We have stayed at this Hotel many times over the years as it is very handy for the National Motor Museum where we attend several functions during the year. The Hotel has excellent car parking which is important for us and is generally maintained to a good traditional standard even if a little expensive for what it is. The welcome was good this time and the front of House staff were friendly and efficient.
The rooms tend to be on the small side for the price but to be fair this time we got an upgrade as returning guests (nice to sse they reward loyalty !) and our room was a good size and with comfortable furnishings. This was let down by a poor "turn down" service on both evenings, in fact on the 2nd night the room looked more dishevelled when we returned from Dinner than when we left it (strange!!!!). Towels placed in the bath (traditional way of saying you want them changed) had just been taken out and hung loosely at the edge of the towl rail and nothing had been tidied up just the bed hapharzardly turned back.
Breakfast next morning was excellent, freshly cooked and well served.
The propert has well tended gardens and the new vegetable & herb gardens are a tribute to the full time Gardener
.Spa & Fitness centre facilities are available at a sister Hotel (Careys Manor) a few miles away.
This Hotel is better than it was last year but there is still room for improvement at the price.

Room Tip: Go for higher than a basic level as they are small

Everything about the Montagu Arms is lovely, the building, the staff and service, the rooms, the gardens - eating in the restaurant is a wonderful experience although Monty's is also extremely good. I can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: A room with garden views is best

We spent two nights in the Montagu Arms in July.
Good things about our stay?
Room was nice and tidy and the delivery of freshly made coffee and tea each morning was lovely.

Nice fresh breakfast cooked on request.

We ate in Montys Inn next door and had a great feed there both nights.
Staff were friendly and checkin and checkout was very smooth.

The downside of our stay?
We had aircon vents outside the window which meant we couldnt sleep with the windows open so it got quite stuffy inside. (with the windows closed it was quiet)

Being on the end we found the noise of the kitchens quite loud and irritating. Lots of clanking of pots and yelling late into the night.

Unfortunately we couldnt eat in the hotel restaurant as it was fully booked on the Sunday and closed on the Monday. We had thought that there would be room for guests to eat there on the night it was open but it wasnt to be.

My girlfriend and I had a weekend break in the New Forest and stayed in the Montagu Arms and we enjoyed everything about it. The staff we very friendly and helpful, the room was excellent and the food was out of this world. I have to do a lot of travelling with my work and I have to say it is definitely one of the best hotels I've stayed in in terms of the service and helpfulness of the staff. I would recommend it to anyone.
