We had a great time

5 on August 02, 2017

We loved our stay! The staff were friendly and so helpful and we loved the porch! We spent hours playing with our 21 month old granddaughter .. and the fabulous 4 pm tea was an unanticipated bonus! Yum! Great location!

For the money this was a good stay...But..then there are the buts....The room was very small..maybe our fault for not doublechecking..We are not big people but we were not terribly comfortable in either the bedroom or the very small bathroom. There was a sizeable dresser but tiny closet with few hangers. The toilet articles were average. Overall, for what we got...a very good deal with close proximity to beach and town we could not complain. I would encourage anyone considering this Inn to check the size of the rooms/bathroom...Also...there are lots of vertical stairs as this is an old inn. The breakfasts were good,,,the menu tired out so did not present a good first image. It was nice having a tea time which we only took advantage of twice. The Inn in general needs some touchups as it is weary looking in some areas....windows need to be washed..shades in our room replaced...screen on outside on one window ripped..There were bikes...not all in the greatest condition so you need to pick well. We would still go back but be careful about what we choose there.

Innkeeper Response
Dear Guests, Thank you for taking the time to review our property. As a small family run business we try very hard to meet all of our guests needs! Please know that when guests book directly with us we can take extra care in describing the rooms that you are viewing pictures and descriptions of online. Yes, it is true that we are an old Victorian and a few of our rooms are quite small as are those particular bathrooms. For future reference, we do have many other rooms that are much larger and would be happy to talk you through those choices. While the inn is on the National Register of Historic Places and has won awards for the number of period antiques, there are definitely a lot of creaks and many steps!! We say it is part of our charm:-) As for the shade in your room that one is on us and we do apologize! Please do not ever hesitate to contact us as you have someone available to you 24 hours. Our full country breakfast and tea time are ones that we have kept for many years...based on popular demand...and pride ourselves on being one of the few inns who offer such an extensive breakfast. Having said that, we do try to accommodate and if have special requests/needs...please let us know! Finally, bikes are new every year. They do get a lot of use but again, let us know if you can't find what you need. Finally, thank you more than anything for staying with us and saying you would return. Please feel free to call me personally and refer to your review as we love our bedandbreakfast.com guests and I will make certain to make up for the lesser parts of your stay and show you our better side! Once again, thank you for your helpful feedback and for being one of our valued guests! We look forward to your return!!!

Everyone was extremely cordial. Breakfast was excellent with a good selection. Great location, half a block from the ocean. Spacious room and great book collection. Was also nice that they had chairs and towels.

Great Winter Getaway

4.0 on February 24, 2017

Spent a Sunday night at the Inn. We've stayed here numerous times over the years and always enjoy it, and the town of Spring Lake. It was a gorgeous warm weekend so we spent a good deal of time on the boardwalk and beach. Afterwards, the afternoon refreshments and wine set out in the sun porch were a great treat. The room is comfortable, though could use a bit of updating and we slept well. Breakfast was good. Only downside was that we saw very little of the innkeeping staff during our stay

Innkeeper Response
Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to write such a positive review of The Normandy! We truly do love what we do and are always so happy to hear our guests have enjoyed their time with us! We do apologize if we were not as "present" as you may have expected as we do not have a full staff over the winter so we wear many hats! In any event, we are happy your enjoyed the service and the inn and definitely hope to see you return soon! All our best, always, The staff at The Normandy Inn

Had a lovely weekend ( once again ). Beautiful room, good mattress, hot shower, and a delicious breakfast -- what's not to like? I expect the Normandy to deliver, and they always do.
