Lupton Lodge describes itself as “a stunning historic villa providing luxurious boutique Whangarei accommodation” – well it is and it does. The rooms are large, airy and well furnished – we were given the Red Room which I think is the biggest. There is a large well equipped guest lounge and a pool.
The Lodge is a few miles out of Whangarei which isn’t a problem since you will almost certainly have a car, but you might like to consider taking the option of the evening meal which is available. We did and were very glad to have done so. There was a good choice, the food was well prepared and presented, and the overall quality was as good as any you’d expect from a decent restaurant.
