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.

The service was outstanding in every regard. Every staff member was friendly and eager to help in a pleasant, yet not obsequious way.

Beautiful hotel with tremendous attention to detail. The guest rooms were beautifully appointed, with every desired amenity. Complimentary water and cookies were there on arrival, towels were plush, bathrooms beautiful with lovely toiletries. Rooms were equipped with irons , hair dryers and safes large enough to hold laptops and other valuables. There were even office supplies in the desks and sufficient outlets to charge all our devices. The public spaces of the hotel were beautiful and there were many places to relax and refresh. The buffet breakfast was outstanding accompanied by excellent service. There was a nice selection of hot items and eggs and omelettes to order were offered and perfectly prepared. There was a cold buffet as well with fresh fruit, yogurt, cereals, cheese, fresh juices and anything else one may want for breakfast. Our only complaint was that our rooms was a little small. Other than that, a perfect stay in a perfect location. The hotel is a short walk to several tube stations and we took the tube from Heathrow to Russel Street station without a transfer and walked less than five minutes to the hotel. Could not be more convenient.

Breakfast was good
Other Comments
Upon check in the staff were unaware of the travelzoo deal which resulted in us having to explain what the extras were. This also resulted in a massive confusion over the late check out and a 45 minute wait for the champagne arriving to our room. Obviously I was looking forward to arriving to the champagne in the room but instead we first had to make multiple phone calls until the general manager finally resolved it. Aside from that, breakfast was great but very noisy/creaky floorboards in the room above us all evening.

The staff and service at The Montague is wonderful. Everyone takes the time and effort to make certain your stay is the best it can be.
Other Comments
Though the rooms tend to be “compact” and amply filled with furniture, they are comfortable and make one feel like a guest in a beautiful English manor house. The staff is superb and he location excellent, as it is convenient to Convent Garden, Soho, Shaftesbury Avenue and Bloomsbury, as well as the Russell Square & Holborn underground and Euston, Kings Cross & St. Pancras rail stations.
