Great location. Check-in was a bit odd. We had to find someone in the bar to go to Registration which was behind a locked door. Then the directions for the hotel parking could have been a lot clearer to save us time, as well as how to find our rooms from the parking lot.....up a flight of stairs. But once we got to our rooms, all was well.

Great location, huge room which sadly was very hot when we arrived. Two large closed windows had had the sun streaming through all day. Opened the windows to let in some air but noise from bar later on so had to close again. There was a ceiling fan but didn’t make a lot of difference

The room was comfortable and the food outstanding (Breakfast and Dinner). The Rutland will be our intended stay, on our next visit. Well Done...

Rutland Arms november 2019

Excellent location, delightful rooms, great wifi, terrific bathroom and very good food. Wide range of craft beers but rather restricted wine list - but very good food match. Innovative and well-executed dishes served by excellent staff. There was at least 1 zero alcohol beer, but no zero alcohol wines . The continental breakfast included in the cost of the room was very satisfying in quantity and quality and was served very well. Spacious and comfortable bar/dining area with masses of nick-nacks to attract the eye. Good parking. No lift and rather awkward stairs for those with limited mobility, however, and no bathrobes (not really needed on such a warm night). Will certainly stay again.
