Excellent Boutique Experience

blue-room

It is an old house beautifully restored in the style of old Tuscany villa, maybe without many antics but with enough rich furniture and subtle decoration to give you feel of understated luxury. We had two adjoining rooms that I believe can be also rented separately. Spacious, with high ceilings and high quality wooden furniture More…

A Lovely Retreat

Had a lovely stay during a road trip taking in many locations, wished we had time to stay longer. Beautifully appointed lodge with friendly hosts and great food, a home from home. Would recommend this for a relaxing stay in a great spot! C from Tauranga, NZ Gold Room – January 2013 These comments have More…

What a Great Find!

Lupton Lodge is everything others have reported. An excellent website, efficient booking process, warm and personal welcome from on arrival, very comfortable, well-appointed rooms, attractive and peaceful location, delightful swimming pool and delicious food, prepared by the owner, Andy, who is also an accomplished chef ….. there is nothing not to like. If visiting Whangarei More…

Quality Accommodation and Service

We stayed for three nights using Whangarei as a base for a fast paced tour of Northland – no regrets at all although you do need to enjoy driving. Andy’s welcome was warm; he kindly served us dinner for our arrival – the experience was enhanced by us eating outside on the veranda. The Red More…

Best Place to Stay in New Zealand!

We are traveling New Zealand for 3 weeks, staying in 9 different hotels. The Lupton Lodge will be very hard to top. We really wish it would have been possible to pick up the entire property and take it with us from city to city. The rooms were very nicely decorated, comfortable and quite quiet More…

Quiet Haven for Business Travellers

This beautiful restored villa is a superb alternative to inner city hotels in Whangarei – only a short distance from town (although you probably would need your own vehicle) the rooms are spacious, breakfasts and dinners yummy and lovely small touches throughout that make you feel cared for and at home. Thanks Andy for a More…

Pure Luxury

Thank you Andy & Karen for a wonderful weekend away from Auckland. The Red room is great – loved the Kauri floors and decor, the bed was so comfortable. Evening meal was great and we had the games room all to ourselves. The calf and spring lamb in the Paddock were sweet – we felt More…
