Comfortable traditional feeling rooms with lots of character downstairs, with a few eating and drinking choices, a spa, and modern well thought out bedrooms make Norton house a great mix. With it's location is so close to the airport they do a lot of corporate business and weddings but don't let this put you off. it's a great hotel offering peace and quiet only a few miles from the centre of town.
