We had a great time at Vivien's Redwoods B&B. We were greeted with warm muffins/cake, tea/coffee after a long drive from Auckland. Vivien also had plenty of toys for the kids and they had a ball of a time in the lounge which was big enough for them to run around and have fun. She cooked delicious breakfast in the...

We had fabulous two nights with Vivien and her family and absolutely impressed with their hospitality. The room is in a good size, quite, clean and well decorated. Catering for delicious breakfast depending on personal preferences. Please do notice they can accommodate for three people as well, although it did not say on the website, as I would have booked...

We spent two nights at The Redwoods and wish it had been longer. The room was extremely well equipped, comfortable, and quiet. No directly adjacent room. Vivien and Peter were very helpful and friendly. The lounge, made available to guests, is also very comfortable. We would recommend it to anyone, and if we're in the area in future we would...

This was the first place we stayed on our honeymoon in NZ and wow, what a warm welcome! Vivien and Peter were so helpful in advising what to do in the area which was great since we hasn't planned any activities. And It was nice to come home each night to a clean and cozy room, and then wake up...

We traveled in July as a couple and found this B&B to be a huge highlight of our trip around NZ. Vivien is an extraordinary host. She provided some lovely hot drinks and cake when we arrived, she got us settled in wonderfully. She provided a great deal of wonderful recommendations when we didn't know what to do and also...

We had a wonderful time celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary with Vivien and Peter at this great B &B. The breakfasts got us off to a great start and our hosts were so helpful with getting us to the odd locations that we requested for visits. We hope that we can return again...and make that less than 40 more years!

We were only able to stay here for one night, but I'm so glad we did. When we booked the room a few months ahead of our trip, we asked for a recommendation about a Maori cultural dinner, and Vivien said she'd be happy to work that out for us when we arrived. We ended up having some weather issues...

Our stay at B&B@Redwoods at Rotorua was one of our more memorable stays during our trip to New Zealand. The rooms were tastefully furnished and the bed was extremely comfortable. Vivien is an excellent host and always had good advice on places to visit in Rotorua. Her breakfast of eggs, toast and bacon always hit the spot before a day...

My friends and I lodged at Vivien's B&B just last month in winter and I must say that despite the wet weather, Vivien made our trip an unforgettable one! Coming from the Gold Coast, we were impressed by Viv's spacious rooms, heated beds, thick blankets and most importantly her cordial hospitality. It was really chilly as it rained cats and...
