Wanted somewhere with traditional styling for an August bank holiday weekend break in London EC and the Rookery fitted the bill. Super friendly hotel staff. Dark wood everywhere, cat reclining in front of the fire, small garden patio, honesty bar with cake and deep armchairs, free standing bath, and cosy bedding. A good choice for discerning couples. Easily walkable to St Paul's, Paternoster Square, the Millenium Bridge and Shakespeare's Globe. Recommend the Polpo Smithfield restaurant a couple of doors down for Italian tapas-style food. Short walk from Farringdon tube station.
