South Kensington

In a Victorian stucco property, Ampersand has a strong design ethos, with dove greys and duck-egg blues enlivened by splashes of purples, yellows and reds, bringing together a striking and distinctive look.

A whimsical twist on the classic comes from the likes of tall purple padded headboards reaching nearly to the ceiling and dove drawings on the dove- grey walls in the ornithologically inspired deluxe rooms. In the corridors, botanical drawings and interesting representations of scientific instruments reference the museums nearby, while the colourful lounge area – where afternoon tea is served – has deep sofas and studded armchairs in scarlet velvets and kingfisher blues and a multicoloured teapot collection in a wall cabinet.

Breakfast and dining is found downstairs in the white-tiled Mediterranean-oriented Apero restaurant.

Puking Pastille

Haven’t stayed at this hotel, but did have an absolutely lovely afternoon tea here! It’s not cheap (£39.50 per person with Champagne), but the quality of both the food and the service is extremely high. We were seated straight away in the beautifully bright Drawing Rooms and served chilled Moet immediately before a very impressive tower of delicate sandwiches, cakes, pastries and macarons arrived, along with a pot of tea. Everything was beautifully done and so delicious that we scoffed the lot! Not once did we feel rushed or that we were outstaying our welcome, which is just as well given that we were too full to move for a while… A really great alternative to the more well-known afternoon tea destinations in London and good value considering the quality.
