“Albany in comfort”
Reviewed 4 August 2012

This accommodation was booked 'sight unseen' for a work trip. But what an excellent choice! Do you like B&Bs? Albany? Being warm, comfortable and an opportunity to enjoy a fantastic freshly prepared/cooked brekky? You want to stay here! One night wasn't long enough and I am planning a return trip soon.

Majestic old building - furnished with love. Comfy beds with the best linen EVER, new en-suites and the most beautiful garden. This place is a real gem.

Norman House is a warm, homely B & B in the heart of Albany within walking distance to the harbour, shops and restaurants. Bert & Sheila (the owners) are exceptionally friendly & welcoming. The rooms are very comfortable with all the amenities of a hotel but without the coldness you might experience at a franchised establishment. Sheila provided good tips for where to eat and we came back later in the night to a nice wood fire in the reading room. Bert is a great cook and provided a hearty hot breakfast to order. You would pay $20 for a 'big breakfast' equivalent at a Perth Cafe. Overall, we had a lovely stay and strongly recommend Norman House to anyone who is looking for homely accommodation close to all the action in Albany.

Norman House was a treat to stay. Its an old house built in the Victorian Style and a B&B worth every penny for our stay. Its right in the heart of Albany town with close access to the Albany Port and the Royal Princess Fortress. Had initially scheduled to stay for two nights, but extended for one more night and was absolutely humbled by the hospitality shown by BERT & SHEILA (Caretakers of Norman House). Definitely recommend this B&B which has a cozy atmosphere inside with a library, games room, separate lounge room to relax. Rooms are pretty big with cleanliness next to nothing. Bert's Breakfast was the highlight of our stay and we were treated to some wonderful English Style cooking.
Wish to go back to the same place again.

Highly impressed!!!!!!!!
Thanks to BERT & SHEILA.

Have returned to Norman House annually since discovering it four years ago whilst on a golfing trip to Albany.
Conveniently located, within walking distance to the central shopping district , bars and restaurants Norman House is ideal for those who enjoy a glass of wine with their evening me.al without having to worry about the hazards of driving home.
Charming rooms, generous in size and spotlessly clean, wonderful hosts in Shiela and Bert who go out of their way to make your stay a pleasant one and who provide a breakfast to die for
I have no hesitation in recommending Norman House and would award it the highest rating

Its an old historical house with a really nice atmosphere, We have travelled a fair bit & our 18 & 16 year old kids are more accustomed to the resort/hotel type thing & its pretty hard to get them to go anywhere because everything is "boring".
Norman house was an interesting change to their expectations, our family was actually interested in the place & had fun without a tv or pc. We sat together at sunset upstairs and talked! before walking to a nearby restaurant, after which we broused the bookshelves, went our own ways & soaked up the quiet peacefull mood of the house, there are plenty of little spots for some alone time. Our son commented on how comfortable he felt. The kids even read in bed, the wife was relaxed all was good (happy wife happy life). & Bert is a real wiz in the kitchen breakfast was the icing on the cake.

Room Tip: If your wife has just climbed Bluff knoll get a downstairs room.

Had to go to Albany on Business over night & sick & tired of doggy motels I
Decided to stay on the Water Front in Down town Albany at Norman House a really
old two storey home that has become a very chic B & B walking
distance to Shops & Restaurants Coffee Shops & Bars. Very Clean & Traditional English
Decor & each room as been decorated very elegantly.
Looking forward to my next visit to Albany to stay with the wonderful caretakers Burt & Sheila
& experience some more of Burts great home cooking & friendly atmosphere not to mention the terrific view of the Bay.
