What a lovely place, located in a tranquil setting, close enough to town yet far enough away to provide a lovely peaceful setting. This lodge is unique with a lot of character. Some of the fixtures were antique and everything you could need was included, down to bathrobes in the closet. The kitchen is right out of a magazine and... More

Andy and Kerryn provide wonderful accommodation with the personal touch that we truly appreciated. Our celebration dinner was first class and breakfast a real treat! Thank you for your hospitality and you richly deserve every accolade that comes your way. Congratulations - if in the area of Whangerei or even nearby, head for Lupton Lodge! You could not do better!!!

We always like to support local business whenever we can during our holidays. The host Karen and Andy have done well with attention to details for their client market and the service is just amazing. The place makes you feel like home away from home. Very affordable and just peaceful. Stayed a few nights and wanted to extend just to... More

Andrew was very kind to upgrade us to a larger room. Room was nicely done. Bathroom was decent sized. I liked how the property was set up and designed. Andrew was amazing to basically run the place himself though I understand there is a helper to clean the rooms. They even provide free milk in the room.

First let me say if you are looking for a 5 star international type hotel then this place is not for you. This place has character! We stayed here twice. On our way to the Bay of Islands, and again on our return. It is a charming place. Set in lovely gardens and orchards. We stayed in the "Blue Room"... More

Stayed here for 1 night when in the area to visit friends. It's a beautiful property, our room was lovely, extremely spacious and the bed was really comfortable. Breakfast was included and was delicious. Would definitely recommend Lupton lodge.

What lovely accommodation in a great location. Andy, the host, is clearly a perfectionist. The furnishings, decor and breakfast could not be nicer. We also had dinner at the lodge and all 3 of us thought our meals were fantastic. We were really pleased we had eaten in. The location is also great for walkers, although a car is required.... More

We thought it would be wonderful and it was. An idyllic setting beautifully appointed coupled with relaxed friendly and attentive service from our host Andy makes this an absolute highlight of our NZ holiday. Oh and the food is delicious too! 💖

Stayed at Lupton Lodge for 3 nights. Easy to find. About 5 minutes drive from Whangarei town. We stayed in the loft room above the annexe. The room and bathroom was so big and had all the amenities we required. The bed was very comfy. Free Wi-Fi. Breakfast was good and tasty. Andy, the owner was friendly and helpful (he... More

I didn't know what to expect when I read the reviews on TripAdvisor but I was looking forward to a nice stay. What I found was a gorgeous farm house with 12 foot ceilings. Lovingly restored to a old world charm with the modern fittings of a 5 star hotel. It is quite a way out of town so don't... More
