Reviewed 11 September 2011

We stayed at Redwoods while touring the North Island. It was a comfortable, quiet and peaceful place to stay. A friendly host with plenty of advice on what to see nearby!

What a lovely stay we had in Rotorua ! Vivien made us feel at home and welcomed us with very tasty cakes... She recommended us a lot of places to visit, off the beaten tracks. Her b&b is very comfortable, lovely... and what a nice breakfast we had ! We will be back !

B&B @ The Redwoods is a must stay when going to Rotorua. Vivien is the perfect hostess, so charming and helpful. She helped us to plan our trip around Rotorua, and also to find a good restaurant for dinner in downtown. The room and bathroom are perfect for a couple. Besides, we had a gorgeous breakfast in the morning. We rate it 5 out of 5 with no doubt.

Lovely B&B which provides a great base for visiting Rotorua. Owners very friendly and provided lots of good advice about attractions, restaurants, etc. Also made bookings for us. Located a bit out of main town, but no problem if you have a car. Close to The Redwoods, which is a nice area.

This was truly a perfect place to stay. It's the perfect combination of a very helpful host with privacy when you want it. From the moment we arrived, Vivien was great and making recommendations and even making reservations for us. Her breakfast was the best we had in our 3 weeks in New Zealand. The room was impeccable with a great outdoor area right outside of the room. Very modern and very quiet - we had a couple with a small child staying in the room next to us and if we hadn't seen the child the next morning, we wouldn't have believed it. However, with such good "noise proofing" comes that the free Wifi is only accessible in the common area and doesn't reach the rooms. Great place - highly recommended!

The Redwoods is just what a B&B should be. We were lucky to stay in some excellent places in New Zealand, but this certainly ranks amongst the best.

Needless to say the room was great and the breakfast superb (definitely go for the pancakes), but more than that Vivien & Peter are keen to provide that all important personal touch that separates B&B's from more formal hotels or motels.

Nothing was too much trouble. Even when I developed a toothache that needed urgent dental treatment, Vivien found me an emergency dentist and booked an appointment for me. Sadly the tooth had to come out, but it would have been so much worse without Vivien's help.

If ever I find myself back in Rotorua I will make this my place to stay.

We stayed at the Redwoods for 2 nights and spent ages deciding on where to stay, we were not disappointed.

As soon as we arrived we were greeted by our host Vivien who couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful.

We were taken straight to our room which was lovely and felt very homely. The room was a good size and did not feel cramped with our 2 large suitcases. The terrace was beautiful and although it was winter it was still lovely to sit outside as it is out of the smell zone. The bed was very comfortable and the decor was very nice.

Vivien was so helpful with recommending where to go and giving very clear directions. We had homemade cake offered to us on arrival and the breakfast had a great selection of continental and cooked options.

We would definately recommend this place and also stay gere next time.
