The Grove Hotel

Macmillan Caring Locally owns and operates The Grove Hotel. The Grove is a unique, non-profit hotel in Bournemouth, dedicated to providing seaside holidays for patients with cancer and other life limiting illnesses.

We recognise that people with life limiting illnesses need a safe haven where they can go on holiday and make special memories with family and friends. The Grove offers peace of mind to their guests, specialist facilities and a qualified on-call nurse 24 hours a day.

“Thank you to all the staff at The Grove – nothing was too much trouble. My husband only found out about his cancer two months ago and the guests gave him fantastic hope that he may have longer than he thought. Myself, I loved the feel of the place – everyone happy, ‘living the day’, laughing at their illness rather than letting it get them down. See you in December”.

The Grove gives people with a life-limiting illnesses the opportunity to enjoy a holiday, knowing they will have all the support and care they need. Visit The Grove web site to learn more about the wonderful facilities, and don’t just take our word for it, read the reviews on Trip Advisor.

The Grove Hotel

We have just returned from a 5 night stay and cannot thank the amazing staff enough for the care shown to us. It was our first trip away with my husband’s disability and we arrived feeling somewhat apprehensive as to whether we’d manage. All our worries were immediately dissipated when we arrived and felt the care and love shown by the reception. We cannot thank you all enough for giving us a fantastic break … everything was faultless – food, entertainment and the trips on the minibus which enabled us to travel with ease with the wheelchair. We cannot wait for our return visit in September!
