We stayed in the hotel overnight after my sons wedding. Room was large, nicely furnished and very comfortable. Breakfast next morning was in the conservatory section of the restaurant where wedding guests were all directed to the same area away from other hotel guests in main section. This was nice as we could all meet and chat about the wedding without taking over the restaurant. Food and service at breakfast was also first class. Enfoyed our stay.

Thank you for your review. Whilst I am disappointed to read that our usual high standards were not in place during your stay, please be assured that your comments will be passed on to the Health Club team. Our swimming pool area has just undergone a full refurbishment in the last month, so I am confident that should you return, your faith in Norton House Hotel & Spa will be fully restored.

Good Country House type hotel to west of Edinburgh

Nice comfortable hotel which has been extended with a lot of thought. Some items are obviously expensive but have been chosen for looks rather than engineering excellence. Lots of pleasant staff who do their best to make an excellent stay. A number of long corridors mean that you need to be fairly fit but lifts are provided where required.

Quality hotel with excellent staff

Pros: The overall look and feel of the hotel.
Cons: The room's windows were drafty but the curtains helped block this
I hadn't realised that the hotel is part of the Handpicked Hotel group and so it was a lovely surprise when we got to the hotel to find I had chosen such a nice hotel at the last minute. The staff were friendly and professional and the room beautiful.

1 overnight stay at Norton House

Loved our stay at Norton House. Lovely hotel, so pleased that we chose to book there. Staff were lovely and very courteous and helpful. We had a classic room, which was very clean and great decor - comfy bed and pillows, slept brilliantly. Used the leisure facilities - which we thought were great (gym and pool, hydro-pool etc). On our return journey we realised that my partner left his jacket by accident, needn't have worried about it as on reporting the loss they reported that they had found it and would post it on - so big thank you to whoever it was that found it for us and to all other staff that helped us enjoy our stay! We will definitely return.

Once night stop for spa break

Excellent hotel to stay in but i think it needed a music player in the room though as there was a DVD player but who carries them with them nowadays! Only one music channel to listen to on the freeview! Good choice of food, although expensive when it didn't need to be, our waiter didn't have very good English when we asked him what an item was on the menu! Room was clean, bed was very comfy, ground were well maintained and clean and tidy. The spa experience was very good and we really liked the relaxation room where both of us feel asleep so easily. Having a pool in the hotel is a brilliant idea, when it's not too busy, and having both a sauna and steam room was great for choice where I wanted to go in the sauna and she wanted to go in the stream room. We both really enjoyed ourselves in the hydrotherapy pool and didn't want to get out!! Would recommend and I would go back again.

A biased four stars

I guess I fell in love with the place about 7 years ago at a friends wedding. The staff overally very friendly and attentive.. Had an incident with housekeeping, my room cleaned when I had clearly indicated that I didn't want it to.. But these things happen. The location is perfect if you want to just chill out and relax so not so good if you wanna be active in the city centre, for me it suited my requirements. Dinning at the hotel was good,enjoyed my mills. The spa experience is recommended and that was one of my reasons for this particular booking. One thing is that the bar area has limited seating so a bit of an issue on a busy day..

Hotel Grand Luxe pour prix raisonnable

Pros: Le centre de bien être, vraiment TOP ! le buffet petit déjeuner
Cons: Avoir des barmans tous au même niveau et des whisky a prix plus raisonnable.
Location: C'est a 5 minutes de l'aéroport en voiture, et on se retrouve dans la campagne écossaise. C'est un bon moyen pour rayonner dans la région. P+R a 5 min
J'étais sceptique quant à l'hôtel au vu du prix payé, mais nous n'avons pas été déçus. L'hôtel a un charme british incroyable, le personnel est aux petits soins, et les équipements sont impressionnants. Le centre de bien être, même s'il faut sortir de l'hôtel pour y accéder, est très bien équipé et immense, et surtout inclus dans le prix de la chambre. Tout comme le petit-déjeuner qui est un buffet très bien fourni et fort appétissant. Le bar est un endroit où il fait bon se reposer et siroter un whisky (mais fort cher au demeurant). Par contre, Barman changeant et parfois on tombe moins bien... Le resto est très bien, mais la carte est la même tous les jours et ça manque donc de renouvellement, mais c'est vraiment pour chipoter :)
