I've written about The Milestone a few times before but I feel compelled to be effusive again. This is a quintessential London hotel right in the heart of Kensington. Your neighbors across the street at Kensington Palace are Will and Kate! I travel all over the world on business and The Milestone is my favorite hotel in the world. Location,... More

On our first trip to London, we tried to get reservations at the more well-known tea places, but were unable to land a spot; so, we booked The Milestone for Afternoon Tea instead. Tea was served in a small charming room with a few tables, sofas and chairs off the lobby. The service was excellent, with a nice selection of... More

If you want a large modern hotel, this is not the place for you. If you want big and modenrn go to the Shangri La Hotel at the Shard. However, if you want a quintessential small English inn experience, this is the place. I felt like Bono at the Milestone - total rockstar treatment. My only regret is that our... More

It's a nice old English hotel and the people are nice. But the cost is way too high for the experience. Nothing wrong except it's not the 5 star that it costs. This is definately not the best or close to the best in London. Sorry but it nice but over sold. Booked 3 nights for something special but we... More

I chose to stay at the Milestone for my last night in London. I picked the hotel because it was close to Paddington and the restaurant I wanted to dine at (Petrus). From the minute you walk in, you feel a warm welcome. I had stayed at another Red Carnation hotel (the Oyster Box in Durban) and had the same... More

Over the top service, quintessentially British boutique hotel. Beautiful room, sublimely comfortable bed, unbelievable buffet breakfast. We enjoyed the hotel's private airport car service---definitely take advantage of that. We were traveling with our 12 year old granddaughter, and really appreciated the bedroom with separate private sleeping area for her, and the most delicious chocolate birthday cake they delivered to our...

We have traveled world wide and have found the Milestone to be, by far, the most exquisite boutique hotel in our experience. The property is well located with views of Kensington Palace and across the street from Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens with lots of fun play areas for children. Each guest room is unique and tastefully decorated. But what... More
