From check in to check out everything was 1st class. Staff are all extremely friendly and professional. Hotel is spotless with a great atmosphere. Rooms are immaculate. Enjoyed a private afternoon tea in the library for 12 of us. Sandwiches, cakes and warm fresh scones all absolutely delicious. Definitely recommend the Norwood Hall Hotel.

Stayed: March 2014, travelled with friends

From the first appt to book the Hotel as our venue our wedding planner could not have been more helpful or accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble for her and all of the staff at the hotel. We had a fantastic wedding their on 8th March 2014... they even arranged for the sun to shine! The Ballroom looked fantastic and the food was outstanding. The guest staying at night were delighted with their stay. Thank you staff at Norwood for making my daughters wedding a memorable day. I would definately recommend this hotel.

I can't say enough about the very professional and individual service that my new hubby and i received from the Norwood Hall Hotel in Aberdeen!!!! Our wedding co-ordinator couldn't have been friendlier, alongside the rest of the wonderful staff at the hotel! We had a fabulous day, and a cracking evening courtesy of the DJ from Elite promotions!!!!!!! The bedrooms were beautiful, very very very comfortable beds and nice and quiet for a peaceful nights sleep - which was very much required!! The food was amazing throughout and service could not be faulted! We woudl highly recommend the Norwood Hall Hotel for any event, short or long stay and will be returning for our anniversary - i hope!!!!! Many many thanks xxx

Room Tip: Any to be honest but for great views try one at the front of the hotel!

This is an old country house and has it's own grounds which make a lovely difference when one is arriving , plenty of parking.
Its situation is excellent if one is on business in south Aberdeen as the rush hour traffic is appalling in Aberdeen.
The welcome is friendly and the rooms are fine and have all the amenities. The service is also efficient and friendly.
The restaurant is pretty good but the menu is a bit small if one were staying for more than a couple of days. The quality of the food is really good though. The wine list is a bit on the expensive side. Breakfast is excellent.

I would return if in this neck of the woods again.

Had a most enjoyable weekend at The Norwood Hall Hotel which brought back fond memories when It was privately owned many years ago when last visited. Situated in its own grounds within a busy City Local in tranquil settings a 'Home from Home', the log fire as you entered has a warm welcome for a cold day. The rooms were Five Star and in pristine condition, The Tribute night that was organised in the Pitfodels Suite was Fantastic with the food and service Excellent to say the least! - Staff were very efficient and friendly in their smart Uniforms, what else can I say.

We'll be back!

Have stayed here a couple of times - have had a lovely stay each time. The attentive staff and beautiful rooms make the stay very enjoyable. The restaurant breakfast and dinner food is of a high standard and the general manager is obviously doing a great job.
