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

Very comfortable stay with great facilities; we didn't use the hot tub or pool but enjoyed using the sauna and pool table. Honesty drinks fridge was a great idea, breakfast was delicious. Very welcoming family and a lovely stay in this great location.

We enjoyed Julie's hospitality for one night. She was very helpful with recommendations and directions. (Like Hu Hu's restaurant in Waitomo. Superb!) Our king bed was exceptionally comfortable and the room was clean and pleasant. Breakfast around the table was delicious and offered the chance to hear other's travel tips and stories. There are some mosquitos and no window screens,... More

The Redwood Lodge is located in the countryside between Otorohanga and Waitomo, and is a big rambling building, deceptively bigger than it looks from the driveway. We arrived in the afternoon after taking in the caves in Waitomo and the Kiwi park in Otorohanga, to Loch barking and Alexis hanging out the kitchen window and waving to us, and learned... More

My husband and I recently stayed at Redwood Lodge for 1 night and wish we had gotten to stay longer. It was a short drive from Waitomo Caves and Otorohanga and very comfortable. We didn't enjoy the gym, spa, pool or sauna but I am sure those are lovely in the warmer months. Our hostess was fantastic and was helpful... More

After a busy day driving and then enjoying the stunning Waitomo Caves and glow worm experience Redwood lodge was just what we needed. Our host were friendly and very helpful.
