I have visited whangarei for many years, and I always found it difficult to find somewhere amazing until I found lupton lodge 2 years ago. The standard of rooms are fantastic, immaculate, warm & beautifully presented. You can can also have a restaurant standard dinner & breakfast.

Nothing is missing, you want for nothing we were in the Blue room which had a sitting room as well that looked over the garden, its own bathroom , great shower. I had arranged the romantic weekend, and it was perfect, the dinner Andy... More

My first visit was a few years ago and is my first choice to stay whenever I need to return to Whangarei. Home away from home for visiting my ailing father. Lupton Lodge is easy to get to, is situated in a lovely part of Whangarei countryside and is a quick and easy drive from town centre. Andy and Peanut... More

I stay at Lupton Lodge on a monthly basis and very much enjoy the hospitality and convenience it offers. Rooms are well looked after and Andy makes my favourite meal every time! Better than restaurant food! I highly recommend staying here. - Amy

Fantastic rooms, amazing service, great food. I stayed here once a month for 2 years. They go to every effect to make you comfortable and it was my home away from home. I recommend the evening meals as Andy is a great cook.

This is an old house, built in Whangarei just before 1900 and moved to its present location, out in the country, about 30 years ago. Over the last 10 years the owners have put tremendous effort into modernizing the place, and they've done a fine job. The results can be idiosyncratic (an entrance hall becomes a bathroom with one door... More

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.
