Went for a wine tasting and lunch, was pleasantly surprised. Very good and cautious with allergies, good staff, and wine tasting is a must! Lunch was lovely. Good selection for everybody. Wine tasting gave us a good selection of wines to taste.

Hotel's Favourite
We loved our three night stay at Kinross. Staff were warm and welcoming. Instructions clear and check in easy. We enjoyed the wine tasting, knowledgeable and friendly staff. The meals were great, service friendly and staff always asked how our food was and were interested in our day. The rooms were great. Spacious and clean. Amazing beds and lovely linen. We enjoyed the location , it was great to sit and look over a vineyard as the sun streamed in . We biked on the trail in to Arrowtown, it was amazing. A great place to sit and unwind, or get out and about. Thanks to the awesome staff for making us feel so welcome .

We enjoyed the most fantastic stay with Kinross with our young family. Everything was just perfect, beautiful location, room and setting, but mostly the staff were just so good, welcoming, helpful and friendly really made it. Martial's wine tasting was really great too. Thank you all :)

Kinross has it all. We first visited on a wine tour and subsequently joined their wine club (which I think is the best value wine club in Central Otago - with the best perks). A year and a half later we returned to stay at their cottages. Hands down, this is one of the best places to stay in the Queenstown region, it's close enough to town but far enough away that you get a chance to really relax, take in the stunning scenery and explore the nearby wineries. We will always come back here, it's a special place and the accommodation itself is comfortable and luxurious without being overstated. Each cottage has everything you need and is an easy walk to the restaurant for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Being amongst the vines is a wonderful thing, the grounds are beautifully maintained and spa bath is a real treat. The Kinross team did a great job looking after us and we can't wait to visit again soon!
