Really convenient location and friendly hosts. Offered us fresh milk and muffins, which was really nice. Good for your trip to Milford sound or around Te Anau. Was a bit cold at the end of April, but we had heater, blankets and electric mattress.

We arrived in Te Anau on a bitterly cold wet day and we delighted to find that the heating was on in our unit so it was delightfully warm which was much appreciated.

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights during our stay in Te Anau, having stayed at over a dozen other places in NZ. The room has everything, but the bathroom would benefit from an extractor and heated towel rail - not huge investments, but a real bonus if put in. It is only a short walk to the... More

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.
