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

This is a perfect little motel, the rooms are great and have everything you need in them! Irene is an extremely polite and welcoming lady and will point you in the right direction if you want to know anything about Te Anau or the activities available. I cannot recommend this place highly enough and its definitely worth visiting Te Anau... More

We recently spent two nights at the Aden Motel and couldn't have been happier with the service we got. My mom had gotten sick during our trip to New Zealand and so she stayed in the room while we all went to Milford Sound. The owners came into the room to clean and seeing that my mom was sick, went...

A good motel. Handy to the town, nice grounds, friendly staff, even fresh baking for afternoon tea on arrival. The best layout of motels we stayed at on this trip. Would stay there again if we went back to Te Anau.

We spent three nights at the Aden Motel and really enjoyed it. The self-contained accommodation has everything you could ask for and the owners/staff clearly go out of their way to make guests feel welcome and enjoy their stay. Te Anau and Aden Motel are memorable parts of our NZ trip!
