We had a great time with Ellie and Malcolm. On the first night Malcolm cooked us a fabulous 5 course meal, but on our second evening we asked for something lighter, and he was happy to do that too. They are both very friendly and open and sat with us after dinner one evening to chat for a while. We... More

Malcolm, Ellie (& Tilly) are wonderful hosts. This is a thoughtful beautiful property with hosts to match. Should you decide to have dinner you won't be disappointed. The whole experience at Breckenridge Lodge is delightful.

Malcolm is a special chef.Hugely fresh and imaginative food mixed skilfully with superb wines.It is hard to imagine a better dining experience.But Malcolm and Ellie don't just hide behind the gourmet dining.They are warm but unobtrusive hosts,rushing to help with bags or give helpful advice.And when you open your bedroom curtains there is a great view over the vineyards.

Inspiring gourmet experience in unpretentious New Zealand style. Malcolm's Executive Chef skills perfectly combine with his Master Sommelier wine matching insights. Breckenridge dining is a must for epicurean travellers to enjoy what was one our best meals ever accompanied by generous tastings from his huge cellar of the best New Zealand wines along with a selection of fine European. He... More

Our three-day stay was excellent. Malcolm is a superb chef, and the multi-course meals with local wines were a treat. The Inn is conveniently located near Napier, and I recommend staying during the annual Art Deco Festival.

What an amazing lodge! We stayed at Breckenridge for 3 nights and loved it. The setting is beautiful - overlooking vineyards, surrounded by gardens, a great place to sit outside and enjoy a cup of coffee or a glass of wine! Our room was very clean and comfortable with a terrace overlooking the gardens. Malcolm is a fantastic host, and... More

We stayed for three nights at Breckenridge Lodge, a house in an interesting garden overlooking a vineyard. It was like staying at the home of friends, one of whom was a masterchef. The atmosphere was relaxed and nothing was too much trouble for Malcolm Redmond and Ellie. One afternoon we got in about 3.30 p.m. and Malcolm asked if we... More

Breckenridge lodge is in the valley of Omarunui, which is gorgeous. Our room overlooked a vineyard and the mountains. It is a very special B&B. The owner has done much of the work on the lodge himself. It has personal touches throughout. Our room was huge and so appealing. The hosts were so welcoming that we felt we were with... More

We recently stayed for 3 nights at Breckenridge Lodge early this month. Simply put, our stay was superb. Our room was the 'Vanilla' Room which is upstairs overlooking the vineyard and has its own balcony. The room was cosy, the bed extremely comfortable and incredibly clean. No dirt, grime or mould to be found - anywhere. It was also well... More

Malcolm redmond and his team of two assistants' unique combination of gourmet cooking and excellent hospitality makes this one of our top 5 places to stay in the world. Even the breakfasts were of Michelin presentation standard and served individually (no buffet here) and include, for instance fresh Local fruit in season served with home made lime sorbet, followed by...
