The Ampersand Hotel South Kensington is where people come together to talk, rest and enjoy honest cooking in a neighbourhood hotel and restaurant full of convivial soul. The Kensington venue’s style is unpretentious yet packed with quirky touches with a relaxed atmosphere that still delivers on the details.

Apero is an all-day neighbourhood restaurant and bar nestled in the Kensington hotel’s vaulted cellars. Full of modern Mediterranean zest.

On the ground floor, French finesse meets British style in The Drawing Rooms. This is the perfect place to watch the world go by while enjoying pretty patisseries, tartines and afternoon tea. The Back of The Drawings Rooms is the perfect location for evening canapé receptions.

Meeting and event rooms at The Ampersand Hotel combine a sense of occasion with state-of-the art facilities and an intuitive understanding of your style and requirements.

With a capacity for 12 seated and up to 35 standing, this intimate snug is perfect for a low-key conference, press day, private lunch or small cocktail reception. The Library is home to The Ampersand Kensington’s specially-curated collection of books, providing a unique interior style and inspiration for conversation.

Accommodating up to 20 seated or 50 standing, the Games Room at the Kensington hotel offers an irreverent backdrop for your corporate event or private celebration. Shelves in the Games Room are lined with books and curiosities while at the room’s heart is a full-size table-tennis table.

Adjacent to the Apero restaurant, this is a decadent, elegant space for private dining for 10 people. Statement lighting, a polished basalt floor and an imposing oak banqueting table make this a sophisticated environment to
sample The Ampersand’s wine cellar.
