The Grove is a modern, smart hotel close to the M25.
The building is slightly weird – a medium-grade country house backed by a very large, modern, high quality hotel extension, and surrounded by a golf course.
Our room, however, was comfortable, well-designed and sophisticated; and the overall experience of the hotel was very good.
One disappointment was with swimming pools. For good reasons, children aren't allowed in the spa pool – they can spoil the experience when you're have a quiet, couple's weekend break. However, the alternative pool was only good for very small children, meaning that there are no real family swimming facilities.
That said, we had fun playing pool on the full-sized table, and we had a good walk around the grounds.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay, and I recommend the Grove.
