Taking its name from the original cast iron milestone that stands against one of its walls The Milestone Hotel is a deluxe 5 star boutique hotel overlooking Kensington Palace, former home to Princess Diana, and Kensington Gardens. Built in the late 19th Century as two townhouses, the hotel is a listed building and the restoration has been meticulously done according to English Heritage standards with original fireplaces, carved wood panelling, high ceilings and large ornate windows. The interior is decorated with antiques, and elegant furnishings.
In contrast, the newly refurbished Conservatory is a vision of contemporary black and white, where Audrey Hepburn looks down from the wall.
This hotel has been awarded 'The Tea Guild special Awards of Excellence 2012' in recognition of its outstanding quality and consistently high standards in Afternoon Tea service.
Afternoon Tea is served at 1pm, 3pm and 5pm every day
