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...

Very friendly, helpful staff. We booked at the very last minute after our car broke down on the way to Penguin and also checked in late but everything was ready for us as soon as we got there. Room was clean, comfy bed, not too noisy. The only thing was there was no elevator, only a dumb waiter type lift, which didn’t really affect us much as we were able to fit all our stuff in it and walk up the stairs but worth mentioning in case stairs are a problem for anyone :)

Unfortunately not great stay. Bed was comfortable but the water shower was dirty and took ages for warm water. Carpet was dirty also. Won’t be staying again

Convenient location at a good price. Clean and comfortable. Being so close to town it is a little noisy on Friday and Saturday nights.

Hi Aleem, Thank you for choosing Cornwall during your visit in Launceston. We are glad you have enjoyed your stay with us. It's quiet noisy during weekend considering we are in the city and that we cannot control. We look forward to seeing you again in the future. Regards, Jay
