Charming Boutique HotelPosted Jul 22, 2014
My husband and I just spent five nights at the Montague on the Gardens. We liked everything about it. The reception room, sitting areas, and bar are cozy and posh, with heavy drapes, sparkling chandeliers, and attentive service. Like a slice of a Victorian mansion. Our room and bath were quite large and very comfortable. We had dinner at the Blue Note restaurant in the Montague on the last night when it was rainy and we were tired from a long bus tour. The food was inventive and delicious. My husband particularly liked his large lamb chop. Another night the concierge directed us to a nearby Italian restaurant called something like Latium that we enjoyed. A couple of blocks away is a good Turkish place called Tas. The Montague is around the corner from the British Museum, which is free and fab. It was also not a long walk to Covent Gardens, which was fun for shopping and street performers. My husband has stayed in a number of London hotels for business over the years and said this was his favorite. Give yourself a treat and stay here.

Good location and valuePosted Jun 11, 2014
Well located next to the British Museum and near the tube the Montague was good value for the money. The rooms are small but the bathroom was nice and the bed linens very comfortable.

Very English HotelPosted Jun 5, 2014
Pros: Nice hotel in a nice part of London, very English style with individually styled, sometimes a bit quirky rooms. Nice staff traditional doormen etc
Cons: Only criticism is a bit pricey, including the bar and restaurant but if you can get a deal worth the price for a couple of nights luxury.
Location: Euston Station 10min walk. Across the road from excellent British Museum. Check out the goulish Royal College of Surgeons Museum. nearby both free!
Stayed a night for a treat went to the British Museum and took in a show in the west end.

Gorgeous British Hotel with EXCELLENT ServicePosted Jan 20, 2014 on Hotels.com
This hotel is beautiful and makes you feel like you're actually staying in an Old English hotel as opposed to something sanitized and modern. It's exactly what I was looking for, but what really makes the hotel special is the service of the staff - from the moment you arrive everyone is EXCELLENT. Helpful in every way and incredibly kind. One of the other strong suits of the hotel is that you have everything there - if you never want to leave the hotel you don't have to - there is a wonderful, varied menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner and a lovely bar for late night drinks and snacks. I will definitely stay here again and will recommend it to others.

Pros: The beds, bathroom, bar and staff were all terrific.
Cons: Perhaps the desks in the rooms could be reduced in size to aid movement about the room
Location: Russell Square tube station is a 5 minute walk away. Neal's Yard, Leicester Square and Piccadilly are short walks. British Museum is across the street
Centrally located hotel within an easy walk of many, many sites and restaurants. The rooms themselves are quite small as others have said but they are very comfortable, clean and well appointed. Staff were quick to provide umbrellas, open the door or give advice. We were even given a seating for tea despite the fact we had not booked ahead. We would certainly return on any future trips to London.

Great hotel with outstanding service and locationPosted Dec 17, 2013 on Hotels.com
One would be hard-pressed to find a better hotel in London. This small hotel has a convenient location just around the corner from the British Museum and in the heart of a neighborhood with many academic offices. It is just off Russell Square and convenient to the Metro as well as to the shops on Oxford Street on the other side. The staff is tremendously helpful -- they offered to mail my postcards gratis, helped us find taxis, offered advice on where to go and how to get there. Their complimentary breakfast was a lovely way to start the day. We also had their formal tea which was delightful. The rooms are small by American standards, but honestly, we weren't there but for sleeping. The bathrooms are updated and modern. We had no problems with our room. The only slight negative was there was a lot of sound from the street after the bars close and people make their way home.

We love the hotel and have stayed there many times. The room is tiny, hard to move around or sit comfortably. Neighborhood good, by the museum, but not lose to decent restaurants or breakfast places. We would stay there again.

A great BreakPosted Dec 14, 2013 on Hotels.com
Two day break for my 77th birthday. I couldn't have wished for a better base. The staff were unfailingly friendly & helpful. The location is great; a short stroll from Covent Garden, and & 7Dials. This is my favourite hotel for London visits always welcoming.
