If you're going to Rotorua , this is a great place to stay. Vivien is an amazing host, great cook, guide of things and place to eat and go and very socially intelligent. Some travel tours will try to put you up at the Holiday Inn down the road. Stay here instead. You won't be disappointed. A short ride to... More

The Redwoods is a lovely place to stay if you want peace and quiet and a lovely host. Vivienne is so welcoming and interesting to talk to. The rooms are lovely and the B&B is nice and central to most things in Rotorua.

Thanks Vivien for a wonderful nights stay. Truly magical. Great location, very handy to the forest nearby and close to town as well. Nice and warm and very friendly host. Will definitely be recommending to friends.

Rotorua is not really a place to stay apart from the redwoods around the corner of the B&B. So therefore a perfect location. The room was fine with a little outdoor terrace. Nice for eating outside after a day visiting the different lakes and springs. Not a city location and maybe just fine for that, since Rotorua has not a... More

We had an excellent stay, Vivien is an exceptional host who organised our day in Rotorua from start to finish at Hell's Gate, as well as arranging massages and transfers. Vivien was very welcoming and friendly, and an excellent host without being over bearing. Our room was clean and warm, and returning from our day out to the electric blanket... More

We had a lovely 2 night stay. Great location - close to the Redwoods Forest and only a short drive from the town centre. We were greeted on arrival by Vivien who was an excellent host, making us feel part of the family - she had even baked us a cake! Her local knowledge was invaluable and made our trip... More

Ideally placed for a walk in the redwoods but a drive into town centre. A warm and informative welcome awaits (plus cake). Vivien is a mine of information and an agent for local attractions. The room was a good size and had a charming if small verandah overlooking the garden (warning - steep drop so don't venture out without a... More

Viviens advice about local attractions caters to our needs exactly. She really understands her guests. The room was very clean, and had a very nice en suite bathroom. She made breakfasts as requested, on time and above our expectations. Very close to the redwood forests and beautiful waling trails. She is a very environmentally conscious host, which was important to... More
