Each guest room at The Milestone is a work of art – a grand statement of colour and style – adorned with fine fabrics, fresh flowers, antique furnishings, and rare artworks. No two rooms or suites are alike, yet each of the 44 deluxe guest rooms, 12 luxury suites and six long-stay apartments casts its own spell, some with wonderful views overlooking Kensington Palace and Gardens.
Each room is an outstanding example of romantic elegance, comfort and luxury, combining the latest 21st-century technology that one would expect from a mansion property of its calibre with complimentary high-speed wireless internet and interactive TV with movies on demand. You'll find plenty of thoughtful touches such as home-made cookies, chilled mineral water, hand-picked seasonal fruits and complimentary newspapers to name a few.
Their passion for fine wines and gourmet cuisine is the driving force behind everything served at The Milestone Hotel.
Experience fine dining in Cheneston's Restaurant with its rich mahogany furniture; brunch or Afternoon Tea in the chic Conservatory; or a light menu in the unique split-level Stables Bar. And, inspired by the fact that the front door is virtually within Champagne cork-popping range of Kensington Gardens, why not enjoy our famous 'picnic in the park'.
Executive Chef, Alexandros Diamantis and his team make their mark serving fine cuisine with an accent on modern British dishes. They balance their natural creativity with a superb range of traditional comfort foods and, if they have the ingredients to hand (organic and, wherever possible, locally sourced), they'll rustle up exactly what you want – when you want. There's a fine choice of wine too with more than 300 vintages personally selected by the Head Sommelier.
The Milestone Hotel has everything you need to relax and unwind and maintain your fitness levels. There's a stream of flowing water in the resistance pool, a fully equipped exercise studio, and a luxurious spa treatment room offering a superb range of body treatments, beauty therapies, and top-to-toe massages. For those that prefer to get outside then opposite the hotel you'll discover miles of jogging tracks in Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park.
For guests who enjoy a bit more of an intensive fitness regime, The Milestone Hotel offer the services of their highly skilled personal trainer, Andy Elliot. Since 2006 he has been working with private clients in Mayfair, Bulgravia and Knightsbridge as well as the Middle East, Switzerland, Norway, China and the US.
In the heart of fashionable Kensington, The Milestone is London’s most highly regarded luxury boutique hotel, repeatedly topping the rankings at respected review sites and scooping the most coveted awards at hospitality industry events - for which they are rightly very proud.
Splendid views over Kensington Gardens, the city’s most popular attractions are within easy reach yet the wonderful green expanse of Kensington Gardens is directly outside the front door, with Hyde Park, The Serpentine boating lake and the Diana Princess of Wales’ Memorial Playground just beyond. Perfect for letting the kids run wild while you relax with a picnic or a good book.
A short walk from The Milestone Hotel, the Royal Albert Hall is the world’s most famous stage. Its breath-taking auditorium hosts over 370 shows a year by the world’s greatest artists.
Lovers of Royalty adore The Milestone with not one but two Royal Palaces nearby. Kensington Palace, (the former residence of Queen Victoria and more recently Diana, Princess of Wales) directly opposite the hotel’s front door. It is now the London residence of Prince William and Catherine, so you’ll have Royal neighbours. William’s grandmother, the Queen, also has a home nearby - Buckingham Palace is just a couple of minutes away in a taxi.
