Robin was so helpful - anything we needed to know he either knew or found out, best places to eat, when to visit Milford, where to put the boat in. Though our unit was older it was spotlessly clean and suited our family perfectly.
Great customer service
Large updated room with kitchen area and nice bath. Exudes pride of ownership. Easy walk to town along the picturesque shoreline. Would stay here again.
Nothing to dislike.
This was a very practical motel ,having everything we needed .The décor is a bit dated,but the price reflected that given the facilities were so good.The manager was extremely attentive and helpful.
The décor is a bit dated, but our family did not care about that as we were there to explore the region,not to look at the furnishings.
We'll run establishment rooms were tidy and everything catered foe
Road noise in the morning
Friendliness of the staff. Manager went out of his way to help. Will make trip bookings for you at no extra cost Highly recommended!
Nothing to dislike!
Very large apartment with big kitchen with all equipment and ok sized bed-rooms. Very helpful host Robin, he helped us with our washing when we went to Milford sounds.
Quiet, clean, comfortable place.
Robin was a super host! He was helpful and great attitude-very efficient. We loved the kitchen facilities and the closeness to town. They are generous with their wifi and we got good connection.
Robin was an excellent host. He gave us so many tips about getting around and the places to eat. We are a family of 4 and Robin upgraded us to a big apartment which can accommodate more than 12 pax! Comes with free wifi and carpark. The motel is a stone throw from the lake front and about 10 mins walk to the town centre and shops. They have a few excellent restuarants there but remember to book first.
Lovely place, across the road from the lake and a short walk to town. Great helpful manager. Would recommend to others.
The motel is located straight across from lake, national park office, and a quick walk to the main city center where I-site and all the shopping and restaurants are. As for the room itself, the decor is a little dated but the kitchen is nicely equipped. It even has a stove if you wanted to cook in. Very accommodating staff!
The setup in the bathroom. It has a full tub, which is great, but if you use the shower, the built-in shower panel needs to go farther out. Each time I showered the spray from the shower made the entire bathroom floor wet. Perhaps a simple shower curtain or a built-in shower door would work better.
The host was just lovely, very helpful.
Stayed one night so didn't use much of the facilities. Location is good, several restaurants in the neighborhood.
We stayed in the second floor and had to carry the heavy suitcases up the stairs.
Good staff, good environment, excellent service quality, quite enjoy the day in red tussock motel.
Robin was so helpful and provided us with all the information we needed. He also upgraded us to a three bedroom apartment which was a lovely!
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!
