Lovely, beautifully decorated hotel. Wonderful staff from the second that our taxi arrived ! Very comfortable bedding and the best rain shower head in a bathroom that I’ve ever experienced. We had dinner in the hotel restaurant that was very delicious and the continental breakfast we had in the morning was quite lovely. Our room overlooked the gardens and was very quiet.

Hotel's Favorite
I have stayed at The Montague on the Gardens four times, and can confidently say I will be there again in April. This has become “my hotel”in London is for many reasons. The staff are welcoming and attentive, with a level of service typical of other Red Carnation Hotels in London , but the Montague has that special friendliness that’s difficult to describe. As a solo or with my husband, my experiences have always been positive. The public rooms are varied and offer several places to sit and have conversations, read, or enjoy tea or a drink. My favourite is The Leopard Bar. I am particularly happy to see the work done on the garden room during the past quiet times, and look forward to having afternoon tea there in the spring. Whether you are speaking with a concierge, housekeeping, restaurant , or bar staff, anything you require help with is met with enthusiasm and efficiency. The area is excellent as it is close to so much ; The British Museum is around the corner. My favourite pastime while there is strolling through Russell Square , which is at the end of Montague Street. Each room I have stayed in has had a different decor, always beautiful, and super comfortable. All have been quiet, whether facing the street or the gardens. Make this “your hotel” in London. You will not be disappointed.

Our stay at The Montague was excellent. We were unsure if we would like the location but it was great! The location was quiet and convenient to both the Tube and buses. It is also located right across the street from the British Museum, a must see site in London. The service and staff at the hotel were by far the best we had during our 3 week trip in the UK and made our stay so much more enjoyable. We had drinks and dinner in the Leopard Bar and it was a highlight of our stay. The bar had a wonderful singer the night we were there (I believe they have entertainment each evening) and the cocktail menu was extensive and wonderful. We had dinner in the Conservatory next to the lounge which overlooks a secret garden. The dinner menu was original and the food excellent. Staff were attentive, providing an excellent level of service. The hotel rooms are not huge by US standards but this hotel is in a classic Georgian architecture building. The rooms are air conditioned and the bed and pillows at The Montague were the best we had on our entire trip. A good night's rest helps for a fun trip. The turn down service was a nice touch - loved the little nighttime sweets left each night. I cannot say enough about the hospitality provided by all levels of The Montague staff. They fully understand the meaning of customer service. We will definitely stay at The Montague on the Gardens again -- it truly is a London hidden gem! Karen and Philip Webb USA

I lived in London for twenty years and now travel back a lot for work. I have stayed in a lot of hotels and The Montague beats all of them, on every front, hands down. Brilliant central location and meticulously-maintained outside. Inside, you're greeted straight away and the staff are so helpful and polite. I booked a single room but it was honestly bigger and more comfortable than some doubles I've stayed in elsewhere. It was decorated beautifully and the attention to detail second to none. I ordered room service for a late-night dinner and breakfast and the food was prompt and delicious. I felt so comfortable here as a woman travelling/staying alone. There was even quite loud construction work going on (either right outside my window - there was scaffolding - or on the roof), which I hadn't been warned about, but it still didn't put a dampener on my visit! I was working in my room before checking out and it probably would have been a problem had I need to do a zoom/calls, but thankfully I was just writing, so could put my headphones in! It would probably be good to warn guests, in case they needed somewhere more quiet. But really, a tiny quibble. I cannot wait to come back!

We had a wonderful time staying at the Montague. The hotel is beautiful but what made the stay so remarkable was the staff, who made us all feel special during our stay. When we return to London, we’ll certainly be staying at The Montague again.

The hotel was wonderful. The quality of the room and the service was excellent. But the staff were amazing! I want to especially call out Mustafa El'Omari, the Head Concierge. I lost a filling and it was a Sunday. When I explained my situation, he located a local dentist, made me an appointment and literally walked me down the street to their office so I wouldn't get lost. He definitely went above and beyond what I would have expected! Thanks to him, a dental emergency was averted.

We left feedback on the sheet that was given to us at the hotel, although I would again like to point out the great service provided by Lucia in the restaurant, during the breakfast service. She was so friendly, helpful and gave us excellent advice about what to do and where to go (Borough Market), particularly in light of the Notting Hill carnival which she advised us to avoid. Also, when it came to our breakfast itself, nothing was too much trouble. Our room was exactly as requested with a garden view and walk-in shower. The bed was so comfortable, one of the best, if not the best, we have ever slept on in a hotel. We had afternoon tea on the day we arrived, which was lovely and made us feel very special. A good selection of vegetarian sandwiches, plus heavenly scones with the usual jam and clotted cream and lovely cakes as well. This was our second stay at The Montagu and we will definitely return. It's perfect for a visit to the British Museum, literally 5 minutes walk to the main entrance.

Greetings. My family owns a large hotel in the South of England; consequently, I know quality in operations and interpersonal relations with the customers when I see it. The Montague on the Gardens is excellent in ticking all the boxes: location, cleanliness, attention-to-detail, eating and drinking amenities, and last, but not least, giving a true "damn" (sorry for the explicitness but very apt) for the customer. Messrs. Crokaert and Anderson, General Mgr. and Deputy, along with the entire staff, are caring professionals who prize service and the customer's wellbeing. I recently had a one-week stay at the Montague, and plan to return soon.

This was my 6th visit to London. Previously I've stayed east or west, never central, but the nature of my trip this time required a central location. I was feeling hesitant about having a smaller space and possibly noisier location, but none of that turned out to be an issue here. Yes, the room was small as one might expect in Central London, but it was arranged in such a way that all the space was used cleverly and the room was very comfortable. My stay was 2 weeks, and I never felt cramped. Bloomsbury is really a gem of an area - short walk to so many attractions and restaurants. I've never used the tube less on a visit to London, but it's also a relatively quiet area. Noise or crowds were never an issue during my entire 2 week stay. Finally, the service was really impeccable. On my last visit I stayed at a trendy East London hotel that was just...disappointing to say the least. The service there was so indifferent as to be almost non-existent. Not so at The Montague - every single staff member was friendly and helpful. The nearby Kimpton Fitzroy has a really dazzling lobby, but I I'll be returning to The Montague next time for sure!
