I needed a room for just one night in a hotel close to The Royal Hallamsire Hospital. The Rutland is only a few yards up the road so was in an ideal location. The hotel is not bad, in fact there are some nice things about it, but I don't see how four stars can be warranted. The whole place is a maze of interconnecting corridors and staircases. It seems to be impossible to move from one location to another without going up AND down staircases, and there are no lifts. If you have any mobility problems, even slight, you may find this to be a problem. It is a particularly steep access from the rear, and larger, car park to reception. Although there is level access to the main entrance from the front, although this is not obvious as you approach from Sheffield City Centre. The parking spaces are also very narrow, and it is quite difficult to leave adequate space between reasonably large cars (family saloons). The bed was a rather strange affair. The mattress was good, but it lay on an unsprung wooden platform, the corners of which were quite a hazard to my shins in the rather small double room. The communal areas are clean and quite pleasant. The two meals that I had, dinner and breakfast, were both excellent and nicely presented. All of the staff that I met were pleasant, courteous and efficient. I found the hotel perfectly adequate, and reasonably priced for one night, but I think that I may have been disappointed had I been staying for leisure for a few nights.
