We were so glad we chose to stay at Lupton Lodge during our travel through the North Island. Andy and Karen were wonderful hosts, and both were so helpful and accommodating. We arrived early, and Karen provided us with detailed maps and directions for possible hikes - we chose the Matapouri Headland and Whale BayTracks, and were treated to the...

We stayed for 2 nights in the upstairs room of the barn conversion. The room was comfortable and well equipped with an excellent bathroom. Andy was most helpful before and during our stay, making reservations for restaurants, taxis and diving trips on our behalf. He also proved himself a skilful cook at both breakfast and dinner. He and his wife...

Stayed at Lupton Lodge for two nights - comfortable beds, lovely swimming pool, friendly hosts and an excellent breakfast both mornings - Lupton Lodge is in an excellent location close to Whangarei but still far enough out to enjoy the beautiful far north night sky, an absolutely lovely end to our summer thanks so much

I stayed at this property twice in a one week period. I stayed in both rooms in the recently converted barn and found both rooms to be excellent. I most enjoyed the room on the lower level with its additional space, private patio, and a kitchenette. The hosts are friendly and helpful with suggestions on activities and restaurant recommendations. Breakfast...

We're so glad for trip advisor if only to have found Lupton lodge! The large purple room above the barn was as lovely as the photos, scrupulously clean, well maintained, lovely bathroom. The linens were so comfortable and I am picky! The location was perfect, between Tutukaka and Whangarei in the countryside. Andy and Karen are gracious and obviously dedicated...
