Constructed in the late 19th century as private dwellings, the two houses which today comprise The Milestone recently underwent total restoration in order to create a landmark hotel of real character and the highest standard of service.
Careful attention has been paid to preserving the architectural features and period detail of the original structure, fully encapsulating the charm of an elegant Victorian London residence while providing all the conveniences of modern existence. All of the guest rooms, many overlooking the park, are fully air-conditioned and incorporate two direct-line telephones, private fax facilities, satellite TV/VCR, and DVD player. Same-day laundry, 24 hour room service, and valet parking are also available. The split level suites feature a four poster bed on the lower level, with the upper level set aside for private meals or relaxation while enjoying magnificent panoramic views over Kensington Gardens. Formal dining is in Cheneston's restaurant, offering an international menu with an emphasis on modern European cuisine, with Stables Bar (the former carriage house) a convivial setting in which to meet friends and sample an exclusive collection of early vintages of cognac and armagnac. Light meals or quiet relaxation can be enjoyed in the conservatory: the Windsor Suite is a discreet location for private functions. A fully-equipped health and fitness centre is available for the use of guests.
By the Royal Albert Hall in one of London's most coveted locations, The Milestone enjoys easy access to both the West End and City.
