Although this is a small motel, my family loved it. This place is spotless. The kettle is very clean. The guy over at the front reception is very accommodating and kind. They even made sure we get our continental breakfast in time before our early check out. Will definitely recommend this to friends.

The Aldan Lodge Motel is a family run motel in Wellington St in Picton. It is clean, comfortable, well located, great value for money and the new owner, from South Africa is enthusiastic, friendly and a lovely host. The established motel has everything going for it to be a successful venture for Greg and his family including their 12 year...

Arrived here after a hectic previous week. We were impressed with the rooms - spotlessly clean and spacious. Supermarket across the road for convenience. Quiet location. My husband is disabled, travel agent had made an error in booking. But shower and bathroom were suitable for his needs. The owner had only just taken over the business two days earlier, but...

Stayed at this motel for 3 nights, sight unseen and was pleasantly surprised with all aspects of the accommodation. Clean comfortable rooms, good showers and cooking facilities. The hosts were most friendly and obliging. The motel is situated a short walk from Picton's many attractions. Supermarkets and bottleshop close by. Overall very impressed and would stay here again without hesitation.

This was overnight after the ferry from Wellington and then on the way back. A very comfortable room and within easy walking distance of the shops, restaurants. We were towing a car on a trailer and there was plenty of room for parking.

A lovely motel to stay at - no sea views and across the road from a supermarket plus a downhill walk to the waterfront. The motel was extremely clean, with tea making facilities, a microwave/fridge, situated in a quiet area. The owners were very pleasant to deal with. Ideal for travellers with a car or without a vehicle. I would...

Just an overnight break in a long road trip and ferry crossing. The unit was modern, clean and close to town centre and waterfront views. We did not want to spend time in the town as we had a long drive next day to get to Christchurch. The motel was far better than we needed and I am syre that...

This is awesome for family and couple needs. The family rooms have a loft with two single beds and a TV. The room was very tidy and the kitchen was quite big. One thing that stood out was the room had quite a big shower.

We stayed in the family room. It was very spacious, clean and comfortable. We enjoyed having a spa bath and the kitchen/dining was well catered for, you could cook a proper meal in there The person at the front desk was lovely! Can't fault the place and would definitely stay next time we are in the area.
