“The best B&B i have stayed at by far”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2011

You cannot go past this place if you’re in the region. It is positioned on a large property outside the main town so provides peace and quiet. Andy is a fantastic host and will provide all the local knowledge required to get the most out of your trip.
Make sure you include a dive at 'Poor Knights island'. If your nice, Andy will back you a fantastic lunch to take out.

If you're looking for something away from the tourist sites this is a relaxing alternative. Amazing food, welcoming hosts, and well-appointed facilities. Fantastic claw-foot bath to soak in. Close to beautiful beaches, orchards and ten to fifteen minutes to Whangarei. Definite "find" for anyone making a leisurely trip north.

Room Tip: Gold room if you like a bath but is smaller than other rooms.

I stayed at Lupton Lodge in November 2011 whilst on business and can definitely recommend it. Andy is incredibly accommodating and makes your stay a very personal one, the food is awesome and the rooms luxurious. Will definitely stay there again and highly recommend it.

Room Tip: The Red Room was top class!

We spent one night at Lupton Lodge and enjoyed it very much. It is an old home that has been renovated. The room we stayed in was very spacious and had a bedroom, sitting room and ensuite. Breakfast was fantastic and we ate overlooking the swimming pool. The owners were very nice and were careful to let their guests have personal space. They live in another building on site. We enjoyed driving around this accommodation and their is an very nice waterfall and walk just before you get to the Lodge. We would definitely recommend this B and B to anyone wanting to relax and explore the surrounding area.
