Loved my room, best seat in the house, and made me feel very calm, it had the Purakanui Falls as wallpaper, but it felt like I could have actually been there. Rooms were lovely, decor was very restful and well co-ordinated. Very quiet surroundings considering there were lots of other motels around. Management were amazing.

Irene and David make this an incredibly friendly place to stay. They are happy to help if you need it, or just glad to chat if you have time. The room was spacious and comfortable. It really felt like home. And the amazing flower garden made me envious!

I've stayed in a few places around New Zealand and Aden Motel was definitely my favourite. The rooms are lovely and I had a great sleep. The owner and staff are also very nice and welcoming. Free wifi is a bonus! I would definitely recommend.

Typical single storey motel accommodation with pleasing attention to detail by eco-friendly management. Nice touches include a car wash facility (plenty of unsealed roads hereabouts!)children's play area and small help-yourself salad garden. Very quiet position yet within 2 minutes walk of Lake Te Anau and the Fiordland NP visitor centre. Town centre amenities are a 10 minute stroll away or...
