Andy was a great host at Lupton Lodge. Very welcoming, very hospitable. Charming historic building and warm, clean, well presented modernised rooms with every amenity you would need. Lovely breakfast and beautiful surroundings.

Located just outside town with a narrow, almost missed driveway! Beautiful property with well appointed rooms and great wifi. We had dinner and breakfast in the B&B and both were delicious. Room was a spacious with a desk area and lots of seating, very comfortable. A lovely quiet, peaceful spot with a great host. Would definitely recommend this B&B.

Lovely, quiet, clean place. Run by a nice guy who was the best cook, the food was all really good and reasonably priced. Not a cheap weekend but could not complain about anything and will recommend for a couples get away anytime.

At home reflecting on our Whangarei week-end experience. Lupton House was built in 1896, this stunning luxury boutique B n B is only a 10 minute drive from Whangarei and the spectacular Tutukaka coast and beaches to die for. Set in 9 acres of farmland surrounded by dry-stone walls. We chose the “Blue Room” for our stay and in no... More
