Meet the Team

The team at The Montague on the Gardens, led by General Manager Dirk Crokaert, is truly passionate about creating unforgettable memories alongside their generous, warm hospitality and their pride in creating thoughtful, unique experiences for our guests.

What really makes The Montague special is the longevity of the team, their passion, warmth and, above all, their enthusiasm to offer excellence each and every day.

As a result, for the past 10 years The Montague has consistently ranked in the top 10 hotels in London on TripAdvisor and has been awarded with several accolades.

At The Montague we like to make things magical and fun for our guests and therefore we have an array of experiences available for different occasions. I would be delighted to organise a table at one of our themed seasonal pop-up experiences ranging from our Beach Bar during the summer to our festive Ski Lodge during the winter.

Alternatively, I can highly recommend one of our various masterclasses, including wine or whiskey tasting, a Champagne Sabrage lesson or, one of our most popular masterclasses, the ‘Mix It’ cocktail making class. Whatever the occasion, it would be my pleasure to tailor it to your needs so that your visit is not just a night out but becomes a treasured memory!

As the Head Concierge I truly love looking after our guests. It is my role to organise your private itinerary whilst you are staying with us, to book you the best seats in the theatre and to get you a table in those very difficult to book restaurants.

I really enjoy the private 45-minute concierge appointments that we offer to our guests, as it allows me to really get to know you and your preferences, so that my team and I can create those all-important memorable London experiences.

My team and I continue to seek out all that London has to offer, from the dazzlingly new to the quintessentially traditional, so we can offer you the very best advice when putting together your itinerary.
If I can be of any assistance to you, please do reach out to me as I love the challenge to make even the most difficult-to-achieve experiences happen!

We have a wealth of different dining options to offer you at The Montague. Many of my dishes are inspired by our President and Founder of Red Carnation Hotels, Mrs Beatrice Tollman, whose philosophy is to offer the very best in delicious comfort food. When designing my menus, I particularly focus on seasonal, sustainable produce that is sourced locally. If you have any special dietary requirements, I will of course be happy to look after this request.

It would also be an absolute pleasure to personalise any menu for your special occasion, such as a themed BBQ in the summer or a specially designed menu in one of our private dining spaces.

If you require a stay in London on business, I am happy to discuss preferential corporate rates that include several great benefits.

In this ever-evolving world it is vital that we offer our guests a selection of unique experiences, which are not readily available to the general public. Due to the strength of the partnerships that we have formed with key institutions here in Bloomsbury, we are able to access exclusive experiences which we can offer you. I would be delighted to discuss these further and to organise one of our exclusive opportunities for you.

When making your reservation at The Montague, please do let us know what your specific room requirements are; if you have a preferred room orientation or layout, for example, I will personally oversee that the best possible room is allocated to you. If you are celebrating a special occasion, I can suggest several options, including a surprise cake, chocolates or flowers, to make the celebration even more memorable. It is my pleasure to take the worry out of planning the details of your visit, ensuring all your preferences are organised prior to your arrival, so that you can relax and enjoy your time with us!
