GUESTS OF THE MILESTONE HOTEL & RESIDENCES CAN COZY UP TO THEIR ROYAL NEIGHBORS AT KENSINGTON PALACE, JUST ACROSS THE WAY. A STAY HERE IS TRULY AKIN TO SPENDING THE NIGHT IN A PALACE OF ONE’S OWN.
Behind its striking red-and-white-brick facade, the distinguished hotel is noted for its Grade II-listed Victorian architecture, exquisite original art, and carefully curated furnishings. Each guest room and suite is unique and each is a testament to the hotel’s creativity with color, style, fine fabrics, and rare artworks. Sit down to delicious British cuisine, including Scottish salmon cured by London’s oldest smokery, at Cheneston’s, followed by the best cocktails in town, mixed by the creative Angelo of the Stables Bar (we love the signature Milestone Smoking Old Fashioned, with a theatrical twist). Legendary Royal Albert Hall, Notting Hill, and Knightsbridge are all just a short walk away. While you’re out, enjoy a traditional wicker basket picnic or afternoon tea prepared by the hotel staff for you in Kensington Gardens.

Voted number 3 top London City Hotel at the Travel + Leisure ‘World’s Best’ Awards 2020 together with a prestigious Forbes Five-Star rating. The Milestone is a hidden gem housed in a historic landmark mansion building overlooking Kensington Palace and its very prominent Royal neighbors.
Guests of the Milestone can enjoy private dining in The Oratory, which is the original chapel of the house. The Oratory is thought to be London’s smallest wedding venue, licensed for civil ceremonies with a capacity of just eight people. The unique Oratory is a romantic setting in which to celebrate on a small scale.
