we came to Rotorua the night of the rugby finals. At about the time everyone had already gathered for the party. The "who are you" we were greeted with when ringing the bell not only got us an absolutely incredible room but also an invitation to the finals night including friends, neighbours, food and an explanation to the rugby rules.
Vivian and Peter were the most awesome hosts ever!
The room and bathroom were very spacious, in front is a very beautiful little back yard, free wifi, an incredible breakfast and Vivians helpful tips for sightseeing and where to find some hidden attractions such as a hot spring for the locals, were rounding the experience up perfectly.
For the town of Rotorua, where the hot springs are everywhere, this location is perfect since you do not have the sulfur smell like downtown and the redwoods, lakes and outdoors are right outside the door. We only got to spent one night and one day, but managed to see so many things so easily from this convenient location.
Highly recommended!!
Thanks again for everything Vivian and Peter!

My fiancé and I stayed for three nights and had a fantastic time at Vivien and Pete's BnB. Vivien was an invaluable source of information for everything. She basically became our "tour operator" and helped us with everything - restaurants, tours, excursions, etc. If we ever come back to Rotorua we will 100 percent stay at their place again.

Great location for exploring the area.
Vivien is a great hostess, really acomodating and a great source of insideinformation to the area.

The rooms are great and the breakfast sets you up for the day especially the pancakes. And she knows how to fills up a teenage boy (and girls).

You are right next to the redwood forest which is a must do - spectacular

Vivien was a great host and we couldn't have asked for more comfortable rooms. This was our first BandB experience in NZ and it really set high standards for the remaining part of our stay. The rooms were modern with heaters and an attached bath, and very very clean. Our host was super helpful, kind and welcoming. She was very accommodating regarding our children and our requests and gave us very useful and relevant advice regarding eating out, and things to do around rotorua, even helping with the bookings. The tea and breakfast she served us was better than anything we would have had in a big hotel. We only wish we had more time in rotorua and at viviens!

Room Tip: If you are more than 4 people please use hot water sparingly as the tank runs out of hot water.

Traveling from San Diego in early December, I met my daughter in Queenstown, New Zealand upon the completion of her semester of study in Sydney, Australia. During our sixth day in New Zealand, we arrived at the downtown Rotorua info center to get directions to B&B @ The Redwoods and were initially surprised in this city with so many lodging options that the woman we spoke to immediately knew the location and assured us that we would truly enjoy our "wonderful hosts." Vivien Cooper had been very helpful in responding to my email inquiries prior to our trip. Then immediately upon our arrival for our two night stay, Vivien and Peter Cooper made us feel welcome like "family" resulting in our visit to Rotorua becoming one of the highlights of our trip to New Zealand. As soon as we got settled in our well-appointed, attractive room, Vivien invited us to the dining room for tea and then spent about an hour providing us with restaurant and activity options including some (e.g. the location of a thermal creek with water about 100 Fahrenheit/38 Celsius) that were not to be found in any brochures. Then she made reservations for those dining and activity options we selected. Other much-appreciated, special pluses were Peter's assistance with providing us with an electrical outlet converter and the two hot breakfasts (blueberry pancakes and bacon and eggs) not to mention the warm, just-out-of-the-oven cake that Vivien baked for us. If your New Zealand travel plans include Rotorua with its thermal parks and hot pools, Maori cultural experiences, redwood forest, walks along the lake which is home to black swans, and easy access to the Hobbiton movie set; your entire experience will be greatly enriched by staying at B&B @ The Redwoods. Thank you Cooper family!
