Finally got round to writing a review having stayed for the third time! Have gone around bonfire night each time and have had a fantastic stay. Stayed in a Standard room the first stay, an Executive the second, and a Castle View in November 2014. Each time I was not disappointed by the size nor general cleanliness of the room.... More

First New Year in Edinburgh booked apartment in Rutland Hotel although expensive, when booked lots of hotels already booked up for New Years Eve so thought I'd go for it. The reception staff were very friendly and walked us further down Rutland Street to number 15 & into apartment 3. WOW! Amazing! The apartment was very large & beautifully decorated.... More

Fantastic hotel, stayed there for two nights in November in order to watch the rugby at Murrayfield. Lovely room, good breakfast and great service. Hotel is ideally placed for heading to the rugby, exploring Edinburgh castle and Princes Street gardens, or getting food and drink on George Street. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful at checkin. Loved the place... More

We stayed here for one night recently. We were given the biggest room in the hotel which had views of Edinburgh castle. It was very clean and comfortable. My only downside was that we paid an extra £10 to have breakfast included in our stay- got to the restaurant which serves breakfast and the most expensive item was £8.95 for... More

Booked a superb room at this hotel. From the cheery welcome from Hannah to the room, the service and food. All Fabulous! We were meeting up with our son for a meal in The Rutland's Kyloe Restauarant, so decided to stay overnight too! So central in Edinburgh, and yet room was nice and quiet at night.

I booked into The Rutland for a anniversary surprise and I was not disappointed! I chose the castle view room and the view from the window was outstanding and only added to the romance! The staff were extremely helpful and went out of their way to help make the weekend special. The facilities in the room were superb and it... More

We stayed in the first floor apartment. It is very spacious and the tall ceilings give it a sense of being very large. Loved the red-theme decor. Everything we needed in the kitchen. Very nice bathroom. Comfortable bed. We stayed here for four nights while getting our son settled at the University of Edinburgh. It is in a great location.... More

We stayed here on Wednesday 19th November in the Junior Suite and wow I was amazed from start to finish. The reception area is gorgeous and quirky in style with black and silver thrown like chairs and the girls on the desk were very pleasant and welcoming.
