We stayed the night before we went to Milford Sound. The woman of the reception was very kind and helpful, she showed us all the choices we had in Milford Sound, if you want she can make reservations for you. The room was very clean and comfortable, the wifi is limited to 2 Gb but was more than enough. So...... More

Excellent and value for money place to stay!! Staff were very friendly and accommodating! Free kids and movie DVD rental and that helps me a lot for my kids. They even have playground for kids, swinging bench and coffee table for you to sit back and relax. They even allow me to use their car washing bay to wash my... More

We stayed here before and after completing the Milford track and found Aden motel a very nice place to stay. The family that run the motel are extremely friendly and go the extra mile with there customer service. We definitely would stay there again and recommend this place to friends and family. They are also very knowledgeable of the area... More

Very warm welcome from Irene; as well as the usual milk, there were little cup cakes. Dated accommodation, but very clean and comfortable. Decent laundry, where eco-balls are in use to save washing powder. They seem to work just fine. Lovely touch of a small vege/salad plot where you can help yourselves to fresh lettuce, tomatoes, etc (don't be greedy!).... More

We would guess by reading your review you stayed in our... More

We stayed for 2 nights. The room was a good size with a large comfortable bed. The room could have done with a bit of attention. The rubbish bin was an old open plastic bucket. Not what we needed in the lounge. The hob – which we did not use – had started to rust. The bathroom was not that... More

Thank you for your review my only advise is that you should look at the star rating of the Motel you are booking at as we see you had been staying at 4 star to 4 star plus level then you come to a 3 star plus and expect it to be of the same quality so by checking would... More

I picked this motel mainly because of the reviews on TripAdvisor saying that it was friendly and a home from home. I wasn't disappointed. After a 3 day tramp on Kepler I wanted to clean up and relax my weary bones. There was a laundry, full cooking facilities, and cup cakes on arrival! The place has an old fashioned charm... More

Thank you for a fantastic review yes we have a lot of very tired and sore track walkers with often wet clothing arrive at the motel. We try our best to get things sorted to help you get things dry often before people leave again the next morning but often things get left behind so contact details and credit card... More

Our room was spacious and very comfortable especially the bed after a busy day sightseeing. We stayed here a year ago and there are all sorts of subtle changes to the décor. It is nice that Irene and David are continuing to improve what is already a very pleasant home away from home

Well its great to have return guest back to see all our changes we have made to the Motel and its even better that the guests can see the changes we have made. The Motel might not be modern due to being built in the 1970's but it is very comfortable and yes we try to make it as homely... More

This motel is average and basic. We had a warm greeting from the owner, and found the room clean and comfortable, but due to demand in small Te Anau we paid NZD$175 for a basic room. The bed was comfortable and the shower warm, but the room was nothing special. We liked our hosts, and found this just what we... More

Stayed for three nights whilst visiting Fjordland. We were met by the famous Irene who did provide the equally famous cupcakes. She really is very helpful. She helped arrange our trip to Milford Sound, we had booked other trips in advance. The rooms, bedroom, bathroom and kitchen were all large and well equipped. They were serviced daily and fresh coffee... More

Yes, the motel is super clean and comfortable and the rooms are beautifully decorated and furnished and the linen is crisply ironed and the towels are super fluffy ... but I think it is the personal touch that Irene gives to every guest that makes it feel special.
