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. 

Their Afternoon Tea is served in either the Park Lounge or the Chenestons Restaurant and the choice is at the discretion of the venue dependant on availability.

The interior of the Park Lounge is decorated with antiques and elegant furnishings that provides guests with an opulent environment to indulge in a selection of delicious sweet and savoury treats.
