The two rooms here are simple and well-designed, with a nice view into the owners' green and leafy back yard and a sitting room just for guests. Opt for the larger room if it is available. Everything that you need is provided. Breakfast is to order and very good. The real treat at B&B at the Redwoods is the owner, Vivian, who tried harder than any B&B owner we have ever seen to please us and help us enjoy our visit. She has lived in Rotorua for a long time and knows the best places to go and who runs what. She can advise on good hikes, good restaurants, and the best Maori hana to go to. This is the place to stay.

Vivian and Peter are very welcoming hosts. You are made to feel like part of the family.
The accomodation was self contained well maintained and clean. Breakfast is substantial
Vivian was very helpful in suggesting places to go and where to eat, so our suggestion would be "Seismic" by the lake.
5 minutes walk from the B&B is a Redwood forest which is worth taking a stroll around and beyond that is the blue and green lake which is worth a look as it is a little off the tourist trail.
You would be hard pushed to beat staying here at the Redwoods.

Viv and Pete's B&B will make you want to stay a few more days in Rotorua. The rooms are modern and cosy, opening up to your own deck overlooking the garden. You have a private entrance plus a quiet separate lounge and dining. Viv makes breakfasts that will get you taking photos before you tuck in. Really good. Pavlova is New Zealand's national dessert, it seems, and Viv should enter hers in a best NZ pavlova contest. The wonderful redwoods forest is just a stroll away - don't miss it.

We stayed in Rotorua for two nights. This bed and breakfast was situated in the suburbs so was quieter than central town. Our host was brilliant, providing us with information on the local attractions and discount vouchers for those attractions. Our room was beautiful with doors out into the lovely garden. The room was clean, well decorated and comfortable. We had a continental breakfast whilst staying hear which was nice, however our host did provide cooked breakfasts to those individuals who prefere that. I would recommend this B&B to other couples.

The GPS led us straight to the house in a quiet road close to town. The room is excellent with all the facilities you need and there is a spacious lounge that can be used for reading etc.
Viv made us both very welcome and gave us useful information about restaurants and what to see and was a mine if information about the surrounding area.
Great continental breakfast and full english was available!
Would recommend Redwoods for a short or longer stay in Rotorua
