“Vivien set very high standards !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2010

We arrived at B& B Redwoods on the 2nd day of our stay in New Zea land. All the other accommodations we stayed at after that were compared to the excellent stay we had here! Vivien was the perfect hostess; we were welcomed with a yummy cake, a very thoughtful gesture! Vivien was very helpful with advise and bookings on things to do at Rotorua. She has done up the house beautifully which reflect her personal touch. The rooms were lovely, clean with comfortable beds ; bathrooms modern and squeaky clean and a garden with a tree-house that the kids loved! But it was the breakfast that completely wowed us over..freshly baked bread, personalised egg preferences and a full table of assorted goodies; very generous and very satisfying. We went for a morning walk to the Redwood forests which were right next door. All in all, we started our stay at a place with such high standards that were difficult to match elsewhere!

We recently stayed at the B&B at the Redwoods & were very impressed by both the room & our host! As soon as we arrived, Vivienne showed us the room & then made us coffee & sat down with us to talk about Rotorua & all the sites/activities she thought we'd be interested in. She suggested horseback riding which was only a 10min. drive away & ended up being one of the highlights of our trip!! She had many other useful suggestions & really took the time to answer our questions. When it came to dinner options - she even had some sample menus for us to look at & we were very impressed by the food at the restaurant she recommended. The room was very spacious - which was appreciated - and very clean and quiet. There is also a common living area where we could sit & relax while checking our email on the free wi-fi., We also liked that it had a separate entrance for guests & we didn't have to walk through someone's home. Vivienne gave us options for breakfast - we had a cooked breakfast 1 morning & continental the next - both were very good. This B&B is a hidden gem & good value for your money!!

Stayed for two nights. Vivian was a delight. She gave us an itinerary for day’s touring that was perfect for us, totally within our time frame. Whatever you do, wait till you are there and ask Vivian what you should do or see.
Terrific breakfast, plus Vivian would sit with us and talk about the days events. Room was good size and the bathroom ample. Quiet backyard area.
Because of Vivian, went to a Maori meeting place near the B&B, felt energy while in it alone, a special moment.

This B&B was modern, spacious, immaculate yet so homely that you felt like part of the family. We instantly liked Vivien's bubbly personality which shone through her professional approach. Great location near to the Redwood trails and the town centre. Vivien gave us detailed advice on our visits to Wai-o-Tapu Thermal Wonderland, Waimangu Volcanic Valley, Mitai Maori village and the Polynesian spa which proved to be invaluable. This helped us get the most from our two night stay in Rotorua. An excellent place to explore the Rotorua area. We loved it and will definitely stay there again next time we're in that area.

Vivien & Peter were excellent hosts during our stay in Rotorua. Our room was very comfortable with direct access to the garden. Vivien in particular had lots of advice on activities and arranged our evening at Te Puia. Breakfasts were very generous and one evening Vivien cooked us a lovely 3 course meal with the best pavlova I have ever tasted. The guest lounge had tea & coffee making facilities available and comfortable seating and a glass of wine could be shared in the evening.

We stayed only one night at the Redwoods, but Vivien Cooper made us feel at home and our accomodations were outstanding in every way. It is sited a few blocks from the town center and right next to a beautiful stand of redwoods where you can take a relaxing stroll.

Staying with Peter & Vivien was a real treat. They are wonderful hosts, truly interested in making your stay comfortable and enjoyable. Our interaction with them and other guests was one of the highlights of our NZ vacation. Vivien's breakfast are superb. Thank you, Vivien, for making us those Canadian-style blueberry pancakes - absolutely delicious! Free wireless internet is rare and much appreciated, as is the laundry service. The guest rooms and lounge area are separate from the family living area, with its own entrance, which is nice as it gives both the guests and hosts privacy.
