We stayed in the Ash suite for our wedding anniversary and it was beautiful. The room was lovely with a four poster bed and the adjoining room was nice too. It over looked the beautiful garden where it was idyllic to sit in the sun with a drink. The staff were very friendly and attentive and made sure everything was... More

We had a room at the top with a lovely view of Beaulieu River. The welcome card, water and biscuits were a nice welcoming touch, as was complimentary turn down and morning coffee to the room (although we needed to chase it up) was really nice. However, drinks were extremely expensive and not including breakfast on a £200+ room is... More

Visit was a pick-me-up after a spell in hospital. The building is beautiful and the garden superb. Would have been great for pre-dinner drinks if the downpour had ever stopped. Room 19 was a slight disappointment - billed as 'superior', I wouldn't have liked to stay in a mere standard one! But the bed was comfortable and we didn't spend... More

Lovely Hotel from the time we arrived to the time we departed with water and a couple of apples ( small thing but lovely touch).

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
