Located in just the right place for access to the forest and lake attractions of Rotorua. Vivenne was an engaging and thoughtful host making our visit very easy and providing lots of useful information. An outstanding cook, our breakfasts were delightful with an impromptu discussion about blueberry pancakes producing the best I have eaten the next morning. With a winter... More

Perfect place to stay in Rotorua in all aspects. Vivien is a great host, she was waiting for me at the bus station and helped a lot during my stay with lots of information, recommendations and tips on what to see around. She prepared home made cakes and coffee, just as a super Mom. The breakfast was really yummy, freshly... More

This was really a nice place to stay, the rooms were very private with everything you could ask for. Great wifi and very cosy. The dining and lounge was well stocked with extras such as fruit and cake for snacks and the breakfast was comprehensive. The host Vivien was quickly able to gauge what we were interested in and steered... More

Owners are lovely and provide some great advice on what to see and do. The rooms are very well laid out and warm (if you were to travel in winter). The breakfast is very tasty. I would definitely stay again on my next visit to Rotorua.

Lovely welcome from Vivien, who made you feel at home immediately. We were welcomed with tea and homemade cake and lots of information on the area and places to visit. Breakfast was excellent and sharing with other guests made the visit more special, especially with visitors from another country.

Vivien and Peter were wonderful hosts who looked after me perfectly. Vivien collected me from the bus station, gave sound advice on how to achieve my aims in the short time I had available and, despite a busy life with family and activities in the town, still had time to spend in conversation with her guests and make delicious cakes....

This was our first ever stay in a B&B and we had a very pleasant stay at B&B Redwoods, Rotorua. Vivien is a very welcoming host and made our family ( 2 adults and 2 young children) very much at home. Vivien was gracious to accommodate our last minute request for a vegetarian dinner for us which was delicious -... More

If we could have given 6 stars we would have. Vivien and Peter are kind, lovely and welcoming hosts. Vivien was most helpful in recommending activities and helping us book them. What a comfortable room and breakfast area. My daughter and I felt like we were staying with longtime friends. Thank you Vivien, Peter for making our stay memorable. We... More

Thanks Vivien for a great stay, you went out of your way to make us welcome right down to the muffins and cake on our arrival. Excellent location and easy to find. Rooms are very comfortable and quiet. Thanks Gail and John.
