“Fashionable Clerkenwell is home to this intimate, period charm City bolthole which prides itself on homely atmosphere across three 18th Century houses. Rooms are full of character, classic antiques, open fires and roll top baths. Breakfast in bed or in the garden is the perfect way to start the day.”

Hotel Overview

“This homely hotel, full of curiosities and flights of fancy in a traffic-free alleyway in fashionable Clerkenwell, was created from a row of listed Georgian cottages. The pretty bedrooms have antique beds with superb mattresses and sheets, and bathrooms with roll-top baths and original brass and copper plumbing. You'll find period shutters, flagstone floors, open fires and a fabulous top floor suite, Rook's Nest. However, there is no restaurant nor much in the way of public areas, so come prepared to eat out.”
