Firstly, The Montague hosted our wedding reception in November 2011, making our day truly memorable, we organised the whole event in 10 weeks (!) and they made it as smooth and as seamless as possible, the whole team are professional and approachable as they ushered two novices through the whole process! Guests could not praise the reception highly enough, saying it was the best wedding venue/food/atmosphere they'd been too. If you want an intimate, boutique, stylish but not pretentiousness, affordable and accessible venue in the heart of literary London, this is your place!
As the day was such a whirlwind, and because we had been hankering to return since then, we decided to come back for the night to celebrate our 11 years together and our 1 year wedding anniversary. As others have described, from the moment you step in, it is a haven of tranquility from the starkness of London, to the timeless warmth and beauty of the hotel. Check in was smooth and we were greeted like we were the first guests ever to arrive, happy to be there. THEN, we could not believe our ears when they congratulated us on our anniversary and said they were upgrading us to a very special room, none other than the Guv'nor suite! We were just so touched and so excited - even more so when we entered the 2 bedroom apartment! It was amazing!!! And we couldn't believe they had done that for us. They simply didn't have to, but they did. The pictures are accurate, but don't quite do justice to the way in which you will relax in the sanctuary of this suite. But it was not over yet - we returned from dinner to rose petals on the bed, and in the bath, a plate of delicious canapes, Bea's home made cookies, happy anniversary written in chocolate (yum!!!), lip balms on our pillows and a hand written note from the manager. Truly special.
Thus, I can only emphasize what others have said before, and will continue to say again - it is the small touches, the attention to detail, the genuine and authentic way in which the staff engage, the feeling of knowing you are in good hands, without ever feeling intruded upon, that makes this place different. We are both born and brought up in London, but we experienced our time as though we were tourists, which is no mean feat! We relaxed in comfort and style, enjoying our suite, the terrace bar, a scrumptious breakfast, and slept like babies. We not only reminisced on our memories of the year before, but made new ones. Amazing.
As you can tell we loved every minute of our stay - and we look forward to recommending it to others and to revisiting over our coming years together.
So once again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

and p.s in case it needs to be said, yes, they are 'gay friendly' - but more than that they are 'people friendly' - regardless of gender, sexuality, nationality, etc... that is at the heart, as it can and 'should' be, a home from home for us. Ty xxx
