What a pleasure staying at The Rutland. Its clean, tidy, with everything well placed in the room and plenty of storage. The staff are kind and helpful and the restaurant next door (Kyloe) does some seriously epic food!

Upon leaving, my husband declared it his favorite urban hotel. I concur. We stayed in Room 5 with a great view of the castle. The room was much larger than I expected so our bags and golf clubs were not in the way at all. Everything was very clean and we loved the muffins. We had no problem relaxing and... More

Stayed in the apartment at No 19 with my mother and 10 year old son for this memorable trip to Edinburgh as part of said mother's 70th birthday celebrations. First class accommodation and tremendous service. Very clean, very comfortable, very stylish and very reasonably priced in my opinion (very good value for money). The flexibility the apartment afforded with a... More

I stayed with 9 friends at this centrally located hotel. I researched quite a bit in advance and was not at all disappointed: Fantastic location and still no noise in the rooms. Breakfast was outstanding though I have to admit the service was pretty slow - we had to wait at least 30-45 minutes to get our orders served. We... More

On this repeat visit, I had occasion to complain about one aspect of the room. The manager was informed and acted immediately by transferring us to a newly refurbished serviced flat adjoining the main hotel. And, wow, what a flat it was! The ultimate in luxury and modern design. Nor did we have to pay for this considerable upgrade; not... More

Stumbled across this hotel whilst struggling to get a wee night away to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary and i am so glad we did. Great location for the shops and a short walk away from the Castle. Room was a great size and very modern. On arrival there was homemade muffins in the room plus a bottle of... More

We booked this hotel due to it's location in the centre of Edinburgh and proximity to Edinburgh Castle. It could not have been more perfect...everything was within walking distance. Some incredible restaurants and bars are close by too, we tried Tigerlily and Panda Panda and loved them both. The Hotel gave us a bottle of Proseco as we were celebrating... More

The word Boutique hotel gets much overused. Get in a named designer, create something a bit over the top, and up go the prices. This hotel does justify the label. It is simple; really just some rooms with a couple of restaurants on the ground and first floor. There are no other facilities. The rooms are well designed, although it... More

We stayed at the serviced apartment for my friends birthday. It was amazing, we had such a great experience. Firstly when we checked in the reception staff are really lovely and chatty, the room wasn't quite ready so they took us through to the bar and by the time we came back our bags were in our room. The apartment... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Rutland Hotel is set right in the heart of the city centre at the west end of Princes Street boasting exceptional views of Edinburgh Castle. An elegant boutique hotel with twelve beautifully appointed guest rooms and 1 stylish two-bedroom apartment with a private garden. By early summer 2014, we will have added another 2 two-bedroom and 2 one-bedroom apartments to the hotel’s accommodation – all designed to the highest luxurious standards. Our guests comfort and enjoyment is at the forefront of our minds with Arran Aromatics toiletries and Nespresso coffee machines coupled with little curios and a well-stocked mini bar in every room. The Rutland Hotel is also home to Kyloe Restaurant and Grill – a glorious gourmet steakhouse and The Huxley, a friendly, homely bar serving great burgers & dogs with carefully crafted cocktails. ... more   less
