The lodge in located in a very picturesque spot overlooking a vineyard. The grounds are spectacular and all the well appointed rooms overlook the vineyard. Malcom the Chef owner is simply amazing in the kitchen. If you are looking for 5 star gourmet meals paired with excellent wine look no further than the Breckenridge Lodge.

Malcolm and Ellie are excellent hosts. They go out of their way to make your stay truly special. The lodge is extremely comfortable with large bedrooms. The food is exceptional. Breakfasts are really good, but the dinners in the evening are as good as any Michelin star restaraunt. We ate in the lodge both nights and can't fault it. The... More

We ate in the Lodge on one of the nights joining six other guests around the communal dining table for the degustation menu with matched wines. Malcolm is a talented and... More

The food was exceptional and Malcolm's explanations of all the freshest ingredients that he chooses,mostly from their own gardens kept us spellbound. We really enjoyed a cycling tour of the Napier vineyards whilst... More

Malcolm & Ellie are the most attentive, humble hosts I have come across. They have a gorgeous home and cannot be more accommodating. Malcolm insisted on taking our bags to our room before getting us welcome drinks and showing us around. We enjoyed Malcolms cooking that evening booking in for the five course degustion menu which was fantastic. Brilliantly put... More

What a lovely spot. We were truly looked after by Malcolm and Ellie. The food was fantastic, Malcolm is a very talented chef and most accommodating to his guests, changing the menu for those that had particular preferences. There is plenty to see and do around the area and Malcolm and Ellie were very helpful with bookings and recommendations. We... More
