Thankfully the English weather is back so decided to stay down in Bournemouth for an extra night and pleased with the Montague. Checkin was friendly and efficient. Allocated room on the second floor which faced the garden and the road. Keycard had breakfast times and wifi details (free and good service) and happy hour times (2 till 7 each day £2.70) Noise was not a problem as the hotel is set back from the roundabout.
Room was average size for a resort hotel. Modern flat screen tv, tea/coffee facilities and the bed was not too bad. No fridge unfortunately. Bathroom was good, slightly more modern than other hotels in the area I guess (water pressure in the shower & tub was fine) Soap dispensers on the wall and soft towels so all set. Even a shaver point.
Breakfast was okay, lots of cereal and fruit choices. Full English was cooked to order but was slightly overdone. Egg was not runny but firm and bacon a bit hard but presented well and hot (7/10) Toast and pastries if you wanted something lighter and great selection of fruit and herb teas.
Great location near all the restaurants and the town center. Free parking in the hotel which was a godsend. Checkout the photo of the hotel from yesteryear in the lobby toilet. Only downside was the thinness of the curtains so it was quite bright in the room at 6.45 a.m. Would definitely return when next down if there was availability.
