning especially the mansion house part. We stayed in no 46 and the suite is amazing with beautiful interiors and excellent room... More

Stayed here for 3 nights to attend a work conference. Their facilities were exceptional. The grounds were impeccable. The rooms were so well furnished and had everything you could possibly need. I really enjoyed it. Gym was very well equipped and I thoroughly enjoyed everything about this hotel and wished I had a chance to go to the spa!

I didn't stay at the grove, but visited to have breakfast with family who were guests. The staff were lovely, and the food was good, but best of all there was a falconry display going on in the grounds, which was so much fun. The falconer was really knowledgable and allowed my niece to hold one of the birds which... More

This hotel used to be a tranquil retreat amongst a plush countryside on the edge of Watford. Sunday lunch felt like a trip to McDonald's with so many tables crammed into the glass house restaurant there was little elbow room to manoeuvre the cutlery. Basically a glass of water, a miniature prawn cocktail and minimal portion of smoked fish to... More

Dear Jane L Sunday lunch is particularly popular in our Glasshouse restaurant, and I can only apologise if you found the ambience too noisy on this occasion. As you have mentioned, The Glasshouse is a buffet-style restaurant, with an abundance of choice, from seafood, tapas, salads, main dishes, a wok station, a selection of cheeses and an extensive range of...

I stated here for 2 nights during a corporate event hosted by Audi. The hotel was very nice and luxurious with very friendly and attentive staff. The atmosphere was buzzing and the facilities were top class. The room was very nice and clean with a great view and the bathroom was nice clean and bright. Highly recommend anyone to stay... More

This is the best hotel I have stayed at. Expensive yes, but if you are looking for something special your search ends here. Beautiful grounds, stereo typical country house setting, rooms fantastic and staff great. This hotel shouts quality without any hint of needing to ram it down your throat. Very relaxing, calm, place to be!

The Grove is great in so many ways. The restaurants are excellent, the hotel is stylish, and the rooms are comfortable. All of the outdoor activities on offer are inviting. A heated swimming pool and an artificial beach area make the Grove perfect for families. Anoushka's kids club offers lots of interesting activities to keep the kids occupied. The Spa... More

We enjoyed our short stay at the Grove. The Spa was pleasant and and sparsely populated which was lovely. The grounds were lovely for a post-dinner stroll. The room was very comfortable, and the staff made our staff enjoyable. The Grove does lose some marks for the breakfast offered, it was small.
