The service was faultless and our food and wine were exceptional. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and the attention to detail and have been recommending Kinross to friends and family!!! Thank you! We will definitely be back (with Arthur the cocker spaniel) who was also treated as a member of the family - he loved the attention!!! Thank you!

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 stayed with Kinross for 2 nights and we were so impressed as soon as we drove in the gates the presentation of the grounds and buildings was excellent. A very warm welcome and we saw our accommodation which was just brilliant! A very good spacious layout and very comfortable bed and a lovely bathroom. The view straight out to the vineyard was lovely and we were very surprised how quite the main road was too. We had wine tastings which was very good and informative done by Gerald who was knowledgeable on all the wines. We even joined the wine club too so we can have the wines delivered to home. Dinner and breakfast was divine! Thoroughly recommend Kinross five stars well earned!

Highly recommend the wine tasting - excellent range, knowledgeable staff without pretentiousness. Food was excellent, great service and the atmosphere could not be more ‘under the vines’ in autumn. Looking forward to trying the hot tub Love it and will be back.
