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.

Anne and John have created the best B & B we have encountered on our month tour of NZ. From the classic contemporary furnishings to the marvellous breakfasts, the comfortable beds and gorgeous new bathrooms, all make for the most enjoyable stay. They are exemplary hosts, they are so warm and welcoming to their home, offering advice over a glass of wine on the terrace overlooking the lake - what could be better ! You must stay here, even if you have to make a detour to get here. Macleod World Tour

Our next stop is B&B Number Ten in Taupo. It’s modern and clean. Ann, the type of granny you’d adopt right away, is very sweet, warm, familial, and relaxed. She even let our baby empty out all the kitchen drawers. She cooks us lamb ribs for breakfast, so we feel like real Kiwis. But we have trouble getting friendly with »Marmite«, a food spread made from yeast extract. John, her husband, helps us to optimise our itinerary for the South Island. Fantastic hosts, no question ... more infos on our trip through New Zealand? — get our AORTICA Magazine, N°02.

We have such fond memories of you all. The lively conversations at the end of each day were stimulating and fun and we are so pleased you enjoyed your time in the beautiful South Island. How privileged we were to have lunch with you at your home late last year and the unforgettable afternoon exploring your magnificent region of Germany. Thank you!!

I stayed here with my partner for two nights on a short (5day) north island trip. John and Ann were wonderful hosts, inviting us for drinks, arranging a tour and made us feel very welcome. The rooms were immaculate - clean, modern, comfy bed, private ensuite and fast wifi internet available. 5 mins drive from Taupo CBD. Home cooked brakfasts were excellent.
Would highly recommend to others.
