“Perfectly Adequate”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Lovely little 3 star country hotel with all you could ask for and at great rates. If you're a beer drinker, it's a pity it's owned by Greene King, but there are a couple of really good real-ale pubs close-by. Stockbridge is a bit pretentious, but The Grosvenor is down to earth with good restaurant and bar service, and friendly staff. We spent a pleasant stopover night here and would happily return or recommend it.

Room Tip: Don't worry about sleeping at the front, the road's not that busy.

Right in the centre of the village, on a main street by River Test lined with nice independent shops, a few pubs and cafes. Well-maintained old hotel - my single room was not ready when I arrived, so I was upgraded for free to a superior room - very nice! Helpful and professionally run. Good breakfast!

I love Stockbridge and have driven through it many times over the years, and vowed to stay at the Grosvenor. My daughter is getting married in June, so we decided to have a mother and daughter break. This hotel is very good value, our room was a little tired looking, but had all the facilties we needed. It was lovely and warm as was the hot water (at all times). Tea and coffee facilities, a very good hairdryer and ironing board and iron were all in the room. I have paid a lot more for a break away and not had any of those extras.
The food was of excellent quality and very reasonably priced. Stockbridge has a few fine eateries with prices to match, but the Grosvenor was more that adequate,both for evening meals, breakfast and wines. We were not at all disappointed with this hotel.

Room Tip: We were in room 19, which overlooked the street. The noisiest thing was the person/persons in the ro...

We had our 2nd visit to the Grosvenor last weekend which was another enjoyable stay.

Location is good, and parking is easy and free (some at the front of the hotel, and some in the car park at the back)

Stockbridge has lots of nice little shops to browse in too.

Really friendly staff, excellent meal in the evening, comfy room and great breakfast. What more can you ask?

A good price in a lovely setting, breakfast was nicely done and if 28 other guests on a Monday night in early March are any indication then it is doing the job well.

However, room 20 does suffer from noise until about 10;45 at night, some sort of fan that runs persistently and is intrusive.

In detail, some of the wallpaper could also be better hung and the door lock had seen better days.

Ordering the evening meal at the bar I then returned to order a dessert, unfortunately coordination between or in the kitchen failed and the dessert arrived first. It was however removed and fresh dessert presented when required so no real complaint, just a background glitch in the organisation.

Would I go again, yes, it is good value, full of character and nicely presented.

Spent a few night here recently. Like a lot of these old inns it can be a bit tatty round the edges, but far better than average; and with helpful staff, good plumbing, warm, plentiful parking and WiFi. The food is also good.

Room Tip: The 'superior' rooms are very spacious, but not really any difference in quality.
