Stayed here for 2 night and it was just wonderful. Came late afternoon and where welcomed by the owner and his staff - got a room with a stunning view over the grapes. Even through we came late in the afternoon, they asked if we would like to join for pre dinner drinks and dinner the same evening. We were... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and ate in both nights. The host, Malcolm, is passionate about his food and the wine served with it. I had a few things I could not eat and Malcolm dealt with this in a very professional manner. All guests dined together and Malcolm explained each course and wine chosen before serving. Even the...

I knew this place was going to be special - the view, the accommodation, the food, the hosts all fantastic. Hubby and I needed some good chill time after busy work schedules and picked the right place to come to. Loved the HB and Breckenridge is something very special. Malcolm and Ellie are the best hosts. We loved Malcolm's fresh... More

This lodge is a wonderful place to stay for several days. The lodge itself is purpose built and is very comfortable, warm and welcoming. We were lucky enough to stay on one of the rare occasions when snow had fallen overnight on the foothills of the Hawkes Bay ranges. What a gorgeous site it was. The location of this lodge... More

If you really want to be pampered, overlooking a Winery in a quiet location, then stay at the Breckenridge and let Ellie and Malcolm take care of you, they are both such lovely people. You will not want to leave! The rooms are amazing in a very tasteful way with teas and fresh coffee freely available, although as soon as... More

Fabulous service, excellent food, peaceful atmosphere and attentive hosting - if you want to feel pampered this is the place for you. As part of our honeymoon we had a 2 night stay in a large comfortable room with a balcony over the vineyards. We ate in and experienced Malcolm's wonderful 5 course meal with wines - served in a...

We chose Breckinridge Lodge after reading so many complimentary reviews. They weren't wrong as it an amazing place to stay. Quiet, comfortable, relaxed and friendly, with beautiful views from the Lavender Room out over the vineyards and stunning gardens. Malcolm and Ellie are the perfect hosts and couldn't be more helpful. Malcolm's skills in the kitchen are incredible, and he... More

Breckenridge Lodge was our second stop on our honeymoon. We didn't think the food in New Zealand could get any better, but then we met Malcolm! His dinners were impeccable (perfect wine pairings too!) and breakfasts were stunning as well. We really enjoyed meeting the other guests staying in the intimate lodge and found our room, the Chocolate Room, to... More

If you really want to feel like a "guest" in someone's home, go here. Excellent rooms and 5 star cuisine with the friendliest people anywhere. We didn't even bother to lock our room door. Grab a cup of coffee in the morning, open up your balcony and sit and watch the sun come up over the vineyard and distant hills.... More

I do not have enough superlatives in my vocabulary to describe this place! On arrival, we were met by the Lodge owners Malcolm and Ellie and their French sommelier, Geoffroy, who took our luggage, showed us to our large, impeccably clean room, offered us drinks and made us MOST welcome. We were given as much information and advice as we... More
