Oasis

Posted Nov 21, 2014
Pros: The Host, the cuisine, and contemporary interior mixed with estate/grounds. Wish we had more time for a walk to see the outer property area.
Location: We had a car/GPS - it was easy to visit any location, city or rural. Andy's knowledge of the area and activities fit perfectly.
Andy is Host Extraordinaire - with tranquil and sophisticated facilities. After the drive from Auckland Intl Airport, he created superb dinner/dessert for us (pre-arranged). His knowledge of area activities plus maps/directions are immediate and precise. Access to hotel after late drive to Cape Reinga was readily available. It truly was the highlight stay in our 3 week New Zealand Holiday.

A fantastic stay

Posted Oct 23, 2014
Cons: Nothing.
Location: It was a little way out of Whangarei. The beautiful Whangarei Falls were nearbye. A15 minute drive took us to the Tutakaka coast.
Lupton Lodge was stunning. A historic home with all the floors made from kauri wood. Our room had a very large bedroom, a dressing room and bathroom. Breakfast was excellent and we had a lovely evening meal. The host was great - it was probably the best place we have ever stayed in.

All expectations were widely exceeded! Andy, the owner, not only provided a great personalized service but cooked a great home made meal and breakfast for us. All details in the rooms are widely covered and the surroundings look beautiful. Very comfortable and pretty place, not only we will come back but... We are counting the days to enjoy Lupton lodge again!

Lovely room with excellent staff

Posted Jun 1, 2014
This room was booked for us as a surprise through my mum in the UK. She has said that owner was very helpful, and when we got to the room he had written out a card for us on her behalf and left a bottle of champagne in the room for us. We only stayed one night and didn't spend much time there, but the room was lovely, super clean very spacious and really nicely decorated. We were also given access to a pool room which had a pool tables and a cd player with a huge variety of CD's. The owners were helpful and chatty and made us feel welcome, the room was lovely and the breakfast was great. Would definitely recommend!

Great B&B, wonderful food!!

Posted Apr 25, 2014 on Hotels.com
You need a car if you stay here but it's very easy to find with GPS navigation. We received a very warm welcome with lots of local info on what to do/where to go. The room was spacious and clean, with an adjoining room with double aspect windows, desk and single bed. There was even a lovely jar of goodies by the bed in our room to munch on :) Andy is a wonderful chef and breakfast was superb! We ate dinner there each night we stayed and the food was fantastic with a good wine list. There's an outdoor pool on site with a billiard room and library. A great place!

Wunderschoenes grosses Zimmer

Posted Apr 15, 2014 on Hotels.com
Wir haben im Green Room uebernachtet und waren von Groesse und Einrichtung des Zimmers sehr positiv ueberrascht. Es war alles vorhanden, um auch einen laengeren Aufenthalt geniessen zu koennen. Neben einer eigenen Terasse mit Grill und Aussenmoebeln gibt es ein kleines Schwimmbecken sowie eine sehr gemuehtliche Bibliothek. Fruehstueck war ausreichend und konnte individuell bestellt werden. Alles war supersauber und wir werden gern wieder einmal in der Lupton Lodge uebernachten.
