      The motel owner was super accommodative.let us check in early without extra charge.motel was neat and very tidy.cooking utensils were sufficient but we have a bit of difficulty to heat up the stove.the stove is super cool and antique!!!

      Would be great if heater was working just fine

      The room was pre-heated. The proprietor offered advice on nearby activities. The unit was clean & well equipped.

      Very nice apartment but dont bother paying extra for a lakeview room as the view is from the small balcony. Good laundry available, and room is very well appointed. A little out of town, but very quiet We received excellent assistance in recovering our credit card from the management..

      The manager is not actually on site, so occasionally is not there.

      Felt like a traditional kiwi motel.

      Staff were helpful and the room was tidy and clean. Excellent location next to the DOC information centre with a view of the lake. The studio unit was warm with double window glazing and self controlled heating. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend.

      The extractor fan over the hot plate didn't seem to operate.

      The Red Tussock Motel was very clean, tidy, warm & comfortable. We would be happy to stay there again and were pleased we had extended our stay to 2 nights. It is conveniently located to the town centre and just across the road from the lake front - lovely walking very close by.

      Not too far from downtown. Great start for trip to Milton Sound. 2-bedroom apartment had nice sized lounge, eating area, & well stocked kitchen.

    • Group of friends
      6.6

      Private room, well equipped kitchen.

      Ideally we would have wanted two doubles not a double and a twin

    • Older travelers

      Lovely balcony view of the lake, attractive, clean and comfortable and quiet. Loved the kitchenette as I have dietary restrictions and being able to prepare a couple of my meals a day makes a huge difference to me. Would definitely stay here again.

      The manager is very nice and helpful. The room is very cozy and handy.

    • Older travelers

      Comfortable room and good location close to the lake. The owner was very helpful in suggesting places to eat and things to see, and waived the internet charge when checking out.

      This wasn't a problem as it turned out but, on arrival, the owner had no record of our Booked.net reservation. We still got the type of room we'd asked for so no dramas.

    • Older travelers

      The location was very good. Enjoyed the scenery and was a good driving distance from both Milford Sound and Queenstown.

      We were disappointed that the facilities included only1 small bathroom and was not very accommodating for 2 adult couples. Other facilities were okay.

    • Older travelers
      9.2

      Had all the inclusions expected in a self contained ensuite unit with friendly and helpful staff

    • Older travelers
      8.8

      Very clean and spacious. All common facilities are available.

      a lit bit far from city centre, but still within walking distance.

    • Older travelers

      Our stay at the Red Tussock Motel was great. Our studio apt. was clean and well stocked for two. Jane was knowledgeable about the local attractions and the area in general and very pleasant to get along with. She can hook you up with any of the cruises from the Motel. The Motel is across the street from the Lake. Sixty second walk to the water and plenty of ducks to feed if you should be so inclined. Thanks Jane and Vivian for a great stay.
