The Montague on the Gardens is a lovely boutique hotel just off Russell Square and along side the British Museum. They are a ten minute walk from Euston Station. However, don't let their great location fool you. This is a hotel worth going out of your way for. The rooms are very comfortable and the public spaces are lovely. Its really like staying at a stately country house.
But, its the staff that make this hotel a pleasure. From the moment you enter, you are being looked after.
The bell and door staff are always helpful. The front desk could do a clinic for other more expensive flag ship hotels in the city. Ben was a star! Put simply, you're going to love staying here.
I was traveling for a work conference just up the street, but this hotel spoiled me into thinking I might actually be on vacation. The lounge is great. Its delightfully old school with a view of the lovely private walled gardens behind. They have a perfect semi-enclosed terrace where you can have a cigar and a whiskey to unwind after a long day. They really have thought of everything. If you want to melt into a big comfy chair in their saloon and watch the big game. . .you can do that too. The bar staff were both knowledgeable and friendly. Declan helped me choose a cigar and a new whiskey. He (like all his other hotel colleagues) seems to really enjoy his job and caring for guests.
Though I'd booked one of the smaller double rooms to hit my company's target price for London, I was upgraded to a very spacious room on the ground floor with a large and comfortable king bed. The bathroom is regal and the sheets are top notch. I don't love that the bed is really two twins mashed together, but I recognize this as a European standard. Excellent coffee/tea service in your room reminds you that they really have thought of everything.
The restaurant and parlor area are equally beautiful. Breakfast is delicious and probably worth the price, though be warned it is quite expensive. Tea is a grown up version and you won't be overrun with bridesmaids or 9 year olds. You can sit in the overstuffed sofa, enjoy your tea and sandwiches and work in peace. Very charming.
I think I've found my new home away from home in London.
