Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


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.

Enjoyed Most: The ambiance was wonderful, and the staff exceedingly courteous and going the extra mile to make guests feel welcome.
Other Comments: The location is wonderful--right across the street from the British Museum, very close to convenient public transportation. When we checked in, someone called up to the room a few minutes later to ensure that we had everything we needed and the room was to our satisfaction. The staff at the hotel is excellent.

Enjoyed Most: Hotel with a very british flair and interior, perfect located next to the British Museum. My room was - as the most rooms in London - cosy, but clean and comfortable with a nice street view. Staff was very friendly. The Travelzoo member extra (bottle of champagner) was nicely decorated. Everything was perfect!
Other Comments: More vegan breakfast options like soy milk, soy yoghurts and e. g. vegan cut. Plus: a district guide would have been quite helpful to discover the neighborhood by foot.
