The Ampersand is a trendy - but unpretentious - hotel. The interior design is fashionable and the room was also well designed although very very small for two people! However it made use of the space in a practical manner which tied in with the overall design of the hotel - the breakfast room is down in the old cellar so all available space in the building is used. The staff are very very friendly and accommodating and go out of their way to help. I note that some other reviewers have mentioned noise - I specifically asked for a higher up room because of this and we were on the third floor and I got a good nights sleep. Also our room was very hot and you cannot open the window and the air con made it really cold so it was difficult to get a happy medium but these are just small gripes considering and it hasn't stopped me giving the hotel an overall Excellent rating.
