My husband and I stayed for 1 night for a little break away. Beautiful hotel and excellent service. We stayed in a superior room overlooking the garden and it was a lovely room and very peaceful which was important for us. We also made use of the spa at the sister hotel Carey's Manor, which has really lovely facilities especially... More

The restaurant is fantastic and Pierre looks after you so well to make sure your stay is memorable. However, we stayed at the hotel for one night and felt the decor was old fashioned. The rooms could do with bringing to the same standard as the restaurant.

We wanted a small, traditional location for our wedding. After talking to Clara, the wedding co-ordinator at the venue we decided to book exclusive use and set about organising our day. Our marraige took place in the middle of July; a gorgeous day surrounded by our close friends and family. Clara, Chris and the team were amazing. The beauty of... More

We were on our way through the New Forest and stopped for lunch here. What a paradise. The weather was superb and we had a table in the beautiful garden. The staff were very attentive and the food and wine very good. We are hoping to return and this time stay the night!

We booked the hotel for a special birthday. The room was OK, somewhat careworn and very stained but forgiveable. We had booked the Michelin-starred restaurant as well, and here the trouble started. The staff continually requested that we order and took us to our table 30 minutes before our booking. Our starters, bread and amuse-bouche were fine, but we were... More

Fantastic Service and location! My husband and I live on the Isle of Wight, love our trips to the New Forest and had always wanted to stay here. It was the perfect spot to meet up with my Mum and Step-Father who were visiting from abroad for my birthday; easy, 10 minute drive from the ferry at Lymington, plenty of... More

My wife and I stayed here for her 'special' birthday and we were astounded at how beautiful the hotel is. The staff are very polite and helpful and the gardens are lovely. The food was excellent Our bedroom was very comfortable and we only wish we stayed longer. I can't recommend this hotel enough.

Lovely public rooms and garden with very attentive staff. Very disappointed with room as over kitchen with extractor fan outside window , to be fair it was a hot few days but room very small and air conditioning would have been nice as the smells and noise from the fan not good. Also what about a chair in the room... More

We visited midweek. What a lovely hotel. We were lucky enough to have good weather so were able to make use of the beautiful gardens. Excellent service without being pushy or pretentious. Will definitely return. If your budget allows do try the tasting menu in the restaurant, but go hungry!

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
