Loved this stay! Checked 3 places, this was by far the best price/room! Robin, the mgr, was extremely helpful! Suggesting restaurants, road information, sights to stop and enjoy on the way to Milford. Incredibly accommodating! Room was large, very comfortable! Excellent location! Will stay there again!!! A++++

What a nice place to stay! A good location, only a nice ten minutes walk from the center. Robin, the manager, was really friendly and helpfull. Even turned on the heating so it was warmed up when we came back from our trip. Also the room with balcony was very spacious and had everything we needed.

We were two couples traveling together and the two bedroom appt was def way too small; living areas are great but the bedrooms too small, esp the twin bed room which has not enough space for luggage. (Would suit a couple of hobbits with no luggage:) Robin is very helpful and friendly and would have given us the 3 bedroom... More

This apartment was very clean and comfortable apart from the bedrooms. I would not recommend for two adult couples travelling together. The bedrooms are very, small. Robin the manager is most acommadating and helpful.

Robin was one of the most helpful and enthusiastic hosts that we met in New Zealand. He went beyond the call of duty. He helped us with good advice about trips up to Milford sound. The rooms were clean, warm, with all facilities you would need, comfortable, but in need of a little bit of updating. We spent two nights... More

We were recommended this motel from a lady in Wanaka. We were a family of four adults and were upgraded to the larger accommodation (size of a home) for a group of 16. Even though it was older it was very clean and we had heaps of room to move. The owner/manager was a lovely man, he could not do... More

We stayed at the Red Tussock for 2 nights in April 2014. We had a 2 bedroom apartment. The place was warm and cosy and very clean. Its a slightly older properly but well maintained and great value for money. You can walk to the main street. The owner was warm and helpful. Its a good place for a trip... More

Back in late February we stayed here as a convenient overnight stop for Milford Sound. The motel is situated on the lakeside; the rooms are clean, spacious and reasonably priced; but what set this motel apart is the very helpful and caring attitude of the owner/manager who gave us excellent advice over restaurants and cafes, and, more importantly, the timing...

This pretty Lakeside location and spacious , clean units were made all the more memorable due to the fantastic Owner , Rob .who runs the place superbly. You are given a warm welcome, great info on the area and nothing is too much trouble for him. There is a BBQ on the lawn and just a walk across the road... More

We booked this motel via Bookings.com several months in advance. We decide that the original booking was too short so ran Motel to extend stay. This was done with no problem. When we arrived we were surprised to find that we had been upgraded to a larger room. It had everything a couple could want. The rooms were spotless. Robin,... More
