I stayed at this hotel with my partner in January 2011 for 3 nights as a surprise for his birthday :-)
On arrival the hotel staff could not have been more helpful and friendly, and the check in process was very quick, and we were then shown to our room.
The room all I can say is WOW! I chose the Castle View Room, and it was as every bit as spectacular as the pictures on the website and the other reviews I had read on here. The room is a very good size, and has everything you could need available, from an ironing board and iron to GHD hair straighteners! There is tea and coffee facilties in the room and you are provided with fresh milk everyday, along with lovely butter shortbread biscuits :-)
The bathroom was very big, with a big bath and an over bath rainfall shower and there was always lots of hot water. Nice range of complimentary toiletries, especially the hand soap and nice big towels.
The room had a large flat screen tv on the wall and the room has surround sound speakers in the ceiling. This means you can ut music on and listen to it through the speakers in the bathroom! All controlled from a pad on the wall.
As for the bed, it was HUGE! We both agreed it was the most comfortable bed we had ever slept in and found it a struglle to get out of bed the first morning. We did manage to get out of bed and made it down for breakfast in the Rutland Bar. Nice simple breakfast selection, and all that we choose was delicious and of a high quality.
Throughout the stay the staff were friendly, courteous and efficient. Working myself with the general public it was refreshing to receive such excellent service.
Would we stay again? Try and stop us! I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel whatsoever.
Well done Rutland Hotel for an excellent product and service.
