The accommodation was clean. Reception staff were nice. Room was quiet small so laying bags out was difficult. Not well designed. We were in the room right at the front near reception so very very noisy. Not a good last night in Picton.

Thank you for your response which is helpful to us in improving our facilities. Sometimes during this very busy time guests maybe placed in less than ideal units through necessity or price related issues. Thanks again for your comments. More

Lovely motel, the owner was very friendly and helpful. Stayed in the spa unit and it was lovely after a ferry trip to relax in. Nice clean spacious room, only thing missing were paper towels for cleaning the bbq before use. Overall, it is a lovely motel and I'd be happy to stay again.

Stayed here in November during our stay in Picton. Very good location to cafes/restaurants/shops and waterfront. We had a beautiful room overlooking the water. Motel just across the street from supermarket, so good for stocking up on supplies. Staff very friendly, and helpful.

Aldan Lodge Motel is convenient for the town and ferry, yet quietly situated. Rooms are clean, comfortable and with all the usual facilities. Not remarkable in any way but excellent value with a friendly reception (though just about everywhere in NZ was very friendly).

This really may be the best motel in NZ in its price bracket! Efficient, friendly reception. Easy access to room via vehicle and on foot. Well located walk to shops, restaurant, pubs and water front. Spacious comfortable room was spotless and well appointed. Even a plunger and ground coffee provided! Would definitely stay here again.

My partner and I had a quick stop over in Picton on a trip through the South Island. We found Aldan Lodge to be perfect for our needs within quick walking distance to the main street and very welcoming hosts. Would definitely stay again.

Stayed at Aldan Lodge recently and found it to be very good. Good location, a walk down to the restaurants and wharf with a supermarket over the road. Heather was very helpful and we had great rooms. Plenty of coffee (plus plunger), tea etc and even though there was a small problem with the shower not draining properly - it... More
