Lovely hotel, we had an executive room in the new wing of the hotel and it was beautiful. Spacious and comfortable, our milk was sour in the fridge and they were very quick in bringing a fresh carton to the room. The tv in the bathroom was fab and it was very relaxing watching Wimbledon whilst chilling in a bubble...

Thank for posting a review of Norton House after your recent stay with us. I was delighted to read how much you enjoyed so many aspects of our hotel. The TVs in the bathrooms are a real touch of luxury and go down very well with many of our guests. Please accept my apologies for the milk in the fridge...

This was a nice stay in a lovely hotel. We were offered an upgrade to a suite for an extra £20 upon check in. This was an amazingly spacious room with a lovely view of the garden. The restaurant was nice enough, but the service was a little slow. The spa was also well worth a visit too!

Wonderful and relaxing spa treatments with very nice & highly qualified therapists. Hotel facility's are brilliant. Not sure how we got such an amazing upgrade but was a fabulous day/ night, surprise for my husbands 40th. Dinner in the bar was very good food & excellent service.. I could not find a fault with this hotel.

What a beautiful hotel! So incredibly close to the airport - makes a perfect spot to stay if you have an early flight out the next morning. Not super close to Edinburgh downtown, but a L20 cab ride will get you there. Really picturesque long drive up to the hotel. Lovely rooms look exactly as pictured on the website. Super...

Great room in the old house, comfy and clean and blissfully quiet. Too late for the restaurant as I was a late arrival but room service swift and tasty. Bar comfortable but staff keen to close up well in advance of advertised opening time. Great location, ideal for a schlep into Edinburgh on the trams (about 35 - 40 mins)...

I seem to be making a habit of being on delayed flights that get in late leading to late night arrivals at nice hotels! Norton House Hotel offered a very comfortable overnight stop. Nice big bed with an excess of pillows and a random toy cat, lovely setting for a morning run and just what I needed. Will be back...

Norton house has been extensively renovated since my last visit 10 years ago. Rooms are well appointed with modern bathrooms and are comfortable. Gardens are fantastic and well worth a walk. Staff are pleasant and happy to help. Very close to the airport and a short journey into the city

Visited Norton House yesterday with my sister for a spa day. Nice drive up to the hotel which sits in nice surroundings. Staff friendly and helpful and in particular would like to say therapist Kirsty gave me a fantastic massage. All in all a fantastic day was had and no faults highlighted.
