I would urge anyone looking for a restful,enriching and invigorating break to book a few nights at The Montague Arms Hotel in Beaulieu which is right in the centre of the beautiful New Forst in Hampshire.
The hotel is small but it is run as if it were a large luxury hotel. Everyone of the staff,from front desk to restaurant to bar,are THE MOST charming,friendly and helpful and the manager,Sunil Kanjanghat,is always available to chat to you or help you with any issues during your stay,not that there are many because the hotel is pretty well perfect!!
In the winter,sit in the warmly welcoming lounge with it's glowing wood fire or conservatory with it's bright outlook onto the garden. In the summer,do the same,as both are also cool and fresh in the warm weather or sit in the picturesque flowered garden.
A weekend sojourn is nothing without good food and you can be sure you will have that. Breakfast will satisfy the largest,healthiest appetite with an array of cereals,fruits,jams as well as beautifully cooked hot food,mostly sourced locally. Lunch and dinner is 5*,professionally and expertly cooked by the Michelin chef,MatthewTomkinson,beautifully presented and served with the charm and light touch of the restaurant staff.
The hotel lacks nothing. It has the mark and aura of a 5* residence but retains it's informal,homely and warm ambience. It is rather like a 2nd home.
