“Excellent Hotel, can't wait to go back”
Reviewed 6 October 2009

Just returned from an overnight stay at Norton House. We stayed in the contemporary deluxe room on the top floor (Edinburgh Suite). The room was fantastic, its not pictured on the website but was suggested to me by reservations, and I'm so glad they did. Huge wrap around balcony with table and chairs, lovely sitting area, gorgeous furniture and a fantastic bed. The bathroom was great, complete with telly and separate bath and shower. We used the facilities which were second to none. Excellent pool, sauna and steamroom, as well as a great hydrotherapy pool. We ate in the brasserie which was very good, as was breakfast. The staff were all lovely and the service was great. Can't wait to go back

We got married at Norton House last October and returned for our 1st wedding anniversary. We stayed in one of the junior suites in the new part of the hotel, which is amazing. It's duplex suite with bed & bathroom downstairs with further bathroom and seating area upstairs! The tilevision TV in the bathroom is great novelty too!
We used pool which is lovely with fancy jacuzzi pool. As we don't have kids I do appreciate that kids swimming time is limited as it means that pool area is calm & quiet, especially since it's a spa hotel.
We ate in Brasserie which was lovely tho quite expensive for wine, over £6 per glass.
Only problem we had was that we made our dinner reservation with reservation dept but they hadn't passed it on to restaurant. Not a problem though as hotel were able to accomodate us.
We have really lovely stay and really didn't want to leave!! We will definitely be back.

Stayed at this hotel in September for a long weekend. Paid a little extra to eat in Ushers Restaurant on the Saturday night very nice food brilliant service pricey wine!! Ate in the Brasserie following evening was also excellent great choice from menu well presented food and good to eat. The pool/gym is great at this venue, have stayed at the Woodhall/Spa and the pool there much smaller. Jacuzzi, steam room and sauna all great.

Situated in a nice quiet location. The rooms are very clean and very well equipped. We had a tv in the bathroom!
The pool area in the Spa is a nice size.
I thing I would say before getting there, is if you would like any treatments in the Spa, to book them in advanced. To avoid disappointment.

We have just spent 3 nights at the Norton House Hotel. On arrival we experienced great service from the staff, ample parking, room brilliant, plenty of tea and coffee and fresh milk, complementary water, clean and tidy and a large flat screen TV!

Breakfast was excellent and we ate in the brasserie twice and on both occasions the meal was great - staff friendly and good service.

The pool and spa facilities are also brilliant - good sized pool and not very busy.

You can get a bus into Edinburgh at the top of the drive (4 min walk) for £1.20 each way or taxi is just £17 - if you want to stay out of the city this is an excellent hotel to pick.

We stayed in the new contemporary wing at the Norton house in July last year and enjoyed our experience. We checked in really late at night but found the staff very helpful with the check in and they even helped carry our bags to the room at that late hour.
The breakfast was a good spread ... though I must admit that the breakfast area could be moved to one of the other restaurants they have within the hotel as it seemed to be struggling with the no of people and we had to wait for a table to be free before we could eat!

That said the spa is blissful and the property in itself offers a nice relaxing getaway.
Would return again if I went back up to Scotland again.

Rooms are a good size, as is the pool and spa area. Shame about the restaurant food, eaten here a few times and its never very good - go into town!
