If you get here it’s because you probably have driven many kilometers. So if you are ready for some kick back time, then this is the place! Spacious cottage with hip decor. Tub for two if you can! Best high speed Wi-Fi of any lodging we experienced in NZ. And if you are reading this you know how dreadful it is in most places. Little cafe is perfect for the included breakfast. Wine tasting choices are Pinot heaven. Staff make you feel like you are in their home with warm hospitality. Enjoy the outdoor palisade complete with a kick butt fireplace. I personally burned an entire forest one night as we drank our wine and chatted till the wee hours. Marvelous! Best stay in NZ says the wife. And her opinion counts!!!!

Your review made us smile HEAPS!!!
As one of our managers says... "Happy wife, happy life"!
We are super pleased to be considered your best stay in NZ and grateful that you have taken the time to share your thoughts. We have really put a lot of love into all the little details from the fireplace to Wi-Fi, Hot Tub Time Machine, Breakfast and the wine partners that we represent and it makes us so happy when it makes a difference to our guests NZ experience. We always recommend a minimum of 3 nights to our guests to ENSURE that you also get the time to relax and enjoy both the hustle and bustle of the area and also the natural, peaceful, rejuvenating qualities that our Wine region offers.
We hope that your travels bring you back to Kinross & we hope to welcome you again, soon.

We recently booked 8 rooms for North Island clients at Kinross Cottages - the service was faultless and the beds incredibly comfortable. Highly recommend for a secluded break away from the city. Amazing wines on offer too!

Great spot for a quiet getaway in wine country. Knowledgable staff for tasting some of the local gems that don't have their own cellar doors. We enjoyed the jovial crowd of locals gathering on Friday evening (a weekly occurrence apparently) for a few drinks.

Thank you for your review hollyboggs :) Our jovial Friday crowd always put a smile on our faces. The end of week gathering has become a regular affair and everyone is welcome for good times in the vines with great people!
Kinross sits on 40acres of beautiful grounds and gives you the choice to be as social... Or antisocial as you wish :)
We hope to welcome you back soon,
All our best,

Kinross is somewhere very special. A gorgeous accommodation right in the heart of wine country Queenstown but also somewhere when we left we felt like family. Roaring fires, lovely pinot and a cottage that blew us away. Well done Lizzie and Adam.

Looking for a private, well-decorated, and cozy cottage with a picturesque view from your bed? Kinross Cottage has it. Wanting a delicious meal or coffee served by friendly staff with a great sense of humor in a cute bistro? Kinross can fulfill that. Even better, if you have food allergies such as myself, they can make a gluten-free and dairy-free dinner for you and still make it taste amazing! Seeking a warm greeting by the lovely owners each day during your stay? Kinross can guarantee that for you. From the moment my husband and I arrived, Kinross went above and beyond to make our honeymoon stay everything we hoped for and more. Lizzy, one of the owners graciously greeted us and gave us a run down of all their wonderful amenities and even surprised us with a bottle of champagne when we got to our room. Every meal we had they were able to accommodate my food allergies without a problem and always kept a smile on their face. You can’t beat the location either. We woke up from our comfy bed with snow capped mountains above the vineyard and sunshine. My husband and I love how family friendly Kinross is too. They have a play area for the kids if parents want to enjoy the wine garden. There’s tons of trails nearby to walk or cycle too. We wish we could’ve stayed longer but we’ll definitely be back. The friendships we made with the staff certainly made a lasting impression and we couldn’t have asked for a better stay. Thank you all so much for everything. Hope to see you again soon...
