Grove Guest House is a great place to experience London just outside the city center. The bed and breakfast is conveniently located near a bus stop that isn't far from Stratford station making transportation a breeze. The hostess is very welcoming and generous with her home, which immediately put me at ease with my decision of where to stay in London. Breakfast is delicious and afterwards we sat in the garden as she provided me with a map and the best use of my time for "MUST SEE" destinations throughout the city.

Hazel is an absolutely wonderful host. We arrived late at night, about 12 hours later than we expected, due to flight problems but Hazel stayed up late to let us in. Our luggage arrived in England even later than we did and she did a great deal to minimize that inconvenience. She cooks wonderful breakfasts and the room we stayed in was comfortable and quiet. Her home is a short walk to the Forest Gate train station (about a block away), where you can catch a train to Stratford station, a much larger station from which you can get just about anywhere in London. On the Sunday we were there we had to wait about ten minutes for the train at Forest Gate, on the other days of the week we were there the trains were running more frequently than that.

This is a kind of "home stay", but the hosts were all friendly and kind to me. They also helped planning my trip. Please note that the place has no significant sign since it is a simple house, it may be a bit hard to find the exact location.

I've travelled a great deal in my working life, all over the globe and stayed in some lovely (and not so lovely!) hotels. I booked The Grove not having read any of the previous reviews. Hazel is nothing short of wonderful. End of. I have never received a better welcome at any place I have ever stayed. Nothing is too much trouble and she made my three night stay an absolute pleasure. Bed was soooooooo comfortable! Do not book The Grove if you are expecting a "standard" London hotel or guest house - It is way better than that. I will definitely re-book when I am next in London. One last thing though Hazel..... You could definitely put your prices up, stop selling yourself short :-)

Over 6 weeks and more than a dozen BnB's, guesthouses, hotels and hostels, we found Hazel's 'Grove Guest House' to be an outstanding stay for value for money and a friendly, warm welcome.Our hostess, Hazel, genuinely likes people and generously shares her home with them. When I arrived I had undergone some tummy problems in France and Hazel made particular efforts to ensure that, despite the shared bathroom we had booked, we had the use of toilet and bathroom to ourselves(this, I suspect, may have been at some inconvenience to herself).She was a great help in organizing a one- day (self guided) tour that took in many of London's sights yet still considered our budget.Her knowledge of London and, particularly, the East end is unequalled.And her hot cooked brekky each morning gave us a great start to the day (Yum, the porridge!)Thanks Hazel.

Hazel was very friendly and organised. She kept me informed when she was out and was accomodating even when so arrived late and we had a nice chat over breakfast. The room was good size and clean. Generally it was a little too cluttered for my taste but others might like the homely feel if the B&B. Location is 5 mins from Forest Gate train station but the surrounding area is a bit rough. Good price for a room in London.

From the moment Hazel sent me further detailed information about my stay to the day I arrived it has been an exceptional experience. My room was a delight, full of interesting items to wonder at and a gloriously comfy and big bed including 4 pillows). The Full English breakfast was perfection and Hazel's company were just the best. I am coming back here again soon.

Well appointed room, extensive breakfast menu and very attentive hosts. Linlithgow is small enough to offer a great village atmosphere but large enough to provide dining choice and meet shopping needs. Only shortfall is parking but we managed to find a spot each evening.

Grove Guest House is by far the best hotel experience I have had in my life. Forget about cramped rooms and assembly-line breakfasts. Hazel opens her beautiful, quirky Victorian house with it's spacious rooms to you, and provides personal service, advice and company. Two-hour lunch? Need a ride to the park? Helping out with laundry? No problems. The Guest House is situated 15 minutes by train from Liverpool Street Station, which is central enough. The nearby Wanstead Park is absolutely stunning and must be London's best kept secret. You will leave Grove Guest House counting the days till you can return.

Das Grove GuestHouse liegt im Randbezirk Londons und ist in ca. 30 Minuten von Oxford Circus erreichbar. Bis zum Bus oder zur Bahn sind es nur ein paar Minuten zu Fuß und auch Geschäfte um Lebensmittel zu kaufen sind in unmittelbarer Nähe.In 10 Minuten erreichbar ist eine große Shopping Mall und das Olympia Zentrum. Hazel ist eine großartige Gastgeberin. Unser Zimmer war sehr vollgestellt, trotzdem schafft Hazel es, dass man sich nach sehr kurzer Zeit zuhause fühlt und es unwichtig ist, wieviel Platz das ZImmer hat. Wir hatten ein Zimmer ohne Bad. Das Zimmer mit Bad ist sehr hübsch und ich würde es beim nächsten Aufenthalt buchen und auch weiter empfehlen! Hazel kocht, wenn es gewünscht ist und auch abends sitzt sie jederzeit mit ihren Gästen zusammen und unterhält sich über alles und jenes. Sie ist einfach herzlich! Auf Allergien und Lebensmittelintoleranzen geht Hazel sehr gut ein! Eine Glutenfreie Ernährung war für mich dort kein Problem! Zum Frühstück bekommt man das, was man möchte und Hazel erfüllt jeden Wunsch! Auch für Unternehmungen hat sie jederzeit gute Tipps bereit! Komme als Fremder, und gehe als Freund . Das steht in ihrem Eingang-und das lebt sie auch!

