A different crowd at the Grosvenor


The Grosvenor was out of the city, on Hagley Road, after Meadow Road.  Nowadays if you go past four or five demolished buildings, the last one standing is the old Grosvenor.  It had a very long beautiful lawn at the back of the hotel, with a small swimming pool, 8 foot across and 5 foot deep.

When the Grosvenor first opened, the members had keys to the front door; there was no one permanently on reception.  It was only if you had to sign a guest in that you would ring the bell and someone would come down. It was a different crowd from the Nightingale, the place was more expensive.
