The magnificent Milestone Hotel in London is offering the ultimate getaway when Wimbledon is on. Baroque Travel has all the details
There’s only one way to experience Wimbledon, and that’s in unsurpassed luxury. Which is why we suggest a stay at the lavish Milestone Hotel plus two Center Court tickets to the Men’s Quarterfinals. Of course, Baroque Travel can arrange tickets to the Finals if we do all the bookings now, so that’s just a taste of what’s on offer if you decide to take advantage of this amazing offer.
This intimate boutique hotel is situated in the heart of London in a heritage II listed mansion. Staying here is like stepping back in time to a more glamorous era, where the service is personalized and the renowned 24-hour butlers are unmatchable. Offering stunning views overlooking Kensington Palace and its exquisite Gardens, the hotel is just a short stroll to Hyde Park, Harrods Department Store and the Royal Albert Hall.
Guest rooms are plush and individually designed, furnished with antiques, fresh flowers, fine fabrics and every modern facility, including flat-screen TV, DVD player, en suite bathroom and treats that are replenished daily, such as homemade cookies, candles, seasonal fruits and candy.
Dining at the hotel’s Cheneston’s Restaurant is a gourmet treat with locally sourced and organic ingredients transformed into delectable delights. There’s also the intimate Stables Bar, which offers a stunning selection of more than 400 vintage wines. Or guests enjoy savoring a cocktail or two in the chic conservatory. And then there’s the legendary High Tea in the lounge…
