We had not intended to stop at Norseman but were feeling tired and decided if we could get a room we would stop over for the night. Staff at the Norseman were very good and even though the motel was full of repair crews due to a derailment on the Esperance line we were given a good room very close to the dining reception area. We decided to try the dining room for dinner that night and were very pleasantly surprised, the food was delicious and beautifully presented - equal to any good restaurant in the major cities. There was a large open fire in the dining room which gave the room a delightful ambience. Our bed was very comfortable and there was sufficient hot water for both of us. The next morning we wanted to have a very early start so we had breakfast next door at the BP service station which was excellent value for money. All in all, an unexpected surprise and we will definitely stay there again.
