Review of Hotel Cavalier
3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 2 July 2022via mobile
Thought it looked good reviews were semi good close to where we needed to be , but the walls are paper thin, could hear arguments from other rooms .
When asked could we have a ground floor when I discovered we were upstairs and explained my husband had just had knee surgery I was met with sorry our regulars come first, after also being told of $100 bond on arrival not before.
When entering room people in building next door could see right into the room so closed curtains quickly. Rooms and bathroom need a bit of attention especially the shower, great size no water pressure and very dirty , honestly I have stayed at free camps with toilet/ shower ammenities cleaner.

Noise from Stud Rd didn’t bother us as much as the person going off and throwing stuff a couple of rooms down , if we weren’t so tired and so late at night I would have gone and got my money back and driven home.

These photos show the shower , that needs a really good clean, also when I checked under the bed and couch to make sure we hadn’t left anything behind, the rubbish under there , so I picked it up for you and put it in the bins.

The lady on the desk was very polite.

This place is very old and dated but it feels welcoming and homey. The staff are lovely and they look after you. The room is clean and housekeeping is great. The room is very big and the serviced apartments have full kitchen and plenty of room for the kids.
Located right next to Knox Westfield with lots of restaurants, activities and shopping.

I booked this hotel via airbnb and the experience is horrible. Please do not book this hotel. It is a total scam!
The pictures are very deceptive. The real room looks much much worse than it is on the picture. The light is dim and everything in the room seems dirty and old and you wouldn't want to put your hand on it. Worst of all for the my whole experience is the smell in the room. The carpet keeps oozing out a very pungent kind of artificial chemical smell. Because it is from the carpet or something in the room, even if you open the window and door for ventilation it will still be there.
The hotel stay I have been in there is the worst I have ever experienced in my entire life so far. Please save yourself from a hotel nightmare!!!!!

This is one of the worst hotels I have stayed in. The comfort, cleanliness, quality and asthetics were all well below par. This in no way matched the price tag or the photos. The hotel staff were lovely but the building is old and it really shows.

Reviewed 15 August 2018

The Cavalier is an older hotel that has been progressively maintained. However for the price paid for a City hotel it was entirely acceptable. The bed was comfortable but the split system aircon could have been quieter. Reception was friendly, the room was clean and cleaned during our 2 day stay . A continental breakfast was offered for $9 which was acceptable with fresh bread for toasting as well as cereals and juice.

The hotel is a 5 minute walk to Knox Westfield and "The Zone" an area offering many reasonable restaurants.

All in all good value for the price paid

Room tip: Ask for a room with a large TV. All the rooms seem quiet.
