The Grove: Hotel review


Designer Martin Hulbert said: "We were very aware that these spaces would be used for brainstorming and creativity – but also for celebrations and special occasions. The designs are all about inspiration, bringing the great outdoors in, plenty of natural daylight and open views so people working or socialising in the rooms don’t feel fenced in.  And the art was chosen to make people smile and to think out of the box."
