On arriving we were not surprised to find that the reviews we have read about Lupton Lodge are honest and true. Andy was a great host, he really made us feel at home, we were upgraded to the 'Blue Room' which was beautiful, there was plenty of space to move around, and the bed was spotless and comfortable. We chose... More

The kids loved the cows, goats and sheep being outside the window. Lupton Lodge is NOT Close to town it is though ideal for families and those heading north or diving... More

We were greeted by the friendly hosts who gave us a quick tour, they then gave us space, leaving us to do our own thing. We booked in the quiet season so our room got upgraded. The room was clean and comfortable, very spacious. Yummy truffles placed in our room showed the effort the hosts put in, little gestures like... More

We stayed here in the run up to Christmas and found the place and food was very average. The property is set in a delightful area but the building itself was old and tired although the room we were allocated was large with a separate lounge area. The ensuite was very small.

Thankyou for your review. I was slightly disappointed to read your comments as Lupton Lodge obviously didn't quite live up to your expectations. The building is most certainly old, it is an 1896, historically listed villa. This in itself limits us in what changes or maintenance works we are allowed to carry out to the exterior of the property, but... More

The elegance of Lupton Lodge was a fun surprise. The room was beautiful and very comfortable. And the bathroom was perfection - especially the shower! They have really put a lot of thought into every detail and it shows. We highly recommend the dinner option; Andy created a beautiful dinner for us - it was easily one of the best... More

I think this place must have been the prettiest I stayed at so far. Beautiful setting, gorgeously restored old villa with eye for the history and still all modern amenities. Amazing breakfast and such lovely service. Even has a pool for summer

Thankyou very much for your lovely review and glad you enjoyed your stay. Just for sake of accuracy for other people viewing this review, our lodge is 6km (5 minutes) from Tikipunga, which is the 1st part of suburban Whangarei city with shopping and eating options, and we are 11km (10 minutes) from the central city.
