Who's excited to see Sophie the Stegosaurus at The Natural History Museum? We can't wait to go and see our new neighbour!
The museum acquired the world’s most complete Stegosaurus for an undisclosed sum with help from a hedge fund manager

The V&A's latest exhibition Constable: The Making of a Master is well worth a visit

Afterwards, peruse our own unique art 
collection - we're just a brushstroke away 
from the museum

"Many a boutique hotel promises to deliver individuality, something different than your average could-be-anywhere chain hotel, but few do so like The Ampersand in South Kensington, which throws in five different themes: music, astronomy, ornithology, botany, and geometry."

The Ampersand Hotel perfectly captures the true essence of what a beautiful boutique hotel should be. The warmth filters through every moment and ensures that the Ampersand remains elegant and uniquely special.

Who spotted us in The Sunday Telegraph this weekend? 

"Fresh, welcoming and carefully considered, the interior defies Kensington stereotypes by being fun and exuberant rather than formal and old-fashioned. The restaurant, Apero, is worth a visit in its own right.” 

We're blushing!

From the interior design of our rooms to the collections and curiosities, our luxury boutique hotel in South Kensington unites guests with the local surrounding area through the five themes of botany, music, geometry, ornithology and astronomy. The hotel also features a restaurant serving fresh Mediterranean food.
 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Ampersand Hotel's unique concept is inspired by the capital's world-famous museum district and the iconic ampersand symbol, which illustrates the hotel's role in connecting its guests to the best of South Kensington. The hotel, which opened in its modern incarnation in summer 2012, was originally built as a boutique hotel. Values of discovery and wonder appear in the design of all 111 Luxury rooms and suites, from the pattern of the V&A's costume collection, to the Science Museum's planets, from the Natural History Museum's ornithological drawings to the drama and ceremony of the Royal Albert Hall.

Apero is among Kensington's best restaurants. With an elegant yet relaxed atmosphere, our food includes easy-going Mediterranean cooking while in The Drawing Rooms, our all-day coffee, patisserie and light bite menus can be enjoyed in a room that's always busy with a convivial neighbourhood spirit. We have a choice of three spaces, The Games Room, The Library & The Wine Room available for hire separately or together, all of them sharing the building's Victorian roots while being decorated in eclectic style and kitted out with the latest technology. In addition, we offer the latest equipment in our 24 hour Gym and a Table Tennis which guests are welcome to use when it's not in use for events. For things to do in London, we can direct you to the neighbourhood's best shops, which includes nearby Brompton Cross, Knightsbridge and Chelsea, as well as what's on in London's museum district on the Cromwell Road.

Having chosen the Ampersand from Kayak we were not sure exactly what to expect but are very happy to say it exceeded our expectations on many dimensions. A slight problem in getting there was that the taxi driver didn't know it, still thinking of it as the Grosvenor so make sure to have the address handy. Check in was smooth and the lobby decor is very stylish. Our room was small (as to be expected in SW7) but very sensibly set up. Excellent bathroom with high quality amenities. The bar down in the lower level served well thought out cocktails including creative non alcoholic options. We also highly recommend tea and cakes in the lobby. All in we now have a favorite base for our trips to London.

Excellent Champagne, premium teas and coffees, and home-made pastries in the Ampersand Hotel's Drawing Rooms. Delicious ingredients, striking artwork and, a stylish setting: it's the perfect afternoon! The Apero restaurant also has a gourmet Mediterranean grazing menu with a fantastic variety of ingredients including tomato, shiso, pepper dressing, cucumber, coriander, lime, chicken, peach, the spices sumac and saffron, squid ink, beetroot and ginger.
