Instant Hotel's Babe Scott Reveals 15 Filming Secrets You Didn't Know About The Netflix Show

There’s an easy way to tell if someone has watched Instant Hotel, the Aussie hit that arrived on Netflix last year.

Just put on your best Sydney accent and ask them: “Would you like a margarita?”

With their cocktail-inspired apartment, penchant for a bevvy and no holds-barred reviews, Babe Scott and her daughter Bondi became the stand-out stars of the series.

So naturally, we hunted down Babe, a badass baker and decor diva (they’re her words not ours, but we totally agree), to find out more about the show – and what life has been like since.

Here are 15 things we learned...

The application process was surprisingly simple

Babe and Bondi were contacted after producers saw reviews of her rental online. “It was a pretty simple process, we didn’t have to jump through too many hoops,” she explains. “Basically, you know, we did a Skype interview and questionnaire to prove we weren’t serial killers and basically that’s it, we were pretty much booked for the show.

“But having said that I was literally halfway through the renovation of Adventures In Margaritaville [their cocktail-inspired apartment] so it was like, ‘woah!’ and I had to really put my foot on the accelerator.”

The Adventures In Margaritaville Mural isn’t actually her

You know the one – it features a beautiful redhead and covers an entire wall in the flat. Quite frankly, you can’t miss it.

“What’s funny about that, and I hadn’t realised until when I was watching the show,” Babe starts, before interrupting herself to say she’s “only watched it once”. “When I was watching, I had no idea Leroy said that was a painting of me.

“Honestly, with Bondi’s make-up skills and Khloe Kardashian’s surgeon and the entire special effects team from Star Wars, I could never look like that. She was a 20-year-old pin-up.” [HuffPost UK would like to note that Kardashian has always denied having plastic surgery.]

“Anyway but that was sort of funny,” Babe says. “I’m a mad, mad art lover and that’s what was interesting about the show. I’ve had many, many emails from people asking where I got the barbie prints and all of the art.”

Of course, she really did crash the car

Babe and Bondi made the most memorable........
