Have to say that this is a quirky old hotel. Right in Newmarket centre. Such a trek to the room but just adds to what this hotel is. Breakfast used to be cooked to order but has changed to buffet. Not very hot or great standard. However will go back does need money spent car park is a joke.

I stayed here for two nights. When I checked in I found out that the kitchen was closed and no hot food could be provided. That wasn't helpful on a bed and breakfast booking. The hotel provided a continental breakfast. The standard was shocking - one toaster and a queue for that across the room, and small boxes of cereal.... More

Yes the room was a little tatty and clearly 'freshened up' by staff but the room was absolutely fine lovely view over courtyard through sash window. The food from the restaurant was delicious, breakfast was fantastic- very unorganised on second day buffet style breakfast but again it was lovely. Staff are fantastic, chambermaids were helpful and friendly. Location is superb.... More

We stayed for three nights whilst we were in England for a family funeral. At first glance, Both the reception area and the rooms appeared to be rather smart, in a fairly traditional sense. However, closer inspection shows that the rooms are in need of re-decorating at the very least, and the cleaning needs to be far more rigorous. Equally... More

Carpets clearly haven't been replaced since Charles ll last visited the place. Had to leave a trail of crumbs to try and find my room again. Thought I was going to have to cut and shut my car to get it in and out of the car park. Decor consisted of sellotape to stick the wallpaper back on, a bathroom... More

We stayed for one night. The hotel is a bit of a warren, but the rooms are clean and the staff friendly and helpful. The breakfast was excellent and substantial. The locations is perfect, right in the centre of town.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Where history and hospitality combine.This 17th Century former Coaching Inn is at the top of the High Street in the heart of the vibrant racing town of Newmarket.The Hotel has a rich and vibrant history and has continued to offer the highest levels of service and hospitality throughout the years. The motto on the coat of arms, 'pour y parvenir' meaning 'to attain or succeed', underpins everything at the Rutland Arms.The Hotel is built around a cobbled courtyard that dates back to the 17th century reign of Charles II and now has 46 individually decorated bedrooms.The distinctive and attractive building retains many of the original period features adding to the charm and character of the Rutland Arms.For early risers, a morning stroll to the gallops is something not to be missed. Watching the horses out on exercise certainly builds up an appetite for a hearty breakfast.The Nell Gwynn bar is an ideal meeting place for morning coffee, drinks, lunch or a traditional afternoon tea. After a day at the races, celebrate in style with a drink in the wine bar and dinner in the award-winning Carriages Restaurant. ... more   less
