We had a two day break between Christmas and New Year and we couldn't have made a better choice. We had a luxury room with a truly enormous and very comfortable bed, bathrobes, and slippers, complimentary fruit and biscuits, and a very pretty Xmas tree. The room although at the front of the hotel was beautifully quiet. Our package included a visit to the Ski Lodge and a festive tea; the Ski Lodge was great fun, decked out just like an Alpine ski lodge with snowmen, Rudolph the reindeer and even a flurry of snow! We tasted various vodkas, together with a platter of really nice snacks. The tea was exceptional, sandwiches, scones and so many cakes that we had to have them boxed for the next day; also a great choice of brands of tea, including peppermint and herbal varieties.
One surprise benefit was that the hotel has a humidor and a cigar lounge and terrace (my husband is a smoker and is usually relegated to do this somewhere behind the dustbins in a dirty alleyway). His greatest pleasure was to take a glass of port and a cigarette on the very pleasant terrace at the end of the evening - not something readily available in most hotels.
We were going to the theatre in Drury Lane which is very convenient to the hotel; about ten minutes walk away, as is a good Chinese restaurant, Shanghai Blues.
We had a wonderful relaxing break and the service at all times was first class. Nothing was too much trouble and everybody had a smile for you; we shall certainly visit again.
Room 46; at the front of the hotel but very quiet.

Thank you for taking the time to share your lovely feedback regarding your recent stay with us.
I was delighted to read that you had a wonderful and relaxing break. I was so pleased to read that you also enjoyed our facilities including the Ski Lodge, afternoon tea and the Cigar Terrace. Here at the Montague we like to make our guests feel as comfortable as possible, so I am thrilled that your husband was able to enjoy his port and cigarette in comfort.
I hope that we will have the opportunity of welcoming you back to the hotel in the near future.
