“Post-graduate home”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

I chose to stay at the Blenheim while completing a post grad qualification at UNSW. It is a 15 min walk from most of campus, 3 mins from a great cafe for morning coffee and breakfast, 5mins from Coles and right in the bus 400 from the airport stop so handy for saving on cabs on that student budget! Lots of places for dinner 5-10mins away too. Hairdryer in room was great and a lovely balcony for outdoor time after spending all day in the classroom. I stayed 4 times this year with another trip coming.

We found the service to be very good overall - friendly, helpful. The rooms are quite modern and clean with comfortable beds. However, for 2 people they are very small rooms, the tiniest bathroom I have seen, and even a tiny TV on the wall! We were on the ground floor, and had a lovely outlook to the little garden outside,,,very nice to sit in the sun. We chose these apartments because they are across the road from the Hospital,and in walking distance to some great cafes and shops....so excellent location for us.

Room Tip: Room no 1 and 2 are on the ground floor at the back, so quiet, sunfilled.

Pros:
Service was friendly and helpful, and allowed early check in
Location ideal for UNSW, hospital, public transport, cafe strip etc
Very modern, clean room with TV, kettle, mini fridge, and hair dryer
Very comfortable bed

Cons:
'Queen room' was 2 single beds pushed together, and very small
Bathroom door extremely heavy
Cleaning service only every 2nd day - my experience was not at all for 5 night stay!
Communal guest kitchen and laundry is tiny and hard for more than one person to access at a time.

Overall:
Had a very comfortable stay, was worth the money paid due to location and will absolutely stay there again next time.

Very poor value for money.
Service was below par no offer of advice or help. No return call when I left a message on answering machine. No privacy from balcony as stated in ad.
Room very small and probably the smallest I had stayed in ever. Even if it may seem convenient stay somewhere else

If you need to be within the UNSW vicinity, The Blenheim is ideal.

The facilities are all new and pristine. The rooms are well equipped & complete; bed was nice and comfortable, mounted flat screen TV, mini fridge, glasses, hairdryer, in room coffee & tea making facility. The room came with a decent balcony(small table & 2 chairs). WIFI was available at no extra charge. There was camera surveillance on the ground floor. Rooms were clean and are cleaned every two days. That was okay.

Bathroom door was a tad too heavy (self closing mechanism), especially for elderly guest and kids.

The hotel is conveniently located on the bus route to the airport. We attempted the bus to the airport (Take Bus 400 *Burwood @ A$4.60 OW) but it took 46 minutes; so you need to allow for this.

Avoid paying by credit or charge card as there is a surcharge.

Cheers!

My son was attending a 3 day workshop at UNSW, so the location for the daily visit to the uni was perfect. The hotel is within a short walking distance of many restaurants and 2 supermarkets, so accessibility to lots of facilities is great. The wi-fi was free with the room, but did not work for us.
The room was clean and functional, but a shared bed was only available, and sleeping with a child does not always lead to a good nights sleep. The parking is the one downside - hard to find (locally) and not available within the hotel lot until our lasts night stay.
Staff were helpful, but the room was not serviced during the three nights that we stayed, even though we were told it would have a full service every second day.
Not the most fantastic place we ave ever stayed, but it is perfect for what we needed at that time.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the Blenheim St side - less traffic noise.
