Destination...London, Kensington

Stay in the heart of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea - a beautiful neighbourhood which exudes a polished refinement in a perfect location for exploring the fabulous city of London.   This is one of London’s most exclusive areas, the home of fine museums such as the Victoria & Albert & Natural History Museum, artisan bakeries that seamless blend into old-world buildings, world-class shopping at Harrods & graceful parks such as the iconic Hyde Park.

At first glance, the neighbourhood of Kensington is a prim, well-to-do area where exquisite Victorian architecture reflects an old-fashioned culture. Scratch the surface, however, and you’ll find that beneath the facade, there’s an inventive, vibrant community that’s home to some of the Capital’s quirkiest and most intriguing diversions, a veritable kaleidoscope of entertainment options. Fed by new arrivals from around the world, the area has become a melting pot of international ideas and influences, a centre of creativity, reinvention and unstuffy fun—truly, a district of hidden depths.

Nearby attractions:

  • Kensington Palace: 3min / 0.2miles by foot
  • Royal Albert Hall: 10min / 0.5miles by foot
  • Notting Hill: 15min / 0.8miles by foot
  • Harrods: 25min / 1.2miles by foot or 10min by car
  • Oxford Street: 30min / 1.6miles by foot through the beautiful Hyde Park

- Master Suite (40m² / max. 3 persons):

Taste

Just for you: A complimentary welcome drink per person per stay

Cheneston's Restaurant
Deriving its name from an early spelling of Kensington, Cheneston's is an intimate and elegant restaurant, offering the finest British cuisine.

As you step in from the bustling city streets of Kensington you will be struck by the fine traditional décor, rich mahogany furniture, warm wood panelling and the abundance of natural daylight pouring in from the Victorian leaded windows. Enter a world of calm sophistication and sumptuous luxury in our dining room, a room full of character, reflecting the distinctive period architecture of the building. 

It’s hard to imagine a more comfortable and welcoming environment in which to enjoy an exceptional dining experience, with discreet yet attentive service to match.

The Conservatory
This bright and airy Conservatory, with its chic juxtaposition of sheer black and white, gives you the al fresco ambience with natural light pouring through the glass. With comfortable leather armchairs and sofas it is the perfect place to unwind.

Stables Bar
An intimate and unique hideaway.  Names can be deceiving and that's certainly true of this Kensington hotel bar. Although it’s called the Stables at the Milestone, it's not just a place to pass through on the way to somewhere else. With a delectable signature cocktail, theatrical presentation of you drinks & barrel-aged whisky this bar should be your ultimate destination.

Afternoon Tea
Overlooking Kensington Palace, The Milestone Hotel is the perfect location to experience a Royal Afternoon Tea. Guests can enjoy a selection of tempting treats in celebration of our Royal neighbours including:
    -  Home-made ginger cakes and chocolate éclairs
    -  Warm scones with thick cream and home-made jam
    -  Delicate finger sandwiches including smoked Scottish salmon and cream cheese
    -  A wide choice of fine teas from around the world

The food was wonderful, made all the more special by the surroundings, and the perfectly-pitched service. Only truly great hotels find the right balance between attentive first-class service, and a friendly and warm welcome. The Milestone gets it spot on.
