To enjoy the best of London, you should be staying at its best hotel – The Milestone Hotel. This is London's quintessential luxury boutique hotel, a magnificent 19th-century architectural treasure centrally located in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Explore the best of London. All you have to do is step outside the door. There's Kensington to your left, Knightsbridge to your right, and Kensington Gardens directly ahead. The area around The Milestone is a playground for tourists, shoppers, and art lovers. There's history, music, science, London's most exclusive shopping, and plenty of open green space.
Each guest room at The Milestone is a work of art – a grand statement of color and style – dressed with fine fabrics, fresh flowers, antique furnishings, and rare artworks. Each of the 44 deluxe guest rooms, 12 luxury suites, and six long-stay apartments casts its own spell. Some are richly decorated for a more intimate, inward-looking mood; others make the most of their stunning views over Kensington Palace and Gardens. To keep your room looking pristine, the maid visits twice a day. Each time, she leaves a few special treats: home-made cookies, bonbons, tomorrow's weather forecast, chilled mineral water, hand-picked seasonal fruits, complimentary newspapers, delicious canapés, candles in the bathroom – perhaps even a small book of poetry. There's still plenty of discreet 21st-century technology to keep you in touch.
Dining at The Milestone is an event as much as a meal. Wherever you are, Cheneston's with its fine mahogany furniture, the chic Conservatory, or the split-level Stables Bar, there's more than enough time for relaxed conversation and magnificent food. And inspired by the fact that the front door is virtually within Champagne cork popping range of Kensington Gardens, why not enjoy the famous 'picnic in the park.' The Chef, Alexandros Diamantis, and his team make their mark serving a fine international cuisine with an accent on modern British dishes. There's a fine choice of wine too: more than 400 vintages. Passion for fine wines and gourmet food is the driving force behind everything they serve at The Milestone Hotel.
This may be the heart of the city, but The Milestone Hotel has everything you need to maintain your fitness levels. There's a stream of flowing water in the resistance pool, miles of jogging tracks in Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park, a fully equipped gymnasium, and a luxurious spa treatment room. Here you'll find an oasis of central London calm and a superb range of body treatments, beauty therapies, and top-to-toe massages.
