Vivien and her B&B exceeded our expectations! She was speedy to return my excessive amount of email inquiries, and had so much patience as we debated on how to get from Auckland to Rotorua and back. It was wonderful to have a locals perspective as this was our first time to New Zealand. After much consideration, we decided on transportation...

Our host Vivien was very welcoming & an absolute mine of information on things to do and see in Rotorua, providing maps & info. Lovely room with...

This B@B is outside the center of town. So you need a car to go to restaurants and shops. It is quite clearn with nice bed clothes. Unfortunately a bed was uncomfortable for me with too soft matraces and hard pillows. Wifi does not work in rooms just in a breakfast area. This area is a little bit cold. Breakfast...

Hi Thank you for taking the time to write me your feedback. I am disappointed that you did not mention your discomfort during your 2 days stay with me. I had asked each morning how you all were and you assured me that you were well looked after and had good night sleep. There was no mention of the pillows,...

Good ensuite room with off road parking, guest lounge and high quality breakfast. Very good personal support. From the booking stage, Vivien communicated personally and attentively. When we arrived she offered excellent tailored advice on where to eat and what attractions to visit. She bases this on the time available and profile of the guests. She also seems interested in...

Vivien was a most gracious hostess!! She communicated with us before, during and after our visit. She greeted us upon arrival with a delicious homemade cake and tea. She made reservations for us at the Mitai Maori Village for a cultural dinner and night walk. She gave us recommendations of things to see and do in the local area. Our...

Vivian is a fabulous hostess and really does make you feel at home. We especially appreciated her tips about where to eat and what to do. The location is very quiet because it's close to the Redwoods, rather than in town - this worked well for us as we had a car (or you can rent bikes nearby). We also...

We enjoyed our stay here. We arrived very early and it was no problem for us to leave our bags and get changed into our biking gear. We walked a few minutes down the road to Outdoorsman to hire bikes, it was just a short ride to The Redwoods, and it was easy to store them at the B&B after....

We stayed at the BnB The Redwoods over a weekend. A great host who collected us from the airport later in the evening and provided us an enjoyable supper. Our room was nicely prepared and comfortable. Breakfast was provided with nice options available. We stayed at this property as it was nice and close to the start / finish line...
