A small townhouse hotel with 11 rooms, the Lord Milner is tucked away from the main roads, yet is a mere five minute walk from the Victoria main line train and tube station.
Each of the Lord Milner’s rooms is different. The Empire Room has a large four poster bed with an old sea chest, an antique-style floor standing globe, oil paintings and bedside lamps of the period. The colour scheme is a warm primrose with cream, and full length shot silk curtains complete the look.
No nods to the past are evident in the bathroom. It is tiny but fully tiled with power shower and bath, supplied with quality toiletries and fluffy whites.
Wardrobe space is afforded between two doors that form a lobby to the room, so one is not disturbed by other guests walking outside the bedroom door.
A lift to all floors means negotiating the narrow Victorian staircase with a suitcase is not necessary.
Front desk service is very helpful and they will gladly keep your luggage safe if you arrive before 2pm. Similarly, a late check out is not the huge problem that some hotels make it out to be.
Located in the congestion zone, parking at the nearby NPC is as expensive as one would expect, £32 per 24 hours.
There are a large number of good restaurants in the area or nearby to try and this is a perfect hotel for a London visit.
