Very comfortable room and welcoming atmosphere. Easy walking distance to the sea and the Lanes. Wonderful breakfasts and art throughout the hotel. We would certainly return there.

I enjoyed my stay at Cavalaire. Staff were welcoming and friendly, and my room was comfortable. Good location, in walking distance to the beach, city centre and station.

8/10 Very good

I really liked the funky environment and beautiful artwork. The room, even though small, was very nicely decorated and the bathroom was beautifully renovated (but again, small for a tall person!). The bed was especially comfortable and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

2/10 Poor

Nice, clean hotel. Good amenities and staff very friendly and helpful. The standard double room is very small though and the bathroom hardly big enough to move in. Check-in was very bad, we turned up after 4pm and our room still wasn't ready, despite check-in being available from 2pm. The owners put this down to staffing issues, although shouldn't hotels have contingency plans for this sort of thing!? We were on a short timescale having to get to a show that evening and couldn't get into our room until nearly 5pm and so did not have a chance to freshen up for the evening. Even with this inconvenience the owners did not even offer us a drink of water and suggested that we go to the local pub and wait until the room was ready. They did however, not charge us for the parking permits as compensation. The breakfast room is also very small with only 4 tables for two people, so you cannot always have breakfast at the time you want, if too many other guests are having breakfast at the same time.
