Check into a Scottish hotel praised by Harper's Bazaar for its "perfect blend of traditional Victorian elegance and modern luxuries," and save more than 45% on the usual rate. Rooms at the award-winning Norton House Hotel & Spa, a 4-star country manor just outside Edinburgh, are now $159 (£99) per room.
The deal includes accommodations for two with an upgrade to an Executive Room on booking, full Scottish breakfast and a $16 (£10) spa voucher per person.
This deal is valid through January 2013.
Part of the Hand Picked Hotels portfolio, which has just been named AA Hotel Group of the Year, Norton House is home to the 3-AA-Rosette Ushers Restaurant and a spa that has been awarded four bubbles by The Good Spa Guide. Guests get full use of the health club and spa facilities during their stay, plus £10 per person to spend on treatments.
The country house hotel won the AA Hotel of the Year Award for Scotland in 2010 and is a 20-minute drive from Edinburgh city center. Explore the 55-acre grounds or visit nearby attractions such as Edinburgh Castle, the extinct volcano at Arthur's Seat, Holyrood Palace, and Linlithgow Palace and Loch. Edinburgh topped The Guardian's Reader Travel Awards as the Best UK City for the 13th year running this week.
