Luxury Hotels in Edinburgh
From picturesque walks to delicious cocktails in the buzzing city centre, there’s something for everyone in Edinburgh. Whether you’re a fan of long country hikes or prefer soaking up the buzz of the city centre, Edinburgh is sure to satisfy every item on your holiday bucketlist.
Norton House Hotel & Spa is set in a beautiful countryside location with easy city links and roots all the way back to the 1800s. In every direction, you’ll find something new to admire – from breathtaking grounds to intricate, historical architecture. The sophisticated, grand building was first purchased in 1883 by John Usher, a prominent member of the famous Scottish brewing family.
The elaborate Renaissance porch is a surviving feature of this time, and throughout the rest of the house, a variety of different architectural eras can be found, forming an eclectic and attractive blend of styles from Jacobean to neo-Adam. For centuries, Norton has been known for its warm, welcoming energy, and with investment from Hand Picked Hotels, the mansion house with spa facilities is now equal parts elegant and comfortable. The perfect place for guests to indulge in rest and relaxation.
