The Rockwell aims for relaxed contemporary elegance – and succeeds magnificently. The listed premises mean there are no identikit rooms here: they’re all different sizes and individually designed, but share gleaming woods and muted glowing colours alongside more sober creams and neutrals.
Among the rooms, pleasing eccentricities include a pair of central single rooms with skylights, and basement garden rooms that have tiny patios, complete with garden furniture, looking up at the ground-level bridge that leads on to the garden terrace proper from the handsome bar-restaurant.
Each room has a power shower, Starck fittings and bespoke cabinets in the bathrooms, and triple-glazing ensures you never notice the noisy road just outside.
