Lupton Lodge

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 20, 2014

Excellent 2 night stay in a lovely characterful property. Clean, comfortable and quiet. Andy made us very welcome. He is an excellent cook and provided a delicious dinner on our first night and outstanding breakfasts. A lovely restored and extended property full of original features. A lounge and pool, for guests to use, enhanced our stay. Centrally located for both Whangarei and the beautiful Tutukaka coast. We would recommend Lupton Lodge to anyone travelling to that area.

Over the past 5 years I have stayed in many hotels, motels and Lodges. This Lodge is by far the best place I have stayed in, it was home away from home. Clean, classy and quite. The host's were very accommodating and generous with thier hospitality. Well done Andy and Karen I truly was impressed with your high standards.

Room Tip: My only advice is "stop and stay"

We loved staying here for 3 nights, 24th to 27th Jan, could of stayed much longer.
Andy and Karen were so friendly and helpful, the perfect hosts.
Andy's breakfasts and dinners were delicious, he is a very talented cook.
We had so much fun playing pool in the games room in the evenings.
The actual accomodation was very high class, and we would highly recommend Lupton Lodge to everyone.
Thank you Andy and Karen from Linda and Malcolm Jan and Tony.

This was our final night in NZ and this wonderful property and friendly hosts were a last minute choice. Stunningly gorgeous B&B and we plan on returning some day. The whole Whangarei region was an unexpected surprise and possibly our favorite place in the entire country. Can't say enough good about Lupton Lodge!

I loved staying at the Lupton Lodge. My only regret is that we didn't stay longer. We stayed in the red room pictured above. the room was huge. The property itself was gorgeous. Andy was so kind and made the best breakfast.

I would highly recommend this place!!

The perfect place to use a base for exploring the area or just to relax in the lovely comfortable rooms, stroll around the orchard, read by the pool or just chill out in the lounge with heaps of books to read, CD's, DVD's or, like us, play pool for the first time in about 30 years. Andy and Karen are the friendliest and most helpful hosts ever, the breakfasts and dinners that Andy whips up are DELICIOUS, don't miss out on them.
We loved every minute of our stay here and will definitely return.
