At The Ampersand, we understand that travelling with children in London can sometimes be difficult. That is why we have organised a range of family-oriented services to make your time with us as simple and stress-free as possible.
Exploring London can be tough on little legs, but with our South Kensington location — just walking distance from the Natural History Museum, Science Museum, Kensington Gardens, Princess Diana Memorial Playground and Hyde Park — you have easy access to some of the capital’s best destinations for children.
We also have a tube station right outside if you want to explore further afield. Our reception team is at your disposal to assist with booking any family activities in London, as well as organising babysitting services.
Family Friendly Rooms
We have a range of child-friendly services at The Ampersand.
All Deluxe Rooms, Deluxe Studios and Suites can accommodate an additional cot or fold-away bed (for children up to the age of 12) free of charge, and many rooms can interconnect. In all Deluxe Studio’s and Suites, we offer complimentary extra beds for up to one child. Our suites are complete with small kitchenettes, fitted with microwaves, kettles, toasters and fridges.
All rooms can come with (on request) child-size bathrobes and slippers, children’s toiletries and activity packs. All our rooms also come with complimentary soft drinks, tea & coffee and free Wi-Fi.
Please note: When installing beds and cots in rooms, we can only accommodate one or the other, not both. Thank you for your understanding.
Family Friendly Food & Drink
Spoil your little ones to the kid-friendly version of our Science Afternoon Tea. Our inventive menu features dinosaur biscuits and a rocket cheese straw.
Our Kids’ Sci-Fi Tea is designed to suit all the fussy eaters out there, while still pushing the boundaries of culinary ingenuity.
You can sample jellies served in petri dishes, bite the heads off chocolate spacemen and crunch through not-so-ancient edible fossils. Food is served on a rocket-shaped stand, with dry ice shooting out the bottom. Your children will leave feeling one step closer to the stars, and as full as a T-rex after a dinner of Triceratops.
We also offer a Kids menu in Apero and all children aged under four receive complimentary continental buffet breakfast.
Spoil your little ones to the children’s version of our Jurassic Afternoon Tea. Our inventive menu features dinosaur biscuits and a dinosaur cheese claw.
Our Kids’ Jurassic is designed to suit all the fussy eaters out there, while still pushing the boundaries of culinary ingenuity.
