The lower half of this house has rooms that are rented out and is quiet, clean and nicely decorated. On arrival, Vivian treated us with delicious home baked cake and gave us lots of tips on things to do and restaurants. She was a lovely host and also made our breakfast to order. The house is located a few minutes... More

Staying at Vivien's place was like returning home--but home is in New Zealand. Clean, comfortable, and cozy, Vivien's place is a gem in Rotorua. We stayed for two nights, met cool fellow travelers, and enjoyed a long intellectual discussion over breakfast with Vivien and the other guests. Vivien also helped us to book our tours, find specific sites, and get... More

家族4人、子供2人(9歳と5歳)で滞在しました。着いてすぐに、ケーキとお茶でomotenasi. vivienはとても親切な人で、ロトルアで何をしたらよいか?おすすめの場所、おいしいレストランなど教えてくれました。今回の旅は、ニュージーランドの人たちともふれあいたいと思い、こちらの宿を選びました。結果、大正解!朝食の時には、vivianは私たちと一緒にいて、NZのことや、子育てのことなど、いろいろと話をしてくれました。その時間がロトルアで一番印象に残る時間になりました。 とても温かな気持ちになる宿です。朝食もおいしかった~。 日本のomotenasiを感じられる宿です。おすすめです。 We had a great time (with 2 kids 5 and 9 years old)at B&B @ The Redwoods, because of Vivien's excellent hospitality. She is such a wonderful person. She knows well about Rotorua,so when we arrived there,she recommended what was the best activities and the restaurant for my family. Our best memory is having conversation with Vivien,... More

Vivien is an amazing B&B hostess and that in itself was the highlight of our 2 night stay at the B&B at the Redwoods. Upon our arrival (there is a separate downstairs entrance for the guest rooms), we were greeted warmly and served coffee and cake. Vivien offered suggestions based on what we wanted to do and helped make reservations... More

Vivien was so welcoming and looked after us well. She is very knowledgable about places about the best places to visit (we walked around Blue Lake - beautiful), and the Redwood Forest is within walking distance and a must see. Lovely peaceful and comfortable room too. Highly recommended.

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
