“Needs some work!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2007

Room was fine for the middle of Tenby. The area is very convenient for discovering the town.
The corridors were a little worrying, if ever there was a fire, I'd get lost. The way out is not obvious!
Breakfast in the morning was good....apart from the smell of bleach. I wish they could have left cleaning the bar area until breakfast was over!

I stayed for 4 nights and apart from a little noise from next door I found everything
else excellent.A large and well furnished room,an excellent choice of food ,well
cooked and very generous amounts.All the staff were very attentive happy and
helpful even allowing me to use the back entrance to make my walking to the bus
station shorter,I will return.

Stayed there for 1 night on 13th May.

The rooms are first class - very comfortable, spacious and clean, but at £80 pernight including breakfast you would expect something special.

The staff are a bit laid back but were helpful and we got everything we needed. As there is no reception you have to ask the bar staff if you want anything. Tip - walk around the back of the bar to speak to them instad of queing up at the bar.

The breakfast was very good - a full breakfast and help yourself to toast ceral etc..

I would advise you to stay on the top floor as the bar can be noisey. I didn't have a problem sleeping but the bar and street below can be noisy.

There's no parking so best to park in the multi-storey in town - £2 for 24 hours. Its a 5 - 10 minute walk away.

I would recommend drinking in the Buckeneer and eating in the Bay Tree around the corner.

I would stay there again.

Stayed at the Normandie for 2 nights over Easter 2006. The web site for this establishment makes no mention of the fact that there are no car parks nearby and traffic movement within the confines of the inner walls of Tenby is an absolute nightmare! This meant us having to carry our luggage quite a distance from the North car park. However, our room (No 3) was spacious, clean and nicely decorated.

The Normandie has many tv screens spread throughout the downstairs bars, all tuned to Sky Sports and is generally very busy, especially during the evenings. Unfortunately, because of its central location, it is virtually impossible to sleep here due to the noise from the street below. This can go on until 3 am!

£80 a night for our room was a bit over the top considering there was nowhere to park. All in all, I would rather stay at a larger hotel with better facilities and the likelihood of being able to sleep at night!
