Another amazing stay at Andrew and Revas little gem! My husband and I stayed here for the second time in July, this time taking our 5 month old baby with us. We had an amazing stay yet again, I forgot to write a review last year! Blackawton village is beautiful, tucked away off the usual tourist trail and so peaceful... More

My fiancé and I stayed here by chance after our original hotel in Ilfracombe turned out to be a dive and we left after one night! Not wanting to come home early, we found The Normandy Arms on last minute.com. We turned up early and were happy waiting in the car admiring the surroundings but the owner noticed us sat... More

We stayed at the Normandy Arms in February as a couple. The place was amazing, in a very quiet town. The reception, restaurant and rooms were all beautiful and everything was spotlessly clean. The food was incredible and they had a lovely selection of drinks. The staff were so friendly and helped us plan our days out with local recommendations... More

The restaurants we had wanted to try were full so we searched for an alternative & came across an Independent review praising this place. Tucked away in a tiny village 'tween Totnes & Dartmouth, this was a wonderful find. A roaring fire welcomed us on a very cold evening and the staff were friendly & casually attentive. On to the...

Our recent 4 night stay at the Normandy Arms was just a perfect treat. The room was very spacious and well appointed. Great bathroom with great upmarket touches and amazingly large shower - ideal for those who are over 6ft tall !! The king sized bed was very comfy with the addition of a super king duvet - just right... More

We had a truly relaxing stay at The Normandy Arms, The rooms were tastefully decorated, a very comfortable bed and a large en-suite shower room. Following a good night’s sleep – an excellent breakfast with plenty of choice, from fresh fruit salad, yoghurt, eggs benedict to full English! The perfect start to any day! The location could not have been... More

Dropped in for an early evening beer which was served way too cold and way too expensive. Obviously catering more for foodies there's no excuse for not serving the beer at the incorrect temperature. Neglected beer garden across the road obviously once had a good selection of herbs but someone's hacked them to bits.

As for the herb garden i would like to point out that it is a well used herb garden, we take herbs fresh... More

Went along to The Normandy Arms for an evening meal last night, not expecting much only to be very pleasantly surprised on every level. The decor is warm and inviting just like the landlady and the food was probably one of the best meals I've had in a long time. Every course was beautifully presented and faultless - I can... More

This is such a wonderful change to the soulless hotels available.The rooms are well decorated, clean and extremely comfortable. The restaurant provides a beautiful selection of food to choose from prepared by an outstanding chef. Even the breakfast is perfect. The level of care and attention by the staff/team is faultless. This is a fantastic find where you can enjoy... More
