The Montagu Arms Hotel

The Montagu Arms Hotel provides a wonderful retreat, a place of serenity from the hustle and bustle, a great base to explore the beautiful New Forest and an indulgent treat for you and your loved ones.

What is the secret of the quintessential English country house experience? We think we know – opulent, comfortable, intuitive surroundings, roaring fires during the winter, direct access to our gardens during spring, fabulous food and drink year-round. 

Visitors arrive to oak panelling, polished, herringbone parquet and the tick of a longcase clock. While away a half hour with coffee and the papers in our Victorian-style Magnolia Lounge or take tea in the conservatory overlooking the garden.

The Terrace restaurant offers an unparalleled dining experience at the heart of the hotel. Expect richly comforting dishes fused with delicate touches of innovation and exciting range of flavours, textures and aromas; food you will definitely want to linger over. 

Or nip around to Monty’s Inn for less formal dining or to enjoy a swift half or two. Country fare using fresh local ingredients and classic English favourites combine with hand-pulled ales to provide the cosy country pub atmosphere that Monty's has become famous for

Upstairs we have 22 en-suite bedrooms and outside in our rennovated barn are 2 duplex suites overlooking the garden as well as 9 courtyard rooms. Each room is different, some include four-poster beds, and every one is designed to make you feel completely at home. 

Outside is just as restful. Take a turn about our Gertrude Jekyll-inspired gardens, listen to the pond fountain designed by Giuseppe Lund, play a game of croquet on the upper terrace or take a look at our kitchen garden. 

Don’t be surprised if you walk out of our front door to be greeted by a line of ponies or donkeys – this is the New Forest and the gentle beasts roam where they will! Across the way is Beaulieu’s magnificent Palace House and the National Motor Museum. The world-class Exbury Gardens (a favourite with Her Majesty the Queen) are a short drive away, as is the ancient village of Buckler’s Hard and the New Forest’s beautiful ‘secret’ coast - gateway to the challenging sailing waters of the Solent.

If you fancy a swim or gym session, or a massage, treatment, then let us know and we’ll arrange for you to be welcomed at SenSpa, our multi award-winning day spa at our sister hotel, Careys Manor, in the nearby village of Brockenhurst.