Hazel, die Besitzerin des Gasthauses ist überaus freundlich und immer bemüht zu helfen wo sie kann. Tatsächlich ist es so dass man sich mehr als Freund denn als Gast fühlt, wenn man nach einem langen Tag "nach Hause" kommt. Sie ist immer gern bereit bei Tourenplanungen zu helfen, aber auch ein Abendessen zu servieren, wenn man sich rechtzeitig anmeldet. Unbedingt wissenswert: das Haus liegt etwas außerhalb der City, dadurch relativ ruhig und gut mit der Bahn zu erreichen, die allerdings vor dem Garten am Haus in regelmäßigen Abständen vorbeirauscht. Wir hatten allerdings das Double-Bed-ensuite mit Blick auf die Straße und konnten da selbst mit offenem Fenster hervorragend schlafen.

Hazel ist eine ausgezeichnete Gastgeberin, die sich um ihre Gäste sorgt und sich sehr kümmert. Sie hilft bei der Reiseplanung und gibt gute Tipps! Das Zimmer hätte ein weniger geräumiger sein können. Für denjenigen, der lieber zurückgezogen ist und seine Ruhe haben will, ist dieses Guest House vielleicht nicht die richtige Wahl. Wer aber alleine reist, wird in diesen Familienbetrieb so herzlich aufgenommen, dass er/sie sich wie ein Familienmitglied vorkommt.

"Found our new home to stay in when visiting London!"
05/10/15 Suzie S Swadlincote, United Kingdom
Where to begin! Hazel is the warmest, friendliest and most knowledgeable hostess/B&B lady I've ever met! The house is old, warm, quirky, beautiful and full of interesting things and so homely. The room we stayed in was at the front of the house and was a lovely big size, light with lovely windows and a small en suite. It was clean and quirky! Gorgeous old furniture and a beautiful, comfortable bed to sleep in. Hazel is flexible with breakfast and cooks a cracking full english! Sitting around the big table felt like a family affair and we loved it. Hazel is full of fun and knowledge and nothing is too much trouble for her. She goes out of her way to make sure your stay is great and your adventures are safe and sorted! Have no worries if you don't know how to get around or haven't even decided what to do or see, Hazel will help :) Getting to London and back to Hazels was much easier than I thought and is a fabulous base. One which is now going to be our regular whenever we have London or near adventures to go on! I left feeling like Id made a new friend. And what a lovely, sweet, fun friend! Thank you so much Hazel, you and your B&B are gems! xx

I couldn't have asked for a better host. Traveling solo, Hazel's hospitality and companionship was top notch, starting from the moment I first booked my stay. Very convenient location, rail station less than a 5 minute walk with markets and restaurants along the way. Easy commute from Liverpool Street Station or Stratford. Safe to walk around at night. My room was much larger than I had expected and the house was full of charming and conversational decor. I don't usually leave feedback, but Hazel more than deserves this one. I will surely return, that is certain :)

We so enjoyed our stay with Hazel. We were celebrating our daughter's 7th birthday and Hazel did so much to make her feel special. Birthday cake, presents, horns to blow, we felt like family. Hazel's breakfast is wonderful and the guest house is in a neighborhood with easy access to downtown London. Hazel even drove us to the train station one morning!! Thanks Hazel, we will always remember the fun you provided.

Me and my friend stayed for a night and Hazel was such a great host, she gave us a map to use while around and gave us lifts to Stratford station. Perfect stay for the O2 we went to see Mcbusted, the overground was less than a 2minute walk which lead to Stratford Int where the underground went to the O2. The rooms were lovely and cosy, as was the bathroom, with all facilities easily accessible. The breakfast included was much better than that to have been had at a restaurant. Hazel was so friendly, worth the stay for sure!

Staying at Hazel's place feels more like being at home than being away, it's more like staying at the home of a good friend rather than a business owner. Hazel is really warm, generous and helpful and definitely merits the brilliant reviews she has on here. The room I stayed in was large, quiet and very comfortable. The breakfast was tailored to whatever I wanted and tasted magic. The train station is a few minutes walk down the road with very good links into London. A brilliant B'n'B.
