The grove is a great place for cancer patients and their family or friends and even on Their own. The staff are so kind, friendly and understanding, the rooms are spotless the food 5star the service faultless. The staff and other residents made us feel right at home. Highly recommended and I will be going back for another 5star experience:)))

With a life limiting illnrss holidaying alone can be difficult, the Grove was able to meet all my needs and some more. Every aspect of my stay from the excellent food, spotless room, nice gardens were there to be enjoyed, but most of all the staff were exceptional. From the young lady who took care of my room, the reception staff, resturant staff and the nursing team all made me feel safe secure and welcome to share this unique hotel.
With luck I will be there again next year, well done.

My wife and I have just returned from a very enjoyable short stay at the Grove Hotel. We cannot recommend it enough. The staff were so caring and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Our room was spotless and everything you could wish for was available including dressing gowns, slippers, flat screen TV and tea and coffee making facilities. There were even reclining chairs in the lounge for your comfort, lovely gardens and a beach hut overlooking the beautiful sands which was accessible via the cliff lift which was a short stroll from the hotel. The varied menu was excellent and the bar was a great surprise. We had a wonderful few days and will be returning soon.

Finding out about this hotel in the Oncology department of the Kent and Canterbury hospital, we thought it looked inviting, and decided to give it a go. Get your GP to confirm your illness on the application form, you can't go unless you are suffering from cancer or a life threatening illness, although your family/carers can accompany you, and go and enjoy, as we did, what will probably be the best hotel you have ever stayed in in your life. Everything is superb, from the welcome that you will receive to the farewell hugs and good wishes. Food, attention from the caring staff, the rooms, the free bus trips - nothing can be faulted. We have had two holidays there, and a third is already booked. Bournemouth is a pleasant place, and has great bus services for you to use your bus pass on, with plenty of nearby places of interest to visit. Ill with a life threatening disease? Get yourself booked in ! But one warning - this hotel is for the less able, not for the still very active person - no swimming pool or fitness centre.

Mike and Maureen, Sept. 2013

Room Tip: Try a superior upgrade - well worth it.

Having stayed in many first-class hotels during my working life I was amazed at the standard of The Grove. Decor and cleanliness were beyond reproach, the food was excellent, but, what made it a stand-out experience was the staff. They were/are fantastic. Nothing fazed them and they went beyond what one could normally expect in order to make our stay absolutely delightful: and all done with a smile. As for the clientele, you could expect people with their range of problems to be less than happy with their lot. How wrong you'd be. They were cheerful and hugely enthusiastic about their holiday, in no small measure due to the attitude of the staff as mentioned earlier.
