How to Get There
The Rookery has a nice Victorian bedrooms and common area a a short walk from the Farringdon tube & train stations. The Club Double room had enough room for a chair and table, and the bed was comfortable. (If you’re short, it’s a high climb to get into.) The staff was friendly and helpful.
We live just outside London, however, a theatre trip to the Barbican coincided with a wedding anniversary. We thought we would treat ourselves to a night away.
We are so pleased we choose the Rookery,
We found it delightful. Low key understated but excellent service and a fantastic room (we had booked a suite but were upgraded and given the Rooks Nest)
The room totally exceeded our expectations beautifully furnished with quirky witty touches, a very opulent roll top bath and four poster bed, with an additional upstairs seating/drinks and dining space.
We loved the fact there isn’t a manned bar (often in small Hotels you wait quite a while to be served) the self service honesty bar was very well stocked and nice to help yourself, as are the bars in the room.
The room service menu is quite short, however, there are many good restaurants Farringdon and Clerkenwell.
We had the in room breakfast which arrived bang on time and was very tasty and well presented.
The rookery is a real Oasis in central London.
The term boutique hotel is much overused these days. The Rookery, however, fits the bill perfectly. Individual, well conceived, and well ran!
Please read people's reviews so that you get what is expected. This hotel is decorated as a period hotel, so the lovely 'gadgets' we are used to in modern hotels DO NOT APPLY. The shower is quaint, but not effective, so take a bath! There are no bright lights in the rooms to do your makeup. The telephone does not always work, so take that short trip down to reception to see the amenable and extremely helpful staff to make your demands! You are next to a very popular nightclub, so keep the windows shut if you dont want drunken shouting to break your sleep.
The room we stayed in was the Bennett Smith (see photos) and it was lovely. The floor sloped and the lighting was dim and atmospheric. The bed was a regular double with lovely bedding of a high quality. The Tv was hidden in a great piece of furniture but easy to navigate (some services are a tad temperamental!)
We had a wander around into the communal areas, where an honesty bar in the conservatory room is included, a conference room of sorts, as well as a couple of nice quiet seating areas for reading or gathering.
We didnt eat at the hotel so cannot comment
