What a marvelous place to stay outside of a busy Queenstown in the summer. Huge comfortable bed , super clean, tons of hot water and a 5 and walk to an excellent breakfast, wine tasting and dinner. Couldn’t have asked for a better lace to kick off our tour of New Zealand

We have traveled all over the world and this was one of the top five places we've ever stayed at. As a young couple who loves nature, the outdoors, but also good food/wine, and also has a baby, Kinross was the perfect place for us. The location is stunning. Vineyards in a valley with gorgeous mountains all around. Just a short drive from Queenstown, Arrowtown, and other local attractions. The cottages are spacious, well-designed and with every imaginable amenity. The bistro serves amazing food with great free breakfasts, and the free nightly wine tasting is a fantastic bonus! It's a classy but casual place and VERY kid friendly, which we loved. Our little toddler loved exploring the grassy spaces, vineyards, and play areas. We stayed here three nights but wish we could have stayed more. We hope to return. DEFINITELY choose Kinross if you are visiting this part of New Zealand!
