The Rutland Hotel is set in a fantastic location less than a minutes walk from Princes Street and only a few minutes from many of Edinburghs lovely attraction and eateries.
We, as a family, booked three rooms and found them all to be clean but very cold on arrival.
In one room the TV was temperamental at best and the shower seal above the bath was broken which meant that the bathroom floor got soaked each time you had a shower. The other rooms were fine in this regard.
The lack of a residents bar was disappointing as it meant a family with kids under 18 are effectively confined to their rooms whilst in their hotel. Having swapped a few e mails prior to booking I did feel this could have been pointed out in the course of our correspondence rather than when we were headed for the public bar attached to the hotel.
Room service was prompt and mini bar well stocked. The in room snacks plentiful although fairly expensive for what they were.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. Overall the experience was a bit disappointing and the treat of a boutique hotel failed to live up to expectations.
