Used as a night stop before leaving to the North Island. Comfortable, quite and adequate. We ended up in a room with an extra 3 beds. No complaint though. Easy walking distance to town centre and restaurants.

Arrived late after arriving by ferry to Picton, had rung ahead and key was left in door. Room was very clean and comfortable. Left early in the morning, but did get a chance to talk to lady at reception who enquired what our plans were for our trip and gave a few direction tips, which were appreciated. Would use this...

Admittedly, the Aldan was not our first choice, we were directed there as they were the duty motel for the night. We are glad we were sent there! Arriving latish, we were greeted warmly and despite not having a booking or having phoned ahead, we were treated like we had! Great rate and the room exceeded our requirements. Will be... More

Although we had booked to go to the west coast, due to the wet weather we ended in picton by surprise. Picked this place on a drive by and have not been disappointed. It had wonderful facilities. Very clean and tidy and plenty of beds to sleep in within the room . Could not fault anything and would recommend a... More

We stayed here as a one night stop over in picton - we wish we could have stayed more. Lovely rooms with all facilities you need - kitchen, wifi, tv AND comfy beds! The owners were really nice as well! Would definitely recommend!!

Stayed here for three nights, the owners are very friendly and helpful. Large spacious apartment with well equipped kitchen, comfy beds and lovely bathroom. Can't recommend highly enough. Wifi didn't seem to last long but maybe we use it more than we think!

Aldan is exactly what it is, a clean, friendly and convenient motel. Nothing flashy, nor over the top, but if you want a clean, comfortable place- with wifi! (though in Picton it is not always reliable)- look no further. With the supermarket across the road we picked up what we needed for brekky and cooked it in the little kitchenette.... More

Clean and tidy little motel with a nice supermarket just across the road. Short walk into picton town which was one of my favourite places visited in the south island. Free wifi. Good laundry facilities. Really helpful motel manager.

The standard of the motels in NZ that I visited was quite high. A studio format or better seemed standard, with electric kettle, coffee/tea, and a half pint of fresh milk on check in. The Aldan was right in line with this format. My room was very clean, nice but not fancy, and easy to access through the glass sliding... More

We stayed one night and it was perfect for our family of five. Very clean and oh so handy being able to park the car off the road and just walk everywhere. A lovely easy walk to the waterfront where we enjoyed our dinner and the kids loved the playground. Nice friendly hosts too.
