“Nice Place To Be”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

The Normandie Hotel & Conference Centre is very nice, the front desk staff, very helpful and friendly, the dining room staff very polite and helpful the breakfast was not of my liking as there is not much variety the fruit is good and the pastries ohh so good. It is a good quiet hotel to stay and have some alone time and be at peace.

Room Tip: I love room 101 it is cozy and secluded and you can just be at peace

The grand name of this mostly charming little hotel was misleading. I was expecting a generic conference center style hotel. Far from it, this hotel has old world charm, and yes, a slightly worn look to it. But in this style hotel, that slightly worn look is part of its charm.

The rooms are nice, The pool looked nice (not time to swim).

The restaurant is good, and the service is very good.

It gives you a tropical feel in an area of TT which does not.

I've stayed at the Normandie many times over the past few years. I've always loved the design and feel of the place - and the staff have always been very friendly, welcoming and helpful - but it was getting tired and a bit shabby. Visiting again, I have been so impressed with the improvements: redecorations, nice little gym added, a welcome drink on arrival and a new menu.
The staff are as lovely as ever - but even more attentive. Small but well selected changes have put the Normandie back in a class of its own - Trini, quirky and a great place to stay.

Most surprisingly, I had a lovely experience today at the Normandie's afternoon tea service. Food was fresh, desserts were divine and service was wonderful. Hats off to Gregory, his warm, easy going style makes you feel right at home. And his colleagues were no slouches in their service either. I agree that the building needs improvement, but you can clearly see that they are upgrading the facilities.

I had a comfortable stay and their rooms are amazing. There waiters at the restaurant are very polite. They have wonderful room service. The pool was nice as well. The people at the desk are also quite reasonable. I would totally stay here again.

This must have been a wonderful hotel, in its day. However not now. Old, a little dirty and in need of a make over. Breakfast was average, service average, location reasonable. We checked in very late and were served by someone who should not be allowed to deal with the public.

Room Tip: Not a good choice. Pricey too
