We arrived to a beautiful large hotel/ home , straight away it had a likability feel about the place. Our room was amazing, took my breath away. Spent a couple of days here, with breakfast. If your looking somewhere quiet, relaxing with a stones throw away from Pool then this the place for you. Suitable for older couples, that love class and quality. Thank-you, we will definitely return . A little tip. Book directly you might find it’s cheaper.

When the opportunity for a weekend in Poole based on a party invitation came, we decided to treat ourselves to a luxury hotel and spa for a two night stay. My wife booked through Booking.com and at £400 for two nights in early November with a four star rating, an experience of ‘Old England’ coupled with the comforts and expectations of the 21st century, where personal service is important, great Food: meals here are highly recommended… said the website. At £400 for a double room for two nights it should have been great… it wasn’t. We booked in late September and the first reality check came when we checked the website for directions. The week of the trip and found the offer for a two night stay on the November weekend we had chosen at almost half the price we had paid a deposit of £200 on. We immediately contacted the hotel and the proprietor answered the phone. His explanation that when we had booked it was sunny and he could anticipate bookings and now it cold and damp forced him to have special offers, did not cut any ice but he did offer an extra room. Booking.com were contacted to invoke their advertised price match, but failed to do anything, other than to confirm we were being upgraded to a superior room The second reality check came on arrival after a three hour drive, arriving at 19:30 to be met by the proprietor and told there is no food available “ it says so on the website”.. it doesn’t it says,” Great Food-Meals here are Highly recommended” Third reality check came on sight of the room – four poster bed, bright décor, but only one luggage rack and nowhere to hang clothes – the extra room turned out to be a 6 foot square extension to the room with the bathroom attached. There was a wardrobe in here, if something 46cms wide counts as a wardrobe, a television powered from a 4 gang trailing extension socket, a two seater mini settee and a coffee table with a kettle. The bathroom had a door that wouldn’t open past halfway and the wall mounted electric shower had shower head connectors, black with damp. No bath. The website also mentions – really clean – friendly staff – lovely room. Certainly the cleanliness was generally good, the only staff seen were one house attendant changing linen and the chef who cooked and served the full English Breakfast to order. Good breakfast – not sure about award winning though. Overall this is not a four star hotel but an upmarket Bed and Breakfast guest house with delusions of grandeur. It would have great value at £85 per night but £400 for two nights is bordering on mis-representation.

WE ARE NOT A SPA HOTEL! And we do not advertise as such. Prices fluctuate as per supply and demand. We would expect you to understand this, being the managing director of a company yourself. As you stated in your email to us, Caveat Emptor applies here as you well know. You did not check our facilities list before you booked. Had you done your due diligence you would have known that we do not have an on-site restaurant, we serve breakfast which IS A MEAL. (In reference to booking.com stating "Great Food-Meals here are Highly recommended") We feel that your objectively unreasonable and unfair review, is based purely on your incorrect presumption of what we offer, you can find a full list of our facilities on booking.com. (The channel through which you booked your stay with us.) Kind regards, Grovefield Manor.

We stayed here for two nights for which we paid £480. We asked for a room with a view - for which we were given a small room (where we could not both move around at the same time) overlooking the next door property. The first night we were there there was loud music from this house until late into the night. The bathroom fittings have been done on the cheap - we had trouble pressing the button to flush the toilet as it was so stiff. Breakfast was also done on the cheap - the cheapest form of bread for toast, cheap orange juice, and coffee from a communal pot, one rasher of bacon for cooked breakfast…breakfast table stained. This was not what we anticipated when we had spent such a significant sum of money. We were hugely disappointed and would certainly not recommend this place.

If you wanted a room with a view, perhaps you should have done your research prior to booking. If you had, you would have known that we don’t have sea views where we are situated. With regards to the loud music, this was NOT coming from our premises and we cannot be held responsible for the actions of others. (This would be absolutely unreasonable as we are sure you would agree) This is not a regular occurrence in our area as we are on a quiet road. We have not noticed any excessive stiffness on any of the rooms toilet flushers, however we will look into this further and we thank you for bringing it to our attention. With regards to your complaint about breakfast, we quite simply do not use substandard product of any sort, and one rasher of bacon is standard in a full English, however we are sure that had you asked, we could have given you another. We have high quality hard wood tables in our breakfast room. Even so they are still susceptible to the occasional tea or coffee stain and, short of replacing them to great cost, there is not any reasonable method to remedy this. Thank you for your review. Kind regards, Grovefield Manor.

The plumbimg was dreadful. The shower sounded like an aircraft taking off, the bath taps weren't fixed to the bath, the drain didn't drain properly resulting in being ip to uour ankles in soapy water, the water pressure on the sink was non existent and the toilet moved when you sat on it. The cooked breakfast was greasy and the choice of cereals was very limited. The owner was rude to our friends who had called to pick us us, makng them wait outside. All this whilst paying £220 per night. Not what we expected for that money.
