Hotel Normandy
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Vernon
Reviewed May 3, 2013

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.

Stayed for one night on business. Also had dinner in the restaurant. I would describe the hotel fixtures and fittings and ambiance as one of faded grandeur. Rooms and public areas were clean and tidy and the staff pleasant enough. Even though the restaurant was less than half full our first choice main course was not available and breakfast was a typical, quite sparse, buffet style. I would stay again but only as there is little other choice in that place and price level

Central location In Vernon, 6 minutes by Car to Giverny, with many Good restaurantes around, it was an excelent option to our last day In France this time. The price was a bargain and it tooks 90 minutes to arrive CDG next morning. For a Good dinner we chosed Lagoon In front of the hotel,

The staff were very helpful. The breakfast had lots of variety and we enjoyed it. The room was big and clean. There is no air conditioning but it gets cool in the evening and you can open the windows. Vernon is a lovely small town. You can get the bus to go the short distance to Giverney which is awesome. There was a nice restaurant across from the hotel where we had dinner. We would stay here again.

We stayed at this hotel on the first night of a tour of the Loire Valley. The reception area, restaurant and longue area were very comfortable but some might find them old fashioned. Our room was large but very basic though the bed was very comfortable.
We ate dinner in the hotel restaurant (which was included in our overall holiday price) and the food was excellent - portion size was good and the service was fast and friendly.
Vernon itself looked like a very interesting town if somewhat small. We went for a short walk before our evening meal and discovered a lovely old church and several charming historic buildings. We just wished we'd have had more spare time to explore.

A perfectly good hotel, all that is required for a single night. The big surprise was the high quality of the meal they provided for a party of about 40 ( coming to the restaurant at different times, as requested by the hotel to avoid a long wait for service ) with a choice of menus. Buffet breakfast for an early start for Monet's garden

Stayed one night en route for Monet's Garden; room small but very clean and welcoming. Bathroom of a good size with bath and shower, however, be careful when using the shower as no rubber mat was provided and the bath became very slippery! Bedroom window looked down onto the courtyard at the rear of the hotel which is a nice place to sit and have a drink. Food service at dinner was rather slow in the hotel's Le Cottage Bar/Restaurant but the food was good when it arrived and there was a good breakfast buffet. The hotel is centrally situated in Vernon, a pleasant little country town with a few bars and restaurants and several shops.
