I stayed at the Aden Motel with a couple of friends after a cold long walk in the Routeburn track and this motel was just perfect. Warm, clean and comfortable. We were welcomed with cupcakes and milk. The lady at the reception was very friendly, she even turned on the heater before we arrived, so the room would be warm.... More

Nothing wrong with the Aden motel. Nice size rooms with good facilities, especially kitchens, if that's important to you. Good heaters to keep warm. Nice warm welcome from the owner including a home baked cup cake and fresh milk for tea / coffee.

Great review on both the Motel but also our local town as well. We have a lot of Restaurants that are highly rated with excellent Chefs and we get great feedback and try to send guests to the ones that best suit their taste buds as some people are looking for Seafood, Chinese, Lamb and even a good Steak !!...

This was a great place for our family of 3 to stay during our recent trip to New Zealand. The owner is very helpful and took time to tell us about things to see and do in the area. We had the family suite which was spacious and clean. Lots of room for us to relax and enjoy the sunny... More

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

We at Aden Motel understand how hard it is to travel with children of all ages and having them sit in a car all day no using any energy becomes a problem as they need space to have a run around play with other kids and give parents some time out. We offer DVD's, Board Games, outdoor games, outdoor playground... 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
