Lupton Lodge
Ranked #1 of 34 Hotels in Whangarei
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 January 2012

we spent one night at the lupton lodge in the red room. we found this accomodation in the b&b book we picked up at the airport and is was as excellent as it had promised in there:
fabulous huge room with extra sofa + extra room + big bathroom. Andy was a perfect host. He not only took us in during a game was on, but in addition offered to do our laundry which we got back dry and folded for a single charge.
breakfast was GOURMET! after travelling for 3 months we still have to say it was the best we ever got!
The place is beautiful. spacious, away from any noise but still close enough to the town of whangarei and a supermarket.
It's also most conveniently located if one wants to take a look at the waterfalls nearby. they are actually worth a look!
We didn't miss anything and were glad about the free wifi and the excellent value of the whole deal.
We highly recommend this B&B

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!
