What we liked about the Rutland Hotel is its proximity to Edinburgh Castle as well as to the Royal Mile and the main shopping streets. They are all just a few minutes walk away. The interiors of the hotel are also quite artistically put together, making it a boutique hotel. There aren't many rooms, just 12 so you will have to reserve early to get a room.
The staff are very friendly and very helpful. We stayed in room number 9 which meant an extra walk up a flight of stairs as the elevators only reach as far as the second level. We didn't mind this at all as it meant a better view of the main street below our room as well as the perpendicular street facing it.
The food is good too. The Rutland Bar on the Ground Floor is probably one of Edinburgh's most popular bars as it always had a good amount of people. We found the cuisine to be quite good. On our last night, we ate at their restaurant which is at the first floor. The food was good although it was unfortunate that there was a mix-up in communication. The lobby staff had informed us that there was a discount for hotel guests and so when we ordered dinner, we chose two for twenty offer. Two courses for Twenty Pounds. We totally enjoyed the meal but the bummer was when the bill came, they told us the special hotel guest discount didn't apply to the two for twenty as that was already a promo. We called the restaurant manager who was nice enough to sort things out. Such misunderstandings could have been avoided had they simply printed it in the menu that special discounts for hotel guests don't go with other promos. Oh well, it was a damper on such an interesting visit to Edinburgh and our stay in such a nice hotel. Except for that everything went well with our stay at the Rutland.
