The Montagu Arms is a Wonderful place, it has fabulous gardens but unfortunately it also has very slow service ! We waited a while for our order to be taken and we also got some inaccurate local travel advice but the hotel itself is stunning and very welcoming . A haven in Beaulieu but it could try harder q

We had the pleasure of staying for two nights at this beautiful and historic hotel nestled in the picturesque village of Beaulieu. Everything from the welcome, the room, the excellent and highly professional staff (for whom nothing was too much), the stunning gardens and the simply excellent food was faultless. Located in the heart of the New Forest, you are... More

well, you might think for in excess of £250, the experience would be neigh on perfect, but think again, upon arrival my family and I were greeted pleasantly and told to have a seat in one of the lounges, all is good so far, but this was the proverbial calm before the storm, we were then taken to our table...

A really excellent three course meal. The main course was hot and very well prepared and the desserts were superb. The service was excellent and the atmosphere very good. This restaurant is one of two at the hotel and we would highly recommend it.

On vacation in the UK and wanted to do something special for our wedding anniversary. We were disappointed. The initial room was a small double bed in the attic, overlooking the main road. The bed was small; the room was hot; and the noise from the road prevented us leaving the windows open. The Michelin starred meal was extremely expensive... More

We had our wedding at this beautiful venue in April 2015 but have only just got round to writing a review. We could not have been happier with the service we received from Clara and the team from start to finish. The staff, especially Pierre, worked extremely hard to ensure that the entire day was totally stress free for my... More

We went to The Montague Arms for a meal to celebrate a golden wedding anniversary. The food was first-class and the service was second-to-none. It's a beautiful building with lovely gardens. I would recommend this highly to anyone looking for a venue for a special occasion.
