Excellent, warm, charming and unique ambience. Great staff. Small rooms, bit pricey, but good location in London.

I chose this hotel as part of a package that included West End theatre tickets. It was to be a birthday treat for my girlfriend and the plan was to surprise her with a marriage proposal. I contacted the hotel in advance and advised them of my plans - I needed everything to be perfect. From the moment we arrived the staff could not have been better. We were upgraded to a king deluxe room which was simply stunning. Five minutes after checking in there was a knock on the door from a member of staff bearing gifts of personalised chocolates, homemade biscuits and a balloon! We went along to watch The Lion King at the Lyceum Theatre that evening, a superb show that i would highly recommend, and then dined at a Covent Garden restaurant. Upon our return to the room we found that (by prior arrangement) our room had been romantically turned down, with rose petals on the bed and tea lights floating in the bath. It was the perfect moment and setting for the big question. In the morning the staff made a real fuss of us when we went down for breakfast and gave us a complimentary glass of champagne to toast our engagement. Breakfast itself was superb, served in the Blue Door Bistro. Checkout was at noon but we were able to leave our luggage at the hotel whilst we spent another day taking in the sights. We collected our luggage at 4pm.
The hotel enjoys a very pleasant location on a quiet street yet within easy walking distance of Russell Square and Holborn Tube Stations. The hotel ended up being the star attraction of the trip. The staff could not have done more for us. It was truly memorable. It's simple, you will not be disappointed if you stay here.

Room Tip: Rooms at the rear overlook the gardens - very pleasant and quiet

I just returned from a four night stay at the Montague and want to add my voice to the chorus of other reviewers singing its praises. I had a lovely single room which, whilst small, had terrific amenities, and I was simply charmed by the hotel's warmth, decor and sense of history.

I enjoyed a divine cream tea in the lobby and a very nice meal at the Blue Door Bistro (the hotel restaurant), and also splurged for breakfast in my room. The service was wonderful accross the board.

The staff couldn't be nicer, as so many other reviewers have noted.

In short, if you want a memorable hotel experience in London, look no further!

We arrived very early morning and our reserved room wasnt ready. For an additional fee we were able to check into a slightly bigger room (Smooth move) Room was quite pleasant and beautifully decorated with great bathroom. We took the tube on the Picadilly Line from terminal 3 Heathrow to Russell Square. Since we only had carry ons it was no trouble at all and faster than a bus or taxi. Had only one day before we went onto India so enjoyed the nearby British Museum and city walks. Luckily we had clear weather. Very nice value , would return to this hotel. NB: Crazy to eat here esp breakfast; there are tons of great places within easy walking distance all around the area.

From the first moment that we entered the lobby, the staff could not have been more polite, friendly and helpful. I stayed with my wife and two boys aged 8 and 11 to "show them the sights" for a few nights over February half term. The manner in which the staff went out of their way to interact with the boys and make them feel special was a delight. The Montague is a gem of a hotel in the heart of Bloomsbury, an area which itself has plenty to offer, as well as being located only a short stroll from the heart of the West End. We could not fault the quality of our rooms or the superb breakfast offerings, while all the communal areas of the hotel have a special ambience, especially the bar area. We found that once settled into a comfy leather settee enjoying a second drink listening to a high quality singer/pianist, it became increasingly hard to leave! Our experience was summed up by the fact that when we checked out on our final morning to visit the British Museum 500 yards down the road, the doorman kindly offered to meet us outside the museum with our cases once we had finished our tour. Need I say more !

Didn't stay at the hotel but attended for a party. We were initially in a room with a good outdoor space available and were provided with drink and some very nice food, which was provided by helpful and friendly staff. We were then shown to a downstairs room for music and dancing which was easily large enough for a good party. The only gripe would be the limited selection of drinks available from the small bar but overall an excellent venue for a party in central London.
