Lovely Cosy Hotel in the Heart of London
Reviewed 1 week ago

Had a 2 night stay here in one of the attic rooms. Again you wouldnt think you were in the heart of the city. The hotel is in an excellent location close to Farringdon tube. Its like stepping back in time once you enter to the late 1800's. The cat snoozing by the fire!! The furnishings are lovely the Hotel is quiet/clean and cosy.

Great boutique hotel near Smithfield. Old fashioned bathrooms and excellent beds. Lots of pubs and restaurants in the area. Service was very good and staff were friendly and helpful. Afternoon tea in the library/lounge with an honesty bar. Pretty back garden.

Wonderful stay,

Our daughter had booked us a room at this hotel as a present to us for our wedding anniversary. It was easy to find and situated in a very convenient location being only a ten minute walk from St Paul’s. We arrived early and left our luggage with a very helpful gentleman on the desk. When we returned hot and tired from a wonderful day out in London we were greeted by a lovely young lady on the desk who told us we had been given a free upgrade to the Nest at 5he top of the house. She gave us a tour of the hotel and then took us yo our suite. Well - talk about the WOW factor. We’d never stayed in anything like it. Wonderful! We didn’t want for anything! Had the best nights sleep for ages in the sumptuous bed and then the amazing breakfast that was delivered to our door and taken up to the dining area for us. The whole experience was just magical made even better by the attentive and enthusiastic staff for whom nothing seemed too much trouble. All in all a wonderful experience. A big thankyou to all the staff at this amazing hotel.


No apology for fire alarm test at 5am on sunday morning it is

It is a great little hotel only few meters from Farringdon station and Smithfield market. Well decorated with attention to detail. Rooms are spacious and clean. Air conditioning in every room although a bit noisy. It would have been 5 stars if it was not for the fire alarm test at 5am on sunday morning; and without an apology by receptionist at check out.

A superb period hotel in a surprising location
Reviewed 1 month ago

The Rookery is a few hundred yards from Farringdon station but once you enter its portals you are in a different world and a very acceptable world. It oozes period charm and on the ground floor there are at least three comfortable lounges and an outside terrace. There is an honesty bar serving excellent wine from Berry Bros by the glass and tea and cake is served at 3-30pm. It is like a very large period town house and there is no lift and although one can have breakfast there is no restaurant as such. The rooms are very comfy and I asked for one on the ground floor to save the stairs. A tea tray and kettle were supplied on request and the welcome and service was excellent with a 24 hour desk. Given London prices it is a relative bargain and certainly somewhere where I would be happy to stay again
