This B and B was chosen as it was slightly outside the "city" and associated sulphurous smells - the quiet location, private outside space were appreciated and it was a good place to start for getting into town, visiting the forest or the other lakes in the greater Rotorua area. I can only reiterate the previous comments - Vivien certainly...

We sadly had only one night at this peaceful B&B, but we will return. The accommodations were lovely, contemporary and immaculate. The location very convenient to sights and town center. Vivienne, our hostess, is very knowledgable and guided us to everything we wanted to see and do. She did not disappoint!!! A must stay for anyone visiting Rotorua.

There a lot of superlatives that could be used to describe the B&B @ The Redwoods but most have been mentioned in previous reviews. The most notable for us was the host Vivian. She is very personable and makes sure every guests needs are met. She is the most cordial and accommodating host we have encountered in all our travels....

We stayed at the B&B @ the Redwoods in early February and loved the location, quality of the room, and Vivian's hospitality. It is very close to town and a short walk to redwood forest trails. We would highly recommend it. Bill & Marianne Maryland, USA

We chose this B & B based on Tripadvisor comments, and it could not have been better. Clean and confortable room, well located near the awesome Redwood forest, but above all this B & B gave us the opportunity of knowing our host, Vivien. We were truly treated like friends...make that like family...and our too brief stay was most enjoyable....

We decided to stay in Rotorua a few extra days and were lucky that Vivien had a room available. The room was clean, quiet and private, and the breakfasts were fresh and delicious. We enjoyed talking with Vivien in the morning and she gave us great recommendations on places to visit while in town. We're glad we found the B&B,...

We were lucky enough to be recommended the B&B @ The Redwoods by our neighbours. What a gem! We stayed with Vivien four nights and had four wonderful cooked breakfasts. Vivien must have the Maori outlook as her guests become part of the family. So we had the pleasure of sharing breakfast with a lovely couple from Portland, Oregon, and...

We had only two nights to spend in Rotorua last October, so we knew we would need to plan our time carefully to get the most out of our stay. Noting that the hostess, Vivien, was praised on TripAdvisor for being helpful in this regard, we decided to book the B&B@The Redwoods. Excellent decision!! Of course, we did not know...

"We had the most wonderful time at the Redwoods B&B. Vivien went over and above to ensure we were comfortable and made the most of our time in Rotorua, she even went as far as showing us a few of the city attractions herself!

Great location right by the redwoods park and on the road to the small lakes, yet not far from downtown. Vivian was friendly, full of information, and helpful with suggestions and bookings. Comfortable room with a private terrace. A great value.
