Breckenridge Lodge, Napier

Breckenridge Lodge has a total fixation with comfort, sumptuous chef-created food and fine wine. Well, it is set in the heart of the fabled wine country of Hawke’s Bay.

Pre-dinner drinks designed to whet your appetite. A thoroughly indulgent degustation menu stretching over five courses - accompanied by carefully chosen wine highlighting the Hawke’s Bay area’s finest vintages. A chef whose dedication to fresh, seasonal and regional ingredients borders on fanaticism.

Decide to stay at Breckenridge Lodge during your luxury, tailor-made holiday to New Zealand and you could be forgiven for thinking you’ve reserved a place in foodie nirvana. But, of course, there’s more. The countryside surrounding Breckenridge is breath-taking. The picturesque Omarunui Valley rolls open before your eyes, the pretty Art Deco city of Napier is a short drive away; the unspoiled, typically New Zealand towns of Hastings and Taradale are also easily accessible. And, in the distance, the regal Kaweka Ranges frame the horizon.
