The room my sister and I stayed in, number 1, was enormous! I believe it was handicapped accessible which made a couple things odd - the sink was very low and very small in the bathroom. However the rest of the room was fantastic. Breakfast very plentiful and included and the staff very helpful and accommodating.

We had checked The Rutland out before booking it, so was hoping for good things, but our expectations were exceeded over and over again. From first arriving, welcomed by one of their excellent staff, right through our visit, we were absolutely delighted. The accommodation is boutique, very individual, very well looked after and their partner bars and restaurants and outstanding... More

We booked the Rutland to celebrate my husband's 65th birthday. I specifically requested a bathroom - and what a bathroom! Jacuzzi bath, hubby was so pleased..... We were made very welcome, all the staff we met were friendly and warm. Our room also had a great view of the Castle and despite the central location on Princes Street we couldn't... More

My partner surprised me with a visit to Edinburgh on my birthday. The Rutland Hotel was his choice, it was a real treat and did not disappoint. He had informed them of my birthday and we arrived to complementary bubbly with a lovely note wishing us a great stay. We were shown to our room by friendly, attentive staff. The... More

Just spent three nights at The Rutland Hotel and highly recommend it. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We were upgraded to a junior suite with space galore and a view of Edinburgh Castle. The hotel's location in the West End is fabulous -- walking distance to the Castle, great restaurants and the bus that goes to the Britannia... More

Staying at this hotel in Sept 2014. Hotel is well located. You can walk to the Edinburgh Palace (maybe 30 minutes walk), International Convention Center (10 minutes walk), etc. Ride from airport by taxi is not bad (about 20 min/25 pounds). Executive rooms have strangely shaped rooms with some decent views (though windows are old and can barely see through... More

Celebrating our silver wedding we were delighted to find on arrival a chilled bottled of with delicious muffins. We stayed in the junior suite which was spacious with lovely views of the castle. The staff were very helpful and friendly couldn't have been more welcoming. The location is ideal and close to shops, bars, restaurants etc. The bed very comfortable... More

We only stayed here one night after our tour of the Scottish countryside. We arrived at 2pm but the room was not ready yet (understandable). Left the luggage and had a nice light, simple lunch at the Hoxton and returned shortly after 3pm when the room was to be ready by. Our bags had already been delivered which was a... More

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!
