I arrived at The Milestone hotel, after a long walk from South Kensington. I underestimated the walk and I was left feeling quite out of breath. As soon as I arrived at The Milestone, I was greeted by the doorman, and then upon arrival into the reception I was promptly shown into the park lounge. I was seated in a beautiful position, in front of a large painting, which I have tried to capture in the photo I have taken. The décor is honestly what dreams are made of, I honestly cannot fault it.
The Milestone is a member of The Red Carnation group, and I have had afternoon at The Egerton House hotel before which again was lovely, so there is something The Red Carnation group are doing that others are simply missing! Unfortunately I have forgotten all names of the servers, but I could not fault them. The waiter explained the menu to me, I then decided on the Champagne tea, and the champagne was brought out promptly. Firstly the sandwiches and patisseries (shown by the photo) were brought out first, along with the tea. After I was finished with the sandwiches, the scones were then brought out.
I honestly cannot fault the service; nothing was too much hassle for the staff! Every need was seen to, and my tea was topped up as soon as I asked. The bill was around about £50, and what I love about afternoon tea is it gives you a glimpse into some of the finest hotels in the world, without actually staying at the hotel at a higher expense.
The toilet facilities were also beautifully furnished, with hand towels, and handwashes and body lotions. The hotel is in a prime Kensington location, a stone’s throw from the Royal Albert Hall, and within walking distance to South Kensington.
