I was so impressed with our room it was spacious and very modern and elegantly decorated. The staff were so friendly and happy to help.

On a side note, the added extra touches in the room don't hurt either, freshly baked muffins,proper coffee, a ghd straightener and the most lovely shampoo and conditioner.

We will be back

I took my very picky partner here as a surprise for his 29th birthday and I can honestly say we were both incredibly happy with everything this hotel had to offer.
Service was excellent, very friendly and we were even shown around our room at arrival.
The room was beautiful and very clean. It offered a lot of extras such as GHDs (great for the ladies so ypu dont have to bring yours with you!), lovely wrapped fresh muffins on the bed, bluetooth speakers in the room which you can connect your phone/ipod to and even a complimentary bottle of bubbly free on arrival due to it being my partners birthday!
They have 20% off all food and drink in the downstairs bar (which we took advantage of) and offer 20% off a future stay which is sent via email after your visit.
I can honestly say I cannot wait to return!
Thank you to the Rutland and especially the two extremely helpful girls at the reception desk.

Stayed one night for an anniversary and were not disappointed. Room was lovely, very big with great views of the castle, great products in the large bathroom and ghd straighteners also in the room. Lots of extras in the mini fridge(at a cost though!) muffins were nice tough however extra for the tiny box of chocolates which I thought should have been included in room price.
Great bar on ground floor which serves a lovely breakfast in the morning, staff even brought our drinks to the room for us to enjoy whist getting ready to go out for dinner,husband went down to get a drink to bring to room and was told they would bring up for us, great service. Very central for bars/restaurants and shops. Very friendly and helpful staff, would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Superior room 11 had fantastic views

I stayed in the hotel for two nights for my fiancée 30th birthday and from the moment we arrived to check in I knew this was a magical little boutique hotel . The lobby was small but very clean with funky furniture and decor and beautiful flowers . The reception staff were very friendly throughout our stay helping with directions and general info .. We staying in room 10 a castle view room which did not disappoint the view of the castle was amazing . The room itself was a lovely size with a huge comfortable bed . The decor in the room was also very modern with a fab chandelier lovely dressing table and a large chair . The complimentary muffins in the room were a lovely touch and tasted lovely .. Bathroom was spacious and clean with great products . The location of the hotel is great a short walk to wherever u need to go . Thanks to the hotel staff for the card and prosecco in the room for my fiancée 30th birthday was a really nice touch . We also had a fab meal in kyloe which I would def recommend if your staying in the hotel . Thanks again for a great stay will def stay again next time I'm in edinburgh.

We traveled with a family of 6, my wife and 4 children (21,19,17 and 13), and we stayed at the serviced apartment at the Rutland. It is right down the road from the hotel lobby. The accommodations were great, as was the location. Easy walking distance to everything. Very modern furnishings and very nice decorations. Staff was very helpful with any questions we had around activities and restaurant options.

We stayed here in June this year. Excellent hotel located right at the end of Princes Street which is the main shopping street of Edinburgh. From an accommodation perspective, rooms are very very comfortable and well stocked. The bath has an in-built jacuzzi and is spacious. The check-in process was smooth and the ladies at the reception are very helpful. The hotel also has two restaurants that are always buzzing.

The only little negative is that location is not old town. It is about a 15 mins walk from the Castle / Royal Mile. However, it is on Princes Street right close to the Gardens which is probably the 2nd best location. It is a 10 min Walk from Waverley station.

We absolutely love this hotel. Staff are very friendly, room is very clean and comfortable. Love the idea that they even have a hair straightener (a GHD) in the room as well! Welcome gift is a nice touch. Each one of us receive a muffin (even the baby).

Staff are very thoughtful, saw that we have a baby with us, and prepared a baby cot in the room, when i forgot to request for it.

Love the food at the restaurant, too. The steak is highly recommended!

Would love to stay here again one day!
