We stayed one night on our way to Russell. Karen and Andy run an exceptional B & B. Karen welcomed us warmly and took the time to show us around the house. We had booked the Red Room and it was by far the largest room we have had in a B & B. The room had a separate room as a sitting room which also had a fridge. Through the sitting room was a spacious and well stocked bathroom. Andy made a very good and wholesome breakfast. The grounds of the B&B have many fruit trees and a friendly bull! The location of Lupton Lodge is very good just a few kilometres from Whangarei and a 15 minute drive to the Tutukaka Coast. Lovely home, lovely hosts, lovely area.
