We have just returned from a 4 day break in Edinburgh where we stayed at the Rutland Hotel. I cannot find fault with anything during our stay. The location was superb. We over looked Princes Street and were a 10 minute walk from the castle. Our room was lovely. We were shown to our room personally by the receptionist and... More

I have no faults for this Hotel, accommodation was first class - rooms & restaurant/reception/bar area all decorated and kept beautifully. Service was great with both girls on reception being extremely helpful - also room service was very quick! We had the romance package which I would definitely recommend to other couples on a special occasion. Overall we had a... More

We stayed there for 1 night and were very impressed. The staff were superb and extremely helpful. We had lunch at Kyloe, which I would highly recommend, before checking in. The room was great - good size, all the accessories and Bluetooth speakers throughout. The location was great as v close to the main train station and a short walk... More

There are so many positives from our stay at the Rutland. Check in was very friendly and straightforward – we got there too early but the receptionist was only too keen to take our luggage, which was placed in our room (we were upgraded to Junior Suite) on returning from a quick shopping spree. The room was great, hitting the... More

We booked the apartment at the Rutland hotel for an overnight stay at the end of March as a surprise for my sister to celebrate her 50th birthday. It sleeps up to 5 & we were a party of 5 girls. The apartment is only a few doors down from the hotel itself & is in a great location, handy... More

We booked a Junior Suite for an overnight stay in Edinburgh. The girls on the Reception desk were very welcoming and helpful and suggested places for us to go on our first visit to the city. A bottle of bubbly was provided in our room to help us celebrate our Silver Wedding Anniversary, which was an unexpected but much-appreciated nice... More

We have just returned from a break away in Edinburgh at the Ruthland hotel. We stayed in a junior suite and loved it! Beautiful room and bathroom - we particularly loved the sound system where we could hook up our iphone via bluetooth. The sound went through the whole room and bathroom.

Bit disappointed with our stay at the Rutland, booked a junior suite, but can only describe it as an attic room, our view of the castle was from the smallest window possible that we did not have full access to as there was a wall protruding covering most of the window. Getting booked in at reception took forever even though... More

The Rutland is a small hotel with only 12 bedrooms. It is snuck down a side street at the end of Princes Street. Very pleasant welcome and having read other reviews I should point out there is no doorman to help with the luggage as there is in the Cavendish opposite, but I suspect it is reflectively cheaper. However it... More

This was a pleasant hotel to stay in Edinburgh. We were across from Princess Street, so it was in a good location. Our room was spacious, stylish, and clean (rm 4). And even though it was on a busy street, the room was quiet. The greeting at the front desk upon arrival was welcoming and helpful with suggestions on what... More
