The Rookery is just steps from Farrington Station. The area has lots of restaurants and nightlife within walking distance. The hotel was very helpful, desk agent walked us to the room, brought up tea service right after showing us the room. We stayed in a superior double, which was big enough to have a desk and two sitting chairs. The furniture and pictures in the rooms and spaces really set this place apart. We loved it.

Room Tip: No lift - rooms can be as high as three floors up

The Rookery is a real find - but only if you are happy with a few quirks. Reading some previous reviews, some folks seem to have a few issues. It seems that it is a ‘marmite’ hotel - lots love it, a few don’t rate it
But we loved it!
But if you expect a sanitised 4 star Hilton/Marriott experience you may be disappointed. No walk in shower, no mixer taps, no lift, no kettle in room etc. BUT you do get fantastic help with all your bags, a wonderful bathroom completely in keeping with an 18th century property, excellent tea & coffee delivered fresh to your room. And a fantastic room, great location, a well priced & well stocked mini-bar, a lovely honesty bar in a beautiful lounge downstairs, superb other sitting areas & great staff - smiles, professionalism, spot on. And no one looking for a tip all the time
We also read the reviews about street noise & warm rooms. This hotel is bang centre in the middle of one of the up & coming & trendiest parts of London so yes there is street noise. And yes the nearby Smithfield Market works through the night. But the rooms have great double glazing & the noise through the night is barely noticeable. But if you’re a light sleeper go for a different (& much more boring!) location! The rooms were quite warm & the air conditioning isn’t brilliant but having the window open for 20 minutes before bed soon cooled the room down
Yes the bacon sandwich wasn’t cheap but it was the best I have ever had, it comes with fresh coffee & fresh orange juice, and is delivered to the room. But equally there are many great places to eat breakfast in the surrounding streets. So take your pick
Our only other gripe was that there wasn’t a plug near the mirror but that is a small, albeit annoying, problem.
So not a hotel for sanitised travellers but a real find for those of us happy to plough our own furrow & discover hidden gems!

I've book a superior double room for our one year anniversery. When we got there we immediatly had a tour of this lovely hotel. We even met the "housecat" bagera.
The hotel breaths history. It's also a very relaxing place. Yiu have a place for tea, a place to read. Best thing was that we've been upgraded to the suite "the rooks nest". A duplex room where the ceiling rolls open. You can look to the upper room through the ceiling. We've enjoyed to the max. Loved it

This hotel has a lot of character. We find that most hotels in the centre of London are a bit like up market travel lodges. This looked quirky and like it had a little bit of history which we really liked. Rooms nice. Bathrooms nice and really comfy bed/bedding. Rail station also very close by so very convenient. However there are no tea/coffee making facilities and you get one complimentary tea tray on arrival! My partner ordered a bouquet of flowers to be in the room as a belated valentines present. He paid £40 for this extra and when we got there there was a tall thin vase with a small arrangement of roses and another flower in (not what my partner ordered). These just looked like an arrangement that would be in the room anyway and were nothing special. In all fairness to the lady in reception, she did take the cost of the flowers off the price of the room when I asked her if she expected us to pay for flowers that we could not take with us as they were in a vase (how was I supposed to carry this about town?)!!!! The room was quite dusty and extremely noisy after 1am (we could hear plumbing from other rooms and a really loud whirring sound coming from above which kept my partner up most of the night! Bit of a disappointment as this was our Valentine's weekend away. I have only rated this hotel a three as there were NO basic tea making facilities. We had a tea tray bought to our room and there was nowhere to plug the kettle in!! Dusty noisy room with overpriced breakfast (don't pay for this there is a cafe across the road)

We had an amazing time at the Rookery. Lovely responsive staff. It is exactly as the other reviewers have described. Only thing I would fault them on, is that the fireplace in the sitting room wasn't working. Otherwise I give them 5 out of 5. We stayed in the William Pettit Griffith room which is one of the lower priced ones available. I was worried it might be a bit small but it was plenty big. It did not have a shower however, but an old fashioned bath tub with a shower attachment. We did not have any problems with noise as other reviewers have mentioned, in fact it was the opposite, the hotel was quiet as a tomb which was WONDERFUL.
