“perfect for us”
Reviewed 13 September 2009

There really isn't a lot to add. the Montague is well positioned- managing to be quiet but within an easy walk of Covent Garden (10-15 mins) and Leicester Square (15-20 mins) and 5 mins from the tube. The staff are wonderful - service as good as it gets. The place has a lovely atmosphere, although some rooms are bathrooms very small for doubles. Drinks at the bar are pricey, but you would expect that and one evening we wanted to sit in the little conservatory for a pre dinner drink but couldn't because it was reserved for a private party - no big deal. We made a couple of tiny comments about what might have improved our stay on the guests comments card and got a personal response within a couple of days - magic. The only thing I would say is this is quite a grown up hotel so might not suit families with younger kids and feels quite 'posh', if you prefer something a bit more laid back and trendy/ hip it might not be for you, but it was perfect for us.

Stayed August 2009, travelled as a couple

Stayed at this lovely hotel for three days in July. It was terrific. Nice location next to British Museum, close to underground.

Morning breakfast was terrific (go for the full buffet) as was English Tea. Gerhard was wonderful, arranging just the right spots for us each morning.

Rooms are relatively large for this level of hotel. Very clean, well appointed.

We've never been to London but in our many travels have not stayed at a hotel with better service, including the likes of the Four Seasons, Shang-ri-la, etc. This includes the bell staff, front desk, restaurant and concierge. Mustafa, the concierge there, was absolutely terrific. He took care of everything, from dinner reservations to taxis to mailing purchases back to the states to looking in on our teenage kids while we were away at a play.

We are sure to return!

We have just recently arrived back home from our weekend in London. Words cannot express how we felt about this hotel. Apart from the fact, that the rooms and food were
brilliant - the staff - there were no wrods to describe them, they would have bent over backwards for us. We have stayed in many top class hotels in various parts of the world, but the service here beats them all hands down.

We will certainly be returning and soon.

Keep upthe superb work...

Stayed for one night with my mum to celebrate my 40th Birthday.
The staff were very friendly and attentive without being over the top.
Room was very nicely decorated and very clean.
Cooked breakfast was excellent and the location was fabulous. 15 minute walk from Euston station and 15 minutes from Covent Garden.
Will definatley stay again, next time I am in London, but will hopefully have a couple of nights and can take advantage of the outside dining area, overlooking the gardens.

I have now stayed at this hotel over forty times. It is a superb hotel which truly believes that no service is too small. The staff are magnificent and I am always delighted by the very warm welcome which I receive again and again. The food is excellent and the differently decorated bedrooms are enchanting. As an academic I find that the location, next to the British Museum and the University of London, is a treasured bonus!

My partner and I stayed here for two nights, with our two-year-old son, as guests at a friend's wedding. It was an absolutely fantastic break; the room was a pretty modest double but was beautifully decorated and squeaky clean. The housekeeping was excellent, making sure we had everything we might need for our toddler, without our even asking. In fact, all the staff were absolutely brilliant with him, friendly and caring. Food was fantastic, the wedding was great -- one of the best hotels I've stayed in, and would definitely recommend it to families.

Recently stayed at the Montague for six nights in a Bloomsbury King room. The room was large enough by London standards and beautifully decorated. The staff were extremely attentive and could not do enough for us, even calling a series of laundrettes to check they were open on a Sunday to save us from searching the steets with our big bags of dirty clothes.
The location is execellent being right around the corner from the British Museum and within walking distance of Covent Garden and Leicester Square.
I would highly recommend this hotel and would not hesitate to stay here again when I am next in London.
