“good location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Situated in upper frog street you are in the heart of the town everthing is on the door step.
There is a large car park about 200 yards down the road with access to the inn from the rear no need to push your way through the crowds. rooms where cumfy but the furniture was a little tired. our shower put water anywhere but where it was required. breakfast was ok but nothing special coffee not so good. If you just want somewhere to sleep and are not to fussy then there are worse places to stay

Basically a smelly pub. Couldn't sleep all night, as the music was so loud downstairs and punters shouting all night.
The only reason we booked to stay at the Normandie is because there was nowhere else left to stay in Tenby, as we late booked.
The breakfast was very nice. Full english.
We had two rooms one in which the door would not lock. Discussed with a member of staff and nothing was done about it.
Rooms basic.
For what we had it is very over priced
I will not be visiting the Normandie any time soon.

A very dirty place. bad beer. Don't think they have cleaned their pipes in a long time. elbows were sticking to the table and had to peel menus off the table. Toilets made up our minds to walk out.
The front entrance looks good. avoid walking through the door.

Have just returned from the Normandie after celebrating my husband and elderly mother's birthday and all I can say is what a great welcome we had. Yes I agree with other reviewers that the Hotel side needs redecorating but our rooms were large, clean and even though we were overlooking the street were quiet. People wih walking difficulties will find it hard because of the amount of stairs to get to the bedrooms but it's central location is second to none. The gentleman when we arrived was so wonderful. pointing out the nearest carpark ( two pounds 24 hrs) and was always obliging. The barman in the night called Danny was funny, efficient and the service was excellent. Our breakfast consisted of what you wanted. Freshly cooked to order and served hot and mouthwatering.

Room Tip: We had rooms 6 and 7. Quiet when we went but probably a bit noisier full deason. Give the Irish bar...

This was easily the biggest mistake I've made! Stayed here for a few nights with my boyfriend. The staff were rude, full of atitude (even the 50 odd year old man) and didn't look like or seem they want to be there! The music was blaring at all hours, even when they didn't have any customers down stairs and even on a Monday night! The rooms were disgusting... We even had to ask for fresh towels and loo roll.. The cups they supplied for 'room refreshments' were caked in grease and dust. The mattress was a cheap and nasty old fashioned piece and so uncomfortable. We didn't even have a quilt just a 'hospital sheet' and a granny throw.. no quilt!!!!! There was holes and burns in the curtains and nets, the room was freezing and the shower was a task to turn on! The breakfast was a disgrace! We had to ask for our milk and orange juice, and the plate was just covered in beans and mushrooms, and there was no-one to be seen to ask for a fresh drink... the only thing you could have was a small selection of cereals or a full english.. if you were a veggie or fancied something a little different there was no choice! Overall a very bad experience! I do not recommend this to any body!!

Room Tip: Don't choose this hotel!!

Me and my boyfriend stayed in Normandie over Easter break. I have booked the hotel mainly because if its superb location. You cannot get any closer to all the shops and restaurants in Tenby.
I was pleasantly surprised with rooms!! I didn't expect much from pub accommodation, but I got to say it definitely exceeded my expectations. Room are very spacious and clean, dated decor which not necessary such a bad thing. Absolutely great food!! We even heard some people in town talking about the lovely meal they had in normandie!!
Any cons? Yes, its not a family place. Place indeed turns into a very lively place at night, even Sunday. However we just enjoyed drinks downstairs with everyone else. Overall, don't expect to have a quiet, early night in when you are staying in a pub :) we will definitely come back again!

While the Normandie is very central and convenient, being located above a pub/night club makes it extremely loud. Things didn't quiet down until at least 1AM, and we had a terrible night's sleep. The rooms themselves were fairly run-down (cracked plaster, mould in the bathroom, dingy carpet), and breakfast was a poor quality full English. With so many B&Bs in Tenby, not sure why anyone would stay at the Normandie. . . wish I had read the reviews beforehand.
