Montcalm, the hotel company, have begun to take London by storm with a total of four hotels scattered around the city. With Shoreditch fast becoming the place to go, it was only natural that Montcalm would have a slice of the action and put a brand new Montcalm hotel in the area.
Opening in 2015, M by Montcalm is the rebellious younger brother of the Montcalm hotels, with a futuristic, stylish look setting it apart from the classic styles of the rest of the Montcalm family. This 18 storey building holds 269 rooms and suites with mood lighting, that can be changed through a tablet along with sound, temperature and the scent in the room. It is packed full of the usual amenities that you would expect in an elegant Montcalm hotel such as plasma televisions and high speed internet, as well as a stunning ensuite with a rain shower and complimentary toiletries from Elemis and Hermès.
Eat & Drink
There are two restaurants in the london hotel; there is Tonic & Remedy which is located on the ground floor and also covers the mezzanine. This restaurant is being fronted by Great British Menu chef Paul Welburn who has concocted his own take on classic dishes such as Smoked Eel and Mackerel, in contrast to the usual jellied eels, wild garlic risotto, Jelly and Seaweed Scones and rump of lamb shoulder shepherd’s pie with greens. This menu has been given the term “refined dining” where the food is classic with a twist. The cocktail bar is being run by Jeremy Pascal who has made a menu to pay homage to Shoreditch’s apothecary history; tipples include Patience & Thyme, which includes the ingredients thyme, gin and smoked egg, and Apothecary which is made of homemade peach butterscotch jam and rosemary. The second restaurant is set to be a more refined affair with an unconfirmed Michelin Star chef at the helm; it will be haute cuisine and will be set against the exquisite London skyline for truly stunning views.
