  • 16 Guest Rooms + Yurts & Cottages
  • Luxury Seaside Hotel
Very comfortable family-run hotel on the North Norfolk Coast in a great seaside location.
The Grove is the sort of hotel we really like at Cool Places. It's family-run and has been for years; it occupies a lovely historic building that exudes a lived-in and appealing comfortableness that is hard to find – and even harder to fake; and it is run by enterprising people who are always looking to make the most of their property, and to go the extra mile for their guests, who tend to return again and again. Indeed, even if you have been here before, the feeling of peace that you get as you drive through the Grove's gates is always welcome, and the grounds have an almost womb-like appeal.

The hotel has 16 guest rooms, spread between the main house – very comfortable and provided with all amenities – and a timber-framed building in the garden, where the 5 'Orchard Rooms' are a bit more contemporary in style. The style of all the rooms is simple, understated and homely, with a mixture of antique and up-to-date furnishings and well-appointed en-suite bathrooms; all the rooms have Smart TVs, good WiFi and tea- and coffee-making facilities, and there are four rooms which are perfect for families (one with a record deck and stock of vinyl for dads and teens!).

The sumptuous grounds and gardens of the hotel are home to a heated indoor swimming pool, along with a handful of dog-friendly self-catering cottages, plus a shepherd's hut and five yurts for glamping. Nearby, the impressive kitchen garden provides ingredients for the hotel's two AA-rosette restaurant as well as its unique Sundowner Café in the grounds, which dispenses excellent pizzas and 'Norfolk tapas' throughout the summer – both are as much of a draw for non-residents as for hotel guests. There's also a cosy bar in the main house, with patio tables outside.

Finally, there's the location, which is something special. A footpath leads from the grounds through the woods to the cliffs and the beach below, and it's also a short stroll into the busy resort of Cromer in one direction, with its pier and nationally renowned chippies, or a slightly longer one to the nearby village of Overstrand, where the sand is lovely and there are crabs and lobsters for sale and a good clifftop beach café. The Grove is basically North Norfolk Heaven – for couples, families, or really anyone! at all

We just keep coming back

What can we say about The Grove.... In a world of cliched, over styled hotels, The Grove has both feet firmly in the real world and a kind of charm that can't be achieved with a lick of designer paint. Time and again when we have stayed here the staff have been amazing, the food has been fantastic and the facilities are exactly what you want from a British seaside hotel - beautiful grounds and access to the beach when the weather is good and an indoor swimming pool and a cozy bar when its not. We just keep coming back as we know in advance that our stay will always be perfect.

Would definitely recommend

First time we've stayed, or eaten, at The Grove. Recommended to us by friends. We loved the house, room, grounds and the scenic walk into Cromer. Dinner was excellent, all dishes were beautifully presented and delicious. Breakfast was also of a very high standard. Staff were friendly and professional throughout our stay. Would definitely recommend The hotel and restaurant. Looking forward to our next visit.

Top-class and keep telling friends about it!

We had a wonderful time, as expected, at the Grove. It was a Sunday Night Package with an extra night through a 300 Club Promotion. We had the privilege of being in the attic room 11. It is a great use of space and we loved the quirky way the old family bedrooms have been used. From the very first welcome to recognising there was a miscalculation on our extras bill, the staff are first rate. They bring a highly professional approach but you still feel you are being looked after by a family in a place that really matters to them personally. It is unusual as so many well run hotels, even with top class staff, miss that family warmth. Our meal on Sunday night was exceptional. The quality of the food was excellent. I had the Black Pudding starter which was a surprise when it came and was full of subtle flavours and a great texture. The baked Monkfish tail was innovative and again full of flavour. My wife had the smoked salmon pithivier which she loved. We both had desserts and had to take a pause in front of the fire before being able to face the stairs to number 11 as we both full and very happy! Breakfast has some of the best sausages that I have tasted anywhere and we was served with care and attention. We think the Grove is top class and keep telling friends about it! We were given very helpful advice about local bus services and enjoyed hearing more of the back story to the Grove. We look forward to our next visit!

First class

Lovely afternoon tea at the Grove. Excellent service, food and plentiful topping up with tea. First class. That’s why we keep coming back. Usually seated in the day lounge area but was busy so settled into the bar lounge which was warm, relaxed atmosphere with light music. Well done great job with all concerned.

