“Good location, good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

We spent one night in this hotel as part of a tour group. Our room was a reasonable size, clean and comfortable and the hotel is well situated to stroll into the pretty town of Vernon. Dinner in the restaurant was good with a reasonable selection to choose from although with only 2 rather harassed staff on duty service was slow. Breakfast was good with bacon, sausage and scrambled egg in addition to Continental selection.

Room Tip: If visiting in summer avoid a south facing room as there is no air conditioning and rooms can be VER...

It is a nice hotel, well located, nearby River Seine.The staff is very helpful and friendly. the girl at reception did not have a good English, but she did a very effort to speak and she was lovely. Intercontinental breakfast and a pleasant garden for meals. Good and clean room and bathroom. Easy to reach the train station, walking.

Room Tip: I was on the 4th floor and I did not have problem with noises.

This review is of the restaurant, not the hotel which we found acceptable.
We had pre-ordered a bottle of wine as an aperitif. We sat down with other guests at 19.55 and asked for the wine. Our food order was eventually taken after two requests at 20.25.
The starter arrived at 21.00. We requested bread three times and it arrived with a shrug of the shoulders after we had finished our starters. The wine (our aperitif!) arrived at approximately the same time. The main course was served at 21.30, one hour and thirty five minutes after we had sat down! Three guests were served and then the waitress went and cleared other tables whilst the rest of us were waiting!!
I forget at what time the dessert was served.
The waitresses were surly and went about like headless chickens, going into the kitchen with nothing in their hands and coming out with nothing in their hands!!
Take my advice - stay there but don't eat there!!

This is a typical French hotel, room was clean and comfortable. As it is right in the center of town it did get noisy early in the morning. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. There was an English coach party in so restaurant was busy - hubby had the 'Formula' which was quick and very good, I ordered off the a la carte which was well worth waiting for. At breakfast there was some bacon, ham, pastries, fruit and cereal but no cheese or eggs.

Good location very close to the city center of Vernon and the Seine banks. Looking at its nice facade, coming in the lobby or sitting at the cost bar you can imagine the old hotel formerly named Hôtel du Soleil d'Or. But Hôtel Normandy has been modernized. To-day it's a functional hotel which offers a large choice of clean and quiet rooms. Prices are fair.

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
