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

The B&B is conveniently situated. It is just near the redwood forest which is quite nice to enjoy a good walk amongst those beautiful big trees and quite close to the center of Rotorua by car. Vivien was a fantastic hostess. She gave us lots of information upon our arrival and helped us chose amongst the numerous attractions of Rotorua.... More

B&B @ the redwoods is so close to all the attractions in Rotoura but yet is quaint and tucked away from the hustle and bustle. The rooms were clean and cosy. Our hostess Vivien cooked us such an amazing breakfast and was so kind as to recommend us activities for the day. Shes one amazing woman! Thanks for the wonderful... More

My goodness - if you are visiting Rotorua soon and want to see the gorgeous Redwoods and stay in a peaceful, relaxing and warn B & B, you MUST stay at the B&B at Redwoods - right next door to the Redwoods. My young son and I stayed here in January for a few nights during the school holidays and... More

This B and B was chosen as it was slightly outside the "city" and associated sulphurous smells - the quiet location, private outside space were appreciated and it was a good place to start for getting into town, visiting the forest or the other lakes in the greater Rotorua area. I can only reiterate the previous comments - Vivien certainly... More

We sadly had only one night at this peaceful B&B, but we will return. The accommodations were lovely, contemporary and immaculate. The location very convenient to sights and town center. Vivienne, our hostess, is very knowledgable and guided us to everything we wanted to see and do. She did not disappoint!!! A must stay for anyone visiting Rotorua.

There a lot of superlatives that could be used to describe the B&B @ The Redwoods but most have been mentioned in previous reviews. The most notable for us was the host Vivian. She is very personable and makes sure every guests needs are met. She is the most cordial and accommodating host we have encountered in all our travels.... More

We stayed at the B&B @ the Redwoods in early February and loved the location, quality of the room, and Vivian's hospitality. It is very close to town and a short walk to redwood forest trails. We would highly recommend it. Bill & Marianne Maryland, USA

We chose this B & B based on Tripadvisor comments, and it could not have been better. Clean and confortable room, well located near the awesome Redwood forest, but above all this B & B gave us the opportunity of knowing our host, Vivien. We were truly treated like friends...make that like family...and our too brief stay was most enjoyable.... More
