About Us

The Grove is one of three prestigious hotels operated by Ralph Trustees, a family owned hotel group. We are a spectacular 5* venue and resort, offering our customers a slice of tranquillity and calm, away from the stresses of every day life.

Across our 300-acre estate we offer fine dining, a range of outdoor activities (including our famed Golf course) and an indulgent award-winning spa and health club. Being family owned means that both our guests and our employees are treated as individuals and not one of the crowd.

  • The chance to make use of the on-site award-winning facilities such as the spa, golf course and gym.
  • A staff canteen with a free meal during your shift
  • A subsidised shuttle bus from Watford town centre
