“A gem of a place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 December 2008

Only spent one night at this delightful b and b. Accommodation consists of two en-suite bedrooms and a large guest lounge/dining room with outside space, which is built onto the rear of the hosts' home. The Redwoods is a short drive from the centre of Rotorua. Photographs shown on the web-site are accurate, the bedroom was clean and comfortable.

Vivienne is a wonderful hostess, nothing was too much trouble to her; she suggested a local brasserie as a suitable dinner option and made the reservation for us. We were invited to enjoy a glass of wine which was accompanied by apple, cashew nuts, crackers and a whole camembert cheese.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2008

We stayed at the Redwoodwoods for our first two nights in New Zealand and very much enjoyed our stay. Vivian and Peter are wonderful hosts who answered all our questions cheerfully (we had a lot as we had just arrived in the country), helped us to book activities, and provided advice on the best things to do and great places to eat in our limited time in Rotorua.

The B&B is a few minutes drive from the center of town and only a couple minutes walk from the Redwoods Forest park which is a great place to take a walk. The rooms are very comfortable and tastefully decorated, off-street parking is provided and breakfast was delicious!

If you're looking for a quiet, comfortable, hospitable place to stay we highly reccommend the Redwoods!
