Our 1 night stopover at Lupton Lodge kicked-off our Northland trip in great style. Stayed in the Red Room, which was more of a mini-suite really, with a large dressing room interconnecting the bedroom and en-suite. The high-ceilinged bedroom was spacious and furnished with a comfortable sofa and flat-screen TV. Andy prepared an excellent breakfast that set us up for the day ahead. Lupton Lodge set the bar very high for the rest of our trip and we were reluctant to move on so quickly. Would definitely recommend this as THE place to stay in the Whangarei area.
