Thankyou for your review I would like to explain a few things the carpet had just been freshly cleaned a few days before by a professional carpet cleaner using chemical free treatment so this may be the smell you are talking about. As you can read by our other reviews our Apartments are very clean and yes perhaps a bit dated and this Apartment we sell at a budget price to reflect this so not sure if you were looking for 5 star but the price was quite a bit less than a $100 per night perhaps next time you book somewhere look at the price you are paying. This apartment is getting a facelift very soon but this will reflect the price and sometimes people want something cheep just for a place to sleep that is still clean, tidy and comfortable. If guest have any problems with there room I like it when they come and tell me as sometimes I can relocate them to a different room if space provides for this. We try to make all our guests as comfortable as possible while they stay with us but some just expect more than they are prepare to pay for a 3 star motel but dont want to pay 5 star prices making it harder on the poor motelier.

We stayed in the two-bedroom family room. The motel is clean and cozy, can see that the owner has put in lots of effort in maintaining the place (by the way, love the red flowers they planted in from of the room). Cons: low water pressure, limited kitchen space (but it has everything that we need, functional). Other than that, we were happy with our stay. Would definitely return :)

Thankyou for taking the time to give us a lovely review of your stay here at Aden Motel in one of our Two family apartments. Yes we do take pride in our apartments each year doing up an average of 4 and the one you stayed in is soon to get a new re-decoration with a large mural going into it. Both of our family apartments are good in size but yes the one you are in had a limited bench space against a modern home now a days for a family. Its nice to read great reviews that guests that are looking at us can read from someone who has stayed with us. Hope the rest of your New Zealand trip went well and have lots of photos to take home to family and friends to make them want to come.

Thought that the room that we had was a little run down and when I look at the photos on the motel website I think I am right.
The lady who checked us in was lovely and full of information and suggestions.
We were only one block away from the lake which was lovely to walk around.
Drove into the main street for dinner which was very nice.
We were given the room near the laundry and therefore didn't get any sun in the room at all, whereas all the other rooms have a sunny disposition.
The room was quiet and there was no street noise which was lovely.
Would I stay there again…of course.

Thanks for your review and choosing to stay with us at Aden Motel. the room which you booked to stay in is one of our more budget rooms on offer so the price also reflects this again one of our redecorated room which are of more value but sometime people are only staying one night and looking for a cheaper room and the one you stayed in is one of these but should you have booked a 1 bedroom or a studio these are not as dated. We are looking at re-decorating another 4 rooms over this winter again to upgrade them. Our street is very quiet most of the time as we are off the lakefront so away from the general traffic but we do not have lake views but we do have mountain view which at the moment look amazing with the snow on them,making for a quiet and comfortable nights sleep Thankyou for marking us high on the service which we try to make our guest feel at home.Cleanliness is high on our list as we are 100% chemical free cleaning so guests are not inhailing any cleaning chemical that alot of our motels use. All our rooms are shown on our website and are updated after each room has been decorated.

The Aden Motel is located on a quiet residential street close to the center of town and the lake. The hostess at check-in was very welcoming, and brought us cupcakes and milk to enjoy after we had settled into the room. The main draw for us in selecting this motel was the free wi-fi, which worked quite well and we didn't come close to using up our 1 GB allotment (although if we had the proprietress told us we we were free to drop by the front office to get our access extended).

The room was very clean and the beds quite comfortable. The table was nice as well since we were able to bring back groceries and takeaway from the center of town and relax in our room. Would not hesitate to stay here again should I return to Te Anau!

Thank you for you great review on our motel. We don't get a lot of guests from Japan so we are pleased you enjoyed you stay with us. Its nice that you made your self feel at home for your one night stay by cooking and eating in as this must be expensive on holiday plus a lot of places don't have kitchens to be able to cook. You review will help others coming from Japan and that is something that we like to see and thank you for recommending us for another stay in the future

We were a group of 4 women in the 2-bedroom unit so each person could have her own bed. The accommodations worked just fine for us - we had done our homework and knew where the motel was in relation to downtown. We found the travel advice of the proprietress very helpful as well in planning how to best spend our short allotment of time in Te Anau.

Thank you Ladies for a great review and yes you did do your research very well and our 2 Bedroom apartment suited all of you giving you all your own beds each. Yes people who only stay in Te Anau for one night or two we like them to see as much of our town as possible as we know some holidays can be short but pleased you all went away happy with both Te Anau and Aden Motel as we know reviews are a big help to other guests thinking of coming so thank you again for taking the time to help them decide just like you did from our reviews. I sure you 4 ladies will travel well into the future together again all the best.
