Rotorua,
Its our first stop in New Zealand and Vivien gave us such a warm welcome even though we reached late. She accompanied us to find suitable halal dinner and surprised us with a delicious fruit cake for our supper. We had long good chat with her .
Every morning she not only prepare us breakfast but also sit with us to review the days plan and a warm chit chat session. Her warmness & willingness to do the extra mile for us shows her true passion in entertaining her guest and making them feel welcome. Her house is cozy with a nice garden . She definitely is an exemplary host. We definitely will come again and would recommend our to friends to stay at The Redwoods BnB, when in Rotorua. Million Thanks Vivien
For being our great host for 2nites during our stays in Rotorua.

This is great B&B. Close to town. Room is clean and inviting, hotel room quality. Area is very quiet. It was one of the best nights sleep I had during my trip to New Zealand. Ensuite bathroom clean. Vivian is a wonderful hostess! She is warm and welcoming. Knows the area very well, able to give plenty of suggestions. Definitely recommend and if I am every in Rotorua, will return to The Redwoods B & B.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good!

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. Every morning we were given delicious breakfast before venturing out. She gave great advices and made arrangement for us. And we managed to do more that we planned to. My kids enjoyed their stay here the most and still miss the place. Great location, within walking distance to the Redwoods and 5 minutes walk to eateries. The room was enough for us with two kids of 9 & 6.

Thank you Vivien and Peter!

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 a few days here to make the most of all the special and unique experiences that this city has to offer. Viviene is a great help with places to go, things to see, where to eat. We thoroughly recommend her suggestions.
We enjoyed our stay and were very comfortable - not to mention gaining a kilo or two with the great breakfast feasts that even our mountain biking could not make up for.
Absolutely loved it. Our stay in Rotorua was certainly the highlight of our trip.
Thank you Vivenne,

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 in Waterloo, Ontario and found out she'd done her undergrad there as well, many years ago! Throughout our stay she was absolutely amazing, taking care to make sure we were comfortable, entertained, and well fed! :) We have never stayed at a B&B with a host so spirited, joyful and friendly.

The rooms were very pleasantly decorated, spacious, and clean. Breakfast was a delicious plate of eggs, bacon, toast and a grilled tomato (which I really enjoyed!). The view out on the backyard is super, I definitely regret that the chilly weather didn't permit us to really enjoy the lovely little patio.

Keep up the wonderful work Vivian! We wish you and your family all the best :)

We had stayed in 6 different accommodations during our recent two weeks holiday in North Island, this is by far the most memorable accommodation experience we have had. Vivien is a warm and attentive host. She offers good advice on what to see and do in Rotorua. The discount coupons to various attractions are quite handy too. Her home cooked big breakfast in the mornings and freshly baked lemon muffins are most enjoyable. Fresh fruits are always available. The B&B is located right next to The Redwoods forest, one should check out the various trails exploring the beautiful forest. We enjoyed the living/dining area for use by guests. My 4yo especially enjoyed playing with the playhouse, compliments of Vivien. It's a home away from home experience! Unlimited WIFI is a bonus. We will not hesitate to recommend B&B @ The Redwoods to anyone planning a stopover in Rotorua. You will not regret it!

I have never stayed in a B&B before in my travels. Being Asian living in Borneo Sabah, Malaysia I have seen very poorly maintained B&B accommodation and as such I stayed away from them all the them. But it was a different experience at B&B @The Redwoods. It was a "home" away from home experience that I get. The room was clean and spacious, the bathroom was really clean as well. They even have a electrical blanket to keep you warm since it was winter.My wife, 2 daughters and myself thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Not forgetting the surrounding as well as the clean and well maintained living room for guests.Vivian and Peter are perfect hosts. Vivian is a good cook as well and you will not get hungry with her around. We get the feeling that we are being looked after every minute during our stay there. Moving about to the city was easy as well to the famous Redwoods Park.They are all within walking distance. A good job done Vivien and Peter.
