We stayed one night after a very sad day (family funeral), from the day of booking to our arrival and departure,Clare and Gary could not have been more helpful and welcoming.Our rooms were fabulous, so luxurious and attractive, not to mention the homemade cupcakes left for us. A very attentive Gary served a beautiful breakfast made from their own and local produce, delicious. We all wish The Grove was closer to us in 'sunny' Scotland but hopefully we will return one day! Thank you.

Room Tip: All rooms are beautiful, comfortable, only downside,bathrooms are along a small corridor, they are superb tho!! The pink room overlooks the walled garden so this has the best view.

Bed & Breakfast doesn't really do the Grove credit. A lovely listed building that has been restored and modernised very carefully complemented by super hospitality. I was almost loathe to write a review to keep it as a secret for us.

A secret gem on the edge of Harpenden and a very welcome retreat after a busy day at work. Very friendly owners, delicious breakfast and beds to die for. We stayed in the one bedroom apartment which has everything you could possibly need for a weekend away. A real home away from home. We'll be back.

The Grove is a rare thing; it absolutely lives up to your expectations. A well built website promises lovely individual bedrooms in a listed building surrounded by fields and views, peace and quiet in spades but only 25 minutes from London. With pleasant hosts and a great cooked breakfast! The Grove does exactly what it says on the tin! Clare and Gary are thoughtful, pleasant, very helpful and have created a fantastic bed and breakfast with tons of character. We cannot recommend this place highly enough. Just hope it doesnt get too popular, we would love to go back soon!

Room Tip: Top of the house has excellent facilities and great views

My husband and I stayed in the Grove's beautiful one bedroom apartment for 10 nights last week (7-18 Aug). This was our second visit and we absolutely love it. The one bedroom apartment is very spacious and has its own entrance, it feels more like a holiday home than a bed and breakfast. The bedroom has a separate dressing area and a beautiful four poster bed. The living room is huge with two beautiful window seats. Very clean with all mod cons including wifi etc.

The benefit of the one bedroom apartment was that we could come and go as we pleased and entertain guests etc without disturbing other occupants. The grounds are stunning and the location is perfect, just a 10 min drive into Harpenden town centre.

Both Gary and Claire are very friendly and let us use part of their home as if it was our own. Before we discovered The Grove we stayed at the Sopwell House hotel and a few serviced apartments in St.Albans. The Grove beats them all hands down, we highly recommend it.
