“excellent hotel”
Reviewed 29 January 2011

I have been coming to London for many years on business and usually stay at 5star hotels. This hotel was probably the best small hotel irrespective of the 4 star rating. The sevice was exceptional from the moment I checked into the hotel. While I was on the hotel computer (no charge) a staff member politely asked me if he could bring me tea or coffee. One morning when I asked for a taxi the doorman ran around the corner when there were none in sight of the hotel. The bar was a great place to relax after a long day. Each night they have a piano player. The batrtender makes a great drink and the bar has a really nice bar menu if you are not in the mood for a big meal. I had a deluxe king room that was large for London standards and extremely nice. This hotel was a real find!.

The Montague on the Gardens is an absolutely wonderful hotel, we would recommend it to anyone visiting London. The hotel is beautifully furnished, elegant, yet cozy, and very clean. The beds are to die for and the staff is very helpful and friendly. The location is wonderful too. The Montegue is centrally located, next to the British Museum, and it is also close to restaurants, music stores, public transportation, the Tube, and Euston train station is just about a 10-15 minute walk away. The adjacent Russell Park is very pretty park to walk through. Great hotel in exciting London!

I stayed at the Montague on a recent trip to London and was thoroughly impressed. The location is great, right across the street from the British Museum and about a ten minute walk from SoHo. The rooms are very clean and each have their own style of decor. They had enough space to stretch out, although were a bit on the smaller side.

The service staff were all really friendly. I ordered the English breakfast for room service two mornings and the food came right when I scheduled it both times. All in all a pleasant stay!

I have now stayed at the Montague on the Gardens on three separate occasions (midweek in October x1 and November x2) for business use and I have purposefully waited before making any review comments to ensure for consistency. Each time the standard of service (in every department) has been excellent. The rooms and bathrooms are always clean and I now always ask the travel organiser to try to book me into the Montague! The location is superb for both walking to and from Euston Station (0.8 miles at a steady pace about 15 – 20 minutes), for my business arrangements and going out in the evening (to Leicester Square and theatre district, about 20 – 25 minutes depending upon theatre etc…). I’m definitely booked in for March and hopefully also for February.

I stay here about 2 or 3 times a month . The welcome is always friendly from all of the staff . It is the service and staff that make this a pleasant place to stay. There seems to be very little staff turnover which is always a good sign. The bar and lounge areas are comfortable and relaxing after the hustle and bustle of London. There are a large variety of rooms , some are quite small but all are well decorated and very clean. It is on a quiet street backing onto elegant gardens - i would very much recommend it.

We have just had a lovely stay at The Montague. The staff couldn't do enough for you and were all polite & friendly. The bedroms are a little small but have everything you need and beds are very comfortable.

We had a couple of issues during our stay which were dealt with efficiently and quickly.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel, it is a little pricey but in this instance you do get what you pay for!

My wife and I spent a wonderful New Years Eve in London and the Montague was an ideal location for this. Very quietly situated next to the British museum, we arrived at 9am and were pleasantly surprised that our upgraded room was ready and we could offload our bags. The museum, a show, the fireworks were all followed by a perfect nights sleep. Im a very light sleeper and this is the first hotel I can genuinely say that I wasn't disturbed one jot. Young, exceptionally attentive staff added to our enjoyment.
