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 occupied unit 5 for 1 night. The carpets were stained and unhoovered. The outside spa had a leak and wouldn't fill. The toilet paper was like hard public toilet paper. There was tea/coffee condiments and kettle but no cups, plates or any crockery. Overall the place was dirty and run down.

This motel is very old and not look after well. From other reviews I found out that this motel has been around for quite some time, and has had a change of ownership. At first glance it seemed alright, but every corner in the motel was a disaster. Mouldy, dirty, rusty. Even stepping on the carpet with bare feet was...

We stayed here 5 years ago for a weeks holiday in Rotorua with family from overseas, we booked a couple of units, they were in pristine condition, the people that owned it then were just delightful and went out of their way to accommodate us and organised some tours for us, it was very clean. We have just spent a...

Oh my goodness - where to start - the place is very tried & need of some renovation/TLC, the cleaning was less than desirable with the kitchen wall behind the rubbish bin dirty & yukky!

The standards of cleanliness and maintenance were way below what one expects from this industry. Carpets and chairs were stained, towels were threadbare and grey, courtyard to spa was green with slime and weeds, and worst of all aerosol spray was used extensively to mask odours activating asthmatic conditions. Owners unwilling to refund pre-paid deposit

“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.”
