We stayed at The Milestone in February for one night, as part of a surprise birthday getaway which my husband organised. We stayed in a deluxe double room (no. 310) which, being on the third floor and on the front of the hotel, had great views over Hyde Park. We weren't aware of any traffic noise at all - very quiet. The room was spacious and clean with a wonderful en-suite bathroom.
Free wi-fi in your room. Fruit platter and welcome drink on arrival plus an informative tour of the hotel. We didn't stay for afternoon tea as we were dashing off to the theatre, but we have had afternoon tea at The Milestone before and I would highly recommend it - a wonderful experience. Nearest tube station is High Street Kensington (just 5 mins walk away), or the hotel will organise taxis for you.
We enjoyed cocktails in the hotel bar, made by the wonderful Markus (Head Mixologist!), before heading out for dinner locally. Many great restaurants in the area, or you can make reservations at the hotel restaurant. We were greeted by every member of staff we met at The Milestone. The team are certainly keen to make their guests feel welcome and valued during their stay. On several occasions, we saw members of the management team taking the time to interact with the hotel guests as they sat for coffee or dinner. Anything you want or need is catered for.
When we returned to our room later in the evening, staff had been in to scatter rose petals around the room and light candles. The 'romantic turndown' as they call it - amazing! Overall, a truly wonderful experience - would definitely visit The Milestone again and highly recommend it to others. For us, it made the special occasion even more special!
