From the moment we drove into Kinross, our breath was taken away! WOW! The service, the beautiful grounds, the beds, the food and the wine were amazing! Charlotte and Sam really made our experience so special and we cannot thank them enough for their friendly hospitality ! We got married at the Winehouse and used the Kinross Cottages as our family and bridal party accommodation! It was perfect! We cannot wait to be back! Megan & Peter Papworth

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 .
