My husband and I stayed at the Rutland Hotel for two nights. As it was our first visit to Edinburgh city, we wanted to ensure we stayed at a location in walking distance to all major attractions. As the Rutland hotel is across the street from St. Cuthbert, St. John's and Edinburgh Castle, it was the perfect location for a... More

I had a junior suite booked for me as a treat for my 60th birthday. Very pleasant staff in receptions. Hotel was in a lovely area and the window in our room although a little high looked over Edinburgh castle which at night was a wonderful view. Room was fabulous with everything provided from Nespresso coffee machine, ironing board and... More

Fantastic location, beautifully designed and comfortable bedrooms, efficient and friendly staff. We had dinner in Kyloe which was one of the best meals I have had (I had scallops then Chateaubriand) with wonderful staff. Breakfast was in the Huxley which again was delicious. Highly recommend staying here.

We booked to stay here for 1 night last week- we stayed in a standard room, and it was certainly more than adequate! Some nice touches like jacuzzi bath, GHD straighteners, real iron and ironing board and Bluetooth speakers. There were a few niggily issues- couldn't log on to the wifi and no hot water in sink (but shower/bath fine).... More

We booked a junior suite through Mr & Mrs smith website however upon check in were kindly upgraded to a one bedroom flat! After a brief walk down the road we were shown to our flat for the weekend (apartment 3). The decor was vibrant and in keeping with the high ceiling and windows. We had a large kitchen and... More

After looking at hotel prices for the weekend we wanted to visit Edinburgh, which were inflated because of the International Rugby, I decided I'd rather pay a bit extra for somewhere special, rather than double the price for a run-of-the-mill hotel. I've been looking forward to staying at The Rutland, as I love its style, and they did not disappoint.... More

We stayed at The Rutland for two nights in February to celebrate our wedding anniversary and cannot recommend this hotel enough. The room and service was fantastic and the little extras really made our stay. We were treated to a complimentary bottle of prosecco for our anniversary - aspects such as this and the homemade muffins on arrival really made... More

Stayed at this hotel in October 2014. Fab location! Couldn't fault anything. The staff on reception were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very big and the bed was the biggest I've ever been in! Very clean room and bathroom although the shower wasn't very powerful. Loved the little extras such as being able to connect phone to the... More
