Montagu Arms Hotel

Last updated: 26 December, 2023

High-concept design hotels are all very well, but sometimes a roaring log fire, pristine floral drapes and G&Ts in a flower-clad garden are what’s really required.

That’s not to say the Montague is all chintz ‘n’ pearls; the Michelin-starred Terrace restaurant serves up elegant cuisine, the chic, cream Library bar is a great spot for a light lunch, and rooms come with yummy White Company toiletries, fluffy robes and wonderfully comfortable beds.

Spa lovers can book treatments at Carey’s Manor, the Montague’s sister hotel, a short drive away.

Surrounding area

The Montagu Arms is in the picturesque village of Beaulieu, little more than one street lined with traditional old cottages, and the odd gallery and tearoom.

This is a lovely, scenic part of the New Forest, surrounded by pasture, heathlands and forest; deer are common, and wild ponies and horses have been known to wander along the High Street. The Beaulieu Estate – home to the famous Motor Museum, house and gardens, and 13th-century abbey – is a short stroll away.
