Exceptionally clean and great location. Some things are a bit dated, but didn’t mind that. Very nice stay and nice kitchen area if you want to prepare your own meals.

We loved our stay at the Aden Motel. Our 1-bedroom unit was very clean, well appointed and modern. The beds were very comfortable. The location is great, very close to the lake and a short walk to town. The staff were also very kind and helpful.

Exceptional 10.0
Wonderful room and service.
I had a newly- remodeled room with very good air-conditioning system. Quality bedding. The room looked nice and very bright & very quiet. The manager Irene was very nice and helpful. She helped me to book the day excursion to Milford sound (both coach and cruise) in the last minute when my booking with an internet company turned out to be a hoax. She also gave me a free ride to the city center downtown so that we could get back to Queenstown by bus.

Aden motel review.
Great motel. Checkin was easy, town is obviously very touristy. Most folks pass through town for only one night to see Milford sound. Smaller place, most guests seemed to be going by rental car like me. My room did have air con which I did not need in February.
