Hazel was a great source of information about places to go. We had privacy when we needed it and the dinners were a great source of conversation across cultures. Even took my sister on a ride of her haunts when I was not feeling well. Hazel has a place in my heart. Enduring and welcoming.

Grove Guest House is that sort of place you want to return to again and again. Located within walking distance from Forest Gate station makes it easily accessible from the city. The rooms are homey and cozy, and Hazel as the world's best host will make you feel right at home. I love coming here and will definitely be back!

I stayed at the Grove Guest House for six nights. It has originally furnished rooms, your own options for a generous breakfast, a relaxing garden, a warm and caring hostess and is near all necessary communications. If you want to stay in a tourist trap: Do so! If you wan't to stay in London: Stay here!

My son and I have stayed in 2015 & 2016 when we visited the Anniversary Games at the Olympic Stadium and also finding places in Bromley-by-Bow and Islington where our ancestors lived in the early-mid 19th century.

We had a wonderful time at this house! We were welcomed with open arms, and every morning we had a nice home cooked breakfast :) We would absolutely recommend this stay to anyone traveling to London! Such a warm environment, very close to public transportation as well as grocery stores and many things to do!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This light and spacious double en-suite is in a beautiful, large, hospitable Victorian family home, only a mile from the Olympic site & Stratford Westfield shopping centre. We offer: excellent transport links to central London; a large garden; wifi; easy access (stair-lift, grab rails etc.); inclusive breakfast (special diets no problem)! Here are the details. • The large double bedroom has an en-suite shower, toilet and wash basin. Free Wifi and laundry facilities are available. • Breakfast is included; evening meals can be provided by arrangement. We happily cater for a range of dietary needs including gluten-free, lactose-free, vegetarian, vegan and meat/fish eaters. • You are welcome to relax in our large garden or in the conservatory, and to smoke in the garden / conservatory (but not in the house).• We are very access-conscious and are more than happy to discuss your needs! The house has shallow steps at the front entrance, a stair-lift to the first floor and three steps up to the bedroom. There are grab-rails through corridors and in the en-suite (where there is a step up to the shower). There are shallow steps into the garden. • We have safe storage for cycles or a mobility scooter and parking for one car on the forecourt (by arrangement).• Local transport offers fast bus/train/tube links to the West End, Central London and Docklands. Forest Gate railway station (in the local shopping centre) is just a 3 minute walk, with the Stratford rail/tube hub just two stops away. Museums, galleries, theatres and West End shopping are therefore within easy reach. Taxis from Stratford station to the house are reasonably priced if you are late home. We look forward to welcoming you to our family home, and will do everything we can to make your stay comfortable, relaxing and memorable. ... more   less
