The lodge is set in the countryside about 10 mins drive from Waitomo. The rooms are clean and large and the bed comfortable. Our host was friendly and made us feel at home. The choice for breakfast was wide and varied and the food was delicious. We enjoyed staying there and would happily do so again.

Unfortunately we arrived quite late in the evening and had to leave for our scheduled tour of the nearby caves in the morning, so we did not spend much time in this nice B&B. We were greeted warmly by the owner, which made us feel welcome and at home. The room is spacious and comfortable and can be accessed both...

The Redwood Lodge is a bit out of town so don't give up trying to find it. This was once a gentleman's lodge and now has four rooms for guest. Everything was clean and the owner was wonderful - we really enjoyed hearing her stories of being part of the community. The bathrooms are updated and the sheets are welcoming....

Redwood Lodge was the final stop on our 3 1/2 week driving tour of the North Island and it was a wonderfully high note on which to end. We had stayed in many different b&bs (some pretty expensive!) but this modest establishment more than held its own. Upon our arrival, Julie (the delightful owner) was out the front door before...

So relaxed that the owner left a note on a chalk board saying she had an appointment and the keys were in the door and to make ourselves at home. Only four or five rooms ,more like staying in a family home and made to feel like one of the family. All you need for a one night stay and...

Making a decision early in the morning difficult. Too many choices of great food. Wonderful rural surrounds, I did a 30km loop bike ride with minimal traffic. Room and bath spotlessly clean Excellent value Great effort Julie! Wishing you all the best going forward.

After a series of hotels and motels, it was great to be in a house and feel like I was in a guest room. Julie is a gracious host and awesome cook. I took a walk along the country road and enjoyed the sights and sounds of nature. A great memory!

We stayed two nights and loved it. The hosts are amazing. Even gave us their dining room so that we could have take out delivered. The rooms were large and very clean. Great for exploring the area.
