This is a hotel in the middle of nowhere, but the great attraction is their restaurant, The Terrace (1 Michelin *). The hotel itself is also worthwhile, however. It is a 17th-century country house in a forest setting. The rooms have names as well as numbers, and are luxurious. Also, the gardens are lovely! Free parking is in the back.... More

Excellent Hotel, garden behind, peaceful, charming and well decorated. Restaurant next/attached to the hotel has just fresh amazing food for reasonable price. Excellent breakfast, all fresh and quality on buffet. Though room very expensive for what it is really (very good but just a normal room). But you pay for a beautiful place.

We came to Beaulieu to attend a friend's wedding. The hotel staff was very gracious and helpful. The gardens are really lovely to look out onto. The room is comfortable, in a traditional English style but with modern conveniences and comforts. It was a little spendier than our normal budget but it made for a special weekend. The hotel restaurant... More

Beautiful setting across the river from Beaulieu castle. We were there to celebrate a special wedding anniversary and the staff certainly helped to make it special. We were upgraded to a room with a view and made to feel very welcome without it being too fussy. Food in the Michel starred restaurant was exceptional- quite classic but with some inventive... More

Following a very enjoyable stay for my wife's birthday in July 2014 we decided to return this year and booked for three nights. Trying to ring the property is not easy - calls are handled by staff at the sister hotel in Brockenhurst and twice I received no reply when calling there and once when I did finally get through,...

We were looking for a 'mini-moon' hotel in the UK to go to before our actual honeymoon - somewhere that was relaxing, good food and great surroundings. We found all of this in the Montagu Arms Hotel.

We stayed for one night and really liked the location, the gardens (we had great weather!) and the food. The highlight was dinner, which was excellent in terms of the dining room, food and service. Our only reservation was the room, which was quite small (especially the bathroom) and would have been a challenge for a longer stay with more... More

Our visit to the Montagu Arms was sort of a 'bucket list' visit, something we'd always wanted to do - and it was absolutely worth doing! The hotel is beautifully maintained with its character intact, the staff are wonderful, the bedrooms are luxurious in their comfort, and as for the restaurant - the highlight of our visit - it's exceptional....
