The Montcalm at the Brewery London City: Guest reviews


The Montcalm at the Brewery London City is a luxurious five-star hotel housed in a former brewery close to the capital’s Finsbury Square.

Its unique setting gives the hotel a beautiful charm, thanks to its fusion of original exposed brick interiors with plush modern interiors, which create a lovely ambience for guests visiting the UK capital.


Close to public transport links including Liverpool Street railway station and Moorgate Underground station, the Montcalm at the Brewery is ideally located close to the Barbican and other London attractions, including the Guildhall Art Gallery. And thanks to excellent Tube links nearby, the rest of the city can be reached in a matter of minutes.

We think this hotel offers guests some of the best luxury that London has to offer, but what have our past guests thought?

The Montcalm at the Brewery currently has 1,517 ‘excellent’ reviews on TripAdvisor, and 464 that are rated ‘very good’.

One guest who stayed at the hotel in January 2017 simply stated: “All I can say is wow!”, while another declared: “I have no hesitation in revisiting this hotel.”

Other previous guests have raved about everything from the politeness of the staff to the cleanliness of their rooms, with another stating: “From the minute you walk through the door, the emphasis is on the guest and what the staff can do to make your stay perfect.”

Many visitors have been enthusiastic about the food served in the onsite restaurant, with one recently calling the continental breakfast selection “amazing”.

Local pub The Jugged Hare was also highly recommended by many guests staying more than one night who wanted a change of scenery for some of their meals or for a relaxing drink in the evening. The pub specialises in serving British game, while its classic Sunday roast is famous across London and there are a fine selection of real ales on offer at the bar.

Business travellers

Whether it’s guests’ first or 101st time visiting London, our staff want to make sure a visit to the Montcalm at the Brewery sticks in their minds for a long time to come. We were pleased to receive a review from one visitor for whom we had achieved this, who wrote: “In all the years I’ve visited London, I’ve rarely stayed in such a great hotel as the Montcalm. Great staff, great rooms, wonderful breakfast and a great location. Within walking distance, there are three Tube stations which can bring you in no time to other parts of this mesmerising city.”

Past guests have also been pleased that on the rare occasions they have had issues with a room or with an aspect of our service, that their comments were listened to and their concerns resolved straight away. For example, one reviewer said: “There was a mix up and a short delay on check-in, which was handled well and, as a result, we received an upgrade and complimentary bottle of Prosecco.”

At the Montcalm at the Brewery London City, we value all of our guests and visitors can rest assured that they will be in safe hands during their stay.
