Amazing place to stay... 10/10. Julie was so nice and made us feel very welcomed. Great breakfast, we will be back. We enjoyed the spa pool and a great effort was made to have it nice and warm for us. Once again thank you

Redwood Lodge is beatifully situated in the countryside not far from Waitomo. A wonderful place to stay when visiting the Waitomo Caves. The rooms are nice and clean. Our host did our laundry for just $5, wonderful service! The cooked breakfast is fantastic, there are an abundance of choices.

We have stayed in very many B&B's in very many countries and I can safely say this is one of the best. Julie really had got it right - friendly, efficient, and a great cook. we loved the room, the amenities and the fantastic breakfast. One of the best things about B&B's is that you often get to have breakfast...

We booked this place as it was close to the Waitomo Caves but didn't consider how far it would be to restaurants for food. It is a clean place and the rooms are spacious and the breakfast was good. The owner is friendly.

If you're the type of traveller who appreciates peace and quiet then this is the accommodation for you. Small property with only 4 rooms. Very nice surroundings, flowering plants, birds singing and a very friendly cat who likes to come to visit. Our room was nice, large and full of light.
