“Over the next three years we plan to embark on a significant refurbishment programme for the hotel, which will include extensive reparation works to the exterior and interior of the building.”

The Rutland Arms Hotel comprises of 46 bedrooms, a restaurant and bar, courtyard terrace, and conference and event facilities for up to 60 delegates.
