Going to be hard to top this

Posted Feb 27, 2015
Although the perfect romantic getaway local, this B&B was well suited for traveling with a toddler. With a large orchard, cows and chickens there was lots to explore. The breakfast was delicious, company was pleasant, our hosts were so helpful with travel tips, local information, & extras for the littlw, and our gourmet dinner was lovely. Great beds and everything you would need. Only drawbacks were we came too late in the season for the pool to be warm enough and the walls were a bit thin when we had upstairs neighbors.

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!
