The motel is just over the road from the supermarket which is handy as the kitchen is well equipped. It is very clean and the hosts are most welcoming. Email facilities are welcome.

This was really a perfect no-hassle-easy-going stop over stay. People were extremely friendly, we could check out late and got a beer instead of the obligatory milk on request. what more does one want for a short stay.
room were comfortable and everything in walking distance.
Very good value in addition!
Very recommended!

A lovely motel, nicely decorated and very convenient - just one street back from the main street and 10-15 minutes walk to the waterfront and ferry terminal. Parking right outside your door. Pleasant and helpful owners. The room is not large but more than adequate with a small kitchenette, table and chairs and nice ensuite. Spotlessly clean and would definitely stay there again. It's also opposite a small shopping mall with supermarket, an excellent cafe, chemist, etc.

Great location for exploring the sounds and Marlborough area. It's easy walking distance to the waterfront, shops, restaurants and bars. The service was outstanding and the owners were more than helpful in arranging wine tours, boating tours and other activities. Our room was recently renovated, modern, and exceptionally clean with full kitchen facilities. We would definitely stay at the Aldan Lodge Motel again.

We, too, picked the Aldan out of Jason's, and couldn't have been more pleased. Yes, it's a chain - but it's a chain with friendly owners who gave us great advice about exploring the area. They also sent on some articles we'd left behind, and did so with grace.

Room Tip: We had a downstairs room with a king bed and sofa.

The bedroom was inadequate, very small, did not enjoy our stay. It was clean, good location but typical chain motel.

full kitchen with very clean facilities and friendly helpful owners. Lots of little pluses to this hotel, new flat screen TV with DVD player and free new movies to check out at main desk, free internet and on site laundry. More affordable than the 3 hotels that are on that block.
