The Montagu Arms Hotel is a retreat of great character, surrounded by the glorious scenery of the New Forest. It is ideal for a quiet break, as well as small events, and is located minutes away from the famous National Motor Museum, Exbury Gardens and Bucklers Hard.

Alternatively, if you simply want to relax and pamper yourself, the Montagu Arms offers all its guests complimentary membership to an exclusive health club six miles away, where you can enjoy the benefits of the gymnasium, spa and beauty therapist.

Each of the Hotel’s 22 bedrooms has been individually decorated, and many of them have that magical touch: a four-poster bed. Choose from sumptuous suites, luxurious junior suites, superior and standard accommodation.

Our award-winning Michelin Starred & three AA Rosetted Terrace Restaurant, with its views across the beautiful terraced gardens, is an enchanting setting for all occasions. The quality and presentation of the food is a matter of great pride to our dedicated team of chefs, lead by our award-winning Roux scholar Matthew Tomkinson, and dining with us will leave you with fond gastronomic memories.
