We stayed at Kinross & brought bikes from home to do a self guided tour of the Gibbston valley wineries. Kinross was a perfect base. The setting is so pituresque, the cottages are pretty much among the vines & very pleasant inside. We had dinner at the restaurant & it was excelle

Hi, how far is Kinross from Queenstown airport? And how much does it cost in a taxi or shuttle for 6 people?
Hi Mayfad, we are 20 mins from Queenstown Airport. We advise renting a car as taxis are possible however you will not have the same freedom. All our best, Team Kinross

Are there on site laundry facilities? Washer/Outdoor Hanger? Thank you
Hi there, this is Christine, the owner of Kinross. So sorry its taken us so long to answer, I thought I had posted the answer to your question last week, but it didn't go through! So the answer is that we don't have laundry facilities, but some of our guests are happy to do hand washing and we have some drying racks we can lend you. The rooms are spacious so there is plenty of room to have the drying rack up, or else on a sunny day out of the deck works too. If you were in a real pickle, Jeremaia our manager would probably lend you his personal laundry facilities in his home, if you asked really nicely! Hope this helps, and happy travelling. Christine
