Reviewed yesterday NEW

We came to York looking for a place to stay for the night and found the cavalier to have vacancies. Julia was very accommodating and we go at a room with three beds. Rooms are clean but are very outdated and could do with modernising. The walls are paper thin. You can hear a cough or a sneeze through them....

Ideally situated with easy access into town. Caretaker couple were very nice and easygoing. Room Decor needs a bit of updating but very clean. Lovely smell of breakfast cooking as you come downstairs in the morning.

I've stayed here a few times when I have early trains and now that Julia, the owner, has switched to room only I am really happy. I think room only is a great move as you can then choose where when and what to eat for breakfast. If you are wanting breakfast there are lots of lovely places within 5...

Spent two nights here recently for an annual jolly-boys-and-girls-outing. There were three of us and we were given the family room on the top floor - two double beds, one single, and en-suite facilities. The place is comfortable and clean and the proprietors friendly (in that unique, dry Yorkshire way) and the breakfast was excellent. It's also perfectly located a...

We booked the Cavalier back in October for a pre Christmas weekend break. It's in a great location and the caretaker staff who are running it up to Christmas were very friendly, helpful and so nice. The breakfast is very plentiful with a limited choice. However they do try to accommodate all your requirements. We had a family room with...

Stayed here for 2 nights. My friend and I shared a triple room with a single and a double bed. The room was clean and very spacious. Bathroom was clean and modern, and the shower cubicle was a good size. Breakfast is the usual full English, although they do offer variations of this, the second morning I had scrambled egg,...

Like some other reviewers I'll start with the positive. We booked this particular guest house for its location, it was spot on for that as we were attending a wedding in Grays court. We also needed to keep within a budget as we needed 4 rooms all ensuite and 3 of those needed to be twin rooms. Again that was...

Had midweek break here. We have stayed here many times over the past couple of decades. It is a guest-house B&B rather than a hotel but for price, location and breakfast and free parking it is hard to beat. There are some negative reviews online, but bear in mind it is an old building in a conservation area, so not...

2 work colleagues on a training course, female age 40+. Definitely recommend this b&b. Lovely warm rooms . Spotlessly clean. Comfy beds and fluffy towels. Decent size bathroom. Lovely touch with toiletries . Breakfast was delicious. Yes it's an old building and does have a few creaking floorboards but not a problem. It's not modern but very comfortable. 2 minute...
