Very friendly and helpful host Irene. Stayed in a one bedroom unit. Very comfortable and clean. Great meal and fun night playing pool at the Moose Bar & Restaurant with live music to boot. Nice walk along the lake and short laneway to get to town. Bonus rose garden on site.

We stayed at the Aden motel - I highly recommend it! Spotlessly clean and a lovely interior with a lsrge shower. Very spacious units. Easy Walk 10 mins along the waterfront to the town. Nothing was a bother for our hosts who organised all for us including a tour to milford sound and a very generous breakfast. Many thanks for...

Nice welcome. The room was nice, good size and had all we needed. Good equipped kitchen etc. Electric blankets were an added bonus. Bathroom was ok, shower had limited hot water though. Beds comfortable. Free wifi, was good, did cut out sometimes. Peaceful area, and only a short 15 minute walk along the lake to the town.

Reasonably priced, beds were quite comfortable. Staff was very understanding about me checking in late because I had one heck of drive on the Southern Scenic Route and did not complain when I requested to check in late. She made all the arrangements and even turned on the heater for me so that I had a comfortable environment to rest...

We had a pleasant 2 nights stay in Aden Motel. We travelled in a family of 4 adults and the motel is comfortable enough to house all of us. The motel is clean, and situated on a quiet road side. I love it that the toilet of the motel comes with a heated fan and it helped alot even though...

We spent 3 nights here in early December, using Te Anau as a base for visiting Milford and Doubtful Sounds. We were made very welcome here by Mary, who was managing the motel while the owner was on holiday, and were given fresh milk and cakes on arrival. The standard twin room was clean and quiet, and well-equipped. Nice laundry...

My husband and I stayed here for three nights. It is in a great location in Te Anau. It was close enough to places so that we could walk but yet it was off the main street so it was quiet. The room was spacious. During our stay we did our laundry in the clean laundry facilities. They had a...

Aden Motel was a lovely place to stay. We had 2 bookings for the 7 of us...the units were well equipped and spacious too. We loved the hospitality shown by the manager.

This is a neat and tidy property with a friendly manager who wants you to enjoy your stay. The décor was a little dated but it is well maintained and very clean.
