“Nice Hotel in nice grounds”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Stayed at this hotel several times over a 6 month period. Nice and close for the office but far enough away at the same time, nice grounds set away from the roads, only issue I found was the car parking was abit sparing but overall nice food, nice clean rooms and good wifi

This was the only hotel with a room with disabled facilities in the area. We knew in advance that the room was not fully equipped for the disabled, but visiting family nearby meant we had no other choice. There was only one drop down hand rail by the toilet, and the shower was in the bath. Despite this we were told that the room complied with current regulations. The towels were thin and worn. The room was very spacious, the bed comfortable and plenty of drawer/hanging space.
The breakfast was excellent as were the staff.

This is a fantastic venue...... I have recently moved from Farnham’s Hall in Ware to this hotel as it has a golf course on site allowing me a little more exercise. It also has a gym, swimming pool and an excellent restaurant. The rooms are very well decorated and are large in size. The food is excellent and the service superb. The manor is set within its own grounds and they are also fantastic. I wish that I knew about this venue several years ago whilst living in a Premier Inn! The basic room rates are fairly priced although if you are staying for an extended period you can negotiate a lower rate.

If I were to have stayed here as a stopping point on holiday or even as a one off break I would have no hesitation in recommending it to my family - its that good!

Room Tip: Try and choose the lower floor rooms as the distance from reception can be a long trek otherwise.

We planned our wedding to be small and intimate just the two of us and 16 close family members. We found Manor of Groves on the web and booked it for our wedding, hoping the when we got the chance to visit, (we don't live locally) it matched the pictures. It did. Although a few areas were in need of a lick of paint, that's to be expected in a period building.

We booked 8 rooms and although we only saw inside ours and 2 others everyone was happy with the size, facilities and cleanliness.

Staff bent over backwards to make sure everything went to plan for us even though there were two other much larger wedding taking place on the same day.

We stayed on the Friday night before our wedding eating in the hotel, the food was beautifully presented and very good, we both said we hoped the wedding breakfast would be just a good and it really was.

A big thank you to all the events team and hotel staff who made our say and 'big' day so very special.

Room Tip: Check with hotel as when some function rooms are rearranged at the end of the night staff cannot he...

Attended a wedding here that went well for the happy couple. Lovely photo's were taken in the gazebo and grounds. We booked into the hotel for the night thinking we would be in for a good treat. I have to say it was very disappointing. The hotel clearly needs major renovation and decoration. The room was large and the furniture was fine however due to a not very nice smell and the windows having to be opened it was evident they were rotting needed painting and not in good repair. There was also a balcony running along the building on the outside thankfully in the morning I was fully dressed when standing in front of the window looking out when a man with a suitcase walked by! To get there I would have had to have climbed out of the window. The shower was a nightmare it could be either hot hot hot or cold cold cold not a pleasant experience. The bathroom also needed decorating and the toilet under the rim was vile this is easily noticeable to anyone cleaning it. There was also no toilet brush.

My new wife and I held our wedding at this wonderful venue at the weekend (31st August), and really wanted to praise all the staff who helped our day go so wonderfully. The service, from original booking, through the planning phase, and on the day was very professional, friendly and nothing seemed too much trouble. The wedding coordinators (Mary, Laura, Vicki) were always happy to answer all our questions and clarify all our queries (large or small), and the handover to the banqueting staff, led by the excellent Callan who looked after us on the day, apparently seamless. Any small problems were quickly rectified and we felt the venue really took their job seriously, taking pride in delivering a great day for us. I think it reflects very well, that where there were some minor issues (you can't account for everything and some things are outside of our control) that they responded well, calmly and looked to rectify the situation as quickly as possible, ensuring there was no/minimal impact to the event.
The food was of a very high quality, and I was extremely impressed by the way they got the food out for so many people in a short amount of time, my compliments to the chef and the whole kitchen team. We had many compliments from our guests.
Other highlights/points which you may want to consider when booking here:
Beautiful setting, with opportunity (weather permitting) to have ceremony outside in gazebo. Lots of space for guests to relax in, exclusive to the wedding (ie Separate from other hotel guests, and although the hotel may have two weddings on as it did on our day, we didn't cross at all with the other, so the venue still felt special/exclusive to us, as I hope it did for the other party). As with all the food, breakfast is of a good standard, and the opportunity to have private breakfast for us and our guests who also stayed was a nice touch. The rooms are very clean and spacious, and although the decor may not be to everyone's taste, I think that's a subjective view, and they are generally well fitted. Pricewise, i think when you consider what other places charge, Manor of Groves are relatively reasonably placed (lets be honest, weddings in any of these types of venues aren't cheap), and having looked around at numerous other places I think for what they provide and their level of service they seem to compare very favourably. I would recommend this venue to others, especially if you're looking for a professional, welcoming, and friendly service, set in wonderful grounds. Thank you to all at Manor Of Groves who made our day so amazing, and hope to be back for a visit in the future.