No hesitation recommending

I was visiting Cromer with my daughter for a funeral. The staff at The Grove couldn't have been more helpful. My daughter has an electric vehicle and we were delighted that the hotel had 4 x electric charge points so we were able to hook up her vehicle the moment we arrived. We arrived earlier than expected and the hotel had already prepared our room and invited us to unwind and unpack earlier than we expected...that was lovely after a long drive. We were not expecting to have dinner at the hotel but we were very happy to have breakfast the next morning and were delighted with all that was on the menu. All fresh and the choice was endless. We had the Smoked Salmon and it was delightful and presented in a very beautiful way. The room was lovely, as a twin there was plenty of room for two and it had everything we needed from a cup of tea or coffee to a shower or bath. The beds were very comfortable, we had extra blankets should we need them but we didn't as the room was cosy. The staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. I have no hesitation to recommend The Grove and all its delights, especially the food! Thank you for making a difficult time more bearable! Hope to see you again one day.

Highly recommend

Highly recommend The Grove. Staff are highly attentive from greeting you upon arrival through to your entire stay. Nothing is too much trouble. There is always a lovely friendly atmosphere. The restaurant is superb, with great service and a fabulous chef. We have stayed many times and have always had superb meals. There is a great choice when it comes to breakfasts and again they never disappoint as quality ingredients are served. I always look forward to our stays at The Grove.

Fantastic stay

Thank you for a fantastic stay at your lovely hotel. You pull off the rare trick of providing 4-star plus country house hotel service and facilities, without the stuffy formality that one often experiences at other UK establishments. The dinner was memorable and again the highest level of service, but in a relaxed environment. Your location is also perfect offering a secluded position, yet in easy reach of Cromer. Thank you again - please thank your staff for a lovely stay.

Brilliant glamping, cottages & fab hotel

We had a wonderful weekend here with a big group of friends and family to mark a milestone birthday. The glamping and Shepherd's Lodge were so comfortable and the children loved it (and we loved the hot tub and warm croissants ordered from the hotel). The cottages were comfortable and well equipped and dog friendly. Everything clean and well kitted out. The hotel rooms were lovely, and the breakfast among the best we've ever had. The beach is so close but even if it had rained we'd have been well catered for with the pool, woods and Cromer an easy walk. Congratulations to the owners and all the staff for running such a fantastic place.

Cannot praise The Grove highly enough

We had a wonderful evening at The Grove from the moment we walked in the door. The elegance of the hotel, the relaxed atmosphere and the exceptional food and service are first class. The chef is to be commended, to me the food was of Michelin-star quality. Delicious! I cannot praise The Grove highly enough. We shall certainly be back!

Excellent stay

It was an excellent stay, unfortunately our group could only be at The Grove for one night. I am sure one or the other will return at some later point in time. Beautiful rooms, very nice house, great breakfast, even the small one at a very early time in the morning was really good. Thank you very much.

Tremendous stay

We had a tremendous stay. The luxurious room was beautiful and the bed large and comfortable. The two staff members who looked after us ensured that we had an excellent vegan evening meal and were friendly and attentive. It was a lovely atmosphere at the hotel, and I enjoyed an early morning swim before breakfast. Would definitely recommend this hotel for a special occasion or weekend getaway.

Nothing amiss in a lovely hotel and that includes lovely friendly staff

There was nothing not to like. The bedrooms were cosy, beds comfortable, excellent shower, delicious food. I could go on. It was a DBB offer. It would be nice to hear of any further offers e.g. in the quiet time following New Year.

A lovely low-key country house, tucked away but close enough to Cromer and the sea.

The room was huge and characterful, cleverly integrating two former attic rooms for servants and a corridor with the main space. One of those attic rooms was a snug with sofa, big TV, and wardrobe space, and the other was the bathroom, with a free-standing bath, shower cubicle and basin. The loo was in a separate space off the bedroom. The public rooms have a traditional but relaxed feel and the staff is friendly and always on hand. We had booked dinner as well. The room was nicely busy and the food I would call homely but classy at the same time, with just the right amount of choices. I knew the hotel was close to the coast but I was pleasantly surprised to learn you can get to the cliffs from there without having to walk back into Cromer.
