About The Milestone Hotel & Residences

Description

The Milestone is a historic hotel in the heart of Kensington that boasts a wealth of beautiful spaces in which to host a private dining event. From original marble checkerboard floors to Victorian tiling, leaded windows and wooden panelling, guests are invited to step back in time to the 19th-century for the evening. All of the hotel’s spaces boast sumptuous furnishings and exquisite artwork, while its modern British menus have been designed by the highly-talented executive chef Daniel Putz.

Its largest space is the main restaurant Cheneston's, a traditionally decorated room with elegant furnishings, original Victorian windows and wood panelling. This space can hold 30 people for dinner, or 40 for a standing reception, and comes complete with fresh flowers and table decorations.

The Windsor Suite is another exquisite private dining room for up to 27 seated guests. At its centre lies a spectacular chandelier and open fireplace, while aged pine-panelled walls provide an exemplary location for a special dinner with colleagues or friends.

For more intimate private gatherings, you might like to book the Oratory which was once the original chapel of the house. Able to cater for up to eight guests, this space is perfect for cosy celebrations, and boasts ornate vaulted ceilings for an enchanting feel. Finally, the Map Room is its smallest space for up to six seated guests, and would work best for small corporate meetings.

A range of private dining menus are available but all offer a refined selection of modern British dishes. Examples include duck liver parfait with spiced peach, madeira jelly and gingerbread to start, roasted rump of Yorkshire lamb with braised shoulder croquette, fondant potato, peas, mint and lamb jus for main, and a chocolate fondant with salted peanut butter ice cream for dessert.

Testimonials For The Milestone Hotel & Residences

Wonderful event at The Milestone Hotel MARCH, 2024

The staff were incredibly helpful and kind, very considerate. The room itself was perfect! They paid good attention to detail and made our day as special as it could have been. We had great communication, from day one with Emma to the people who helped us on the day, including Leo. They catered to our specific needs and nothing was too much for them.

K Randall

'Leo and the rest of the team were exemplary'NOVEMBER, 2023

There is not one thing I would change about the day and overall experience. Leo and the rest of the team were exemplary. We will definitely be returning to The Milestone on our next journey back to London. 

A happy guest

Highly recommend them for small parties, weddings and events!!NOVEMBER, 2023

My husband and I had our wedding reception at the Milestone. The service and food was impeccable and the staff were just fantastic. Right from the attention to detail and all the help they provided, could not fault them at all. The events coordinator, Emma was fantastic and so so helpful with the planning and organization of the day. We were on a tight budget, where a lot of other venues we looked at were so inflexible with certain things and made us feel like we had to pay and arm and a leg, the Milestone worked within our budget (within reason of course) to help us achieve what we wanted on the day. Really felt like they went above and beyond to make our day that extra special. Highly recommend them for small parties, weddings and events!!
