We spent a lovely night at this quirky little hotel in Clerkenwell. The room was lovely - the bed so comfortable and an intriguing en-suite. The staff were all lovely and we enjoyed making use of the honesty bar. Breakfast was bought to the room on a try which suited us fine. It was a great find and I’d strongly recommend you try it.

I had to come to London for work, but decided to add pleasure on the end and booked for a couple of nights at the Rookery. Oh my, what a find! It's quaint, quirky, discreet and individual. Lovely welcome from the reception staff, who couldn't have been more welcoming We originally had a room on the first floor over looking the main street, but I'm a really light sleeper, so the noise from people outside and upstairs kept me awake. No problem, we were moved in a jiffy to a room next to reception, which had no one above. Fabulously comfy beds, lots of history and reclaimed furniture, roll top Bath, mini bar - it was just fab. There is an honesty bar, which was a nice touch, with a great selection of spirits and wine - just write what you have in a book and it's added to your bill. There is an open fire, which was lovely after a cold, rainy day, and a resident cat, who took a liking to my coat! All in all, a great hotel and will definitely use it again when I go to london

I am so grateful for the chance meeting just before the UK covid 19 lock down, between my manager and Caroline the CEO of The Rookery. With amazing generosity she opened the doors of the hotel to an assortment of nurses and drs working at Great Ormond Street Hospital as we began to struggle to travel as normal for shift work with changes in public transport provisions. Being able to sleep in the most comfortable beds with blissful en-suites during the lock down period allowed me to decompress, recharge and face each day as it came as the hospital adapted to the crisis. The Rookery has been my refuge and I am so grateful for the generosity and care offered by Caroline and those of her team that lived-in during these past months. As the Hotel gets ready to reopen again I just want to say the most massive thank you for the warmth and welcome offered during difficult times. I will always think of the room I mostly stayed in, ‘Clarice of Cooks Lane’, as a port in a storm rather than the local lady of the night it is actually named after!! A million thank you’s to the team at The Rookery

This is the kind of hotel you want to keep for yourself! Situated outside the beaten paths, yet 20min. by taxi to the centre (or a nice 50min. walk). Very friendly staff. Historic venue with lots of charm. We had the Walter De Manny suite and found ourselves in a very cosy interior with good bedding, nice bathroom and very quiet. This room has two floors. Very good breakfast with no surcharge when served in the room.

We stayed here over the 2019 holiday season, and I just wanted to write a quick note about how much we enjoyed our time here. Our room, a junior suite, was very large and decorated with period furniture. The bathroom was clean and spacious, although it was down a flight of stairs off the bedroom, so that could be a concern if one has mobility issues. The staff were helpful with our questions and a pleasure to deal with-including the cat! As for location, the Rookery is just down the street from the Farringdon underground stop, and the surrounding neighborhood has many dining options, both formal and casual. I felt no issues with walking around alone after dark. The immediate area was very quiet at night, so there were no issues with noise while we slept. Highly recommended.
