“Vivien was the most amazing host and so easy to get on with, a real gem.”
Reviewed March 22, 2010

This B&B was modern, spacious, immaculate yet so homely that you felt like part of the family. We instantly liked Vivien's bubbly personality which shone through her professional approach. Great location near to the Redwood trails and the town centre. Vivien gave us detailed advice on our visits to Wai-o-Tapu Thermal Wonderland, Waimangu Volcanic Valley, Mitai Maori village and the Polynesian spa which proved to be invaluable. This helped us get the most from our two night stay in Rotorua. An excellent place to explore the Rotorua area. We loved it and will definitely stay there again next time we're in that area.

Vivien & Peter were excellent hosts during our stay in Rotorua. Our room was very comfortable with direct access to the garden. Vivien in particular had lots of advice on activities and arranged our evening at Te Puia. Breakfasts were very generous and one evening Vivien cooked us a lovely 3 course meal with the best pavlova I have ever tasted. The guest lounge had tea & coffee making facilities available and comfortable seating and a glass of wine could be shared in the evening.

We stayed only one night at the Redwoods, but Vivien Cooper made us feel at home and our accomodations were outstanding in every way. It is sited a few blocks from the town center and right next to a beautiful stand of redwoods where you can take a relaxing stroll.

Staying with Peter & Vivien was a real treat. They are wonderful hosts, truly interested in making your stay comfortable and enjoyable. Our interaction with them and other guests was one of the highlights of our NZ vacation. Vivien's breakfast are superb. Thank you, Vivien, for making us those Canadian-style blueberry pancakes - absolutely delicious! Free wireless internet is rare and much appreciated, as is the laundry service. The guest rooms and lounge area are separate from the family living area, with its own entrance, which is nice as it gives both the guests and hosts privacy.

This is a lovely bed and breakfast with spacious rooms and additional living space. We travelled with our two teenage boys and Vivienne made us all feel very welcome. She was a wonderful host, full of local information and helpful tips. Lovely breakfast and afternoon teas. It is in a residential location so you do really need a car to get around.

My husband and I stayed at the Redwoods B&B during our summer break, and had a wonderful time. The rooms are very quiet and peaceful, the facilities are first class and Peter and Vivien are the consummate hosts. Viven's breakfasts are superb. The location is very central for exploring Rotorua and its surroundings and the Redwoods forest nearby is very special. My husband went for a walk in the forest early in the morning, and thought it was such a treat to be able to do that close to where we were staying

We had the best time in Rotorua thanks to the advice of our encredible hosts! The rooms are very spacious and well kept. Breakfast is alo very good. It was like home away from home.
The B&B is very close to town but in a very calm street next to the redwoods forest.
