You will not be disappointed by this place. The hosts are brilliant, the room and amenities were great and the gardens and views were amazing. The highlight was the perfect meal hosted by Malcolm and Ellie. The food was interesting, tasted exquisite and was matched with amazing wines. Good conversation was had with the other guests. I can quite happily...

Wow - hands down the best food in the entire universe. Malcolm's creations will send you to the moon with every bite. It's seriously THAT good. Oh, and the wine pairing is beyond perfect and will leave your taste buds dancing. I loved how he would explain each dish between courses... it really made the dining experience extra special. I...

This hotel had been hyped up by our travel agent and we were disappointed. The rooms were good but the bathroom was a real let down. There was a musty odour emanating from the shower curtain and the shower broke down on the first day. The eating experience was very disappointing [very very small portions] and extremely over-priced. The gardens...

We stayed in many and varied places during our 3 weeks in New Zealand, but none surpassed Breckenridge Lodge. Malcolm and Ellie were wonderfully welcoming, the location is peaceful with a beautiful garden and Malcolm's cooking was absolutely outstanding. I particularly enjoyed my demonstration in the kitchen! Thank you both

We had a fantastic experience at Breckenridge Lodge, and Ellie and Malcolm were wonderful hosts. The setting is beautiful and very unique. We were greeted warmly by Malcolm, who brought us glasses of wine to enjoy on our private terrace. Our room was comfortable and nicely furnished, with a stunning vineyard view out large windows. We took a walk around...

I notice that one reviewer here feels that Breckenridge Lodge is over priced. Well, yes, it is expensive, but in my opinion, worth every penny, (or cent!) From the time we arrived, both Ellie and Malcolm made us very welcome. Our room looked out over the vineyards and as soon as we were settled in our room, Malcolm appeared with...

Lovely accommodation made special by Ellie who has added those extra touches in the rooms. Nothing is too much trouble and both Ellie and Malcolm are very helpful with directions, arranging tours and suggestions. Malcolm is an acclaimed chef. Dinner is a gourmet delight of flavours matched by excellent wine and the company of other guests. A relaxing idyll after...

Lodges in New Zealand are VERY expensive but most give some reasonable value for money. This one at nearly $1000 per night fell VERY short. No TV in room, no full length mirror, no shower cap. VERY dreary decor and only mediocre food. The owners try to make up for its shortcomings by being very welcoming but they should instead...

We stayed in the lodge as part of a bicycle tour of Hawkes Bay. The room has an expansive view of vineyards and the surrounding hills and was very comfortable. Ellie and Malcolm are gracious hosts and Malcolm is a talented chef. The surrounding gardens are a credit to Ellie and Malcolm. The plastic bags placed over our bicycle seats...
