Great location near the lake and within walking distance to town. Irene and David were a pleasure to talk to and the small cakes upon check-in were a lovely gesture. Small touches make all the difference and this motel has then in abundance. Would recommend to anyone visiting Te Anau

My family and I stayed here for one night in March. Overall we had a good stay (lovely and friendly reception including cupcakes, Spacious rooms etc) but there are some definite areas for improvement. Would recommend having screens on the windows (so you can have the windows open without worrying about sandfly bites). Would also recommend clearly indicating reception hours...

Stayed here two nights as a stopping point for our adventure over to Milford Sound. This is a great little location for exploring the town of Te Anau and as a jumping point for Milford Sound.

Te Anau is a very handy (not to mention scenic) location for a large number of outdoor attractions around Otago. For example it is 2 hours closer to Milford sound than Queenstown. I based myself here for 7 days while doing the Routeburn track and Doubtful sound, while also checking out local attractions such as the glow-worm caves. Aden Motel...

It’s great to read a review from someone whom had really enjoyed Te Anau and you stayed 7 days and kept yourself very busy as the majority of guest are just one night stop overs on the way to Milford Sound and have not bothered to researched Te Anau at all to see that you can do so much more...

From the moment we checked in and Irene greeted us warmly (and with cupcakes), we felt at home. Aden Motel is a small but generously appointed motel in Te Anau. We had a 2 bedroom apartment. It was spacious, clean and well appointed. The bathroom was updated and the kitchen was well equipped with everything needed. Irene was so helpful,...
