We have an eight month old daughter (our first) so overnight stays can be quite daunting. When my in-laws suggested a night in the New Forest, we were apprehensive to say the least. As such, we decided to reduce the risk and stay somewhere nice. After some research and a recommendation from our friends who honeymooned in the hotel 33 years ago, we decided on the Montagu Arms.
We could not have been more pleased. The location is perfect with the surroundings being the epitome of the New Forest; quiet, green and lots of horses! The hotel itself is in excellent order and there is everything you need from a quiet, relaxing bar, lovely gardens and of course the renowned restaurant. We had a junior suite which was very comfortable with a nice, large bathroom, beautiful bed and a flat screen TV.
What really made it though was the service. The lady on the front desk (Sally I believe was her name) was exceptional and made sure our every need was met (she even organised cheese and biscuits to be sent to our room despite the fact it was not on the menu that evening). The chap in the bar let me try some wines before I bought a bottle and the room service people were charming. This made us feel really welcome and meant our stay was very special.
If you fancy a special stay in lovely surroundings you should look no further.
