“Lovely stay at The Redwoods”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2011

We had a lovely stay at The Redwoods. Vivien & Peter were extremely welcoming and did everything to make our holiday easier in the three days we were with them. The room was clean, well appointed and very comfortable and the breakfasts were delicious (and accompanied by some lovely chats!). The B&B is just outside central Rotorua, but this was never a problem and it was only a couple of minutes drive into town - in fact, we were almost certainly better off for being just outside!

The only single down note is that the television in the bedroom has extremely poor reception (as to be unwatchable on all but one channel) - Vivien explained that this was generally an issue in the area and, to be honest, we had far more exciting things to be doing that sitting in our room, watching tv!

All in all, a lovely stay!

Vivien is indeed the most warming and hospitable host whom I have met so far. She gave very good recommendation on activities and places to eat based on your interests. The room and lounge area are very clean and cozy. Although wireless connection only works effectively in the lounge, we were fine with that as we still had our own privacy. Kudos to Vivien for making the effort to compensate this little flaw by having an ipad in the lounge for guests to use.

Breakfast is delicious and thanks for the effort to make the chinese-style half-boiled eggs for us.

Location is good as it is a mere 5-15 minute drive from all good spots in Rotorua.

The situation just outside Rotorua is fine. You will need the car to drive into the town, but let’s face it, you have the car anyway if you are staying here. Vivienne was very welcoming as soon as we arrived giving us lots of advice as to where to visit. Admittedly my husband had stayed in Rotorua several times and knew most of the places but it was good to get tips anyway. The room was lovely – large, well equipped and clean. It also led onto the back garden via some wooden steps which was really nice. It was good to have a small table and chairs there as well to sip wine at in the evening sun. The breakfast was lovely – you can choose exactly what you want rather than just a standard menu. We were also treated to some homemade cake and cream when we came home early one afternoon. All in all a very welcoming and pleasant place to stay.

We stayed here 3 nights and enjoyed every part of it. Vivian is a wonderful host whith a world of knowledge for the entire area. She gave us many recommendations and even a few discount coupons for th e activities we chose. Take the 1 hour drive to see Hobbiton film site. It's absolutely beautiful even if you're not a lotr fan. Great breakfasts and a lot of person attention make this a unique place to stay.

We originally had booked for 1 night, but Vivien gave us such great advice about where to go, what to do (and more importantly what not to do) and where to eat that we stayed for an extra night. It was great to be on the outskirts of Rotorua but with easy reach of attractions and restaurants. We especially enjoyed going to The Landing at Lake Tarawera. Great atmosphere, great room and breakfast was a super start to the days. It was our last 2 nights in New Zealand and they were very special. Thank you. Denzil & Lottie from the UK
