Paid $98 Aud. check it was fast. Was happy to see 2 double beds. One downstairs within the lounge and mini kitchen, and 1 upstairs. Our personal 4 personal spa tub was included in the room. Which was in a private courtyard. Shower pressure strong and beds were comfortable. Close to everything. Great value.

Why do some places look and sound far better than they are! You know you've made a mistake as soon as you enter reception! Then your heart sinks when you enter the room. The room smells, the bed doesn't smell that good, even with the clean sheets. It's tatty and not clean. Pay the extra few $ and find a...

Where to start with this filthy dump? Maybe the very questionable stains littering each section of the carpet. Maybe the ridiculously tired, dirty and worn bathroom complete with dead insects covering the ceiling and where flushing the toilet results in a 10 minute cistern refill that sounds like Huka Falls running through the wall. Speaking of walls, the delightful stains...

Where to start- place hasn't seen a cleaner in God knows how long, stains on the bedding, rubbish left in the cupboard, mould, grime and dust everywhere. I have stayed in hostels in south east Asia which were 30 X more pleasant than this place. When emailing them to say how unhappy we were with this place we were given...

Although the unit was abit rough around the edges, it was warm.. the spa is lovely. and as this is my second time here at Baden, i can see that they are really trying to make improvements. they are very friendly. The private spa was amazing, and overall for the price we paid, was a good experience.

“We always take our own pillows - the pillows felt quite firm so were glad to have taken our own.”

“The place is awesome. I have to say that it is the best motel I’ve ever experienced. Firstly, the studio is quite luxury with 2 floors, and every floor has a queen-size bed in which I had a good quality sleep all night, the private spa pool makes you totally relaxed especially after a whole day travelling. Speaking of service, the receptionist Cindy is professional and filled with passion. The most important thing is that the price is value for money. I strongly recommend this place for travellers such as couples or families.”
