I have stayed with my partner at this hotel in Vanaltine's Day and was amazing. Since I made the booking I have received a top quality service. Specially thanks to Francesca Derudas (guest experience Host). It was really easy to get my plan done as i have been in touch with her via WhatsApp (they have this service available). My room looked exactly how I wanted and made me feel really comfortable. Thanks to all the staff for an amazing experience. Alberto.B

Such a wonderful stay for our first anniversary, in the very hotel (and room) we shared on our wedding night. I dealt with Alice prior to the stay who luckily remembered our wedding stay from the previous year and upon my request kindly upgraded our 2 night stay from a standard room to a WOW suit, the very room we spent our wedding night. A very special stay from start to finish, bottle of bubbly left in the room on arrival, access to the club lounge for complimentary breakfast in the morning, and wine, spirits and sandwiches 5-8pm. Nothing too much trouble for any of the staff and the whole weekend was as memorable as our wedding stay. We hope to stay here every anniversary but don’t think any will top our first.

We stayed here a couple of years ago and were extremely impressed with the rooms, staff, decor, breakfast in the Jugged Hare, club lounge etc. So impressed, that we booked again for Valentines celebrations February 2018. We checked into the first room and the heating didn't work and nor did the TV. I called downstairs and someone was due to come from maintenance. An hour or so later (I'm freezing and in bed at this point with a dressing gown on) they hadn't arrived so I called again to explain and someone was again on their way in five minutes. Again no one arrived so freezing cold, I went down in my dressing gown and asked for someone to accompany me back to the room. Which they did. Maybe they were just busy but two hours to wait wasn't acceptable ! They managed to get the TV working, you needed to stand in a particular place in the room as presumably the remote control was not working properly. The heating however didn't get sorted so the kind duty Manager moved us to room 255 which was a nice Montcalm Club room. He was extremely polite and very helpful as were all the staff generally. The heating certainly worked and it was a nice room at first view, so we stayed. Later on we found out that we could turn on the TV but the volume controls weren't working so we had to have the TV on so quietly we could hardly hear it and we really couldn't bring ourselves to complain anymore. The internet device in the room (the portable one) wasn't working either (picture below) but luckily we didn't need to use it. The room was tired and in need of decoration and some of the fixtures and fittings in the bathroom were falling off and shelving in the wardrobe. It was just "run down" and not as we had remembered it at all. I've added some photos of the tiling on the bathroom floor and various other broken items. The grout is missing on a lot of the tiles in the bathroom and it's extremely sharp to walk on them barefoot, especially in the middle of the night when it's dark. From the pictures you can see the grout missing and there is a drawer missing in the bathroom, the holder on the wall is falling off as is the soap dish (needs tightening with a screwdriver) and just general wear and tear. We also found out on the first morning that breakfast was no longer served in the Jugged Hare and instead we had breakfast in the club lounge. We were again extremely disappointed with this as instead of the gorgeous cappuccino served in the Jugged Hare and the fantastic array of fresh produce, the club lounge served us Nespresso machine coffee and wouldn't order a normal cappuccino for us and there was a basic choice of food. The breakfast trays were falling apart and it didn't look overly clean and the breakfast was a very poor continental breakfast in choice and quality which was a shame. We have stayed at better 3 and 4 stars and unfortunately won't be returning again.

Come down to London at least once a month on business and usually stay in one of the larger hotel groups but on this occasion was sent to Montcalm Brewery and what a pleasant surprise. From the moment I checked in to moment I checked out a wonderful experience and staff could not have been nicer. Lovely spacious room with all the facilities and techy stuff I needed. Bed was so comfortable and one of the best nights sleep I have had in a while. Will be back!

I really enjoyed my stay at the Montcalm (Brewery/London City). The staff were friendly, gracious, and very helpful. Special shout-out to Francesca, Stanislav, Vlad, and Dayana. They took great care and ensured I was comfortable and that I knew how to get around. My company had recommended this place (and a colleague, a very frequent visitor to our London office, especially recommended it). The property is located in an ideal location, close to Liverpool Street and Moorgate stations, and VERY close to my office, which made things so much easier when the weather became less cooperative than usual. The room was well-appointed, had thoughtful touches (such as nightly turndown service; aromatherapy, a wide array of pillows), and well-lit. No complaints at all, and I'll definitely return on my next trip to London. Very highly recommended!

Montcalm never disappoint. I have stayed in other of their properties and always deliver. To start with the guest experience team is great as they were in contact with me through WhatsApp and found a nice greeting card and mini bottle of wine waiting for me in the room. The room was a bit small but had a very spacious bathroom. The bed was very comfortable, the air con nice and quiet and all in all very cosy. The amenities provided are top notch and plenty. Amazing slippers and all in all a very giving hotel. Wifi was a bit slow at times but apart from this all was great

We really enjoyed the stay and were very impressed by all staff who were always friendly and extremely helpful. They particularly looked after my daughter who was attending her graduation at the Barbican centre which is just across the road. We also really enjoyed the food, drink and ambience in the Jugged Hare. The location is also great for any activity in the city. Thanks again we will definitely return to the Montcalm and would highly recommend this hotel

We stayed at the Montcalm Brewery several weeks ago for my wife's birthday on a Saturday night . i was already quite familiar with the hotel having stayed before myself and have also put overseas guests up there several times as its quite close to my London office. The hotel is very well located being close to the Barbican and close to Moorgate and Liverpool St stations , we drove up and parked the car overnight at the Barbican which was really close. Francesca from guest relations had emailed me prior to check in to ask if we needed any assistance which I thought was a nice touch and I was very impressed when she greeted us at reception upon arrival and asked if my wife was having a nice birthday ...a lovely touch which most London hotels would not do and it was a nice start to our weekend there. Even more gratefully received was the lovely room and the complimentary bottle of wine which Francesca had organised for my wife's birthday , after a long day out in London and with the winter cold and rain howling down outside it was really nice to come back to a luxuriously appointed warm room , stick the TV on and sit back with a nice glass of wine after a drink at the Jugged Hare pub which is part of the hotel. This area of the City is quieter at weekends but we much preferred it to staying more central , its literally 10 mins by tube into theatre land and the west end restaurants and a great place to explore around by foot on a quieter weekend , although the weather wasnt at its best in January when we stayed. All in all a lovely hotel with good value and great staff.

I liked this place. Very good service minded. The rooms are big, quiet, clean.. You got a phone you could borrow if you went out for sightseeing etc.. Only down side is it was little far from the city for me..

Fabulous hotel. Traditional. Doorman to open the door, greet and welcome. Staff in the foyer to take your bags. We arrived early for our room and while waiting to check in, we were offered coffee. The receptionist congratulated us on our anniversary. We left our bags and wandered over to the Barbican tube station (about 5 mins walk) and spent the afternoon in London. When we returned to the hotel, we found a complimentary bottle of wine and a card from the hotel. Towels had been turned into swans and we had rose petals on our bed. It was such a lovely touch. The room was lovely and large. The nespresso machine was fab first thing this morning and it was nice to find a fully stocked mini bar. The hotel claims to be a five-star. It is ... in a very traditional sense of the word where looking after guests is a priority. A hidden gem in the square mile. Will happily recommend. Thank you for making our stay really lovely.
