“A perfect weekend getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2013

Beautiful historic hotel with michelin star restaurant. Comfortable friendly in the heart of the New Forest. Part of the Beauleiu Estate. Lord Montague's Palace House and Estate lies across the river from the hotel. Idyllic surroundings and stunning food .Montys restaurant is also an alternative dining experience staffed with friendly helpful staff

We have just spent 2 nights celebrating my parents Diamond wedding anniversary. We had dinner for 15 in a private room on the Friday & a dinner in the restaurant for 8 on the Saturday & stayed in 6 of the rooms. The whole experience was excellent, we were so well looked after, the food was wonderful & the whole experience couldn't have been better. We highly recommend the Montagu Arms.

Room Tip: Maple room is a superior double quiet overlooking the gardens.

A very well run comfortable hotel with friendly efficient staff. The Terrace restaurant was outstanding in respect of it's food quality and service. Every dish worthy of it's Michelin star status...and more. Quality service touches were evident throughout our stay. We look forward to returning.

Staying at the Montagu Arms is what I imagine it’s like visiting an elderly millionaire. It’s an impressive building but the style is rather dated. No matter – for £243 you receive a (Michelin starred) dinner and breakfast, a night’s stay, and entry to the SenSpa down the road, where you can use the pool and so on, though not its more luxurious bits and pieces. And that’s the price for two. As we left, they presented a bag of home-grown apples for the journey, which I thought was a nice touch. Beats the usual eye-watering bill in an envelope.

Stayed one night for business last week, a while since I have been, but just as good as I remembered. Reception upgraded my room on arrival and had a lovely sitting area with a sofa. Bathroom superb and really comfy bed. Coffee delivered to the room next morning was a lovely touch, as was the turn down service the night before. Breakfast very nice with good selection on the buffet, e.g cereals, fruit, pastries etc. and the hot food cooked to order. Staff all v. Helpful, porter came to collect my case from my room as there were a few flights of stairs to negotiate to my room which was probably one of the farthest away from reception, (30), but nice outlook to the Main Street. Porter also went to the upper car park for my car and brought it to the front of the hotel for me, nice touch. Hope I get chance to return soon, thanks!

I booked the Montagu Arms Hotel for my elderly parents to celebrate their joint 80th birthday. My brother and I wanted something special for them and looked at many places (on line). We were very impressed with the reviews and chose it, keeping our fingers crossed.

My parents were overcome with everything, during their two day break. Their room was beautifully clean and welcoming. The evening meals were something my parents had never experienced and they marvelled at the choice of menu and the tastefully prepared cuisine. The garden was very pretty and a joy to walk around.

I had asked the hotel staff to provide specific drinks and cake etc to make my parents' stay more special and the staff did everything (and more).

The whole stay was a magical time for them and they are very keen to return.

Needless to say, I totally recommend this place.

Room Tip: Room 2 is the Superior Suite and totally recommended.

I stayed at The Montagu Arms on 13th and 14th September in the gorgeous Laburnum Suite for my wedding, which was the 14th. The service was friendly and genuine, the breakfast truly set me up for my big day, and the hotel and suite was really the most beautiful backdrop to my 'getting ready' shots in the morning! Highly recommended for any other newly weds, especially if your wedding venue is The Domus over the road! Thank you The Montagu Arms!
