You cannot go past this place if you’re in the region. It is positioned on a large property outside the main town so provides peace and quiet. Andy is a fantastic host and will provide all the local knowledge required to get the most out of your trip.
Make sure you include a dive at 'Poor Knights island'. If your nice, Andy will back you a fantastic lunch to take out.

If you're looking for something away from the tourist sites this is a relaxing alternative. Amazing food, welcoming hosts, and well-appointed facilities. Fantastic claw-foot bath to soak in. Close to beautiful beaches, orchards and ten to fifteen minutes to Whangarei. Definite "find" for anyone making a leisurely trip north.

Room Tip: Gold room if you like a bath but is smaller than other rooms.

I stayed at Lupton Lodge in November 2011 whilst on business and can definitely recommend it. Andy is incredibly accommodating and makes your stay a very personal one, the food is awesome and the rooms luxurious. Will definitely stay there again and highly recommend it.

Room Tip: The Red Room was top class!
