My wife and I stayed for four nights in June 2013 and having visited the Cavalier three times previously were a bit disappointed with our stay. The room we were given (room 3) is not suitable for two and the bed was cheap and uncomfortable and the mattress was far too small for the bed.
Not really enough space to swing a cat , if thats your inclination.
Very cheap wardrobe and ensuite was not very good.
Towels were not changed every day , despite adhering to instructions to leave used towels in the shower after use.
Breakfast was not up to the usual standard.
Disappointed that the ground floor lounge is now used as the breakfast room and this takes away from the charm of the guest house.
The floor boards in the building badly need attending to as the noise stopped me from sleeping (I usually have no difficulty in getting to sleep)
Its a great location for easy access to the Minster area , however badly needs upgrading in several departments.
The manager kindly carried our bags to our room , however it would need a lot more than that for us to return to the Cavalier.
