Very nice location a little bit of the road with large ensuite rooms and separate entrances. Nice charning host. Every day fully cooked breakfast with fresh country eggs from the own hens and homemade muffins. Excellent stuff. Location is close to the Waitomo caves. Julie provides good, useful advices for visits and restaurants in the aerea.

Good B&B with comfortable, clean room and friendly, laid back owner. It's about a 10 minute drive from the Waitamo caves.(loved the Epic Tour). Breakfast was very good with several choices of warm cooked dishes. We enjoyed playing pool in the lounge. Definately a good choice to stay in the surroundings of the Waitamo caves.

Julie is a great hostess - full of helpful info and tips and a great cook! She welcomed us with the most delicious chocolate cookies - melt in the middle. I can remember them now...I immediately took advantage of the sauna and hot tub (spa pool they call it) to make amends... The rooms are clean and comfortable and you... More

Large ensuite rooms with own entrance, very clean and comfortable. Great facilities in a communal room near the pool, and the deck was great for an evening drink. A warm welcome from our hosts, with home baked cakes and breakfasts to set you up for the day. Very pleased we stayed here, a great start to our trip. Would recommend... More

Redwood Lodge is a simple, yet far from basic, B&B. The bed was great, the shower warm, the room clean, the breakfast eggs fresh, the home-made chocolate cookie fantastic. Host Julie was very helpful in getting me to do the right tour in nearby Waitomo Caves. I arrived late and stayed only one night so my interactions with the hosts... More

Julie was a great host and was very knowledgeable of the area and various activities. A cooked breakfast is included with plenty of options and was yum. The rooms were lovely with great facilities (pool, hot tub, pool table, communal lounge etc). Even though the lodge had other people staying there it was still quiet and relaxing. A short drive...

Julie is a wonderful host and a great cook. The breakfast is included in your lodging and it shouldn’t be missed. Your host is very friendly and can recommend local restaurants for you. The lodge is a little out of the way, and not exactly in Ototohanga, but very close to the Waitomo Glow Worm caves which makes it a... More

Julie, Donovan, and their daughter made our stay at the Redwood Lodge a fond memory. We will definitely return, and highly recommend their facility. Breakfast was wonderful, and the place was just charming. They are great examples of New Zealand hospitality. They even went out of their way to give us information on local attractions and a great restaurant as... More
