Fabulous!

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! Guest from More…

One of the Best Experiences

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 quiet. The host’s were very accommodating and generous with their hospitality. Well done Andy and Karen I truly was impressed More…

Cool!

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.

Lupton Lodge was one of the best Lodges I stayed during my trip in New Zealand! A highlight during my travel and to stay at Lupton Lodge! It is such a wonderful and beautiful place and lodge close to Whangerei. Calm and in the middle of nature. Just a paradise to spend a few days More…

Great Find

We stayed one night in the Purple room, and had dinner that evening. Andy was a very good host, and delivered great food during our brief stay. Very relaxing location, and the room was exceptional – beautifully decorated and extremely spacious. The ensuite shower room was also amazing. We wished we could have stayed longer More…

First Class Food

We had no idea that Lupton Lodge would be so good, from the bedroom to the restaurant the standard was very very high. You must try the breakfast, it is fantastic, Andy is a great cook, we stayed there for two nights & didn’t bother to go into the city to eat, the food at More…

Not a B&B – it’s a Luxury Boutique Hotel!

Lupton Lodge is a lovely boutique hotel with a variety of different rooms in an old house with loads of character and history. We were treated to a gourmet dinner on arrival cooked by our host who may well have missed his calling as a chef! (I’d strongly recommend taking up the dinner offer as More…

A Perfect Jetlag Recovery Retreat

I brought two friends to NZ to visit the far north island. I chose Lupton Lodge specifically as a place to recover from a long international flight and the stress of my first attempt at driving on the opposite side of the road. I knew that my priority would be a good sleep and a More…

Peaceful Setting

We stayed at Lupton Lodge for two nights. The restored home is in the countryside, near town, on grounds covered with fruit trees and roses. Our room was pleasant and comfortable; it didn’t have a seating area but it did have a huge bathroom. The lodge has a large guest lounge in an adjacent building More…

Elegant Retreat

This is a home of great character which has been converted to lovely B&B accommodation. We had 2 nights in the red room which has a separate sitting area. We had pre-booked dinner on our first night which was so nice after our long drive. Andy provided a menu with several choices and the meal More…
