The Milestone Hotel, Kensington, London

With a brilliant location in London's Kensington – and indeed views of Kensington Palace and Kensington Gardens from some rooms – this luxury hotel is a popular choice for family holidays and breaks, with individually decorated guest rooms of a high standard. The decor varies but tends towards the classical, with contemporary elements. There's also a small basement resistance pool and sauna.

Staff are extremely attentive, whether it comes to making theatre reservations or recommending places to visit, and the restaurant serves exceptional cuisine – although with kids you're more likely to each in the cozy lounge with its children's menu and afternoon teas. In summer, you can also order picnics to take to the park. 

Babies and children are treated like special guests, with  the likes of junior bathrobes and slippers, books, a chocolate mouse at turndown and children's dishes on room service, and parents can travel light in the knowledge that buggies, playpens and other practicalities can all be hired. Family packages are generally available.
