                This is our first time at the Walden. What a fantastic place for families with small children! We have a 7 and 10 year old and they both had a blast. The play room was a hit. My husband who is an avid reader also enjoyed the books they had at the library. We definitely plan on visiting again!

                I was fortunate to be upgraded to a deluxe room with a balcony. It was cozy and comfortable. The infant bedding was clean and soft and they provided a small bathing tub and a bottle sterilizer upon request. The service was excellent and the housekeeping was among the highest standard. There were plenty of choices in breakfast buffet which recharges my day every morning. The playroom was also well-maintained, the staff were very nice to keep the order on the slide and initiated storytelling to the kids. Very impressive service indeed!

                Stayed in a family room. Check in was smooth and hassle free, counter staff were polite. Rooms were quiet, nice and adequately spacious for 3 adults and 2 children. The level 2 playroom for children was clean and well maintained by the staff. Buffet breakfast and lunch had adequate food variety and selections. However the toilet of the room was difficult to lock as it required 2 sliding doors to be aligned and locked (perpendicular in fashion).

                not the service level i was expecting though the hotel is nice”

                First I have to say that I do like this hotel. Cute deco with rabbits as their mascot. They have indoor children play area and entertainment (for adults too) for hotel guest. Buffet spread had a lot of selection. They gave pastries for free in the room as snacks. Shower amenities (shampoo and body cleanser) is good as well. They have local super market next to them. Now comes to the part where I was NOT HAPPY about. It will be their service staff. I checked in at the hotel in the late evening. my family have a total of 2 big luggage, 2 small luggage and a handful of shopping bags. The hotel concierge staff did not came out to help my driver to unload the luggage initially. It was a lady staff at the hotel Café area who rush out FIRST to help out. Upon that, 1 guy from the concierge counter came out to help carry the small luggage and the lady staff was trying to carry the large luggage. for this part I cannot understand why café staff was the one who came out to help. Not only that, while my hubby was doing the check-in, there are totally no smile from the counter staff. They gave us the impression that they judge their guest by the way they dress. We are in t-shit, shorts and sandal on that day. I was thinking if I was dressed in more "appropriate" attire, I might get better service. If you ask me if I will return to this hotel, I may consider as I do love the deco and it's facilities.

                Great room and facilities”

                Excellent hotel in the middle of nowhere, great room and facilities for children. Quality of food at the restaurant is only average, and there are no alternative dining options within walking distance.

                Level 2 is the kids haven. With the play room, slides, arcade games and racing cars (for the husbands haha). Level 3 restaurant is yummy and a good spread. There was an outdoor train ride too. Rooms were spacious, toilet was big and well equipped.

                Functional and thoughtful family room design - separate toileting area which is practical & time saving for a family of 4.. Breakfast spread was good but can be better if items like French toast, pancakes and waffles are offered too.

                This hotel is value for money. Room is big and comfy. Large twin beds that are enough for 2 adults with 2 kids. Breakfast is average. Kids enjoy the mini train outside the cafe as well as the playroom.

                The hotel has beautilful full window rooms. It is new so very clean. The buffet is good even if after 3 diners, all meals are same so it was a bit boring. Missing some accessories in rooms but this hotel is cheap compared to other hotels that we tried before.
