Comprised of three Victorian townhouses that overlook Kensington Gardens, the Milestone Hotel is quintessentially English in its style and sumptuously indulgent. The five-star rated hotel sits between High Street Kensington tube station and the Royal Albert Hall, whilst Hyde Park, the Science Museum and the Natural History Museum are all a short walk away. As part of the luxury Red Carnation Hotels brand, the Milestone has a 24-hour butler service and exudes charm and sophistication.
Featuring antique furniture and taking inspiration from Royal dwellings, each one of the rooms, suites and apartments are uniquely decorated and designed to indulge and soothe. Rooms and suites are extremely well appointed with interactive televisions with on-demand movies, DVD and CD players, iPod docking stations, complimentary Wi-Fi and a mini bar. In addition, guests are greeted with fresh fruit and flowers on arrival.
There are 44 rooms and 12 suites and they are categorised as Superior Queen, Deluxe King/Twin, Deluxe Studio, Junior Suite and Master Suite. Deluxe rooms offer slightly more space, whilst many of the Deluxe Studios have a seating area. All have en-suite bathrooms with complimentary luxury brand bath products. Guests of the Master Suites benefit from additional amenities, including a chauffeur-driven Bentley and nightly complimentary canapés.
