My daughter and I stayed at the Ampersand and loved it. Apero was perfect for breakfasts and ideal for a quick glass of wine at night.

We had dinner at the Apero and it was amazing. Chris Golding, the Head Chef, was just pure class. Food, drinks, atmosphere were excellent. Big thank you to Chris, for a special evening and excellent food. PS: Pear Panacotta was out of this world.

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
