Both myself and my husband run businesses that are 24/7 and any down time is hugely precious.

We had our first day off since early May and booked a night away at The Rutland’s apartment hotel.

There is plenty of parking outside the hotel though the charges are pretty eye watering but very much the norm in Edinburgh. You can pay by Ringo if you’ve got the App or good old one pound coins will do the job - you’ll need a fair few!

You are across the way from Princes Street with a huge array of restaurants and coffee shops to pick from. The Rutland Hotel has The Huxley and Kyloe to choose from to catch a bite to eat. Both very acceptable, the staff are warm and friendly and the food is great. They make a great cup of coffee and breakfast is good in The Huxley.

I cannot fault our apartment - it was spotlessly clean and stocked with a Nespresso coffee machine with milk in the fridge, which was a bonus. The decor was quirky, fun, practical and well put together. Plenty of mirrors and the light is such that you can easily apply make up, which is some hotels is hard to do, because it can be so dark.

The bed was comfy, the sofa was comfy, the bathroom was lovely and big with a separate large shower and a big bath. GHD hair dryer and straighteners was a bonus and I’ve gone and bought a GHD hair dryer on my return home, because it was so good! As a side line they don’t offer fans for the rooms and there is no air conditioning but all the windows open up to let in fresh air. I’d suggest opening the windows up at the back of the apartment as it’s quiet, with little noise. It genuinely is a great place to spend a night and unwind.

We were on the first floor, I’ve got a dodgy knee but I managed up and down with little problem. There are no lifts. I asked the receptionist if it’s possible to request a ground floor apartment and she was incredibly helpful and suggested to do the booking by phone to make sure that the request was possible.

You really get the feeling that they want you to have a great time. They are rightly proud of what they are offering and it shows because they have such a nice can do attitude.

This is the first of many visits to this wonderful place - it honestly is a wee gem!

Loved my stay at this hotel, the staff were very friendly, the junior suite was spacious, clean and had a view of the castle. The room decor was warm and easy on the eye. The staff were extremely helpful with direction and suggestions. I would definitely go back there again.

We stayed here for one night as a gift from our daughters as part of our golden wedding celebration. Front the moment we checked in the service was great. We stayed in room 10 which is on the 3rd floor and meant climbing some stairs since the lift only goes to the 2nd floor but this wasn't a problem even though we are both in our late seventies. The room was first class with a welcome gift of wine and chocolate from the hotel. Breakfast in the Huxley was very good and overall the staff and service made our stay memorable. Will definitely be back

Had room 9, nice spacious and modern. Great view of the daily hustle and bustle below but high enough not to hear it! Great central location. Staff very friendly and helpful. Hotel very smartly furnished.

Had breakfast downstairs in the Huxley which was very tasty and plentiful.

Lovely stay, lovely city. Would defo return to this hotel.

We only had a night here but thoroughly enjoyed it. Great service from the moment we walked in, and they organised for our enormous luggage collection to be sent up to our room while we headed out to enjoy the city.

We loved the room, great size, enormous bed, and the Nespresso in the room and the thoughtful toiletries were a treat. We expected a bit of noise due to it being located on a busy intersection but we think they have done very well with noise insulation and we slept well. The breakfast in the morning was delicious as was the coffee and it was nice to choose off the menu.

Perfectly positioned to explore Edinburgh, and extremely good value. Looking forward to coming back here.
