The Blenheim Randwick3.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I needed a comfortable, clean, no-fuss, economical place to stay - handy to the UNSW campus where I was involved with a 2 day conference. The Blenheim ticked all boxes. It was also closer than I expected to the retail and dining facilities of Randwick.
Stayed at the Blenheim on Saturday night tone close to our grandsons performance at NIDA, now that was a mistake, huge huntsman in the room on arrival, which my husband kindly put outside, mould throughout the shower and $185 later we paid for a lot of noise, it has been a long time since we were caught out wont happen again, no excuse for lack of cleanliness and spiders 🕷
Extremely close to prince of Wales hospital campus so perfect for a early morning appointment. Reception was courteous and helpful. Room was clean and functional it was quite as we were at the Blenheim street side of the complex and road work is being carried out on the high street side. Bed was very comfortable and we slept well. There is very limited parking on site (4) spaces only and we were lucky to get one. We would probably still there again.
Trying to make our arrival time before reception closed but were stuck in city traffic the blenheim rang us to check on arrival time, they were great told us our key was in the box but we got there just before closing. Staff were great and helpful. Close to everything needed with regards to medical appointments. Great bed which was very comfortable, same with the doona and pillows also shower was excellent and hot. Bad points are blind do not make the room dark so sleeping is difficult also while there they are doing roadworks in High Street which appears to have been ongoing for some time. Only 4 carparks but we were lucky to get one.
2 nights in Randwick over a long weekend. The Blenheim was convenient to my destination. Parking is not available, take that on the chin, but is available near by. The receptiln was, courteous and helpful. The room is small but clean, well appointed and comfortable.
The hotel information says it has parking, yea sure. 4 parking spaces for 18 units!! Bloke in reception not helpful at all. Had to park in the parking at the Children's Hospital. Room too small and doors are that basted heavy you had to use all your strength and body weight to open them. Wardrobe hangers were above our heads so couldn't get them down to use. Only had hot water. What's wrong with that you ask? There was not a drop of cold water so you boiled yourself in the shower. Literally!! Would not bother staying here again nor would I recommend anyone else to put themselves through such a hideous place to stay.
Great hotel, clean, tidy and centrally located. We stayed here as we had an early appointment for my daughter at the childrens hospital. We arrived after reception had closed as we had a 3 hour drive to get here. Reception were helpful and friendly. Would stay here again.
They advertise foxtel which they told us they haven't actually had for a few years. They advertise a "guest's kitchen" which they do have but the cooktop didn't work and the toaster broke down months ago and they didn't replace it because the owner doesn't want to spend any money on the place. The lift didn't work on the first day but was fixed by that night and then promptly went off again by the next morning and we had to walk to the top floor. They do have a laundry but you have to pay to use it. My experience was totally bad. The only good thing was that I booked in and paid for 3 nights but received a refund for the last night. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. I enquired about the free wi-fi and was told it doesn't always work.
If you are driving to this property DONT book it is a nightmare, the entrance to the property is in High Street which is having major roadworks done. If you think you will get a car space to park forget it, they only have four and they keep the gate locked. Parking in the streets around the area is impossible as it opposite the Prince of Wales hospital!! Anyway most streets have parking meters. We found it impossible to park and cancelled accommodation which cost us!!!!
Having paid $200 for the night, I was very disappointed by the whole experience. It was like a bad motel. The room was small and basic. The shower flooded the bathroom. There was mould growing in the grout in the bathroom. There was a lot of street noise. There was no ironing board in the room (one is available in a shared laundry area). Next time, I will definitely stay at Coogee.
