Bliss at the Grove
Perfect stay. The service was tip top, the bedrooms and facilities first class and the Indian restaurant was fabulous. The weather was beautiful and it was the nicest pool I’ve ever been in, it was so warm and the lunch around the pool was the highest quality and lots of choice. I didn’t feel I was in Watford it was like an oasis.

Standard room nice but a bit basic for this class if hotel. No mirror in bedroom? Nothing wrong and main areas of hotel are just stunning.
