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.

Peace & Quiet

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 More…
