Decided to book here as it looked lovely and it's round the corner from the motor museum. Checking in was well done - very attentive staff. We paid for a standard room - but the cost didn't represent the room at all - we had room 9 - well positioned overlooking the front of hotel, but oh my the room...

We were guests recently for a Sunday lunch. Absolutely fine. But - the loos are not disabled friendly - no grab handles to help, no adaptations. We checked beforehand, and the staff were incredibly helpful and understanding. There are disabled car spaces close to the main entrance: use these, rather than the car-parking for other visitors. There is a small...

My wife and I had a fantastic stay at the Montagu Arms with a 5 course tasting menu meal. The hotel was incredibly welcoming and attentive (further benefit of mid-week I guess) and upgraded us to a suite. The room was very comfortable and the meal was outstanding with extremely helpful and informative staff. It was such a relaxing break,...

Booked the Oakwood room at the hotel as a venue for my wife's 60th birthday celebration. Nine rooms were also booked by friends. The booking process and organisation of the evening were faultless. The food was superb and raved about by all attending. The ambience of the hotel is ideal for such an occasion with its log fires and lovely...

Want to leave modern life behind? Hire a car and drive to the New Forest and spend some time in the Montagu Arms Hotel. Picturesque setting. Extremely good service. Aged hotel (really very aged!). Wonder Michelin-starred restaurant (Terrace). All made for a memorable, worthy and relaxing stay. Recommended.

If you're looking for the perfect place to stay in the New Forest, this is it! The hotel itself is full of charm and character, with oak panels, log fires and pretty, established gardens. Our room was a four poster suite with separate lounge area, all beautifully appointed in keeping with this lovely old building. We ate in the Terrace...

Spent a night at the Montagu as a part of birthday celebration. All the reviews and indications were of great 4* hotel with an excellent restaurant and reputation.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Montagu Arms Hotel offers luxury accommodation in the quaint village of Beaulieu in Heart of the New Forest. The Michelin Starred Terrace Restaurant makes it the venue of choice for indulgently delicious fine dining with a taste of tranquil country life. The 18th Century Hotel is the perfect setting for a romantic getaway, walking holiday or a midweek break; oozing traditional charm with its open brick fireplaces, oak panelling and impressive gardens. The historical village of Beaulieu is just 30 minutes from Southampton Cruise Terminal making us the ideal base both pre and post your cruise. The Terrace Restaurant has held its Michelin Star for 5 years running and pays homage to both tradition and innovation; whilst Head chef Matthew Tomkinson uses the finest seasonal ingredients available to create award winning dishes. We are not ones for passing fads, every ingredient has to deserve its place in our dishes. No gimmicks, Just great food.For a more relaxed meal, Monty’s offers wonderful home-cooked classics or country fare, whilst delectable Afternoon Tea can be served in our conservatory or gardens. ... more   less
