From the very friendly Irene at the front desk and the fact that the motel is pet friendly, this place had much more homely character the bigger hotels seemed to be lacking. Our room was very comfortable - as was the bed - and having peace and quiet all night was a bonus.

...will keep you up all night. Try for somewhere that has a little bit more infrastructure upgrades. The beds and mattresses are old and overly soft, my husband and I kept rolling into the center of the mattress all night.

Hello my lovely people some how I knew you were going to give me a review. I like to let you know that the radiator heating has been fixed due to an airlock for those that understand what that means but they are the best form of heating without drying the air out like a lot of heating systems as...

We were very happy with our overnight stay at the Aden Motel. Irene was terrific, the kitchenette was well equipped, and basically we had everything we needed and wanted. We loved the car wash ( used it) and the idea of being able to pick veggies in season, and admired the splendid flower garden. They're trying hard and they're succeeding!

Older style motel but comfortable with good cooking facilities. My studio had a regular stove with an oven, roasting pan and frying pan in good condition, microwave, tea kettle, toaster, dining table with two chairs, flat screen TV, small writing desk, sofa.

We stayed 9 different accommodations in New Zealand, and quite frankly, they were all very similar in room layout, age, and cost. Unlike most North American motels, most of the units we stayed in had a kitchen unit with cooking utensils and cutlery, usually along with a toaster and coffee maker. All of the units provided a few sachets of... More

The Aden is a secret that deserves to be spread. It is well above three star rating and I suspect only there because it lacks some services. We stayed in Room Six and found it to be clean, well kept, well equiped and well decorated. The gardens are beautiful and well kept. The extras offered are thoughtful and practical from... More

We spent three days at The Aden Motel. Soon after our arrival it was suggested that in the afternoon we should view the ‘Fiordland On Film’ at the Fiordland Cinema. That was a great introduction to the Fiordland area. We discussed with Irene (the Manager) about Doubtful and Milford and she highly recommended the ‘Doubtful Sound’ trip. The tour did... More
