5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013 via mobile

Our stay with Ann and John was just wonderful!! The rooms were lovely and the house has beautiful views over lake Taupo!! We arrived on the birthday of Ann and that never stopped her from doing everything she could to make our stay perfect! We were invited to have some wine and nibbles with Ann and John and this turned out in a lovely last minute dinner made by Ann! If we will visit Taupo again we will stay at B&B nr Ten for sure!! All the best!! Regards,
Philip and Flora

My 5?th birthday was made all the more memorable by your stay with John and I. The lively and entertaining conversation was most enjoyable, you were such a delightful young couple to spend an evening with. We hope you experienced many more such evenings with your hosts as you continued your holiday in New Zealand.

I must say a big thank you to Ann and John for making my stay felt so welcomed and comfortable. I loved my room. This was my first time staying at a B&B and it was a great experience. I was glad to choose to stay with you rather than staying at the Hilton.

To all the people considering to stay at B&B Number 10, do it. The house is lovely and the rooms are well designed. Plus the owners are such lovely people and I hope to to stay with them again when I go back to Taupo!

A warm welcome from the hosts which included a very nice chat, coffee and a piece of chocolate cake! The room was spotlessly clean, well appointed with a great bathroom and luxury toiletries, nice modern decor. Breakfast was a leisurely affair and another interesting chat. Good views from the breakfast room. This was host hospitality at its best with NZ showing off its finest, but unobtrusive hosting. All in all my kinda place. Do stay here, I'm sure you'll like it as much as I did.

Awesome hospitality, Ann and John were friendly and always happy to help. They have lived in taupo for years and were able to give great advice and tips on what to do while in taupo for the weekend. The home and room are beautiful and the breakfast was delicious. Would definitely recommend to others looking for a place to stay in taupo!

We arrived feeling a litte jaded, after too many hours in the car, to a wonderful warm welcome from Ann to their spotlessly clean and modern home. Our room was spacious, with delightful furnishings, and high spec ensuite. Ann's afternoon-tea hit the spot before we headed out to see the local sites. We really appreciated the wine and pre-dinner nibbles and the opportunity to chat with Ann & John who were so friendly to spend time with. Breakfast was a treat (huge)and served at a time to suit us, which gave us the opportunity for a little sleep in!

Ann and John were marvellous hosts. Their hospitality was second to none and the accommodation excellent. We really appreciated and enjoyed the welcoming glass of wine on the terrace and the recommendation of a good restaurant was spot on. The lovely breakfast cooked by Ann, including the NZ lamb chops really set us up for the day.
Have recomended number 10 to friends and family.

Thank you for such a wonderful review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay in our home. Your time with us was all too brief. We enjoyed meeting you both and have happy memories of our time shared on the balcony on what was a beautiful Taupo evening and the lively conversation the following morning at breakfast!

Ann and John Page's modern home (built in 2008), in the upscale Botanical Heights subdivision near De Brett's and a short distance from the town centre, is an exceptional place to stay in Taupo. The room and en-suite bath were spotlessly clean, spacious, attractively furnished, and came with plush towels, all reflecting Ann's strong sense of good design. Each room has a view of the lake, as well as an adjoining patio to enjoy the afternoon and evening sun. Although there are no screens on the windows (which seems to be typical throughout New Zealand, notwithstanding the mosquitos in Auckland this summer), the windows can be dogged open securely for some fresh air, plus, our guest room was air-conditioned.

Ann is a welcoming and friendly host; her breakfasts are delicious. Located in a quiet neighbourhood away from any road noise, we slept very soundly. I highly recommend booking the Page's B&B @ Number Ten for accommodations in the Taupo area of the North Island; it was the most comfortable and most enjoyable place we stayed at during our three weeks in NZ.

We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and found your room (The Magnolia Guestroom) spacious and comfortable. It was great to see you both relaxing and making the most of the warm sunny evenings on your courtyard.
We thoroughly enjoyed our conversations – breakfast was certainly lively and fun!! Thank you for your generous review. We hope you will return, one day.
