Aldan Lodge Motel is a family run Motel offering all the comforts of home with the indulgence we hope for whilst away from home. The personal greeting received from the owners on arrival sets the tone for a very enjoyable stay. Units are modern and beautifully presented. The extra special touches, such as of the Tuatara plunger coffee and toiletries... More

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

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
