About Grove, The
Located a half hour from central London, The Grove sits on 300 acres of lush, private parkland and woodland in Hertfordshire, England. The 227-room property, named the U.K.'s "Best Leisure Hotel" by Condé Nast Traveller in 2007, provides a sophisticated ambience in a country setting.
Once the former residence of a British nobleman, the hotel grounds feature two tennis courts, croquet lawn, a stretch of beach with volleyball court, and a walled garden surrounding an outdoor swimming pool and gazebo. The 18-hole golf course hosted the 2006 World Golf Championships.
Inside, antique furnishings mingle with modern art, while dining options vary from classic to contemporary cuisine. The award-winning Sequoia spa offers a wide range of beauty and wellness facilities--a fitness center, indoor pool, crystal steam room, and dual suite are among the amenities--as well as à la carte services and day and short-stay programs.
