Loading reviews for The Rookery


Step back in time with a stay at The Rookery, a boutique hotel set in an exquisitely styled row of Georgian townhouses in vibrant Smithfield.

Dating from 1764 and decorated in the ornate style of that era, The Rookery enfolds you in period charm. Warm wood panelling, flagstone floors and a rich colour palette are matched by antique furniture, open fires and gilt-framed oil paintings.

Expect 17th-century carved oak or four-poster beds, heavy silks, damask throws and roll-top baths in the romantic, individually styled rooms, which are all named after local characters.

Live it up in The Rook’s Nest, a two-storey penthouse suite, where the deep green hues, four-poster bed and view of St Paul’s Cathedral continue the air of genteel sophistication.

Take time out in The Conservatory where you can sink into a comfy sofa and grab something to read in front of the fireplace.
