Our family from the US stayed at Redwoods in July. We couldn't have asked for a more lovely greeting from Vivian...she made us feel right at home with her homemade cake and tea, and made sure that we were well prepared for all of the attractions we had in mind. She is such a delight to talk to...warm, friendly and... More

The stay at the B&B @ The Redwoods was a delightful experience. Vivian is a "doll" greeting us warmly and going over and above to make us feel welcome. Her lemon fruit cake, tea and helpful advice made us feel extra special. Our luggage was lost by the airlines and Vivian personally called them on several occasions advocating for us... More

We were visiting from the USA and spent a couple nights at the Redwoods B&B. Vivien went out of her way to make us feel comfortable on our national holiday. The property is ideally situated close to the redwood forest. We rented bikes from the bike shop across the street and used that as our transportation in Rotorua. The mountain... More

We have recently returned from a 2 night stay at Redwoods B&B. We arrived unannounced but Vivien was happy to provide us with accommodation even though she had just returned from family vacation. The B&B is located in a quiet part of town and away from the "fragrances" that characterise much of Rotarua. The rooms are spacious, sunny and extremely... More

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....
