My wife and I have just returned from the Isle of Man Classic GP event, where we stayed for three nights at the Rutland. The staff are very pleasant and helpful, and the breakfast was plentiful and tasty. However, we paid extra for an "Executive" room with a sea view. There was nothing "executive" about this room , as together... More

We have just returned from a 5 day coach trip to the Isle of Man. We stayed at the Rutland Hotel, we were very pleasantly surprised. Our hotel room overlooked the sea, was very roomy and spotless. It had obviously been recently decorated and the bathroom was superb, being large and well equipped. The food was very good, especially the... More

My husband and I stayed at the Rutland as part of a coach holiday. The hotel was welcoming and the staff efficient and friendly. A lot of money has obviously been spent on upgrading the Victorian building. We did enjoy our holiday but if we stayed here again we would certainly select a front room! Even if we had to... More

We stayed at The Rutland as part of an Isle of Man package holiday. Whilst the hotel was chosen for us, the TripAdvisor reports were encouraging. The Rutland is situated halfway around the Douglas Promenades, equi distant from the town centre and the Manx Electric Railway terminus. The promenades are 2 miles long apparently, so be prepared for a lot... More

The Hotel can't be blamed for extremely hot weather but unfortunately with no air conditioning and windows that would only open about an inch sleep was impossible. The bed and the pillows were also average at best so in a fitful night it was extremely uncomfortable. Breakfast was also very average, when the bacon was cooked to produce a texture... More

The food was of a good standard and the bedroom was spacious we all the facilities we could want. The event... More

We recently returned from a 5 day stay at the Rutland Hotel. It was excellent in every way, our room was spotlessly clean and comfortable, food was very good and plentiful and the staff were very polite and friendly. I understand the Hotel was recently refurbished and you could definitely tell, everything looked brand new. The only niggle we had... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
One of the most elegant buildings on the Isle of Man, The Rutland is the latest addition to the Sleepwell Group. Following a multi-million pound refurbishment, The Rutland has been transformed into a stunning 64 bedroom hotel offering comfort, style and quality to both business and leisure customers. The Rutland is situated on the Queens Promenade in Douglas and enjoys beautiful panoramic views across Douglas Bay and is only a short walk to the town centre. Please note that due to the original architectural features of our Isle of Man Hotels, they are not suitable for any guests requiring 'Wheelchair' or 'Street level access', as all have external steps to access the hotel entrance. Proud winner of the 2008 Isle of Man Tourism Awards - Best Hotel of the Year. ... more   less
