          I had a very pleasant night at Blenheim Hotel in a Queen Room. The room was modern and well equipped, and had a nice balcony facing the street. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was quite small, but efficiently laid out. The room was very clean. The hotel is very conveniently located for business at the hospitals across the road, and the University of New South Wales. There are numerous eating places and supermarkets very close to the hotel. There is also very good public transport, even though the bus stops outside the hotel have been temporarily relocated nearby while the light rail project is constructed. Buses to Sydney city and Circular Quay, Bondi Junction, and the Domestic Airport can all be boarded from stops within a five minute walk of the hotel. Staff were efficient and friendly. Although the reception desk is not always attended, there is a number to call, and the response to my call was very quick. I'm definitely a return guest.

          Location

          I needed a hotel close by for a workshop and the Blenheim fitted the bill. The carpark only has room for 4 cars but there is on street parking that is untimed on weekends but during the week is a 2 hour limit. The room was small but clean, tidy and modern. There is a kitchen and laundry area if you need it and the hotel is an easy short walking distance to supermarkets and restaurants. The room was a little noisy at night when the neighbours doors would close and traffic also could be heard but overall was a good place to stay.

          Bright and modern

          We were a bit sceptical about staying in a Sydney Lodges establishment but, in this case, our fears were unfounded. The Blenheim is a contemporary boutique hotel close to shops, restaurants, cafes and watering holes. The rooms are small but comfortable - ours had a king-sized bed - and have ensuites and balconies which, though also small, are adequate. There is no restaurant or bar but there is a kitchen and laundry on the ground floor. Ask for a room facing Blenheim Street to avoid any noise from High St at the front of the hotel, which faces the Sydney Children's Hospital. Be also aware that the Blenheim has very limited car parking for which they charge $10 per night. You're better off finding a space on Blenheim St, though this can also be tricky. If all you are looking for is a reasonably-priced, clean, bright, well-maintained and safe place to lay your head at night, I have no hesitation in recommending the Blenheim.

          We (two 20 year old girls) stayed here for two nights. It was very clean and lovely decor. Fantastic location near the airport, city, shopping, Bondi, landmarks, etc. Only about a 10 minute taxi ride to each. Street noise wasn't a problem for us. Fresh and new decor/feeling. The room was small but perfect. Would definitely stay here again.

          The rooms are clean and well-appointed. We stayed because of an early morning departure from Sydney airport - which was only a 15min drive away. The hotel was not sign-posted so we only found it by recognising from the photo on the Agoda website. Overall, good value for money. The small hotel parking bay was full, but we found parking in the residential street at the back - Blenheim street.

          The room has the hotel facility but the business model is unique, because after 6pm, there is not a single staff in the building. the place becomes very very quiet, because there is not much activities/ shops in the area. the common kitchen is pretty good though.

          location
          No meals

          The hotel is reasonably new so condition is very good but rooms are small. On line there was no advise that the reception was closed between 12:00 and 14:00 as I arrived at just after 13:00, sister hotel just up the road assisted without any hassle. The address should be changed to match the reception area which is opposite to Blenheim St. Reception actually is on High Street also a lot easier for the Cabs to find. Overall not bad value for money in Sydney and great if you are going to Royal Randwick Race course.

          Great Location”

          Location, value for money and room

          The room itself was very small with tiny windows. A bit noisy until after 9pm with the traffic. Location was excellent, as I was on business and could walk to the hospital and restaurants for dinner etc.

          Disappointing”

          Location

          Hotel unattended on arrival, even though notice on door said it should be. Various phone numbers provided did not answer at first but eventually made contact with someone who told us how to access keys. Hotel has maintenance issues...bathroom sink didn't drain, soap holder and tap handles in shower kept falling off, hot water kettle in room didn't work (and the one in the hotel kitchenette didn't either). Bathroom door appeared to have been spayed with urine and not cleaned.
