“Utterly Charming”
Reviewed October 3, 2011

My husband and I stayed at the Normandy Arms for one night whilst attending a wedding in the area. Nick is definitely the "Host with the Most", he was simply charming and helpful in every regard. We made many calls to him prior to arrival, quizzing him on the facilities in the rooms, the car parking facilities, whether he could book us a taxi etc etc etc. Every request was dealt with very quickly and positively. Nick greeted us on arrival and showed us promptly to our room which was just lovely. The room was calm, spacious, spotlessly clean with gorgeous crisp white bed linen, beautiful wallpaper, big window and a large swanky bathroom with lovely complimentary L'Occitance toiletries. His background in travel, arts and music - amongst others(!) has made him, in our opinion, one of the most perfect hosts we have had the pleasure of meeting simply because he "gets it". That extra something that enables a person to turn an overnight stay into something quite special. The whole place was somewhere we would have liked to linger longer.

The breakfast was very special, the casual perfection of being able to order anything we liked "working down from the full English breakfast" was an example of their flexible and welcoming approach. The food was predictably delicious and a peek at the dinner menu had us wondering whether we really did have to attend the wedding reception after all...

A great find and one we will be highly recommending to others and intending to re-visit ourselves.

Oh and there were a couple of beautiful log fireplaces in the restaurant/bar which make me think this would be a great place to snuggle up in winter - and the view... I didn't mention the view or the peace and quiet!!!

Room Tip: Any! We stayed in Hornfleur which had a beautiful bathroom but I think the other two rooms would ta...

Stayed for two nights at the Normandy Arms, a lovely little inn with rooms, not far from Dartmouth. When most of coastal Devon is heaving at this time of year its nice to find somewhere thats more peaceful but still well placed. Rooms are stylish and very comfortable, with good breakfasts and the inn does excellent dinners, a small but delectable menu is on offer. Nick, the host is very amiable and ensures you feel very much at home . Would recommend it for a night or two. It would be even better if they offered a Dinner B&B package.
