I loved staying at Norman House in Stirling Terrace Albany. I had stayed there in 2001 for work and was looking forward to a short holiday stay in 2014. Yes, it could do with a bit of an update but the shabby chic is part of its charm. It is cosy, comfortable and convenient. The room I had was very... More

Too start with Thank You for taking great care of me Bert and Sheila. You were welcoming and friendly, just what I need after the car trip. Your place was charming and homely.

this is the second time I have stayed here and I love the homely feel. its not flashy and new but it is exceptionally clean. Bert and Sheila are friendly and helpful and Bert's cooked breakie is a treat. probably easily the best location for accommodation in town as everything is walking distance and the grounds are picturesque.

My wife and I travel to Albany at least twice a year for mixed business/vacation. We have stayed at a number of places but the last several times have booked with Norman House. Bert does the breakfasts in a quiet and unassuming manner. It does not pretend to have all the modcons of say a modern hotel but we find... More

Needs a massive re-do and new owners! People who like other people as guests! Do not advertise fresh fruit salad and serve horrible tinned stuff! The place is rundown! Did not enjoy myself and felt miserable there! Had been so looking forward to my stay there! Felt the owner really did not want me there and have to serve me... More

Stayed here recently and what an interesting b&b. Yes it's old (1850), quirky and dated but we enjoyed our stay. Beds and linen were both comfortable and everything was very clean. Our bathroom was separate from the room and there is no tv except in the 2 sitting rooms. Breakfast was either fruit, cereal, toast or fully cooked bacon and... More

Norman House is in a great location - an easy walk to the main street, and with views across to the bay. That alone makes it a good place to stay. The accommodation was comfortable and well presented, but just looked a little tired and in need of some tlc. Bert was a fairly subdued host, but he cooked a... More

My friend and I visited in September 2013. The house is very old style, large and roomy. It is decorated old style too. I think it could be renovated a bit. It was immaculately clean and the beds were comfortable. The area was quiet. Bert still runs the place. When you first meet him he seems cold but he quickly... More
