Full of warmth and character, yet with state-of-the-art facilities, The Rookery is a small London hotel with Old World charm.

The Rookery is located in the fashionable area of Clerkenwell, between the West End and London's central business district, known as The City. It is like Soho in the east, with bustling street life and a plethora of fascinating places to eat and drink.

Quietly located a short distance from the Barbican, St Pauls, Holborn and The Tate Modern, the only remaining early houses in St Peter's Lane have been repaired and extended to create our delightful small hotel. Inside, the Rookery is all period charm. Polished wood panelling, stone flagged floors, open fires and genuine antique furniture give the place a warm, homely atmosphere - more private club than hotel.

The suites and bedrooms are traditionally furnished, with panelled walls and mellow old furniture, pictures and rugs. There is even The Rooks Nest - 2 story penthouse apartment.

Expect civilised surroundings, old fashioned hospitality, a location away from the roar of traffic but a short walk to many important attractions. The conservatory has a working fireplace, comfortable furnishings and plenty to read. There is an honesty bar where you can relax or entertain friends. There is 24 hour room service, and a laundry service. Other extras can be arranged.
