A Classic Tale
The iconic fairytale tells the tale of a young woman whose royal identity is established by a test of her physical sensitivity after it is determined that only a true Princess would detect a pea between her 20 feather beds and mattresses.
After enduring a sleepless night kept awake by something in her bed, the would-be Princess is crowned and the pea is placed in a museum where, according to the storyteller, it can still be seen today.
But dear reader, whether or not you have royal credentials, you will experience exceptional quality sleep with The Ampersand Hotel as the South Kensington boutique hotel is well known for its beds.
Just a stone’s throw from Kensington Palace, where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are soon to return with the Prince and Princess, it seems only fitting that the fairy tale should come to life at The Ampersand Hotel’s South Kensington home.
The Princess and the Pea themed stay is available for a limited time only from 5 June – 3 July 2017
