Impressively located in London’s ritzy neighborhood of Belgravia, just a short walk from Victoria Station, The Lord Milner embraces the taste and elegance of a bygone era. Its stately white Edwardian facade, adorned with shiny black railings and a graceful stepped entrance, appears to have changed little since the days when illustrious statesman Lord Milner himself lived here. The interiors are just as impressive, boasting a period-style sitting room, complete with leather armchairs, a marble fireplace, gilt-framed paintings and a large, free-standing wooden globe.
The whole place exudes an air of nobility, with 11 individually designed guest rooms, each finished to the highest standard, and personalized service deserving of its five-star rating. Whether you’re a seasoned visitor to London or a complete newcomer, the concierge is always on hand to fulfill your every need and request, including restaurant and theater reservations, advice on galleries and museums and insider tips on lesser-known city attractions. Just don’t forget to enjoy the sumptuous breakfast before heading out to see the sights.
All the rooms here are individually decorated and feature marble en-suite bathrooms. The Single room is finished in a warm, soothing color palette and is perfect if you’re traveling solo. Meanwhile, the Executive room measures in at 190 square feet and features a convenient workstation. For even more space, upgrade to a Deluxe room, boasting 300 square feet for you to stretch out in.
Enjoy a delicious continental breakfast every morning, served directly to your room. For other meals, there’s an impressive array of restaurants and cafés in the vicinity, and the hotel concierge will happily provide recommendations and make reservations for you.
The Lord Milner sits on a quiet residential street in the heart of London’s Belgravia neighborhood. It’s so central that you can walk to many of the most iconic spots, such as Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament – not to mention high-end shopping and gourmet dining galore. Staying in such a central location also means that you’re close to one of the city’s main transport hubs, Victoria Station, making getting in an out all the more easy.
How to Get There
With regard to my stay last night, I was struck by how comfortable and clean the room was. The bed was extremely comfortable and I felt fully rested this morning. I was also struck by how comfortable even the towels were which further emphasised the quality standard of the room.
Also despite arriving late (11.45pm), you were very welcoming and helpful, and very customer friendly on my check out.
Lovely hotel. Fabulous and friendly staff.
Upgraded to the empire room which was lovely. Four poster bed which was a dream to sleep on. Room was large and and tastefully decorated.
If I was to suggest any improvements it would be to provide bathrobes and a little more toiletries. They were very stingy and being a five star I would expect more.
Just little things like that. Thank you for a lovely night.
The staff were lovely, and I was impressed with how quiet the room was. It was beautifully laid out with nice touches. I was, however, surprised with how small the room was; I had to lift my case onto the bed to be able to open it. The bathroom was also gorgeous, but the bath was too small. Overall, everything was clean, and the location is fantastic for dining out.
Garden Suite. Very good bed quality. So comfortable, Double pillow very soft. Super recommended.
Bathroom was little but useful. The floor was heated, so it's comfortable.
The room was a little bit cold, I hope this will change in the future.
For the price (remember is the Suite), the breakfast could be included, it's my suggestion.
Final rating 9/10
We had booked the garden suite for two nights and it's a definite 'wow' when you enter it. However, one of the legs on the chaise longue was broken and unusable. The hotel was clearly aware as there was an odd looking piece of wood behind the leg but it made no difference, you couldn't sit on it. The safe didn't work but couldn't be fixed until the next day. The bathroom was tiny with no room to put toiletries. There were no bathrobes (I expect these in a luxury hotel) and the skylight was filthy! There were dirty cups in the dishwasher and a limited range of utensils. That said the room is spacious and tastefully decorated. The location is good. On a quiet road but with quick and easy access to Victoria and both boutique and convenience shops. The breakfast was lovely and it was a treat to have it delivered to the room. On checkout we mentioned the leg being broken on the chaise longue and were reassured the lamps were being replaced! The couple in front of us were given chocolates when they checked out but we were given nothing. It is lovely but I expect more from a five star hotel I'm afraid.
