The Rutland sits on the corner of Lothian Road and the West End of Princes Street in Edinburgh, a few years ago this was a beautiful spot but today it is blighted by the misgotten tram project. The lack of traffic does make it remarkably quiet, except in the bar which is too noisy for old farts like me, "up for the rugby" and we won at last.
I was brought up in Edinburgh and remember the Rutland as the poor neighbour to the Caledonian next door. Having stayed in both over the past year I have to say the Rutland is a better bet and value for money.
The location is effectively the same with instant access to central Edinburgh but the welcome is warmer, the rooms as comfortable and a shower to die for.
The breakfast was well prepared but odd sitting in the bar to eat it. My only downside was being deafened in the bar and going next dooe to the Caledonian for a quiet beer.
Walking distance to Rose Street means bars and restaurant selection is enormous and up to the highest standard anywhere in the World. With the Castle as the backdrop to the hotel where could be better for a break or business.
