It was such a pleasant experience to stay at Aden Hotel. The staff were exceptional! They showed us great hospitality and offered valuable travel advice. Customer service was fantastic and really personal. I would recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Te Anau.

It was snowing when we arrived and milford track had been closed. The owner was a lovely lady who knows the area very well and she informed us that our milford sound cruise would be cancelled. She then proceeded to help us with other activities to do and we could book them right then and there. Our room was spacious,... More

This motel was so clean and tidy and the room was big enough to sleep a family. Lovely, friendly welcoming host. Would without a doubt stay here again. The self contained kitchen facilities we found great and the bathroom was of decent size.Beds were super comfy!

This motel was our second in NZ. The room was large with a couch and table that seated four and full-sized kitchen. The room was clean, and the location was within a short walk to restaurants and shops. The TV service included a travel channel dedicated to sites in NZ, which we found helpful. A breakfast menu was available when... More

We stayed only for one night, and enjoyed a comfortable unit after a long day of the Milford sound trip. There was five of us and there was enough space, one in the lounge but that wasn't a problem. The host was very friendly and welcoming. They let us park our car there all day whilst we did the coach... More

We stayed in the two-bedroom family room. The motel is clean and cozy, can see that the owner has put in lots of effort in maintaining the place (by the way, love the red flowers they planted in from of the room). Cons: low water pressure, limited kitchen space (but it has everything that we need, functional). Other than that,... More

The Aden Motel is located on a quiet residential street close to the center of town and the lake. The hostess at check-in was very welcoming, and brought us cupcakes and milk to enjoy after we had settled into the room. The main draw for us in selecting this motel was the free wi-fi, which worked quite well and we... More
