The Rutland Hotel was the second stop on our honeymoon and my wife and I couldn't be more pleased with the hotel. The hotel is detail oriented in every way - fresh bottled water every day, hair curlers, terrific toiletries, great coffee etc (with fresh milk rather than powdered creamer). Every staff member was warm, friendly and helpful - always... More

Very clean and quiet room, didn't know we were right in the centre of Edinburgh! Staff could not be more helpful or better dressed. We need to go back to try the steak house, but The Huxley was nice and relaxed with great food. Overall we came out feeling refreshed and very happy :D

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at The Rutland Hotel. We had to drop luggage off early which was no problem at all. They kindly stored our luggage in safe place next to reception until we returned in the afternoon to check in. On check in we where shown to our room (castle room no 11). The muffins in... More

Nice townhouse hotel in a central location. Our room was spacious with a large comfortable bed. Though located at a busy road junction and with bars nearby there was no road or street noise and even internally it was so quiet we would hardly have known there was anyone else staying - though I believe they were actually full. The... More

I was so impressed with our room it was spacious and very modern and elegantly decorated. The staff were so friendly and happy to help. On a side note, the added extra touches in the room don't hurt either, freshly baked muffins,proper coffee, a ghd straightener and the most lovely shampoo and conditioner. We will be back

I took my very picky partner here as a surprise for his 29th birthday and I can honestly say we were both incredibly happy with everything this hotel had to offer. Service was excellent, very friendly and we were even shown around our room at arrival. The room was beautiful and very clean. It offered a lot of extras such... More

I stayed in the hotel for two nights for my fiancée 30th birthday and from the moment we arrived to check in I knew this was a magical little boutique hotel . The lobby was small but very clean with funky furniture and decor and beautiful flowers . The reception staff were very friendly throughout our stay helping with directions... More

We traveled with a family of 6, my wife and 4 children (21,19,17 and 13), and we stayed at the serviced apartment at the Rutland. It is right down the road from the hotel lobby. The accommodations were great, as was the location. Easy walking distance to everything. Very modern furnishings and very nice decorations. Staff was very helpful with... More

We stayed here in June this year. Excellent hotel located right at the end of Princes Street which is the main shopping street of Edinburgh. From an accommodation perspective, rooms are very very comfortable and well stocked. The bath has an in-built jacuzzi and is spacious. The check-in process was smooth and the ladies at the reception are very helpful.... 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
