The Blenheim Randwick
Ranked #8 of 11 Randwick B&B and Inns
Reviewed 5 June 2017 via mobile

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.

Stayed: June 2017, travelled as a couple

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.

Room Tip: Dont stay here.

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!!!!

Room Tip: Book somewhere else!!!!

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.

Room Tip: Don't do it! Stay at Coogee instead.
