More Information

The award-winning Milestone Hotel is the luxurious London flagship of the Red Carnation Hotel Collection. Also a proud member of the Leading Hotels of the World, the five-star Milestone Hotel is a quintessentially English property in the heart of London boasting luxurious suites and spacious long-stay apartments, fine British dining, and an award-winning Afternoon Tea.

The Milestone occupies a prime spot, located just minutes from The Royal Albert Hall, the Kensington museum district and the glamorous shopping area of Knightsbridge. The location is complemented by its intimate view of Kensington Palace, home to several members of the Royal Family, including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Formerly three separate 6-story late-Victorian mansions, The Milestone was first converted into a hotel in the 1920's, before being acquired by Red Carnation Hotels in 1998. The iconic building has since been transformed - under the influence of Beatrice Tollman, president and founder of the hotel collection - into what is arguably the most sumptuous and elegant hotel in London.

Each one of the hotel's 62 guest accommodations is individually decorated - furnished with antiques, opulent fabrics and upholstery and the latest in-room technology. The Milestone is home to Cheneston's Restaurant, specializing in the best of modern British cuisine; the Stables Bar and its adjacent black-and-white striped Conservatory; and the Park Lounge where award-winning afternoon tea is served.

Renowned for its generous hospitality, passionate service and attention to detail, The Milestone is the perfect home away from home.
