    We stayed at The Rutland Arms for our wedding and found the Hotel very clean and comfortable. The staff were very helpful and friendly and made us feel very welcome including our dog Tommy. The room was set up for us beautifully and Hazel the wedding planner was brilliant so a big thanks to her. We visit Bakewell regularly and will be back to see you again. Many thanks once again.

  • Kelly

    Our wedding at The Rutland Arms Hotel was fabulous from start to finish. We stayed for two nights and we held our wedding reception in the Emerald Room. The staff offered great service, and the bedrooms were lovely, clean and spacious. The wedding breakfast was delicious and the meal in the Square Restaurant the night before our wedding was absolutely superb. We will definitely be staying again!

  • Bride

    We got married at The Rutland Arms with a ceremony of just 22 people! The wedding planner Hazel was brilliant, she sorted everything out for us and was there on the day, right up until the food was about to be served. Nothing spoiled our wedding weekend and we much appreciated the effects everyone went to. I would not hesitate to stay here again as the rooms are beautiful and the food is absolutely delicious. Thank you again for making our wedding so special!

    We had our wedding reception at The Rutland Arms in September and we were looked after so well - everything went perfectly. I couldn't thank The Rutland Arms Hotel and the staff here more!
