The Montague on the Gardens is a stone’s throw from the best London has to offer -- next door to the British Museum with Oxford Street and the West End within walking distance -- but far enough away from the hordes of tourists found in central London.
Set in pretty Bloomsbury, the property is family-friendly with well-thought-out, quiet rooms. Some are quite small, which is typical for such a historical building, but many have lovely garden views. Bottled mineral water, Internet TVs, free Wi-Fi, DVD and CD players are standard, with a library of films and music from which to choose.
Suites offer more space, evening canapés and king size beds. Children won't get bored with loaner board games, toys and game consoles, and they also get kids’ slippers and bathrobes in the bathroom.
The award-winning (AA-Rosette) Blue Door Bistro restaurant serves upscale classics, such as seared sea trout with crushed new potatoes, prawn stroganoff, and a Wagyu beef burger with truffle and Parmesan chips. After dinner, retire to the Cigar Terrace overlooking the gardens, which is reserved for cigar smokers from 5pm onwards in the winter (10pm during the summer).
The real showstopper, however, is the Garden Grill, serving grilled meat, barbecue dishes and Pimm’s cocktails on the secluded terrace in the summer. In the winter, the space is transformed into a themed ski lodge, serving cheese and chocolate fondue, mulled wine and mugs of hot chocolate.
