i stayed at the Aachen Place for one night in early December while traveling through the South Island. I had driven all the way from Wanaka and toured the West Coast a bit before arriving at about 8pm. i had booked ahead by looking at Google Earth and seeing tripadvisor comments.
The first thing is that the motel is right on the main highway through town. The second is that the rooms, unlike what is depicted on the property web site, were essentially glass resonators as the courtyard facing wall was made entirely of single pane glass, Combined with the overall concrete block construction it meant that every vehicle that came by shook the room, and my bones, to the core.
There were other inconveniences, such as only instant coffee (no french press plunger that was ubiquitous in other motels), but these paled in comparison to the location and construction. i had booked for two nights with the intention of checking out a bike ride in the area, but left after one night and headed to Nelson instead.
