We were warmly welcomed on our arrival and shown to our spacious room. It was well appointed with free wifi. Bed was comfortable and we slept well. We ate both nights at The Lodge - Andy is a great cook and there is a good wine list - prices are reasonable. You will need a car to tour the area... More

An amazing 8 days in Lupton Lodge. We stayed in the very nicely refurbished Barn, with our 3 kids, after a two weeks of motor-home trip in the south. The barn is a great place for the families, as the kids have some privacy in the beautiful top floor appartment. We enjoyed the bbq, the breakfasts, the heated pool, the... More

Welcomed by Andy to our comfortable suite with adjoining sitting area and bathroom we admired the architecture and decor of this older establishment. Dinner was outstandingly prepared and served by Andy- the salmon was spectacular and we ate there both nights. We wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy even more contents of his well stocked wine cellar! His... More

We were a little worried this lodge might be a bit far from town for restaurants and other supplies. Not the case at all, except you will need a car: it's less than 10 mins. Andy, the informative host was able to give us some tips for good local eating, and the breakfast he and his partner cooked up was... More

Andy is the best host and provided excellent meals. The room was spacious with a private balcony looking over the garden. It was interesting to stay in an historic house situated beside an orchard. I would highly recommend the Lodge to travelers heading up north of New Zealand.

Andy is a great host, very welcoming. We felt very at home. Good personal touch emailing us before arrival to check we were ok. Really nice spacious rooms, great breakfast. We would for sure stay again.

First entering the driveway, I felt like I was going back in time to some colonial era because the first house encountered is a heritage site with charming wooden verandahs and old-styled brackets, etc. However, the interior of the house was not old at all but rather modern yet still quaint and cosy. Andy (the lodge owner) uses the kitchen... More

Andy "the chef" is a regular contributor to TA forum and his suggestions to us regarding our itinerary for our 4 week stay in NZ was very helpful. He also directed us to his own Lupton Lodge and we are very pleased he did. We stayed there on our first night in NZ, and again on our way back to... More

A lovely old home in a beautiful garden. Our room was comfortable and very well appointed. The owners were helpful and the breakfast excellent. Really nothing but positives ......if anything my only criticism would be it was a little far from town but that really isn't an issue and adds to its peacefulness in my view. Very good basically...would have... More

Old charm hotel but recently renovated with taste, homely, clean, friendly owner and good food. Location is convenient for car drivers, close to the falls and on the road to the coast (Matapuri, Sandy beach, Tutukaka), they have a car park. Lovely garden as well. They have also a pool and leisure room with a pool table.
