My husband and I stayed one night at Norton House to celebrate the fact that I had just started maternity leave. We arrived mid-afternoon and were greeted by friendly reception staff and escorted to our room (an executive room in the new build extension). The room was fantastic, complete with balcony although we didn't use this as it was a tad chilly. There was a wedding on in the Garden Suite which is nearby and above the spa but if we hadn't been told that then to be honest I don't think we would have known.
I had a treatment booked in the spa - it was perfect from beginning to end - I was so relaxed by it i nearly fell asleep several times! My husband used the gym and said it was all very good and clean. We then both used the pool area and my husband took advantage of the steam room, sauna, hydro pool and said all were great. The spa really does have that tranquil atmosphere that it should.
We had dinner in the brasserie, it was absolutely delicious food and I can't praise the staff highly enough for the service. The brasserie is also where you have breakfast and again, we couldn't fault the service. The breakfast itself was also delicious.
The only slight disappointment was that the bed was slightly too soft but then I do like a very firm mattress.
We can't wait to find another excuse to stay here!
