Welcome to Norton House Hotel & Spa

An elegant blend of the classic and the contemporary

As you pass the original stone gatehouse and journey along the tree-lined drive, between open fields, Norton House creates a striking first impression: an elegant blend of the classic and the contemporary.

Originally owned by the Ushers, the family behind Glenlivet Whisky and the Ushers Brewery, the house still has the appearance of a private country home. But, like one of the family’s finest malts, it has improved with age. As well as historic features, it is now a place of stylish dining, advanced business technology and 21st century comforts. 

This 1840 hotel is a romantic Scottish wedding venue and one of the best meeting venues in Edinburgh, thanks to its location, 5 minutes from Edinburgh Airport and 20 minutes from the city centre, and its tailored, all inclusive packages. Set alongside our hotel there is the Norton House Health Club & Spa, a great place to work out, relax or unwind.

Whatever the reason for your visit, we look forward to welcoming you and making you feel at home.
