Close to London, The Grove has travelled the centuries from being the pre-Elizabethan home to a line of Earls of Clarendon through to the weekend retreat for media darlings and execs. The drawing rooms are about relaxed luxury, each creating a different mood and atmosphere. In the bedroom, there are quirky takes on traditional with four-poster beds made of Perspex. We love the way they categorise the Suites in the old manor house. You get to choose between: Elegant Fresh and Classic, Soothing Cool and Contemporary and Sumptuous Hot and Sexy. Give us number three every time. Choose the look and feel that appeals to your taste or mood. The Luxury Travel Bible loves Vice-presidential Suite 45. Tucked away in the eaves, the suite is the epitome of decadence with a four-poster bed, topped with ostrich feathers.
The (comparatively) new west wing celebrates modernism with glass walls and curved corridors.
