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

Our lovely friendly host brought freshly baked cup cakes when we arrived, the went down really well after a long drive. Our room was very smart and well appointed, spotlessly clean and the bed is the most comfortable we have ever slept in, we wish we could of taken it home! Breakfast was excellent with lots of choice.

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

My wife & I stayed for 3 nights. We loved the whole experience & would stay there again. Julie was a great hostess & nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was yummy, bed very comfortable, & overall we have no complaints.

My husband and I stayed here on our trip south with our 1 year old daughter. Julie was accommodating of our changing plans and went out of her way to be welcoming. The room was spacious, with all the necessities and the bed was super comfortable. We enjoyed our stay and the delicious breakfast so much that we decided to... More

Our family of three stayed here in June for two nights -- we had plenty of space, enjoyed the quiet location that was out of town (but not too far to go for dinner). Julie was a most gracious host, breakfast was delicious, and the homemade chocolate chip cookies were most appreciated! My daughter enjoyed the chance to meet the... More

My son and I stayed here a few weeks ago.......My only regret is that we were only there for one night and we did not get a chance to use any of their facilities. Our hosts were very accommodating and personable. The accommodations were very nice and the location convenient to the activities in the Waitomo area. Breakfast was delish!... More

If the rating of this bed and breakfast was one feather (Qualmark) rather than four, I would believe its rating system. The room was very comfortable but the upkeep of the home was below par and the breakfast needed some serious attention.

This was our first night in new Zealand. We wicked up a car in Auckland and wended our way south to Redwood lodge. By the time we arrived ( late afternoon) we were exhausted, the combination of a long flight from the US and learning to negotiate right wheel driving had extracted its toll. Julie met us with gracious charm,... More
