We were in the area to scuba dive at Poor Knights in late March. Lupton Lodge was about a 15 minute drive from the dive center which turned out to be perfect. Andy was a fabulous host with great recommendations for us as soon as we arrived. The room was gorgeous and made us feel right at home. We enjoyed... More

Large, pleasant room with access to nice deck; helpful innkeeper, refreshing pool and pretty grounds. The breakfast was tasty and made-to-order. We enjoyed hiking around the waterfalls nearby. All in all an excellent stay.

This place has a lovely vibe. It is in the country, but it really isn't far to town and very handy to the falls. Andy was a helpful host and made a decent breakfast - and the shower was fabulous with great water pressure. I would certainly go there again.

Historic house, nicely renovated inside but outside requiring a little more love and attention. Breakfasts are excellent. Do not miss having dinner here, the food is absolutely first class, with choice. We stayed 4 nights and ate in 1st and last nights and the menu had changed. Extremely friendly and helpful hosts.

We were so glad we chose to stay at Lupton Lodge during our travel through the North Island. Andy and Karen were wonderful hosts, and both were so helpful and accommodating. We arrived early, and Karen provided us with detailed maps and directions for possible hikes - we chose the Matapouri Headland and Whale BayTracks, and were treated to the... More

We stayed for 2 nights in the upstairs room of the barn conversion. The room was comfortable and well equipped with an excellent bathroom. Andy was most helpful before and during our stay, making reservations for restaurants, taxis and diving trips on our behalf. He also proved himself a skilful cook at both breakfast and dinner. He and his wife... More

Stayed at Lupton Lodge for two nights - comfortable beds, lovely swimming pool, friendly hosts and an excellent breakfast both mornings - Lupton Lodge is in an excellent location close to Whangarei but still far enough out to enjoy the beautiful far north night sky, an absolutely lovely end to our summer thanks so much

Lupton Lodge is a bit out of town but the place is terrific. We stayed in the green room which was extremely large with a nice size bathroom and everything was spotless. Andy, the owner, was as nice as could be and is a great cook. We hd two dinners there and he let's you know what he will be... More

I stayed at this property twice in a one week period. I stayed in both rooms in the recently converted barn and found both rooms to be excellent. I most enjoyed the room on the lower level with its additional space, private patio, and a kitchenette. The hosts are friendly and helpful with suggestions on activities and restaurant recommendations. Breakfast... More

We had a suite, two large rooms and a shower room which had beautiful wooden floors and stylish decoration coupled with right up to date amenities. Service was excellent. When we booked we where...
