We stayed only two nights at this B&B and wished it had been more. Our hosts, Vivien and Peter were delightful. They share their home and their time with guests to ensure that everyone the best possible time in the area. Although situated in a suburban family home, the B&B accommodation has been carefully designed to provide spacious accommodation which...

We were a little put off on driving into Rotorua. It is a big, somewhat ugly, commercial city with Las Vegas type signs and parts smell of sulfur. Probably the ugliest town we saw in NZ. We were glad that The Redwoods is a short distance away need the Redwood Forest and is away from the traffic and noise and...

Thank you for your interesting comments about our “Famously Rotorua” city. · Your verdict of it as “probably the ugliest town we saw in NZ” doesn’t seem to be a commonly held view amongst either New Zealanders or foreign guests. Rotorua is currently the holder of the “NZ’s Most Beautiful City Award” an accolade that it has received at the...

Thanks again Vivien for the fantastic time we had with you in Rotorua last month! The only regret : we just stayed for 1 night... Honestly everything was perfect : the location near the beautiful Redwoods forest is just great, in a quiet street, the room was extremely clean and comfortable, the breakfast very tasty... And last but not least...

Vivian and her family will welcome you with open arms. We were greeted with homemade cake and the rooms had all of the common amenities. There is so much to do in Rotorua so you'll want at least two nights there. The facilities that Vivian and her family created match any upscale hotel. We didn't have any prior bookings at...

We spent 2 nights with Vivian at the B&B at the Redwoods. It was a last minute detour so we never got around to researching what there was to do but that didn't matter because Vivian was so amazing. She gave us the perfect 2 day itinerary when we arrived and even researched everything that was open on Christmas day...

B & B @ The Redwoods has the best location in Rotorua, within easy walking distance of the beautiful Redwood Forest. Vivien and Peter are excellent hosts, we felt completely at home from the minute we arrived. Our room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean, guests also have use of a lovely lounge area with facilities to make hot drinks...

What a great place to kick off our stay in New Zealand. Vivien and Peter are the perfect hosts, making you feel like visiting family instead of intrepid tourists! They are extremely knowledgable on the area and we really enjoyed our social chats ..not to mention the glass of wine. The location is wonderful being on the edge of the...
