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.

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
