With a history dating back to 1742, the traditional English character of this country house hotel is reflected through its roaring open fires, large cosy sofas, beautiful oak paneling, individually designed bedrooms and suites, all of which combine to create a truly homely atmosphere. A rural retreat with food at its heart. Quintessentially English yet perfectly individual. 

Effortlessly intuitive service combines with a unique character and charm to create a time and space that are just for you. In 2019, the Montagu Arms received a 4 red star award at AA Hotel Awards. Red stars (as opposed to black stars) is an accolade for the most outstanding hotels in the UK, offering excellent levels of quality throughout, outstanding levels of hospitality and service.⠀⠀

NEW for 2022 - Rooted in tradition, each of the 9 new Courtyard studios and suites seamlessly blend timeless elegance with contemporary elements. Residing around a central courtyard garden, outside and inside flow together to create a harmonious layout connecting the natural surroundings of the outdoors with timeless interior design inspired by the flora and fauna of the national park.These are spaces designed for peace, socialising and beauty, providing privacy for a family, a break from the frantic pace of everyday life, and a relaxing place to unwind.

The Terrace Restaurant has three AA Rosettes and is run by Executive Chef, Nathan Eades. Having trained in French classical cooking, his style is modern and refined using the best of the New Forest and the hotel’s home-grown produce to create dishes that take local provenance really seriously. His menus see British home comforts reimagined in elevated and exciting ways, providing modern and refined yet unpretentious dishes championing seasonality and hyper local Hampshire ingredients.

Since the 16th Century there has always been an inn on the site of the Montagu Arms. Originally a meeting place for farmers, timber traders and parish officers the inn, now known as Monty’s Inn, is very much at the heart of Beaulieu. Country fare using fresh, local and organic ingredients and classic English favourites combine with award winning fine hand pulled local ales to provide the cosy country pub atmosphere that Monty’s has become renowned for with locals and visitors alike. Take advantage of the Inn’s ideal location and enjoy something a little more laid back to retire to after your exploration of the beautiful New Forest.

Afternoon tea at The Montagu Arms is a ritual not to be missed. Guests are served a mouth-watering selection of finely cut sandwiches, speciality cakes (including fresh baked scones smothered in New forest Jam and thick clotted cream) all complimented by a selection of fair trade loose leaf teas and coffee.

For extra pampering, guests at The Montagu Arms have preferential rates at the state of the art Thai SenSpa, located just six miles across the beautiful New Forest at sister hotel Careys Manor. SenSpa offers a hydrotherapy pool, herbal sauna, crystal steam room, ice room, and experience showers, relaxation rooms, with a full range of treatments including facials, massage, body scrubs, body wraps and more.
