Vivian is a very friendly and helpful host, with many reliable suggestions and advice about what to do and where to go. Our bedroom was small, very clean and comfortable, with our own private deck. The shared living/dining area was very comfortable, and Vivian facilitated our getting very good take-out food, and provided dishes etc. so we could eat on the patio on her lovely garden. The B&B is in a very good location, away from the sulfur smell of Rotorua. We would heartily recommend it.

Really me
Njoyed our stay at this location. Vivien was great and learned what guest probably wanted to do without asking. Only minor thing was that we wished there was more tv channels to watch but since we are just getting here this might be the norm. Defiantly recommend!

Thanks for your recent review. We've actually recently purchased 2 new TVs and are awaiting delivery. They have digital receivers and will be able to receive more channels. However, most of our B&B guests rarely seem to watch TV and prefer to make full use of our complimentary wireless Internet, as you did too using our laptop.
We were happy to be able to provide these services for sorting out your misplaced luggage and bank cards and helping you to change your itinerary. Likewise we were happy to accommodate, at no extra charge, your request for an early-morning check-in so you and your wife could catch up on your sleep. You seemed very appreciative of both the sleep, and, after waking up refreshed in the late afternoon, being served freshly baked blueberry coconut slice for afternoon tea. We were also glad that you thoroughly enjoyed the sites and activities that we had recommended in and around Rotorua.
Our only regret is that these additional services that made your stay here enjoyable and something you'd “definitely recommend", don't seem to have made up for not having more TV channels. However you may have since found that in New Zealand, having more TV channels doesn't mean the quality of the programmes shown are better.

We chose the B&B at the Redwoods from reading the Trip Advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. The room was spacious and very clean, in a separate wing of the house. Guests also have a lounge area, with tea/coffee, TV and books, and is also where breakfast is served. The house is set back from the road so there was no traffic noise and the off-street car parking was a bonus. Vivien is friendly and welcoming host, passionate about Rotorua and full of ideas about things to do and see. Good hearty breakfast. Recommend it.

If we make it to NZ again, we will gladly stay there again! We could have easily spent a day just retreating at our B&B (maybe sit out some rain) but there is so much to see and do in and around Roturua. Our room easily matched and in many aspects exceeded hotel standards.
Our host, Vivian, was very helpful and knowledgable. You can see she takes pride in her business and makes it her personal ambition to satisfy her guests.
