Visitors to London can enjoy sumptuous surroundings and their own private front door in the Royal Borough of Kensington, while having 24/7 access to the personal services and facilities of one of London’s most prestigious five-star properties.
Located in what was formerly a private home, with a sweeping staircase and rooftop terrace, the seven Residences are accessible via a discreet side entrance and are perfect for extended business stays or for those travelling with family or friends.
There are five two-bedroom Residences and one newly converted three-bedroom Residence – the Kensington Palace Residence – with the latter now sleeping up to five guests. Each features a standalone kitchen, spacious living and dining area, luxurious walk-in showers and cleverly designed storage throughout.
The design and décor of all six Residences were conceptualised by Red Carnation Hotels’ design team, headed by the collection’s President and Founder herself, Beatrice Tollman, along with her daughter Toni Tollman.
No two rooms are the same and every design detail has been carefully considered with the rich history of the building and the needs of the discerning modern traveller as its heart.
Guests can expect deep hand-woven carpets, exquisite fabrics, antique or custom made furnishings, hand-crafted chandeliers, polished brass tables and Savoir beds, with rare artworks and vintage mirrors on the walls.
Feature pieces include a modern Murano glass chandelier and an antique mirror wall in the bright and airy William and Kate Residence, while the two-bedroom Price of Wales Residence features a selection of antique pieces including a rare mahogany, brass and cast iron zodiac table.
The Kensington Court Residence is a split-level Residence complete with a mezzanine bedroom upstairs, and access to a private terrace overlooking the rooftops of Kensington. The newly converted three-bedroom Kensington Palace Residence is the ideal choice for families, as the downstairs studio with separate entrance lends itself perfectly to accompanying nannies or teenagers seeking privacy.
Guests of The Milestone’s Residences will enjoy five-star services including 24-hour room service, twice daily housekeeping service, full concierge service, use of the hotel’s chauffeur, daily newspaper delivery, kitchen pantry essentials, plus a welcome basket of goodies featuring home-baked cookies, macaroons, juice, milk, bread, butter, preserves and more.
The Milestone Hotel & Residences General Manager Andrew Pike says, “Our newly designed long-stay Residences are a home away from home for business travellers spending an extended time in London, or families seeking comfortable yet stylish accommodation for their visit to the city.”
“Offering guests their very own address in one of London’s most desirable villages, Kensington, the Residences combine the value, space and authenticity of renting a private home, with the service, facilities and security of a five-star hotel. Our talented in-house design team have bestowed their creative talents to create functional yet elegant spaces, complementing the mansion house’s rich heritage which dates as far back as the 1880’s.”
