Beautiful building with beautiful surroundings. Indoors greets you with lovely warm atmosphere. The staff are all very friendly and always smiling making your stay welcoming. Had an amazing spa treat at Sequoia Spa.....although a little pricey! Dinner at The Stables Restaurant was of the best quality and everything was cooked to perfection and absolutely delicious. Buffet breakfast at The Glasshouse Is really something to experience. Abundance in variety and extremely fresh. I wouldn’t hesitate a moment to visit The Grove again.
