Review | The Rutland Hotel And Apartments, Edinburgh

A couple of weeks ago, me and my boyfriend braved a 6 hour drive to visit the city of Edinburgh. I'm not gonna lie, it was painstakingly tiring to drive there. BUT... it was all worth it because the apartment that we got to stay in was absolutely amazing.

The Rutland Hotel and Apartments became our home for our weekend getaway. Situated next to Princes Street and a stone's throw away from Edinburgh Castle, it couldn't be more conveniently located. At first, we were really confused as to where the hotel was located because there weren't any obvious signs. But we soon realised that The Rutland was tucked within a series of townhouses on a quiet street.

We had the opportunity to stay in one of the hotel's luxury serviced apartments, No.17. When we entered the apartment, we were completely blown away - it was so big!

Lounge/Kitchen

I loved the design and interior of the lounge. Even though the decor was bright and quirky, it still held a sophisticated feel to it. I really liked how they filled out the room with huge wall arts like the Mohammed Ali and The Blues Brothers art piece. There's a fine line between trendy and tacky but Apartment No.17 completely nailed the whole concept of making a large room feel stylish and cosy. The open-plan kitchen was beautiful too! The dark oak units were beautifully complemented with black speckled worktops, and they were all fully stocked with all the utensils and crockery that you'd need to cook and eat with.

Bedroom

The spaciousness of the lounge carries on throughout the entire apartment. The bedroom also boasts the full-length windows and high ceilings, which were perfectly complemented with the ultra-comfy king sized bed. I normally hate four-poster beds because I find them a bit too extra, but as the ceilings were really high, the bed matched the room very well. Another great thing about the bedroom was that there were no shortages of mirrors. There was a full length free-standing mirror and a huge tri-fold mirror on the vanity table - what more can a girl want?! 

Complete with bright splashes of colour on the decor and pop art curtains, the bedroom followed the quirky theme of the lounge that we loved. I have to admit, we hardly spent any time in the lounge. After a day of exploring the city, the bedroom was where we spent the majority of our time. As the bed was so big and comfortable, we would just lay in bed and catch up on TV shows on the wall-mounted flat screen TV.

Bathroom

The bathroom was the most aesthetically pleasing bathroom I've ever set my foot in. I told my boyfriend that when we get a house together, he'd have to let me design the bathroom similar to Apartment No.17's bathroom. It featured a freestanding bath, a large rainfall shower and was finished off with a humongous wall mirror!

The Huxley

For breakfast, we headed over to The Huxley which was only a few steps away from The Rutland Hotel and Apartments. Whether you wanted something light or hearty to start your day off, The Huxley's breakfast menu had something for everyone. We obviously opted for the hearty options (I say "we" but really it was just myself). One morning, I ordered the full Scottish breakfast whilst Sat ordered the gluten-free version of it. It was nice and it did fill us up but I wasn't keen on the haggis and black pudding (it was my first time trying it). Another morning, I ordered not one but two sausage and potato scone breakfast rolls, whilst Sat went for a sausage and egg breakfast roll and a side of granola. Even though it was delicious, we did regret it shortly after because we were uncomfortably full and had a 6 hour drive back home to the Midlands.

All thanks to The Rutland Hotel And Apartments, we had a fantastic time in Edinburgh. It was our first time visiting the city and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay - it was like a home away from home! If there ever was another chance to come back to Edinburgh, we would definitely stay at The Rutland again.
