On looking at reviews from other visitors we picked this hotel for our stay in Knaresborough. Unfortunately the hotel is in the process of changing ownership. When we turned up at the Grove we were shown straight to our rooms. The rooms had just been upgraded and were exceptional large comfortable bed plenty of pillars tea and coffee with luxury... More

We stayed overnight this week in Room 1...lovely room, comfy bed and the bedding and towels were very clean. The bathroom was very modern and clean. The only disappointment was that we were informed on arrival that the chef was ill so there would be no breakfasts served...had seen the reviews and was looking forward to a full English. £10...

Visited with my partner spring bank holiday. It was the only place around that let us stay for one night as all others want two nights? Very central right next to the market. 24 hour parking 500 yards away for £1.70 bargain. Nice little pub with very friendly staff and adequately breakfast. En-suite rooms recently modernised and clean and cosy.... More

although the bar was a little run down the rooms themselves were of a high standard.(Shame about the stairs as we live in a bungalow and are not used to so many.) The beds were really comfortable, and everything was very clean. Knaresborough is a very nice place to visit and if you have time see the castle and the... More

Although the pub itself doesn't look much, the rooms are great. The bedding and towels are clean, the room is warm and tidy, tea and coffee making facilities and best of all... a BATH! So tired of booking hotel rooms now and they have showers only to save space. There was a hairdryer in the room and an ironing board... More

A warm welcome and a very comfortable bed were a great surprise on a cold and windy night in February. Real Ale at the bar and a hearty breakfast all added up to a very enjoyable stay. The only criticism was the three flights of stairs up to our room. Not for the terminally 'unfit' like me... Otherwise - all... More

My wife and I recently had cause to spend three nights in Knaresborough, Yorkshire. We consulted TripAdvisor and settled on booking a double room at The Groves and were certainly not disappointed. The seemingly ubiquitous couple who run hotel are very friendly and very hospitable whilst professional and courteous. The bar was an absolute joy and the clearly regular patrons... More
