Our History

Originally Hotel Titirangi, Lopdell House was built and promoted as a ‘Castle on the Fringe of Heaven’. The Spanish mission-style hotel could accommodate over 60 guests in its fully carpeted rooms with ensuites. It had a small shop, tea-room, observation deck and a restaurant with a dance floor.

Lopdell Trust
