My family and I stayed 4 nights at The Grove. The accommodation was fantastic. The owner Karen and manager Verity truly could not have done more to make us at home. Rooms are so comfy and the beds amazing! It's a perfect location. I cannot rave about the Grove enough!!

As part of our honeymoon we had decided to stay in Connel for a couple of nights. The Grove Guest House proved to be spotlessly clean, beautifully appointed and... More

We just loved it here!! Debbie is what made the place feel like home. She went above and beyond all our needs, always had time to speak, even though she was continually busy!! The place was so neat and tidy, just what we wanted. The breakfast was tasty and plentiful. I would go back right now if I could! LOL

Just returned from Connel where we had a lovely break. The Grove is furnished and cleaned to a very high standard. It is convenient for Connel Ferry railway station, local buses and is handy for the Falls of Lora Hotel which does good evening meals and has an impressive array of malts. Good choice of Guest House.

We stayed here while heading to Oban for the Highland Cattle sale and were delighted with the accommodation and the food. We do not know why this place is not charging more, as we would gladly have paid more for the experience. The People are lovely and the Breakfasts are absolutely out of this world!!!!
