The Winner of The Gourmet Britain "Hotel of the Year" Award 2012
Find the spectacular Milestone Hotel opposite Kensington Gardens, just a stone's throw away from Knightsbridge's luxury boutiques and department stores. Its central location means it benefits from excellent transport links in and around London, making it ideal for guests wishing to explore the city's top attractions. This imposing Victoria building maintains many of its original features and exudes class and elegance.
Each of its bedrooms and suites are uniquely decorated with antique furniture and rare artworks: guests can choose between rooms which compliment the hotel's sumptuous Victorian architecture or more quirky, modern rooms with stunning views overlooking Kensington Gardens. Special "treats" are bought to the room once a day, anything from homemade cookies to books of poetry, which add a real touch of luxury and comfort to the stay. Although the rooms are designed as havens from the outside world, they still contain an array of discreetly placed modern amenities, including large interactive televisions with movies available on demand. Complimentary internet is available to all guests.
For a real sense of opulence, the hotel's Master Suites are beautifully decorated to resemble Victorian townhouses, complete with a small library area or a billiards table. Some even have Jacuzzis located on their own private balcony. A 24 hour butler service is also available to guests staying in these suites, making them the perfect choice for those wishing to feel totally pampered and indulged.
Children are exceptionally well catered for here, cots and extra beds are available as well as complimentary mini slippers and bathrobes, and a wide selection of children's games and films. Interconnecting rooms are available, perfect for those travelling with several children.
Children can even go on a fun guided tour of the hotel after which they receive a Milestone's Certificate, making their stay feel extra special. The hotel also provides an in-house nanny service, perfect for parents wishing to explore London without the kids.
Guests have complimentary access to the Milestone's large fitness centre, which includes a well equipped gym, a sauna and a lap swimming pool. For a more vigorous workout, guests can hire the hotel's onsite personal trainer for an intensive session.
Milestone's main restaurant, Cheneston's serves modern British dishes with a slight international influence, prepared whenever possible with organic, locally sourced ingredients. The dining hall is sumptuously decorated with dark mahogany furniture and is flooded with natural light from its ornate Victorian style windows.
Guests looking for a quintessentially British experience should go for afternoon tea in the lavish Park Lounge, which is decorated to resemble a traditional English country manor.
Equally traditional in its decor is Stables Bar, which has a cosy, club-like atmosphere and is the perfect location to enjoy a quiet drink.
The hotel can also offer the impressive Windsor Suite, a spacious wood panelled boardroom with a maximum capacity of 50 people - whilst providing an impressive selection of services, including laptop hire and state of the art audio visual technology, making it the ideal location for an important board meeting. An experienced events co coordinator will be on hand to help anyone organizing a business or social event.
