Surrounded by 55 acres of grounds, Norton House is an elegant country manor on the outskirts of Edinburgh, 20 minutes from the city centre by car. You can also hop on a bus, which runs into Edinburgh and then on to Leith -- it stops right outside the hotel. The location is also very convenient for the airport and Edinburgh Zoo, both 10 minutes’ drive away.
Having held its 3 AA Rosettes for nine years, Ushers restaurant is a fine-dining Edinburgh favourite. As The AA Restaurant Guide says, “everything looks beautiful on the plate -- and it certainly doesn't disappoint in the eating either”. There’s also a brasserie for modern Scottish fare, and light bites are available in the Conservatory Lounge or Drawing Room (10am-10pm). Even the cooked-to-order full Scottish breakfast is a treat, but save some room for afternoon tea -- the hotel is lauded for its crumbly scones, homemade tarts and finger sandwiches.
The hotel also has an excellent spa, awarded five bubbles by The Good Spa Guide. It is situated just across from the 19th-century mansion and has its own tranquil Zen garden. Try out the sauna, steam room or experience showers or book in for a treatment -- there is a long list of facials, massages and wraps. Those looking for more of a workout can use the gym or turn a few laps in the 18-metre indoor pool. Guests can stroll across in their robes, or there are changing rooms on site.
Chic rooms have sleek furniture, Art Deco style and contemporary prints on the walls. Free Wi-Fi access is provided across all room types and you’ll find free bottled water in the fridge. Upgrade to an Executive Room or suite for superior in-room amenities, including a TV in the bathroom.
