Very good 8.0
Broken Glass on bathroom floor ruined my stay
I was really looking forward to a two day break in London with our fifth stay at the Rookery. Unfortunately our room although comfortable had not been adequately cleaned and I cut my foot on broken glass on the bathroom floor! On closer inspection we found three large shards of glass but not before I sustained a deep injury. I was advised by the reception desk that management would email me, but 24 hours later I’ve not heard a thing. It ruined our weekend and we had to call off our plans for the day and our restaurant reservations and planned theatre visit because every time I walked on my foot it reopened the cut. I’m now home early and resting up for two more days having cancelled more events for another two days. Miserable end to the year because of broken glass!

Good 6.0
Beautiful hotel and really pleasant staff. A full length mirror in the bedroom would have been useful. Also it was impossible to sit down to dry your hair owning to the mirror/desk/position of power point/length of hairdryer flex combination. The room was very atmospherically lit, however it was impossible to see to put makeup on and I ended up having to take the shade off one of the bedside lamps to get a bit more light! Minor irritations that a bit of thought on the part of the owners would easily sort out.
