My daughter and her husband were married here on Easter Weekend. We arrived on the Thursday before just to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings and the spa. From the moment we arrived the staff could not do enough for us. From afternoon tea for 8 in our room to the little things that we had forgotten to bring nothing... More

Lovely room, food, grounds and staff. Comfy big bed, nice bathroom, bathrobes, tea and coffee, fresh milk and water in the fridge (only 1 pack of biccys!) Room was chilly so we put the heating on but it kept clicking off which was a bit of a pain. Spa looks fab but is separate from the hotel so you can't... More

From check in to check out, Norton House was amazing! Our check in was quick and informative, our room huge, clean and had everything you would need (underfloor hearing and tv in bathroom a bonus!) Spa area was immaculate and relaxing, a lovely treat to end a busy day in Edinburgh city. Get this on your list of places to... More

This spa hotel was in good proximity to Edinburgh airport - less than 5 minutes by cab. Reception staff were warm, shame about the rest of the staff. We were greeted warmly by a gentleman who took our bags inside while we paid for the cab. Check in begins at 3pm and we arrived just before so were able to... More

Yes the bar area was full of business meetings, but I was left in piece and served a delicious light lunch with coffees as required until my tow bar had been fitted. A short walk over the railway bridge and a few hundred yards up the a country road is worth the effort. Enjoy.

What can I say. This is a really decent hotel. There's nothing I can fault. The staff, the room, the hotel itself, the gym and spa are all top draw. The food is amazing, bit more than I'd usually spend but not complaining. The Scotish hospitality is second to none. Would love to come back.

Generally I enjoy staying at the Norton House Hotel, but this time there were a few niggles. As always the service was both excellent yet warm and friendly, it is always a pleasure to stay in the Norton House. My wife and I stayed for two nights.
