The Rook’s Nest is a two-storey penthouse suite with views over St Paul’s and the Old Bailey from its 40ft spire. The bedroom is dominated by a marvellously ornate bed flanked at each corner by a gilded blackamoor. A huge Victorian bathing machine sits on a raised plinth behind lace curtains in one corner of the room. A dog-leg staircase leads you upstairs to an extraordinary sitting room under the spire. The room is fully air-conditioned with complimentary wi-fi internet access, flat screen LCD television and DVD player both upstairs and downstairs. The sitting room also has a stereo system, dining table, antique lawyer’s desk, mini-bar and safe.
