The Blenheim is just across the road from the Children's hospital. It is easy to get to from the airport by bus. The facility was spotlessly clean. Unfortunately it is getting dated. I have stayed there before and this is the first time that wifi has been free. They didn't volunteer the password and I had to ask for it.... More

The rooms are very basic and pretty small, but that's not unreasonable for the price of the accommodation. What really lets the property down is an attempt of good service. As others have said, there are limited car spaces but if you call ahead they will reserve one if possible. We called within half an hour of arriving, and were... More

Booked to stay at the Bleinham "Hotel" for 6 nights whilst in Sydney. The bathroom constantly flooded due to very bad plumbing and on advising te reception of this when they were on site, it was shrugged off. On the 3rd day after a long day of sightseeing etc, we returned to the room to fine that the room had... More

Room was quite small but comfortable with a balcony overlooking the street. Is nice and close to the airport (~10min) and near good restaurants. Competitive price. Need to book in a parking spot and its a bit cramped in there if you have a larger car (only 4 carparks available). Was overlooking the main street but didn't find it too... More

Convenient location (hospitals, shops, cafes just around the corner) and a competitive price. Very limited off street parking means at busy times travellers with vehicles are forced to "do blockies" to try and find a car park within walking distance of the lodge. Slow and clunky lift. Trash, weeds and lack of upkeep obvious in and around lodge since our... More

It's close to the airport, coogee beach and lots of restaurants and obviously right across the road from the prince of wales hospital. The pros are... More

The floor/walls and bathroom seem to be far from clean, we had dried blood on the bathroom cupboards and walls!we were really disappointed once arrival not being able to... More

I've stayed here before and noticed this time a disappointing drop in levels of cleanliness, housekeeping, and general maintenance, e.g. overflowing garbage bins outside the front entrance, walls in need of fresh paint, blinds needing repairs, missing tea towels, face cloths, etc. Noise is always a problem if one has noisy neighbours on their balconies, and guests are discouraged from...

Room and reception service was very good. It could have been more helpful if I knew there was an entrance off High Street. As I came by bus it would have been better that the bus stops displayed their stop number. I was lucky and had a helpful driver.
