Wow, what a great motel. The rooms are so nice, the design is wonderful. The owner was really nice and gave a lot of tips. The kitchen facilities were great and the bathroom really clean. We had everything we wanted and more. Would definitely stay again.

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. The room was very quiet at night, but in the morning at around 7:30 a.m. I could hear... More

What a great review and yes its not always easy in any Motel to get a sleep in I guess as so many people are on the move early to get to their next adventure for the day. Sad really people only stay a short time in Te Anau and never really get to see and do the many things... More

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
