“A Mini Downton Abbey”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2014

You will feel like you are visiting the Crawley family's London home when you stay here. The staff is lovely, the decor is Edwardian fantasy, the location--across from Kensington Palace-- is terrific.

We had high expectations and they were still surpassed!! So thankful for staff who treated us so kindly. You must have High Tea here. We will always stay here, no other hotel will be able to live up the The Milestone.

I booked afternoon tea at the Milestone as it was near The Albert Hall which we had been to before the tea.It is a short walk from the RAH with Kensington gardens along the route.

The moment we arrived to the moment we left we were made to feel so very special and as this was a treat for my Mum I could not be happier.

The tea was delicious and the service second to none I look forward to my next visit because I will be going again.

We had the pleasure of spending the New year at the Milestone Hotel and it was amazing. From the minute we pulled up in our cars the staff were terrific; especially with our daughter and our Chocolate Labrador who were treated like VIPs throughout our stay. Our suites were splendid and beautifully decorated with lovely views of Hyde Park and there were treats and pressies for everyone even our dog. The meals were exceptional and afternoon tea a must. You take tea in the cosy lounge which is very relaxing and scrumptious. Nothing was to much trouble and the staff were so polite and helpful. They even bought up some popcorn for my daughter as they knew she was watching an afternoon film :-) . The turn back service in the evening was very thoughtful and a lovely touch. If you are looking for a London hotel that offers location, attentive staff, good food and above all great service, you need look any further. What the hotel claim to provide on their website is just the start of the service they offer. We will be going back soon :-)

Room Tip: We had two suites and they were both beautifully decorated and completely different. They could not...

I doubt any hotel will ever live up to The Milestone! From accommodating late night cravings, to the most wonderful Honeycomb Ice Cream, the staff was consistently attentive to our needs. I would never stay anywhere else when in London.

We loved the Milestone Hotel, amazing location, the staff were so friendly and personable usually I don't like hotel staff because they are a bit stuffy, but these guys had the perfect blend of personality and professionalism. The hotel itself is amazing, every room is different and our was gorgeous. Afternoon tea was brilliant, the pool was great as was the sauna. There is nothing I can suggest to improve it!

Room Tip: I'm not sure a bad room exists in this hotel!

We recently spent a weekend at the Milestone Hotel during the Christmas holiday. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this charming hotel. The staff and service was first rate and the concierge exceptional. The cozy bar was perfect location for before or after dinner drinks and high tea in the drawing room was a truly British experience. Don't miss the chicken pot pie, it is fabulous and real comfort food! We can't wait to return!
