The wife and I visited back here and stayed the night. We had our evening reception for our wedding here. Another lovely evening, food was great, room was great and the staff very polite and helpful. The ingredients for the full English breakfast have been sourced locally giving everything great flavour and the portion size was ideal. We've decided to... More

This is a lovely hotel. The staff are so attentive and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Our room was spacious and extremely comfortable with a spotless bathroom. It was also very quiet, even though our room was above the small bar area. We did not try the restaurant as we stayed for only one night & arrived too... More

Beaulieu is a picturesque town in the heart of the New Forest, ideally located for exploring the area; the Montagu is in the centre of Beaulieu. We saw the hotel from the road on a previous trip and immediately knew we wanted to visit on a future trip. The building and grounds are beautiful and the garden is a lovely... More

This is a lovely very old and pretty hotel set in a beautiful part of England. New Forest Ponies wandered the village street and the approach to the hotel. We entered from the upper car park having followed a little path through the pretty garden area. Plenty of outside seating was available and after our welcoming and efficient check in... More

Fantastic food, lovely restaurant, nice place. Nice outside seating area catching the evening sunshine. Best desserts I ever had -salted caramel fondant. We will definitely go back again, but for longer this time.

Went here for anniversary weekend (2 nights) with wife. It's an excellent hotel, can't fault the service or atmosphere if you want a quiet romantic weekend with the wife. We were in a four poster room, which was cosy and nice but the decor is a bit tired for the price range and the carpet had a big stain on... More

A quintessentially English country hotel with a wonderful garden set in a beautiful part of England . As a family of four we did not go to the restaurant as it looked a bit stuffy but the breakfast was absolutely marvellous with freshly baked pastries from a michelin star kitchen and locally sourced produce. Definitely recommended.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Montagu Arms Hotel offers luxury accommodation in the quaint village of Beaulieu in Heart of the New Forest. The Michelin Starred Terrace Restaurant makes it the venue of choice for indulgently delicious fine dining with a taste of tranquil country life. The 18th Century Hotel is the perfect setting for a romantic getaway, walking holiday or a midweek break; oozing traditional charm with its open brick fireplaces, oak panelling and impressive gardens. The historical village of Beaulieu is just 30 minutes from Southampton Cruise Terminal making us the ideal base both pre and post your cruise. The Terrace Restaurant has held its Michelin Star for 5 years running and pays homage to both tradition and innovation; whilst Head chef Matthew Tomkinson uses the finest seasonal ingredients available to create award winning dishes. We are not ones for passing fads, every ingredient has to deserve its place in our dishes. No gimmicks, Just great food.For a more relaxed meal, Monty’s offers wonderful home-cooked classics or country fare, whilst delectable Afternoon Tea can be served in our conservatory or gardens. ... more   less
