Found our host friendly and helpful and the room excellent. Stayed an extra night. Our host even put the heating on for us in the afternoon so we would come back to a warm room. Lovely spot quiet a short stroll to all you could want.

Stayed here on 8th and 9th April 2015. We were welcomed by Robin Campbell who gave us all the necessary to minute details about the motel, information about Te Anau shops and restaurants and most importantly Robin provided us significantly important information on Milford Sound. Room 1 given to us was noisy from early morning 6am and as late as... More

We were recommended this motel by the I-Site in Wanaka, and we were really happy with it. It's a nice location close to the lake and just 15 mins stroll into town. We stayed 2 separate nights either side of an overnight cruise on Doubtful Sound and were very happy with our ground floor one bedroom apartments. They were spacious,... More

We had a lovely stay at the Red Tussock Motel and had excellent service from our host, Robin. Our room was clean, airy and very comfortable and of a good size. Robin provided us with all the local knowledge we needed for our stay in Te Anau and nothing was too much trouble. The Motel was beautifully kept with a... More

I've stayed at many hotels and motels around the world and I rate the service at this place as among the very best. Robin the host was a mine of information about the town and the attractions in the area. He was very solicitous as to how we were enjoying our holiday. The motel unit while not new was very... More

Clean and well presented, this Motel is at the end of town, so a long walk or quick drive to get to restaurants. Rolland is helpful and pleasant, the rooms are well equipped and really everything you need is there, there is no view, which if you arrive after dark is not an issue! Decor is cosy and old fashioned,... More

Stopped for a couple of nights in Feb. Massive rooms, very comfortable, clean, close to town/restaurants and very good value. Just what we needed. Robin, the owner, is great with nothing too much trouble and organised the Doubtful Sound Trip (which is brilliant) for us.

Stayed for two nights, the owner Robin was very welcoming and most helpful regarding trips, we had pre booked a trip and he rang to check on timings for us without being asked. He also suggested restaurants in the area. He had upgraded us to a larger suite so we had plenty of space, the rooms were well equipped and... More

Stayed here for three nights and were very happy with the accommodation. Robin, the owner, couldn't have been more helpful and certainly did not pressurise you into anything. He went out of his way to advise us about the area, things to do and places to eat. When we arrived he upgraded us to a very large three bedroom apartment,... More
