Our 2nd Hogmanay at Norwood Hall - the hotel has had a lot of refurbishment since our previous visit with the historic portion being given a sympathetic facelift. The bathrooms have been upgraded to a high level - ours included huge shower cubical, roll top bath, 2 sinks and finishing touch of a heated mirror. Our room felt cool in comparison to the reception/staircase areas which we're heated with 3 roaring log fires - this was sorted by a tel call which brought an extra electric heater.
The Gala evening overall was excellent - a couple of touches from the earlier visit were missing but the decor was beautiful, the candle candelabra table centres were stable and present longer than us. We were only a small group of 4 and made up a table of 11 - the others were about our offerings age and were delightful company - we would be comfortable to book again as a couple. I wasn't too keen on the ceilidh band - but - they had the ample new dancefloor packed so they were definitely a huge success.
The gala dinner and New Year's Day brunch couldn't be faulted - the staff were all very pleasant and keen to ensure everyone had a fine evening.
