This resort is on a beautiful property with outstanding accommodations. One glitch was we had requested and confirmed that a hotel driver would pick us up at Heathrow for a fee upon our 7:30 am arrival from the US. When we arrived, no one was there. After waiting 35 minutes, we called and they said someone would be there shortly... More

My mum was bought an afternoon tea gift voucher for 2 people for her birthday & luckily for me she took me with her. I've been to the Grove quite a few times to the Glasshouse & Stables which were both very nice. We both loved the room the tea was served in & the service was fantastic. The sandwiches... More

Stayed here during our company's conference. Lovely hotel amidst beautiful grounds. The grand Union canal flows right through the golf course. Got a chance to experience the rooms, conference centre and food. Rooms were spacious and comfortable. The mattress was perfect for an excellent sleep. The food throughout the lunch, tea time, breakfast and dinner was top notch. Service was... More

This place is so so amazing. The golf course is challenging but awesome. The stables bar friendly and today being so sunny was just perfect sat outside. We had the buffet in the Glasshouse the food was out of this world for a buffet and the choices second to none. Keep it up year after year consistently good.

Hubby booked the glasshouse as a surprise for my 50th birthday. What a complete let down. Not allowed drink in the bar taken straight to the table despite being half an hour early! Told we could drink at the table. Service really lacking, when ordering a glass of wine (hubby not a wine drinker) waitress said "oh so you don't... More

Went to a function at The Grove . We arrived on the Sunday afternoon to be met by the most outstanding setting surrounded by a magnificent golf course. The Hotel , service and room was stunning. The staff were very friendly & helpful. The event which was a wedding was wonderful & on Monday morning were served a delicious breakfast.

I was a guest for a corporate event and found the hotel easy to get to from Central London. The hotel is formed from an old country house, merged with a modern extension. The architects obviously didn't give the building much thought, the walk from the main reception to some rooms is literally hundreds of metres and somewhat frustrating. The... More

This is a seriously plush, very chic hotel. Driving in, if you're a car nut, every other car is a Ferrari, Bentley, i8 etc... There was even a sodding pagani zonda parked up outside! You have staff who tend to your every whim, valet parking, lovely grounds. It's nice. That said, the rooms (we were in standards) were so, so... More

I had heard of The Grove, it's about ten miles from where I live, but had never had the opportunity to visit. I had the privilege of attending a business lunch meeting here. The grounds are simply stunning, and vast, clearly geared up for golfing but beautiful nonetheless. I was there on a hot, sunny September day and had lunch... More
