We stayed a night here after black water rafting at Waitomo - it was about a 15 min drive. The lodge was excellent - room was large, warm & comfortable and facilities were fantastic. we used the outdoor hot tub in the middle of winter and it was amazing. Breakfast in the morning was AMAZING. would defo recommend.

we arrived cold and wet from caving nearby to be greeted with an upgrade to 2 beautiful well appointed warm rooms. Our host Julie has put so much thought into catering to all your possible needs that we could not have been happier. coupled with a delicious breakfast and some interesting conversations we only wish we could have stayed longer...

Enjoyed our stay at the Redwood lodge. Love the exterior entrance to each of their 4 rooms. We stayed in the "Kiwi" and I believe they are all very similar to one another. Julie is a great host and a great (in addition to fast) cook. Her breakfasts were really good and her menu of choices was probably the most... More

We have not stayed in a bed and breakfast before and this was a great experience. The host was welcoming, greeting us at the door. We met the resident cat who loved a big pat. Accomodation was very tidy and comfortable and breakfast was delicious.

Our road trip of New Zealand didn't allow for much time at any one spot, but the lovely B&B was a great pick for us. We had 3 of the 4 guest rooms and each was nicely furnished. The owner, Julie, was polite, friendly and accommodating. We would have loved to stay another night or two. We stayed here because... More

Redwood lodge is located very close to the Glow Worm caves, a convenient 10-15 minute drive. Our host helped us pick out which glow worm caves we should see, since there were several to choose from. We ended up going with Spellbound and loved it! Our host made the reservation for us. It was about an hour drive to Matamata,... More

We only stayed one night on our way through, but we were happy we chose this place to stay. Julie is just lovely and the bedrooms are great, comfy bed, clean room and everything we needed was supplied, including a fully cooked breakfast at whatever time we chose. We would definitely stay again.

The lodge is set in the countryside about 10 mins drive from Waitomo. The rooms are clean and large and the bed comfortable. Our host was friendly and made us feel at home. The choice for breakfast was wide and varied and the food was delicious. We enjoyed staying there and would happily do so again.

Unfortunately we arrived quite late in the evening and had to leave for our scheduled tour of the nearby caves in the morning, so we did not spend much time in this nice B&B. We were greeted warmly by the owner, which made us feel welcome and at home. The room is spacious and comfortable and can be accessed both... More

The Redwood Lodge is a bit out of town so don't give up trying to find it. This was once a gentleman's lodge and now has four rooms for guest. Everything was clean and the owner was wonderful - we really enjoyed hearing her stories of being part of the community. The bathrooms are updated and the sheets are welcoming.... More
