A recent stay at the Rutland as part of a University reunion shows that it can be a bit of a curate's egg. I.e. some good things and some less good.
The communal areas, bar etc. were clean tidy and welcoming, as were the staff. The breakfast was tasty and good quality.
So how about the room? I booked a single which was very small, with space for a bed, small wardrobe and desk but had an en-suite bathroom that was as big as the room! The bathroom was very attractive with stone tiles etc. and was very clean with no signs of damp etc. The bed was comfy and the room temperature comfortable. The TV was attached to the side of the wardrobe and is probably the world's slowest TV - click a button on the remote to change channel etc. and wait 5 seconds for the channel actually to change!
So my conclusion - if you are in a group of friends etc. and are likely to spend more time out of your room than in it, a single is not too bad. If you are a family group/business traveller wanting to spend more time in your room then I cannot recommend a single room.
