You are met by the lovely Vivien who welcomes you into her home with open arms and then sits you down to freshly baked muffins and tea or coffee. Nothing is too much trouble for her and her vast knowledge of the area is invaluable. Just tell her what you would like to see and do and she will help...

A lovely place to stay while exploring Rotorua. The room was crisp, clean and very comfortable with its own decking overlooking the garden. Upon arrival, even had Mauri song drifting across from a nearby community hall. Vivian & Peter were wonderful helpful & friendly hosts with great attention to detail including tea & cakes when we first arrived and some...

This b&b is very close (walking distance) to the Redwoods forest, which features nice trails and an outlook point over Rotorua, the lake and two big geysers. It's a peaceful, relaxing place. Vivian and Peter are lovely, helpful, very dedicated hosts. Breakfast is excellent and there are always snacks available in the living room (which is a common space). Rooms...

Well where to start. We loved every minute of our stay at the Redwoods from the lovely warm welcome (with homemade cake, tea and lots of info for our stay), the local expert knowledge of both Vivian and Peter, the beautifully appointed rooms and amazing breakfast. They told us about a few "off the beaten track" locations during our stay...places...

Such a lovely welcome from Vivien. She is so amazingly organised and able to book us into this and that at the drop of a hat. We were greeted with homemade cake and a lovely cuppa and maps and guides to help plan our (too short) stay and make the most the Rotorua sights. Redwoods is a lovely contemporary house,...

We stayed at Vivian's for two nights on our gist to Rotorua, we were made very welcome from he outset and Viv gave us some extremely useful inside knowledge for the area in what to see and when to go. From a glorious walk in the Redwood forest only half a kilometre from the B&B to which attractions are best...

We booked Redwoods based on previous reviews and were not disappointed. This must be the best B&B in Rotorua without question and after a month of travelling around NZ it got our vote as the best place we stayed in. The landlady, Viv, is a superb hostess and from the minute we rang her doorbell, to the morning we left,...

Spent 2 nights in Koru suite at this lovely and well-run B&B. Although it´s only a 5min drive from downtown Rotorua, you are far away from tourist crowds flooding Rotorua. Koru Suite is well equipped and has a small balcony- ideal for sipping a glass of wine, but also a bit noisy because of the main road down at the...

We only had a brief stay at the redwoods but it was great. We managed to see a good deal of Rotorua because of the help of the hosts. The accomodation was of a brilliant quality and we felt very at home. The breakfast was lovely and we met some other nice guests and shared travel tips.
