Hotel's Favorite
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 loved our stay at Kinross, staff were super friendly - big thank you to Yvonne for our amazing wine tasting and tailoring it to suit (I don't drink red) she found some fabulous wines for us to try. We enjoyed the dinner and our room was amazing, very spacious and bed was extremely comfortable. Loved the personalised sheet ready in our room with all our details. The only thing that let our stay down was the breakfast. We both had a Rosti stack, it wasn't really a stack, more of a rosti with mushrooms on the side. We both ordered a side of bacon and were served two small pieces each - no bigger than a eftpos card. That was the only slight disappointment to our stay.
