Excellent, clean, spacious B&B. Our gracious host always recommended the best ideas! Breakfast was hot or cold, whichever you preferred. Times were flexible. Accomodations were outstanding. The redwoods are only a block away. There is much more to see further down the road (three lakes). The patio and yard were great with magnificent views. The Tui bird songs woke us...

My husband, sister-in-law, and cousin stayed for only two short nights at the Redwoods. We could definitely have stayed there longer as the accommodations and Vivien's hospitality were outstanding. The location was great for getting to Te Puia, the skyrail, walking trails, lakes, and the mud pools. We could also have spent more time at the Redwoods, just hanging out...

My husband and I stayed here last month during our trip and we have nothing but excellent words to say about our stay and of Vivien's hospitality. The whole concept of a bed and breakfast was a bit foreign to us, but this experience really enriched our stay in Rotorua and in New Zealand. For one, the breakfast every morning...

Vivien is a fantastic host, the location of the property, adjacent to an old forest, is ideal and far enough away from the lakes to avoid the smell of sulphur ! Rotorua is an amazing place, allowing the opportunity to sample Maori culture, some amazing geology and thermal spring baths all in one place. Vivien's cooking and welcoming personality make...

We stayed at B&B @ the Redwoods for three nights and it was a wonderful experience. Vivien was so warm and welcoming that we wish we could stay longer.

Vivienne was the perfect host and made us feel very welcome and well-looked after staying at "The Redwoods". Perfect hospitality! We chose to stay here because of its great location in relation to Rotorua and being close to the forest and not far from Lake Tarawera. Rotorua offers heaps of "things to do" for tourists and it's really worth spending...

The Redwoods B&B was definitely a highlight of our stay in New Zealand. Vivian was welcoming and warm towards us from the moment we showed up on her porch to the moment she ran out after us barefoot on a chilly morning to say goodbye. We bonded over a common experience- my SO and I had just completed our degrees...
