Gamesfest

Board games have always stood the test of time.  Even through the evolution of consoles and the increased complexity of online gaming, there’s nothing more satisfying than a fun couple of hours with family or friends, trying to outfox opponents,or working together to achieve a common aim!

We grew up with board games that still remain popular today and encourage guests to play our sizeable collection. Recently we’ve found ourselves joining guests in the lounge or bar for many a gaming evening, and have been growing our collection of modern board games – yes people are still inventing them and producing contemporary classics!.

So we’ve decided to offer board gamers, old and new, the opportunity to play and learn in a friendly and welcoming environment, whilst enjoying our tasty food, comfy beds and great value.  We present the Grosvenor House GamesFest board game weekends.

To simplify the booking process, there will be a standard rate for GamesFest board game weekends, and we will allocate rooms on a first-come, first-served basis.  In practice, this will mean the early bookers getting the Superior rooms and those big super-king sized beds!!

The exception will be for those booking extended stays, where normal room requests will be honoured (subject to availability).
