Review of Norton House Hotel, near Edinburgh, Scotland:
This is a really excellent hotel, for leisure guests, weddings and conference groups.
It’s located near the beautiful city of Edinburgh with different options to visit
the city centre, for example by car, taxi or park-and-ride. Its also very convenient
for Edinburgh Airport, although the sounds of aircraft are certainly not intrusive
for guests staying at the hotel.
The people who work there are absolutely amazing. They seem to anticipate guests’
needs and provide some of the best world-class service that I’ve experienced in any
of the hotels I’ve visited, anywhere in the world.
The Spa, gymnasium and pool are absolutely first class, too, with a sauna and steam
room, as well.
The food, whether its taken in Ushers restaurant, the Brasserie or room service,
is tremendous. It’s beautifully prepared and presented.
I had a junior suite, which is over two floors, with the bedroom on the ground floor,
with a separate en-suite shower and bath room, plus a seating and desk areas. Up
the stairs is a very large further seating area, with another shower room, which
has a huge walk-in shower. It was pure luxury.
The hotel management have organised everything so well, with seamless, world-class
service throughout both times I stayed there.
