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
Booked for the weekend. Nearly walked past the entrance as it is basically a Georgian townhouse in a road of terraced townhouses. This is in the heart of Belgravia in a relatively quiet area of London. Room was comfortable, clean and well appointed. Reception is manned 0700-2300. Breakfast if you want it is pre-selected and served in your room. The alternatives are some delightful cafes just a few yards away. Just a short walk from Victoria or Sloan Square.
The location is ideal - just around the corner of Victoria Station. The room we got (Garden Suite) was spacious, although not perfectly clean. Of course, it is NOT a five star hotel. Too many things are lacking - like robes etc. The staff was not always helpful. E.g. my friend was not allowed to check-in without me, although I had emailed the name to them before arrival. Breakfast was okay, but there are better alternatives nearby. I would recommend this little hotel to the ones who are looking for something genuine. HH-members et al., please, stay with your usual accommodation :-)
Booked via Groupon which included a free continental breakfast.
Hotel is situated in zone 1 and a 45 min walk from Convent Garden, Leicester square and theatres.
It's not a 5 star, but I can see why it's well rated on trip advisor, as although basic, it's clean and tidy, with a comfortable bed and a quiet location.
The hotel is a basic bed and breakfast and you can tell its past it's best, presentation wise, but with the price you're charged with offers giving discounts it's worth it. In my view it's not good value if you pay the full price..
The comfort and quiet location with a good standard of continental breakfast is what saves it.
