Great little traditional kiwi motel. Very comfortable bed, clean and full facilities an easy walk to town. The owners were friendly and offered us a choice of rooms - both of which were nice. Would reccomend as this motel is better than many that cost a lot more.
Such a quiet but convenient motel. The lake walk access is across the road, a few seconds and you are at the lake, turn left for DOC and the bird sanctuary (approx 10 min walk) or right to get to the town centre. Clean, comfortable room with a lovely bed, heat pump, kitchen facilities-everything you could need. Free wifi. Outside areas to enjoy the peace, bbq,birdlife and a wee garden to pick some herbs or vege for your dinner. Trampoline and swing for the children. The staff were lovely, going out of their way to make my trip comfortable and easy. Obvious attempts to be as sustainable as possible,awesome to see. 100% reccomend this motel, can't wait to go back.
I spent five nights at the Aden, using it as a base to explore the area. The hotel is well located; reasonably priced; with spacious, comfortable, and impeccably decorated rooms. Units have been refurbished to a very high and tasteful standard. All the services and amenities were in good order and worked well - internet, laundry, heating and so on. The kitchens and bathrooms are modern, and are thoughtfully provided with quality appliances, cooking and serving needs, linens, towels, and toiletries. Irene and David are knowledgeable about the area, consistently helpful, and completely service orientated. I heartily recommend the Aden if you plan to be in Te Anau!
Such a gem of a find, spotlessly clean, super comfortable, the bed was so cozy and even had an electric blanket. The decor is cute kiwiana. Perfectly appointed in every way, but the best thing is the amazing Irene who owns it, so incredibly helpful when our car broke down and we needed to leave it with her to be repaired while headed off to Doubtful Sound. Can’t rate this place more highly A+++
we liked the Aden Motel as it was affordable, clean and tidy. The best thing for me was that it supports the planet by using Forest and Bird hand soaps, shampoos and body care dispensers in the bathroom. Aden motel also uses compostable rubbish bags, recycle bins and less waste. There is a good outdoor space for the kids and they accept pets - yah! The manager Irene was most accommodating when we had to change our dates and she also posted some clothing that we left behind to us - at no charge! Good Kiwi Hospitality!
