We ferried over from the north island and stayed the night in Picton. It's a lovely little town for families with a wonderful playground on the harbor. We stayed in one of the two suites and were pleased with what we got for the price. The suite was very spacious with two bedrooms, a kitchen with a stove, and a...

Arrived after quite an eventful few days and was greater by lovely hosts always willing to help and give great service! The motel was in a great location near to travel links, the harbour, and main St and across from the local grocery store. The room was always kept clean, great facilities, and nicely decorated. Would 100% stay again and...

The hotel room was very cute. Two beds on the bottom floor and a loft with two extra beds. The clerk at the front desk was very polite and offered a choice of milk to go with coffee in the morning. That's better then those little milk packets you usually see in the hotels. There are plenty of cooking appliances...

The accommodation was clean. Reception staff were nice. Room was quiet small so laying bags out was difficult. Not well designed. We were in the room right at the front near reception so very very noisy. Not a good last night in Picton.

Thank you for your response which is helpful to us in improving our facilities. Sometimes during this very busy time guests maybe placed in less than ideal units through necessity or price related issues. Thanks again for your comments.

Lovely motel, the owner was very friendly and helpful. Stayed in the spa unit and it was lovely after a ferry trip to relax in. Nice clean spacious room, only thing missing were paper towels for cleaning the bbq before use. Overall, it is a lovely motel and I'd be happy to stay again.

Stayed here in November during our stay in Picton. Very good location to cafes/restaurants/shops and waterfront. We had a beautiful room overlooking the water. Motel just across the street from supermarket, so good for stocking up on supplies. Staff very friendly, and helpful.

Aldan Lodge Motel is convenient for the town and ferry, yet quietly situated. Rooms are clean, comfortable and with all the usual facilities. Not remarkable in any way but excellent value with a friendly reception (though just about everywhere in NZ was very friendly).

This really may be the best motel in NZ in its price bracket! Efficient, friendly reception. Easy access to room via vehicle and on foot. Well located walk to shops, restaurant, pubs and water front. Spacious comfortable room was spotless and well appointed. Even a plunger and ground coffee provided! Would definitely stay here again.

My partner and I had a quick stop over in Picton on a trip through the South Island. We found Aldan Lodge to be perfect for our needs within quick walking distance to the main street and very welcoming hosts. Would definitely stay again.
