“Lovely lovely time at the Montague”
Reviewed October 10, 2011

My husband and I were doing a tour of Europe, 8-29 - 9-11-11.. our first stop was 3 nites at the Montague... it was wonderful, do NOT miss the Cream Tea in the afternoon, it was the best tea I have ever had in my life, and my mom was Irish and tea was the drink in our house. The rooms was small as many say, but after going to London, Paris, Rome and Venice most of the rooms are small in these countries because these are beautiful, old buildings... renovated to a very modern style, with all the amenities but with character.. We upgraded to a king bed and enjoyed ourselves very much, all staff was kind, helpful and fun.. it was my first trip to Europe and loved the Montague, I'd go back in second.. okay a nanosecond. if you get the opportunity, it's a wonderful, classy hotel.

Room Tip: upgrade to a larger bed and your room will be a bigger.

We stayed five nights in London at the Montague and had a wonderful time. The room was on the smaller side, but not a surprise for London. We were most impressed by the friendliness and knowledge of the staff, especially when we were sorting out the tube or booking theater or sightseeing trips. The morning breakfast was a welcome start and even though we never saw porridge on the menu, they faithfully brought us some anyway! The location near the Russell Park tube stop and Covent Gardens was a huge bonus as our street by the British Museum was quiet but central to all of our destinations.

Dear Guest

I was delighted to read that we were able to assist you with organising transportation, theatre and sightseeing arrangements. I was equally glad to hear that we were able to provide you with porridge each morning even though it is not featured on our main breakfast menu.

I hope that we will see you again soon at The Montague.

What a great place. Warm and inviting with perfect service, small but beautiful rooms, and superb breakfast and food. It will be a regular stop in London.

Room Tip: Choose a room overlooking the rear garden.

I concur wholeheartedly with the positive comments about the lovely staff at this hotel. The room I had was comically small (typical for London, so that's not a set-down) and fabulously plush, with a window overlooking the interior garden. The bathroom was deluxe with excellent water pressure and deliciously hot water. Every convenience had been thought of, including a variety of electrical outlets (european, UK, american), ironing board, in-room coffee and tea, and easy-to-access internet. I look forward to another trip to London so I can stay here again!

having been in london to combine business and leisure i chose the montague based on the good ratings - and it was a great choice!

the staff is extremely friendly and helpful, the room we had was very clean and not as tiny as you might be expecting based on the experience from other hotels in (downtown) london.
the gym is not very big but in case you are looking for a cardio workout, it´s perfect as it is equipped with 3 excellent state of the art cardio machines (treadmill, cross-trainer, bike) (they all have a TV screen)
