UK - Aldourie Castle

Stay in a castle and bring your childhood fantasies to life at one of Scotland’s finest exclusive use properties. Perched on the banks of Loch Ness, Aldourie Castle has been lovingly and skilfully resorted to resemble its Victorian hey-dey. 

1/18
UK - Aberdeenshire

No other country in the UK & Ireland is quite so beautiful to journey across as Scotland. Whether you’re travelling by train or by car, make sure to take in some majestic natural landscapes.

2/18
UK Corinthia Hotel London Nightime Terrace

We might be biased, but no city comes alive at night quite like London, and few terraces beat this one - the Corinthia's Penthouse Suite. Bridges flicker into life, the Thames glows with reflections from all sides, Canary Wharf never sleeps and signature sites, such as the London Eye, Houses of Parliament, the Shard and St Paul’s Cathedral are sensationally lit all night long.

3/18
UK - Prince's Lodge

One of the smartest hotels in town, The Connaught in Mayfair is the perfect pied-a-terre while in London. 

4/18
UK Ballyfin Ireland

One of Ireland’s finest country house hotels, Ballyfin is Ampersand’s favourite hotel in Ireland outside of Dublin. Exquisitely redone to capture the splendour of its Regency beginnings, Ballyfin boasts just 15 rooms & suites over 600 acres of idyllic countryside. 

5/18
UK - Boundary Rooftop

One of London’s most popular spots as soon as the sun comes out, Boundary Rooftop in Shoreditch, open for lunch, dinner, drinks and general relaxation, is one of the trendiest hangouts in town. 

6/18
Lucknam Park, Bath, UK, Top Tens
UK - Corinthia Suite Terrace

Corinthia’s seven Penthouse Suites are some of the finest, and largest, in London. All boast sensational views, but come with a different selection of luxurious extras from private spas. Large open terraces, cocktail cabinets and nearly everything else you can think of.

8/18
UK - Claridge's Lobby

One of London’s finest hotels, this art deco splendour is loved by both royalty and rock stars. 

9/18
UK - Belgraves Room

Shop to your heart’s content or sample some of the capital’s best restaurants from your base at Belgraves, one of London’s trendiest boutique hotels.

Client Testimonials

I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with. Everything – from the individual care and attention in helping to plan the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round.
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
