I booked our 2-night stay before the change of ownership in July and I admit that I did become a bit concerned after reading some TripAdvisor reviews before staying there.
But, I needn’t have worried at all as we thoroughly enjoyed “The Dragon” experience. It’s a very relaxed and informal atmosphere. We were made to feel very welcome by all the staff.
We enjoyed excellent evening meals on both nights, plus tasty cooked breakfasts (they use locally sourced produce in all their meals, which is what we like to see). Bar prices for drinks are reasonable too.
ROOM 5 (twin beds) at the front of the hotel overlooking the Town Hall was spacious, comfy and quiet during our weekend stay. The Town Hall clock doesn’t chime through the night, thankfully. Room 5 has a good-sized en-suite bath/shower room, but the shower wasn’t all that powerful (low water pressure?).
The new owners have ambitious plans to “improve” the hotel, and we’ve said that we’ll go back there in a year or two to see what’s changed, as Montgomery is such a lovely historic town.
YES, we will return.
