Worst experience ever in my life. Our stay was for 3 days and very first day I requested staff members to change the room as it was horribly smelling. Staff at reception accepted the problem but couldn't provide any solution. Place was not at al safe. All 3 nights, the were few guests, were continuously banging the room door and disturbing other guests and this goes till late night or early morning 3 A.M. but staff were scared to take any action. I would never recommend to anyone about this property.

This property looks great from the outside and the pictures of the rooms do to. Beware. It appears to be a hostel, it is shabby and worn...really sad to see the old Batman and Fawkner like this. The toilet had faecal stains, the surfaces were dirty, the rooms were shabby and totally unlike the photographs. The receptionist didn't seem surprised when we handed the keys in-made no move to apologise. the Grand Chancellor next door told us they frequently accommodate guests who have walked away from the Cornwall...
