Vivien was a wonderful host during our 2 night stay. She greeted us upon arrival with homemade cake that was great! She is a wealth of information regarding all to do in the area. Breakfast was fantastic and her homemade bread is very tasty! The room was clean, quiet and had everything we needed for our stay. Would definitely stay...

This B&B was in a great location, withing walking distance to the redwood forest and short driving distance to the downtown area and other attractions. While the room was small, it was very clean, with a well-appointed bathroom. Vivien was a terrific host, full of information and recommendations about the area. Breakfasts were substantial and delicious, with lots of fresh...

Vivian greeted us upon our arrival and made us feel at home in an instant with her warm smile, friendly conversation, and homemade cake! I was particularly impressed with her e-mail communications soon after our booking months in advance. She gave us so much useful information and booked our Maori cultural experience at Te Puia. Vivian's expertise at giving precise...

If we could have driven back to Redwoods B&B each night on our road trip around the North Island we would have done! We were visiting New Zealand from our home in Kenya and we'd planned on staying in Rotorua for on one night, but ended up spending two. Vivien was extremely welcoming and went that extra mile by sitting...

We stayed here for two nights - my husband and I, a 3 year old and a 9 month old. Vivien was so friendly from the start and made our children feel right at home. The tree house, swing, and outside yard was a highlight of my daughter's stay. Vivien even brought out her children's old toys. She went out...

Vivian offers a good B&B and was very helpful. Our only concern was the room had no space in the wardrobe so we had to live out of our suitcases, a pet hate of my wife. If Vivian could fix this issue we would definitely return.

Thank you for your comments. We do have a wardrobe in the Koru and Redwood Suites however the room you occupied was our spare room which you were made aware of and which is not advertised on our website. Due to your last minute request for an extra night we did not have either of the suites available and you...
