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.

Myself & partner along with two children checked in on New Years Eve during torrential rain. We were greeted instantly and shown to our very well appointed, new renovated (I assume) room with mezzanine floor which very much impressed the kids as they thought they had their own tower with winding staircase. They spotted the Ferry going in and out... More

We were arriving late off ferry and had rung ahead. Were met by a friendly Doug who had the heaters on ready for our arrival. Room was very comfortable and were late leaving as we slept so well. Keep up the great work and thanks. See you again next time we are passing. ☺

We had a lovely overnight stay at Aldan Lodge. We were warmly greeted and well looked after upon our arrival. The room had everything we were looking for and had lovely, modern decor. The shower had good water pressure and I particularly appreciated having hand lotion available after washing my hands. The selection of beverages was better than many motels... More

We needed a room at a decent rate to start and end our Queen Charlotte track walk - Aldan Lodge ticked all the boxes. It's close to town (5 minute walk) with plenty of dining options to choose from. The supermarket across the road is really handy for last minute supplies (or if you're craving a bag of chips after... More

A.L motel is in a good location. (you can't go wrong with Picton). Amenities are basic, simple (but not 3 star), and clean. It is a in a quiet location, about 10 mins walk to town. note: the balcony of each room has an ashtray for smoker. We are both non-smoker but became secondary smoker due to our neighbor smoker.

We booked this motel for a one night stay while traveling to the South Island. We were arriving very late with a boat (which we warned them about) and they went out of their way to make our arrival as simple as possible. Saving a park for the car & boat and greeting us after midnight! The location is close... More

Aldan Lodge provided our group a great home base for our trip to the Picton area. Each unit had a small kitchen and there was a grocery store and liquor store right across the street. The restaurants and downtown area are all within walking distance. Our only two complaints were the limited internet (had to pay additional past a very... More
