Convenient location, both from town centre and blue/green lakes...Spacious, quiet accomodation...no smell of sulphur...Vivien welcomed us with a delicious lemon cake and a cuppa warm French press..she also quickly made up a comprehensive itinery for our short stay of 2 days..it helped us to cover the major attractions of Rotorua and more..Vivien's warmth and homeliness was the icing on the cake that is Redwood B&B..

Comfortable, spacious accommodation. Own veranda, which was a lovely sun trap. Good breakfast. No 'sulphur' smell. Vivienne very helpful with directions and information on the sights to see. Close to the Redwoods and the 'blue' & 'green' lakes. 10 minute drive to the town centre and restaurants.

In our visit to Rotorua, we (my husband and I) had the pleasure of staying at The Redwoods, B & B located in a nice neighborhood, near the Redwoods forest. All requirements that travelers look for can be found there: clean and comfortable room with a balcony to the garden (a luxury!); delicious breakfast; attentive hostess. As in Rotorua there are plenty of things to do, including sports activities, geothermal parks, and the best of Maori culture, Vivian was perfect in helping in what to do. She gave the best tips (even the free outdoor spa). She should certainly have the reputation of "the coolest in Rotorua".

Disregard the nonsense that some previous guests have said about Rotorua.The place is beautiful and offers many great activities for those who enjoy outdoor sports and want to know a bit about Maori culture. Enjoy the comfort and warmth of this perfect B & B. Vivien is a fantastic hostess and knows how to give the best tips according to the profile of each guest. Thank you, Vivien!

We stayed two nights at this B&B when in Rotorua for a social event and found Vivienne very helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Very comfortable B&B and we would stay there again. A home away from home, and we enjoyed chatting with other guests over breakfast.

We arrived very early on the off chance, and happily,our room was ready.Vivien sat us down with a cup of tea and a large slice of home made cake to tell us all the things we could do in Rotorua.
Her suggestions proved incredibly helpful. Our room was delightful with a balcony down to the garden. This was certainly one of the best accommodations we had anywhere in New Zealand.
