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. Complimentary bottled mineral water, Internet TVs, free Wi-Fi, DVD and CD players are standard, with a library of films and music to choose from.

Suites offer more space, evening canapés and king-size beds. Children are well catered for, with loaner board games, toys and game consoles and kids’ slippers and bathrobes in the bathroom.

The 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 staff, each and everyone of them were polite, friendly and couldn't do enough for you. I even received a card with my champagne signed by all of the staff, plus a birthday message written in chocolate on a plate, such a lovely gesture
Other Comments
Fabulous hotel which far exceeded my expectations. Breakfast fit for a king, plus little extras such as complimentary hot chocolate and chocolate sweets in the lounge area. My husband was instantly handed an umbrella on his way out as it was starting to rain. Very grand hotel but with a homely feel to it.

From being greeted at the door I knew I was going to enjoy my one night stay. All staff were courteous, smiling and professional. The lounge area was welcoming, and the bedroom was comfortable. Not sure if I was upgraded or not.
