Clean, spacious, nicely furnished, great management people looking after you this motel is recommended. The Kitchen has a oven so you can do pizza or whatever. Fully equipped too. Showers hot. Heater works. Blinds curtains nicely block out the light for a nice sleep in.

We stayed at the Aden Motel recently, 30 years after we first stayed there! Of course much has changed. The rooms/units have new bathrooms, bedrooms, TVs, fast internet and all-in-all a really excellent experience. The hosts are lovely. The motel is quiet, well away from any noises, and there is a pleasant 10 min walk into town. Recommended unreservedly.

We had a warm welcome with a lot of great tips for restaurants for example. The apartment had everything we were looking for like comfy bed, full kitchen and clean bathroom. It's spacious and just a short walk to the waterfront.

We stayed at the Aden motel - I highly recommend it! Spotlessly clean and a lovely interior with a lsrge shower. Very spacious units. Easy Walk 10 mins along the waterfront to the town.

Nice welcome. The room was nice, good size and had all we needed. Good equipped kitchen etc. Electric blankets were an added bonus. Bathroom was ok, shower had limited hot water though. Beds comfortable. Free wifi, was good, did cut out sometimes. Peaceful area, and only a short 15 minute walk along the lake to the town.

Reasonably priced, beds were quite comfortable. Staff was very understanding about me checking in late because I had one heck of drive on the Southern Scenic Route and did not complain when I requested to check in late. She made all the arrangements and even turned on the heater for me so that I had a comfortable environment to rest...

We spent 3 nights here in early December, using Te Anau as a base for visiting Milford and Doubtful Sounds. We were made very welcome here by Mary, who was managing the motel while the owner was on holiday, and were given fresh milk and cakes on arrival. The standard twin room was clean and quiet, and well-equipped. Nice laundry...
