We stayed at Norton House over New Year's. They had a set program for the celebration - 2 nights. The staff was very friendly and courteous. Everything was organized well for the celebration (afternoon tea, breakfast, new year dinner dance was included) and the food was excellent considering they served nearly 100 guests at the same time in the ballroom. We only had a chance to eat at the brasserie because the other formal restaurant was closed but the food was outstanding and the service was prompt. Staff in the restaurant are not knowledgeable about whiskys though.
The rooms were very nice, clean, and updated (we stayed at the Hilton Caledonian in Edinburgh - this is comparable). The heated floors in the bathroom are nice. We were in the super new part - and there really arent that many rooms but it's so spacious it feels like there are more rooms. Internet was REALLY expensive. Room service for breakfast is nice, they'll deliver to your room with no extra service charge and no inflated prices, so you could have breakfast in your room.
Spa wasnt open at that time unfortunately but it looked super nice.
We wanted to stay at a castle over new year's but we booked too late, but this was a nice alternative - very typical 'country house' setting on pretty grounds, and it's nice that it was so close to Edinburgh.
