For me, the location was crucial because I had some business to do in Broomhill and at University and both are in close walking distance. Furthermore, the currently very hip Ecclesall Road is not too far away and I had some very good breakfast and dinner down there. Therefore, the Rutland was the perfect base camp in terms of location.
Staff was very friendly and I liked the design of the lobby. My room was also very quiet and I had no problems turning off the air condition (and opening the window instead). The only backdraw, as some people said, were that my room was very small and that my mattress was pretty much done. On the other hand, my bathroom was newly renovated and in excellent condition. I already considered taking my laptop and sitting in the bathroom instead... :-)
In summary, I thought the positive aspects outweigh the negative aspects. It´s definitely not the worst hotel as somebody suggested and I didn´t mind the small room size. Only the worn out mattress could be a knock out criterion for people with back issues.
