Reviewed 14 July 2013

my wife and I really liked the hotel. clean ,tidy.the staff were very welcoming.the evening meal we had was very nice and plenty of.nice beer garden where we had a few drinks before setting off into tenby.BUT when we got back into the room for the night the only bit of negative we experienced started. the church bells rang every hour...half hour...and a bit more .also seagulls were very noisy.hardly any sleep

Stayed here for 2 nights as a surprise for my wife's birthday. Very welcoming on arrival which created a good impression. Our room was ready early and we found it to be very comfortable. Only ate once downstairs, lunch and the Calamari was excellent with my wife having the rump steak baguette, again excellent. Breakfast proved to be the same. Overall an extremely enjoyable stay and will definitely return.

My family and I visited this pub for a meal to celebrate my 31st birthday. The signs outside promised home cooked food with excellent service..the appeal was obvious. After waiting 20 mins for a table we were finally seated and we placed our food order. Over th3 next 45 mins my family and I waited patiently for our food to arrive..when it didnt my father approached the bar maid to enquire the reason for the delay..the order is in the kitchen and your food will be served shortly. After a further 15mins there was no update so I approached the bar...the same bar maid snapped that she had already provided us with an update...My patience had run out and I retorted with I want an answer as to when the food will be served as we had an eight and two year old with us. The bar grabbed an order sheet and asked me to repeat our food order...I refused and demanded an immediate response from the Manager. Within minutes a man approached our table and advised they had lost our order and had spent the last 40 mins looking for it.....stupidity and moronity personified. In recompense we were offered a full refund with "a load of alcoholic drinks" thrown in....not really befitting a family eh? What a lousy excuse of basic customer service. Steer well clear.

My partner and I travelled to Tenby for a well deserved long weekend. The location of the Normandie is perfect, very central, but the nightclub downstairs (cleverly disguised as a restaurant during the day) went on until 1am Sunday morning at such a loud level that it felt like we had the speakers in our room. Friday night had been loud but not as bad as Saturday. The music went off at 1am but the revellers outside (drunken youngsters) didn't move on until nearer 4am - they spent the next 3 hours outside calling each other, and generally keeping us awake for the whole night. There was no one to call from our room as it really is a pub with rooms rather than a hotel so we just had to lie there and wait for the morning! Big shame as we liked the place, the room was good and the breakfast was lovely. Not really fair of the management to rent rooms out to guests when the place is turned into a thumping nightclub with no regard for music volume at night.

Room Tip: go somewhere quieter...

After having read the reviews I was doubtful about staying at the Normandie, but It was recommended by a friend. They serve great pub food,the rooms were spacious and clean, I understand they have recently been refurbished! yes it can be noisy on a weekend but then it is a lively pub in the centre of town. I can't imagine booking a place like the Normandie for my honeymoon or taking my children there but if you want a fun few nights away it's a great place to stay.

Ive seen cleaner carpet in derelect houses than was on the stairs .Was scared to put hand on bannister rail it was filthy same as walls. Bedroom furniture would have been ok after a good scrub downwith sugar soap, it was so sticky. Dressing table stool was coverd in long blonde hairs, so was carpet.I am sure the room had not been vaccumed for weeks. The bathroom window had clear glass in it , not frosted and didnt even have net curtain up to it. The noise was horrendous ,unable to sleep until the place closed in the early hours because there were no handles on the windows to be able to shut out some of the noise.The curtains were ripped and hanging off the rail.
Breakfast was served between 9 and 10am we were told but when we arrived a few minutes after 9oclock there was no sign of life anywhere. Then a man came in and a few minutes later told us the cook had not turned up but he would do breakfast for us.
I could go on for quite some time about this place if i had more time. Haven`t even mentioned the bar area. I just do not understand why or how it is still being advertised on the internet and at such outrageous rates. Does no one inspect these places anymore. I would have thought there should be strict regulations.Goodness knows what our foreign visitors must think. Be warned dont fall for the photos, steer well clear, its filthy.
