100% would recommend it to a friend
The hotel made us very welcome and our room was prepared early as requested.
This gave us time to unpack and freshen up before the wedding. Everything was well organised and the day was perfect, and it was really nice to have a breakfast room so that we could meet everyone the next morning. We would recommend this hotel and could be back for a long weekend in the future. Well done.
Manor of Groves Hotel
The hotel is set in beautiful grounds, we had a standard double room which was excellent, a good size and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay.
The food was good especially the breakfast. Dinner in the restaurant was good although a mix up with the steaks meant mine was sent back but I received another and we were only charged for one dinner. I would definitely stay here again and use the facilities, swimming pool, gym etc next time.
