We booked at the Normandy when we found our originally booked hotel, The Evreux had closed for a couple of weeks and the owner had forgotten to advise us.
The Hotel Normandy is a basic hotel but gives the impression that in a past life it had been much grander.
It took 3 staff members to book us in, a bit like fawlty towers but they were cheerful and helpful enough.
Room was clean and with plenty of usable space but again very basic.
Our problems were with the bathroom. We ran out of hot water after one shower. The staff told us that it took 30mins to reheat. When we told them that it was unsatisfactory to wait 30mins for a shower, they made the shower in another room available for us. There was no lock on the second room, making us think that it may be used often for this purpose. We also had a problem with the water for drinking, it had a brownish colouration. Staff fixed this problem by giving us a carafe of water. Our last bathroom problem was that we ran out of liquid soap when having showers the next morning.
It's interested that the hotel claims in its welcome booklet that "our services are regularly controlled by specialists on a basis of 300 criteria", perhaps the specialists don't venture into the bathroom area.
Without the bathroom problems this would be a good value hotel.
