Sustainability Efforts

Romance

The Milestone has catered to the romantic for many years and, as such, can ensure that each moment you spend here flows naturally and beautifully into the next, as if by magic. Its discreetly hospitable staff will take care of everything from Romantic Turndowns and midnight feasts, to handmade picnics in Kensington Park. Many couples have been so enthralled by the magnificent nature of their stay that they have decided to hold their wedding at The Milestone. With an events coordinator at your beck and call, the day you celebrate your love is sure to have the beautifully ambient atmosphere you’ve dreamt of. The Hotel is also licenced to hold weddings in the Oratory, the original chapel of the building.

It's hard to imagine a more romantic setting in which to enjoy a special celebration. Opposite Kensington Palace and Gardens, home to Prince William and The Duchess of Cambridge, and recently married Prince Harry and Meghan Markle; romance is certainly in the air.

Your Stay

Each guest room at The Milestone is a work of art – a grand statement of colour and style – adorned with fine fabrics, fresh flowers, antique furnishings, and rare artworks. No two rooms or suites are alike, yet each of our 43 deluxe guest rooms, 13 luxury suites and six long-stay residences casts its own spell, some with wonderful views overlooking Kensington Palace and Gardens.

Our flexible rooms, suites and residences are perfect for families and groups staying together. Interconnecting rooms sleeping up to 10 people can be created, combining the Club Suite, a Studio Suite and two deluxe bedrooms over two floors creating one large space together. Other options are also available.

Each room is an outstanding example of romantic elegance, comfort, and luxury, and yet each combines the latest 21st-century technology that one would expect from a mansion property of its calibre - with complimentary high-speed wireless internet and interactive TV with movies on demand. You'll find plenty of thoughtful touches such as home-made cookies, chilled mineral water, hand-picked seasonal fruits and complimentary newspapers to name a few.

What to Do

With the West End, the Palace, and so many of London’s famous attractions just a short taxi ride away, you are spoilt for choice. How about a private tour of London in The Milestone’s Bentley, driven by their wonderfully accommodating chauffeur? Or, if you’d prefer something a little more whimsical, perhaps a horse and carriage ride through Hyde Park? You could even try a spot of boating on the glistening Serpentine lake. If you’d perhaps like immerse yourself in the culture, the famous Royal Albert Hall lies just 5 minutes away from the hotel. Inspiring both inside and out, the Royal Albert host’s over 370 shows per year, and will not fail to impress.

The Food of Love

The Milestone prides itself on it’s fine English Cuisine, made using the best ingredients, locally sourced when possible. A huge variety of dishes crafted with passionate precision by The Milestone’s Executive chef are available and all dietary requirements are catered for. And with their vast collection of over 300 wines from across the world, you will surely find something to sip that perfectly compliments your dish. For the intimate romantic, how about some private dining in The Oratory? Once a chapel, this astounding restaurant with its ambiance and discreet staff, is the perfect place for a very special evening, and has been the setting for many proposals over the years.
