The Grove Hotel Review

: A country estate built in the early 1700s, The Grove was once home to the Earls of Clarendon and a host of visitors including painter George Stubbs, Edward VII, Horace Walpole and Lord Palmerston. Guests today will find a romantic, peaceful resort, with formal gardens lush with rambling roses and 500-year-old olive trees, private terraces and woodlands --- all perfect for a quiet moment of contemplation. The property is full of original art, from sculpture to French antiques, giving it an air of eclectic sophistication. The championship eighteen-hole golf course was designed to integrate with the landscape's unique character while offering serious players a challenge; Tiger Woods won the World Golf Championship here in 2006. The Grove's Sequoia Spa offers rejuvenating treatments, a refurbished fitness studio and an ozone-filtered swimming pool. The three on-site restaurants feature varied menus, from gourmet multi-course meals at Colette's to "puds and cheeses" at The Stables. The Grove is a mere half hour from Heathrow with easy access to London, making it ideal for those who want the best of both worlds.
