I travel a good bit and hotels are often a mixed bag. Questionable hotel with great staff. Great hotel with questionable staff etc. The Norton House gets it all right. You feel like you are staying at Dowton Abbey. Large comfortable rooms. Outstanding breakfast buffet. Beautiful grounds with walking paths. Kind, helpful staff. Interesting, talkative bartenders. It was enjoyable from... More

As I have Coeliac disease, afternoon tea is not always an easy option for me. However, our Celebratory Afternoon Tea, complete with a glass of champagne, was a huge success - delicious tiny sandwiches, scones with home made strawberry jam and clotted cream, and a selection of freshly made cakes. My husband was equally delighted with his 'normal' share.

Friend and I visited the Spa last week We were there for the day enjoying the facilities, having 2 treatments each and afternoon tea. Staff are very professional and friendly. Nothing too much trouble for them. On arrival we were shown round the facilities and issued with towels, robes and slippers. We had booked the treatments at times to suit... More

We had the privileged of attending our good friends daughter's wedding on Saturday. This hotel is within easy access of the M8,the M9, the Airport and it is only a few miles from the city centre but it felt you were in the heart of the glorious Scottish country side.

This was a surprise start to our holiday for my wife's birthday. We couldn't fault the hotel in any way, with very comfortable rooms, excellent shower. superb restaurant (we ate in the Brasserie, which is the basic option), and very good spa facilities. I think the spa is open to the public through membership, but it was never overly busy,... More

We stayed in this hotel for a delightful two nights while touring UK. It's biggest drawback (but perhaps also an asset) is it's quiet location in a manor setting somewhat remote from Edinburgh. The exterior looks like an old manor house, but the interior has been thoroughly redone. The public areas and rooms are tasteful and modern. Guest rooms and... More

Stayed in this hotel for 4 nights and it was absolutely brilliant!! A bit difficult to find the first time but once you get the hang of it, then no problem. I simply loved the blend of old and new. The mansion from the outside gives the impression of an old building but the rooms are ultra-modern and very comfortable.... More

Our group (3 couples touring Britain for 4 weeks) were blown away by everything about our stay at this hotel. A wonderfully restored/upgraded old home set in well-maintained bucolic surrounds. Rooms were large (from our experience), very well appointed, beds very comfortable, food was above average, but the service and attention of the staff was excellent. The country-style location was...
