Malcom is an exceptional chef, preparing immaculate and inventive meals for the residents of just five rooms. The dining room looks out over a picture book view of vineyards and hills. Rooms are stylish and service is excellent. The view from the room with a balcony is very special.

Fantastic stay here. I probably had one of life's best dining experiences here. Malcolm is so talented and together with his lovely Elli-they provide sheer happiness. Having tried several Michelin awarded restaurants in my life I must say they deserve 2. New Zeeland delivers. TOP NOTCH!

Perfect hosting, beautiful setting and such peace as all the reviews have confirmed. Ellie and Malcolm are the best hosts we have ever experienced. Nothing was too much trouble but never over the top. To focus on front of house service by Ellie it was exceptional - fresh coffee and biscuits delivered to room on arrival, - homemade lavender products...

Malcolm and Ellie are very friendly hosts who provide a warm and inviting stay in their Tuscan 'villa-styled' Lodge perched on a hillside tucked away on a quiet lane just outside of Hastings. Easy driving access to Havelock North and Napier makes this a great location to visit the local wineries. Malcolm (noted chef) served up some delicious degustation dinners...

We spent 2 nights at the Breckenridge lodge last week. Everything about the lodge was top-notch. Elle and Malcom were fantastic hosts. The main highlight of out trip was the food Malcom dished out for all of us. All the guests were seated in a formal seating and he explained in details of what was being cooked that day. His...

Words seem inadequate in describing the 2 nights of comfort and pampering we experienced at Breckenridge Lodge recently . Ellie and Malcolm made us most welcome to this world of beauty, good food , comfortable beds and tastefully decorated rooms in their purpose built lodge . Malcolm's knowledge on wines from the Hawkes Bay area and his cooking and food...

When you read a series of superlative reviews of an accommodation but have yet to visit curiosity is always considerable. If a Lodge based holiday is a new experience that curiosity is all the greater. For anyone - like us - doing this for the first time, whilst (to date) everywhere we have been has hit high standards, some places...

Had a two night stay here following a very busy itinerary on the North Island and it was just what we needed. We had a warm welcome from Malcolm and Ellie and were made to feel comfortable and at home from the moment we walked in. We sat outside without even thinking about unpacking our bags, and had refreshments overlooking...
