Bloomsbury was developed in the Georgian era as an exclusive residential area for wealthy merchants and aristocrats, and was later to become both the favoured location of the clique of writers and artists immortalised as "the Bloomsbury Group" and the home of London's academia. Even today the area retains much of the atmosphere of its illustrious past, a placid 'village' amid the bustling metropolis that surrounds it.
The townhouse style of the Montague on the Gardens reflects this local ambience, offering a high standard of personal service and attention to detail without extravagent fuss. Among its 104 guest rooms are 11 split-level and deluxe suites which afford the highest level of comfort and convenience, with executive business travel rooms providing the full complement of communication and information technology. Voted London's Best Floral Hotel in 1999, the relaxing air of The Montague on the Gardens has been even further enhanced by the recent addition of a conservatory. A well equipped gym and sauna room are also available to all guests.
Traditional afternoon tea is a daily event, while the Blue Door Bistro offers superb lunchtime selections and à la carte dining. For those who merely wish to absorb Bloomsbury's unique atmosphere, the terrace overlooks a peaceful garden square little changed in 200 years. A short walk through leafy streets to the British Museum, Covent Garden, Fitzrovia and the West End, The Montague is also ideally placed for access to the financial district.
