The Montague motto for every aspect of what they do is "no request is too large; no detail is too small." The staff want your stay to be enjoyable and trouble free and will help in any way they can. The aim is to make guests feel as if they had come home. We found during our stay that the staff went out of their way to be helpful and friendly. Be sure to use the services of the head concierge who is one of the best we have encountered in a London hotel. He’s an expert on London knowledge and can make many arrangements for you and provide maps, brochures, etc.
The Montague, in the Bloomsbury area of London, couldn’t be better located for visitors to the British Museum—it’s just down the street. A couple of blocks away there are restaurants, banks, convenience stores, and an underground station.
The Montague’s décor ranges from casual to elegant to modern. All guest rooms have deluxe toiletries and plush bathrobes. TVs and movies on demand are another room feature. Some of the rooms have sitting areas.
The Blue Door Bistro restaurant earned an AA rosette for its cuisine. Breakfasts are served buffet style. Part modern British and part comfort classic, the menu includes vegetarian dishes.
In the summer the Terrace and Wood Deck are open for lunch barbecues, light summer lunches, and afternoon tea. Enjoy meats and fish, including burgers, steaks and tuna cooked on the grill. The Terrace Bar is noted for its cocktails and live evening music. The bar offers snacks as well as drinks, and again the staff go out of their way to accommodate your needs.
Traditional British afternoon tea, overlooking the gardens, is a real treat. Scones, jam, and Devonshire clotted cream are a just reward for a hard day of sightseeing. All food venues are open to both residents and non-residents.
After all the indulgence of afternoon tea you may want a workout in the small gym available on the premises. If it’s pampering you want why not ask the concierge to book you a massage, reflexology, aromatherapy, facial, or manicure right in your room. If you are a daily yoga fan, a complimentary mat is on offer.
Note: The gardens on view at the back of the hotel are not open to hotel guests.
