Part of a tour of some of the New Zealand wine areas. Most of the time, we were out sampling he local vineyards so it didn't much matter where we stayed. In hindsight, we might have stayed elsewhere if we’d known we would be spending so little time there in the first place, but this was a sweet place all... More

From our arrival, to the accommodations, to the view, the breakfast, the dinner .... This place rocks! The setting above Blenheim provides amazing views, not only from the inviting terrace but also from the pool, jacuzzi and the rooms. The breakfast was a never ending feast of homemade pastries and the best Eggs Benedict we ever had. The 5 course... More

The lucky traveller sometimes finds a perfect place, we did. So when in Blenheim, stay at Bec Lodge. Sarah and Dave Anderson are charming, attentive and helpful hosts. Their welcome is genuine and thoughtful. The accomodation is first-class, the view and ambiance are stunning. The food is excellent. Dave is chef with a creative skill rarely found. We enjoyed a...

Perfect stay. Everything you could want in a luxury lodge - beauty, modern amenities from the kitchen to living spaces, bedrooms and bathrooms. Dave and Sarah(owners) are fabulous hosts and they happen to be two married chefs, which is a HUGE bonus. Our travel agent highly recommended the "degustation 5 course dinner with matching wines" and said she had heard... More

Thoroughly recommended - we were made very comfortable by the managers and enjoyed a very nice meal there . Nice views and not far out of town.

Having read the latest reviews before writing ours, we totally agree with everything said by the last few reviewers and feel there really isn't much more we can add! You simply run out of superlatives because it is such a truly amazing place to stay. Sitting on the hilltop with stunning views, it is stylish, relaxing, comfortable and peaceful. Sarah... More

My Wife and I stayed here for two nights in Jan 2011. We had planned to be more active during our stay, but after a busy few weeks travelling this was the place to stop, read, chill out and eat fine food. Having planned to spend some time around the vineyards, we were also planning on eating out. But once... More

BEC Lodge management has changed in the past 6 months--so do NOT rely on old reviews. Dave and Sarah have taken over the management of BEC and WOW is the best word. First, the lodge sits on a hill just outside of Blenheim with great views. Inside the Lodge is warm and very inviting. I have never seen a B&B... More

We booked into Bec Lodge as our Christmas present to ourselves. It was fairly expensive but sounded like just our kind of place. We both expected something like an English country manor house. Very grand. We were picked up at the airport by a driver from Marlborough tours, not the hotel itself. I knew we were out with Marlborough tours... More
