In New Zealand for the Rugby World Cup, two friends and I decided to spend a night at the Redwood Lodge, before making our way up to Auckland. Coming off to a rough stay the night before, Julie immediately set us at ease about our stay at the lodge - one of the best places we stayed on our trip.
After getting to know Julie a little bit, she's an excellent conversationalist, she showed us to where we'd be staying and we were pleasantly impressed. Julie had even made us some cookies in anticipation of our arrival. Upon tasting the cookies, we knew the next morning's breakfast would be good. We had a great night's sleep and breakfast the next morning was absolutely delicious! It was no shock to learn that Julie is trained as a chef.
This is a great B&B with stellar accommodations, a fantastic hostess/cook, a hot tub, a pool, and a lounge room complete with a pool table.
If you're in Otorohanga for a night or few, you have to stay here!
