Reviewed yesterday NEW

The food is OK, nothing to sing from the rooftops about, it is on a par with other local eateries. It is reasonably priced for what it is, and the staff are pleasant. The beers are good and the wine is reasonably priced.

Charming & comfortable, with delicious food and attentive service, the Montagu Arms is an excellent place to stay with timeless grace and well chosen decor. It's also a great place to base yourself to savour the New Forest in general and beautiful Beaulieu in particular.

A beautiful hotel full of character, yet no stuffiness. The staff are friendly and form a well coordinated team. We had lunch at Monty's (by all means look at the menu, but make sure you try the scotch egg, which is exceptional) and then the surprise tasting menu in the Terrace restaurant that evening. We went for the accompanying wine...

We wanted a overnight break not to far away to get away from it all and I was so glad we chose this hotel. Yes it is a quiet time of the year but this didn't matter a bit. From arriving, which we accessed via the beautiful gardens, we were made to feel really welcome. The hotel is lovely and...

Set in the very picturesque village of Beaulieu, the Montagu Arms Hotel deserves the accolade of being one of the finest small hotels in Britain. With beautiful gardens and very comfortable traditional public rooms and restaurant, the hotel exudes an aura of quality and homely welcome. We only had a Cream Tea in passing, but it was excellent and reasonably...

What a great hotel. The building itself is good to look at and ideally situated for viewing the New Forest itself. We only had to step out of the door and we had delightful views all around us. The rooms were exceptional with a separate bathroom and shower room. I'm not sure if every room was the same though. The...

An excellent weekend break. The staff were very friendly and the food was fantastic although the wines were expensive. The evening wine tasting was a great idea and helped choose suitable wines for dinner.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Montagu Arms Hotel offers luxury accommodation in the quaint village of Beaulieu in Heart of the New Forest. The Michelin Starred Terrace Restaurant makes it the venue of choice for indulgently delicious fine dining with a taste of tranquil country life. The 18th Century Hotel is the perfect setting for a romantic getaway, walking holiday or a midweek break; oozing traditional charm with its open brick fireplaces, oak panelling and impressive gardens. The historical village of Beaulieu is just 30 minutes from Southampton Cruise Terminal making us the ideal base both pre and post your cruise. The Terrace Restaurant has held its Michelin Star for 5 years running and pays homage to both tradition and innovation; whilst Head chef Matthew Tomkinson uses the finest seasonal ingredients available to create award winning dishes. We are not ones for passing fads, every ingredient has to deserve its place in our dishes. No gimmicks, Just great food.For a more relaxed meal, Monty’s offers wonderful home-cooked classics or country fare, whilst delectable Afternoon Tea can be served in our conservatory or gardens. ... more   less
