Redwood Lodge is a sensational quiet country setting with easy access to the Waitomo caves. Julie the host was very accommodating and friendly and added to our holiday experience. Her breakfasts and dinner were a must for the quality of the meals and the company and conversation. Julie loves a chat and is a great source of knowledge about the... More

Plus: Decent size room, nice deck, hot tub, good bathroom fixtures, clean. Comfortable bed. Negatives: Ironically, in the middle of nowhere but RIGHT next to a dog kennel and barking may be an issue. Although you may get the idea from this site and owners web site that Julie is quite the cook, I found this not to be the... More

It was a quick visit (one night), but we greatly enjoyed our stay at Redwood Lodge. The setting is lovely and we greatly enjoyed a dinner by the chef. Make sure you plan ahead for dinner -- it is great. A great place to relax and enjoy the lovely countryside.

The hosts welcomed us warmly despite late arrival and made us feel really comfortable. Juliet - not only an excellent cook but a great consultant for planning your local adventures - was accommodating all our wishes and more than helpful organising everything. The breakfast was delicious - with the choice being ours, including the time for serving. It might as... More

The hospitality and efficiency of our hostess Julie made this New Zealand experience one to remember. She went out of her way to make us comfortable in her home. She took time to help us research the best caving option for us for our Waitomo Caves experience. Her amazing breakfast options were a wonderful way to start our day. With... More

The lodge is set in a spacious grounds, our room was large and well-appointed and the food Julie provided was really special. We were only there one night to visit the Waitomo caves and the location is ideal for that, being only a few minutes drive away but secluded. Julie was a great host and we wished we could have...

We enjoyed our stay at Redwood Lodge. It is situated in the countryside, in a beautiful rural area. The room was very clean, spacious and comfortable. The grounds are lovely, with a pool and an outside sitting area. Julie was very welcoming and friendly. She provided us with a lot of information about the area. We placed our "breakfast order"...

A little rural gem, set in beatuiful countryside. The rooms were spotlessly clean, well appointed and the atmosphere very relaxed with a nice welcoming touch of a couple of cookies in our room on arrival. Julie was a great host and the choice of breakfast was extensive Would stay there again if I was in the area
