I spent a long time looking for London lodgings for a week in January. I found that by and large London is a very expensive place and the price-to-value ratio is not always consistent. Thus, I decided to opt for a higher-end place to ensure quality, and booked at the Montague.
This turned out to be a very good decision. The Montague is tucked into a lovely low-rise neighborhood between the British Museum and Russell Square. You can walk everywhere from here, and still return to this peaceful neighborhood outside the hustle and bustle of downtown London.
The hotel itself is lovely. We had stays of 2 and 3 nights with a day in the middle, and thus tried two different room classes. For the longer stay, we treated ourselves to a junior suite on a 3 nights for 2 rate, and for the short stay had a king room (upgraded to a deluxe). Both rooms were impeccable and good-sized, with comfortable beds and well-equipped bathrooms. The junior suite had a walk-in closet! Both rooms were exceptionally well organized and functional. Although it's a small thing, all the switches in the room are labeled so you can determine what they do, several of the easily accessible electric sockets take multiple plug formats, and the wireless internet works well and is free.
The hotel staff is equally impeccable: formal in that particularly British way, but fundamentally friendly and helpful. I was particularly impressed to see the hotel manager regularly working on the lobby floor with the regular staff (as opposed to being sequestered in a back room office).
We had a cream-tea as part of a package, and that was lovely ... although it would have been nicer in the warm weather in the garden. We otherwise didn't try the restaurant.
All in all, I would stay here again in a flash!
