Amazing experience Food was certainly the highlight. Waiting and bar staff were helpful, tentative and friendly. The room was lovely, clean and had everything we needed. Service always amazing during out stay. Really enjoyed the treatments. Spa staff were lovely. A shame not all facilities were available but I'm sure the upgrade will be worth it. Only recommendation; Would have liked more filtered cold water stations available to top up my bottle in areas around the main hotel. However, we are heading home fully relaxed and looking forward to our next visit.

The Grove is such a beautiful venue and every time we go we have a lovely time. Staff are delightful and the food is impeccable. Drinks are great and I really enjoyed my Hendricks & Fever Tree tonic's this evening. The grounds are so beautiful to walk around and the Stables bar is a great place to grab a few drinks and have some bar food with a great atmosphere. We are yet to try the spa but that is next on our list to try as it looks fantastic.

It is its own destination. Place is just stunning. The gardens are a delight, the staff are super friendly and helpful. It's sumptuous, quirky, they had outdoor cinema when I went. What more could you ask. The lounges are just fabulous, each one more gorgeous than the last-I didn't want to leave!!!!

I have just finished working on an event where we took over the whole hotel. I think it is the best hotel I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Every member of staff was incredible and I mean every single staff member. They were extremely helpful with no request to big. They are yes people and made a hard event seem easy. It was also great to see how much they enjoy working with each other and even during the most stressful moments their team work shone through. I hope to be lucky enough to be working on another event here.

Spent a night here for my birthday and loved every minute. The service, the food, the room, the facilities, the grounds were all gorgeous and everything felt luxe. We were made to feel very welcome with our kids during our stay, which made it extra relaxing and enjoyable. The temperature of the pools was perfect, the bed was so comfortable and the room was quiet, calm, with a big balcony to enjoy the view of the gardens and it felt like a lovely place to be when we weren’t enjoy the spa, the pools or the gardens. There was loads to explore within the grounds and our kids loved the games room, crafting cottage and the amazing event breakfast. Can’t wait to return! Thanks to all the staff for making our stay so memorable.
