B&B @ The Redwoods
Ranked #2 of 53 Rotorua B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 November 2013

We had a great time at Vivien's Redwoods B&B. We were greeted with warm muffins/cake, tea/coffee after a long drive from Auckland. Vivien also had plenty of toys for the kids and they had a ball of a time in the lounge which was big enough for them to run around and have fun. She cooked delicious breakfast in the morning per our and the kids' liking. Very cosy room and extremely clean. Vivien made us feel very warm and welcoming, we would have long conversations yet she would manage to prepare such elaborate breakfast. She's a superlady! She had a wealth of recommendations for things to do in and around Rotorua and she made reservations on our behalf as well. We wished we stayed longer than 1 night at her place.

Room Tip: We lived in the corner suite which was very cosy.

We had fabulous two nights with Vivien and her family and absolutely impressed with their hospitality. The room is in a good size, quite, clean and well decorated. Catering for delicious breakfast depending on personal preferences. Please do notice they can accommodate for three people as well, although it did not say on the website, as I would have booked with them again for next month if I know this. I will strongly recommend to stay with them if you would like to travel to Rotorua.

We spent two nights at The Redwoods and wish it had been longer. The room was extremely well equipped, comfortable, and quiet. No directly adjacent room. Vivien and Peter were very helpful and friendly. The lounge, made available to guests, is also very comfortable. We would recommend it to anyone, and if we're in the area in future we would stay there again. The location is close enough to the city centre to be convenient for restaurants, but far enough out to have little local traffic at night. There are beautiful walks nearby.

Room Tip: It really doesn't matter. Both are very similar and excellent.

This was the first place we stayed on our honeymoon in NZ and wow, what a warm welcome! Vivien and Peter were so helpful in advising what to do in the area which was great since we hasn't planned any activities. And It was nice to come home each night to a clean and cozy room, and then wake up to have a lovely hot breakfast made to fill us up for the day! Best yet, Vivien and Peter were caring for a friends baby lamb while we were visiting and Vivien let me feed him in the morning! Such a fun experience. I would definitely go back here if we ever make it back to NZ! Thanks so much for the hospitality!

We traveled in July as a couple and found this B&B to be a huge highlight of our trip around NZ.

Vivien is an extraordinary host. She provided some lovely hot drinks and cake when we arrived, she got us settled in wonderfully.

She provided a great deal of wonderful recommendations when we didn't know what to do and also got us fantastic discount bookings for the specific activities that we did want to do.

Once, when we didn't know whether or not our White Island trip would be cancelled, Vivien contacted the company early in the morning for us and was ready to cook us breakfast at a moments notice early or allow us to have a sleep in if it was called off. It was unfortunately called off, though we got a great sleep in and a scrumptious breakfast to our liking because of Vivien's amazing skills as a hostess.

The room was impeccably clean, comfortable and well appointed, situated in a wing secluded from the main residence which gave us wonderful privacy to feel at home in.

Bed was very cosy and the room was spacious. Bathroom was great.

The Redwoods nearby are so beautiful and there is absolutely no sulphur smell here. It isn't right in the centre of town, though a lot of activities provide a shuttle and the few times we caught a cab wasn't expensive at all.

We had a wonderful time celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary with Vivien and Peter at this great B &B. The breakfasts got us off to a great start and our hosts were so helpful with getting us to the odd locations that we requested for visits. We hope that we can return again...and make that less than 40 more years!

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms!
