We've been to the lovely Norton House restaurant manyf times including the fabulous Ushers. Also a wedding some time ago, and Sunday lunches half a dozen times. However, this time we introduced some friends and found the whole experience most disappointing. Firstly we arrived and sat in the lounge adjoining the restaurant at an uncleared table which remained that way...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 17 January 2017 via mobile

Having visited the Norton House Hotel several times for spa treatments and been impressed by the facilities we had no hesitation in booking in overnight when attending a friend's family celebration. To say we were impressed is an understatement. The event was excellent. Service, food and the setting were superb. While within easy travelling distance of Edinburgh and near to...

We stayed overnight after a flight in to Edinburgh airport. What a lovely hotel! Our room was so nice and the bed was very comfy. Breakfast was delicious, the fruit smoothie hit the spot. Staff were excellent too. Hope to return for a longer stay and to sample the dinner menu.

A very nice traditional hotel in country surroundings close to the airport with friendly staff and an excellent response to a pre advised dietary issue. Some internal fixtures starting to look a bit worn though. The food didn't quite live up to expectation. Broccoli soup was excessively thick more like custard and the goats cheese topping refused to melt into...

Hotel looks nice from the outside but the inside needs a lot of work. Carpets looked gross with many years of gunk piled on. Super far from the city. Taxi cost almost 30 pounds. The only good thing was the nice breakfast and nice staff

Near perfect. Peaceful, relaxed, informal and welcoming. Food great value for money £18.95 for set lunch menu. Modern British. Service excemplary. A retreat to the conservatory for coffee so relaxing I almost feel asleep. Not a place to rush through lunch but rather take your time and saviour the atmosphere.
