Picton is a port town - most travellers would visit there on their way to catch the ferry to the North Island. We were no exception, staying there for one night in July. Great and very friendly service. Clean and warm rooms. A nice DVD collection at reception. Some internet is offered for free and then after that there incurs... More

We stayed one night at the beginning of a 4 week South Island tour. My friend had a long international and national flight then a ferry crossing. I had hoped I had booked a comfortable and clean motel for her first night in New Zealand, I was not disappointed. We had everything we needed, the staff were delightful, there was... More

I recently stayed here before boarding the ferry back to the North Island. The room was nice and large with a large flat screen tv. It was well appointed, with a kitchen. The room was exceptionally clean, with strong wifi. The manager was very nice and even stood out in the cold directing me to where to park. It is... More

We visited Aldan Motor Lodge during our holiday in May. We planned to stay in Picton for just two nights but enjoyed the friendly helpful people that own and operate this place so much that we spent 5 nights. Wineries, food and cruises will absorb you for an extended experience at Aldan Motor Lodge. Highly recommend this place.

Location- superb! Unit - superb! Price - superb! What more can I say? Free WIFI, very clean and roomy, and quiet! We only stayed for the one night and unfortunately Picton is very quiet during the week so we visited the local takeaway and ate in. Would I stay again - ABSOLUTELY !!

Gary was lovely and very friendly. Cleaner and much nicer than we expected would definitely recommend. A lot of space for family. Free videos and was quiet location. Opposite supermarket and easy walk into town. Our only complaint was the upstairs window that opened too easily and didn't have a lock . Very unsafe for children and a young child... More

This motel attracted us because it was only about 600 metres from the ferry terminal. If arriving on the evening ferry from Wellington, it is an excellent stop-off for the drive to Golden Bay the next day. Conversely, on the return journey, you have a two minute drive to the vehicle check-in the following morning. Aside from this convenience, the... More

Friendly staff and resident cat. Just across the road from the supermarket. No problem minding our luggage when we walked the Queen Charlotte Track. Late check out on our last day was appreciated. Would stay there again.

We were on a tour of New Zealand and we stayed at this motel after the ferry crossing. The motel was average and was close to the port and town centre in a row of motels/hotels. The bed was firm and the bathroom was functional. There were a number of restaurants in walking distance. The wifi was good.
