Entering the hotel feels like stepping into an old movie where whitewashed walls and old English-style streetlights adorn the entrance. The Montague on the Gardens highlights grandeur with royal reds and golden fixtures in the lobby. Guests enjoy the seclusion and ambience of the hotel’s private gardens, or indulge in afternoon tea served in the restaurant. Delicious cocktails are served on the Cigar Terrace, and guests watch the Wood Deck transform into a wintry wonderland during the Christmas season.

Dining

Restaurant
The Blue Door Bistro provides a welcoming and informal bistro-style setting, with a menu to match. Light and airy at lunchtime, warm, cosy and candlelit by evening, the room is decorated on three sides with a panoramic view of London circa 1849: together with the rich mahogany panelled walls, effective use of mirrored glass, and contemporary wrought iron wall lights, an ambience rooted in the hotel's location is beautifully achieved. As any true food lover knows, plain and simple is often the mark of excellence, and with fine ingredients properly prepared, seasoned with the freshest of herbs from Chef's kitchen garden, the Blue Door Bistro exemplifies this principle to delicious effect. With a wide range of vegetarian dishes and salads, commended with it's first AA rosette for it's cuisine, you can rely on good honest food and impeccable service. We also make every effort to avoid using any genetically modified foods and insist on only the freshest of ingredients.

business trip near london covent garden

The Montague on the gardens is an excellent hotel for the business traveller, with very good service, newspaper, breakfast on the room, all equipment available, and the location is close to Holborn/ british museum. Staff is professional and friendly/ service minded. it is one of the top hotels near Russel Square/ British Museum. Availability of Few small things like shoe polish/ perfume in the room, express check out, map with underground lines etc could improve to make the service top.

Awesome hotel!

We really enjoyed our stay here. The hotel staff really went above and beyond to accommodate us and our requests, from the free birthday dessert when we arrived to moving us around when the noise from the street was too noisy for my wife and I.

Family trip to London

The hotel was terrific. The highlights were the attractiveness of the hotel and the exceptional service. The rooms were reasonably sized and the location was good - right next to the British Museum.

Excellent stay

Excellent stay. Small room as is the case in central London, but very comfortable. The Concierge staff was particularly helpful as was all of the staff. Would go back.

Great location, very central for London

Pros: - Lovely staff, always wonderful & helpful. 5 stars! - Great location next to British Museum, 3 tube stops nearby to choose from. - 2 blocks from Tottenham Court Rd for grocery, coffee, restaurants, Maplin (radio shack equiv). - Bed and pillows were very supportive. - Very good heavy blackout curtains so you can sleep when you want. - AC works reasonably well. - Very quiet street and they even have 2 layers of windows, so noise from the street is never the problem. But... Cons: - The floors squeak horribly. If you're not staying on the top floor, you're guaranteed to be woken by people walking and squeaking above you late night and early morning. You're at their mercy. Stayed here for a week, and couldn't sleep-in once. - Rooms are tiny. You just have a little walk space around the bed. It was hard to find a patch of floor big enough just to do push-ups. There was about 1 foot of space between the tip of the toilet and the tub. Joke. - The elevator call button beeps loudly. If your room is anywhere close to the elevator door, you'll constantly think you left something in the microwave. - The gym is a joke. Just ask them if they can get you a temp pass to a real gym nearby. - Even with the 'room service' lights and signs, maids still knock on every door around 8,9ish. This has a chance of waking you up. Lovely location and hotel. More like 3.5 stars for some of the maintenance they really should be doing and lack of a real gym. At this price point, suppose it's okay for NYC or London, but it would't fly anywhere else in the US. Tip#1: Call them ahead for a private car service from the Airport. It's the same $$ as black cab but much better service and it's usually in a new Mercedes sedan. Tip#2: Don't stay anywhere but the top floor. You're floors could still squeak, but you won't be squeaked upon. Tip#3: Ask to arrange a guest pass to a real gym. Tip#4: Russell Square tube stop is super close just across the little park. Recommended, only for 3rd floor stay.

Great location, nice decor

The room was average size based on US standards and nicely furnished. My room was not set up for convenient access to an AC outlet for charging things. The hallway to the room is very narrow and many swinging doors to go through to get to the room. The location is ideal if you want to be centrally located.

Wonderful as Always

This is my third time staying at The Montague on The Gardens. As always the staff were welcoming and friendly. The room was immaculate and this time we got some lovely complementary biscuits. I do think they should include breakfast with the rooms though, i think an additional £20 per person is a little steep when you have already spent £200 on the room. The location of the hotel is brilliant. Walking distance to the Thames, Covent Garden and Soho to name but a few, and the Hotel is located on a quiet street so you get a good nights sleep. What i have found with this hotel is that you can't hear people in the other rooms like you can in some hotels which is great. Overall i love this hotel and will definitely stay here again.

Dining tip: In Hotel

Breakfast in the breakfast room, lunch on the back garden porch, and dinner inside or out was fantastic! After a full day of touring it is wonderful to come home to a fantastic dinner and fantastic staff.
