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

Stayed on 17th January for 1 night. Lovely, cosy little pub/hotel - a bit run down looking from the outside when you first arrive but as the owner explained to us when we were leaving they are due to have refurbishment work carried out in the next few weeks. Apart from that what a great place to stay for a... More

Me and a friend were driving around the UK with no set plans to stay anywhere, when I came across the town of Knarnesborough on trip advisor as a half way point to stay between oxford and Edinburgh. The Grove was the first place we checked for rooms and Tracey ( the bar keeper ) was just so warm and... More

Stayed new yrs eve, were told no entertainment in the pub that night but could try local pubs. Staff friendly however they were hung over serving breakfast which isn't the best impression too give. Had a problem with tv which staff dealt with it straight away. Plans to up grade the pub this year which look great.
