Red Tussock was very spacious for the 6 of us. 3 bedrooms plus a bed in the living room. my tween kids loved the trampoline. Very easy walk to the main street
The decor is a bit dated but otherwise very comfortable.
Very nice and helpfull owner. Good internet.
Very clean, modern and well equipped accommodation. Very friendly and helpful manager. Close to DOC.
10 minutes walk to the centre.
Robin, the hotel manager, was very helpful to make our stay in Te Anau a memorable one. The apartment was huge.
I don't usually give all excellent ratings to anywhere I stay, but we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Red Tussock. In large part due to Robin who took very good care of us. He helped with bookings, advice on where to stay later in our travels and gave us an upgraded room. The location seems a bit out of the center but you can walk the street behind the motel to a path that takes you right into town in less than 10 minutes. Very enjoyable.
For the price we paid, it was great.
Helpful Staff - tried very hard to provide good customer service.
Lots of signs and instructions. While helpful, it tended to be "over the top" but the intentions were good.
Very comfortable with everything you need. Very helpful owner
Only 1 washing machine available to guests
Loved the location and the host. Robin has been super friendly and exceptionally knowledgeable about what there was to do around Te Anau. He also went the extra mile by leaving a bottle of bubbly in our room when he found out we were on our honeymoon. The room was clean and cozy - perfect place for exploring Te Anau and the Fiordlands! Two thumbs up!
Nice clean units. Well appointed kitchen.
Sleeps 5 but the 5th bed is a very uncomfortable sofa bed which is very uncomfortable to sit on let alone sleep on!
Great work from Robin; made for a much better experience.
The motel is spacious and clean. It is also near to town center and also near to the route to Milford Sound. The person in charge is helpful and able to give good suggestions on the places to visit.
The baby cot is damage and this motel has only one baby cot. The baby chair also cannot be secure properly. It should get new baby cots and baby chairs in view of baby safety.
Nice Robin and good suggesion
Accommodation clean and comfortable to stay and staffs so helpfull and friendly.
Nothing everything perfect I will recommend this accommodation to my friends.
Robin was very informative and accommodating.
The location of the motel and the efficiency of the staff.
The weather on the day we arrived
Owner Robin is a really nice person, very helpful with knowledge of Te Anau. We had a view of the lake from our unit which was great. Good value. Pauline & Malcolm
Great to have a 2 bedroom apartment as we were 2 couples travelling together. Good location
Cleanliness. Walking distance from town. Very helpful manager that went out of his way to provide information about activities.
everything was very clean and we well looked after
Nothing was too much trouble and we were pointed in all the right directions to spend our limited time. It is an older style motel but it is comfortable, very clean and spacious. Would stay again.
We spent one night at the red tussock motel last weekend. Robin was very friendly and helpful and didnt mind us checking in a bit early. It was great we were able to take our little dog with us and that he was allowed inside the unit. The unit was very clean and comfortable. Great waterfront location and easy walk to town. Will stay here again.
Rod was a superb host full of relevant information and very attentive.Our room was excellent , clean and very spacious
NOTHING, it was all good
We liked everything about the place. Robin, the manager especially! He gave us an upgrade from what we had reserved, which was a very nice surprise. The room was in great shape and comfortable. We had everything we needed plus lots of helpful advice from Robin. And he worked with us when there was a mix-up on the use of the washer/dryer allowing us to get our laundry done before we left.
The manager was so friendly and obliging. The location was fantastic. A short walk along a beautiful lake front to the main shopping centre. The room was absolutely spotless. The visitors center across the road had some really interesting displays and information.
Nothing. Everything was great
The owner went out of his way to cater for our stay and logistics involved with starting and finishing the Kepler Track and what our needs would be when we returned from 4 nights in the bush!
