We spent two great nights with Malcolm and Ellie. Quite apart from the great food, the warmth and genuineness of their welcome was outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble, and they were always trying to ensure we were taken care of. This is the way it should be done!

Breckenridge Lodge is a superb lodge outside Napier, in a beautiful setting on the hillside overlooking the vineyards and distant Napier Hills. Ellie & Malcolm are great hosts, very warm and welcoming, and as chef, Malcolm doesn't disappoint either - the standard of food is excellent! When we arrived we were too tired to contemplate the 5 course tasting menu,...

We were looking for somewhere special for out 25th wedding anniversary and choose the Breckenridge - a choice which proved to be inspired. Only five rooms but this allows the hosts to deliver a very personal experience for guests. Rooms look out over vineyards and there are extensive gardens. However the food was absolutely stunning with Malcolm going through each...

Hubby and I were here for 3 nights on our 6 week retirement tour of New Zealand. We were relaxed from the moment we arrived. The beautiful house and grounds, located in a bucolic rural setting outside of Napier, were designed by Malcolm. Ellie and Malcolm pretty much take care of everything for you from the moment you arrive. They...

Really enjoyed our 3 night stay here as Malcolm and Ellie are fabulous hosts. Dined in the Lodge each evening and loved the fact that all the guests are invited for pre dinner drinks. We all dined together at a large communal table which makes for a convivial atmosphere. Malcolm prepares exceptional meals, accompanied by local wines and served beautifully...
