OK to stay if nowhere else is available
These are converted rooms are above the old Cavalier pub. Being an old building the walls of the room are somewhat uneven and the floorboards very creaky and, although in some properties this could add character and charm to a room, here they do not. The positive things were that the bed was comfortable, the shower was hot (though difficult to control), the towels were clean and plentiful and the in-room tea making facilities were good. Unfortunately the room cleanliness was not great - with the previous guests used toiletries still remaining in the shower, the underside of the toilet seat was "rotting" and appeared unsanitary, the glass shelf above the bathroom sink was so loose that it was impossible to place any items on it without them falling off into the sink, and the bedside light was badly cracked and almost completely broken. One of the two nights I stayed here I could clearly hear loud music and other noise coming from the bar downstairs until late into the night, however I guess that this is to be expected from a room above a pub.
Pros: The bed was comfortable, the shower was hot, the towels were clean and plentiful and the in-room tea making facilities were good.
Cons: General room cleanliness and the bathroom needs basic maintenance.
Location: Close to the centre of the town with food take-away shops opposite the pub.
