“Fantastic!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2012

Just come back from a trip to Edinburgh with eight friends for my Hen weekend,and could not fault The Rutland Hotel.Five of us stayed in the apartment and the other four in the hotel and the moment we arrived,the staff couldn't do enough for us,they were helpful and very friendly especially Claire:)who looked after our every need.The rooms were funky and modern and very clean and we absolutely loved the apartment,only a stones throw away from princes street and all the shops which was perfect for us.we also ate at the restaurant "kyloe" and this was also outstanding,we were treated amazing and had the best table in the restaurant as it was a special occasion!A top quality hotel and a fabulous weekend,couldn't of asked for anymore and will definitely be returning!

Needed somewhere special for a short break to Edinburgh and this seemed to tick all the boxes. It was a little more than we usually spend but was so well worth it. First impressions weren't great from the outside but the quaint boutique style reception appealed to us along with the friendly and efficient checking in and then we were shown to our room. The location was perfect and walking distance to the centre of town. Nothing was too much trouble and the castle view room was well worth paying the extra for. The decor was outstanding, modern and quirky. Plenty of extra such as cookies, muffins, water, etc etc. On the 2nd night the heating packed up but this was soon sorted. The only other query was they asked if this was a special occasion and I said it was my birthday but didn't receive anything like other reviewers have described. Also, there is a free breakfast offer on here but I couldn't get it due to not printing off the voucher!!??
The moans aside, the experience of staying here still deserves 5 stars and would even stretch to 6 if I could just for the meal (20% off for guests). THE STEAKS ARE FANTASTIC!!!! All the staff were superb from reception, to housekeeping and to bar/restaurant staff.
The quality of sleep was superb and never noticed the roadworks going on until you go outside.
Would definitely recommend and be back!
Thank you Rutland Hotel!

Room Tip: choose a castle view room!

What a great place - we stayed in the apartment for two days, and felt like Edinburgh royalty. Fab location for all the touristy things to do, amazing decor and facilities, and a superb bar and restaurant in the hotel - what more could you ask for. Remember your walking shoes - Edinburgh is infamous for its hills. We shall definitely return.

Room Tip: The apartment has two stunning bedrooms - each one is stunning.

Stayed here for my 50th birthday. Room was beautiful, staff were lovely. I received a delicious bottle of Prosecco when staff discovered it was my birthday. Guests receive a 20% discount when dining in the restaurant which offers among other things a variety of steaks. (restaurant is decorated in cow print ) and there is a life size cow sticking through the window facing on to the main street. Bedroom was tastefully decorated, with robes supplied and Arran Aromatic toiletries in the bathroom. Two delicious beautifully wrapped muffins also awaited.We had printed off a voucher for a free breakfast from the Tripadvisor website and we were able to enjoy a great breakfast the next morning (eggs Benedict is highly recommended) Dotted along the corridors and also in the reception area are some very ornate pieces of furniture which I would describe as quirky and well worth checking out. I would definitely recommend staying in this hotel and hope to go back later in the year.

Just a quick review on our recent stay at the Rutland Hotel, Edinburgh and what a wonderful hotel it was.
From the moment we (fiancee & I) entertered we felt at home, the staff were really friendly & helpful & the hotel decor was amazing.
A "must stay" for any upcoming interior designer.. We are both in the process of renovating our house in Dublin and both stole so many design ideas including the techy in room entertainment system by Audica.

Anyway, enough of my ramblings.. great hotel, central, friendly, comfy rooms, super staff & great breakfast.

Room Tip: look at the pictures on their website..
