We stayed at the Milestone recently to celebrate my husband's birthday. We had been staying in a different area of London for 5 nights before staying at the milestone & had a very hectic week so were ready to relax & enjoy his birthday. The decor is traditional & there are some lovely original features in the hotel. The service was excellent as was the food, the extra special touches & attention to detail is what makes this hotel a great place to stay. Upon check in we were given an upgrade which was much appreciated & Fran showed us round the hotel. He was extremely helpful, knowledgable & friendly as were all the staff. The room was lovely as was the bathroom with plenty of nice touches, the only thing that wasn't perfect was the picture on the TV but as we didn't really watch a lot of tv it wasn't an issue for us.
We ate in the restaurant on the first night & the food was very nice, my husband ordered the cheesecake for dessert & was given a huge slice which pleased him as he loves desserts! Afterwards we had cocktails in the conservatory which is really nice place to relax & as usual the service was excellent. When we got back to the room there were rose petals everywhere with chocolates, chocolate covered strawberries & the birthday cake which I had arranged for my husband. The cake was absolutely delicious & there was even a birthday card that Fran had written out for my husband, these thoughtful little touches made it a really memory occasion. The breakfast the next morning was lovely & we took a taxi to Harrods to do some shopping. When we returned we sampled the afternoon tea, we had the chocolate version which included chocolate fondue, it was delicious & there was so much of it. Earlier in the week we had taken afternoon tea at claridges & the tea at the milestone certainly matched it. In the evening again a taxi was quickly hailed for us we had booked a table at Clos Maggiore & upon our return there was a large umbrella waiting for us as we stepped out of the taxi as there was an unexpected down pour. The next day we chose to have breakfast in our room & again the food & the service were excellent. We would highly recommend this hotel & it deserves the good reviews it has on tripadvisor, the staff really go out of their way to ensure you have an enjoyable & memorable stay. Red carnation hotels offer the extra touches that can really make a difference whether it is the daily weather forecast, fresh flowers, luxury toiletries, selection of glasses in the room, complimentary shoe cleaning service & bottled water on check out.
