At the end of our two week vacation (and wedding) in the Caribbean we wanted to end on a high note and so we decided that a night in London to take in a show, Mamma Mia as it happened would be the perfect thing. After reading some reviews on trip advisor I chose The Montague on the Gardens and I feel that I made a very good choice.
I booked a junior suite directly with the hotel and enquired if an early check in would be possible as our flight arrived in London Gatwick at 5.30 am. The hotel told me that we could definitely have the room at 12 noon and earlier if possible.
We actually arrived at the hotel at about 9.30, planning to just leave our bags and freshen up before we went out for a walk for a few hours. We checked in very easily and were told that our room would be ready by 11am. So a quick coffee in a local café and a look into the British museum (literally, just around the corner) and back to the hotel for a much needed siesta.
The room was decorated in a “heavy traditional English style” but the separate sitting room, bathroom and separate en suite shower were more than satisfactory. The bed was very comfortable and with the help of the blackout curtains we were soon asleep.
We had a light pre-theatre dinner on the terrace at the rear of the gardens which was delightful, the main courses were very tasty, perfectly cooked and nicely portioned.
When we returned to our room after the theatre we found a selection of fresh fruits along with a card from the management offering congratulations on our marriage. Did I mention the bottle of champagne that arrived at our room earlier in the day, again courtesy of the hotel?
Breakfast in room was excellent and we were able to pack and check out in a very leisurely manner as check out was 12 noon.
The Montague on the Gardens is a well located hotel, although the décor is rather traditional (even garish by modern minimalist norms) the room was extremely comfortable, the food was excellent and the courtesy and professionalism of the staff was second to none.
