Boutique Vineyard Accommodation, Gibbston, Queenstown, Central Otago, New Zealand.

Wine Tasting, Bikes for hire, Hot Tub, Petanque, BBQ, picnic and play areas. Guest Laundry and Ski drying / storage. Children Welcome. Pets considered - please enquire. Nestled within our Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Gewurtztraminer vines, and located halfway between Queenstown and Cromwell, Kinross offers an unforgettable base for your next family holiday, romantic retreat, girls/boys weekend, conference or event. Its a 20 minute drive from New Zealand's adventure capital, Queenstown and just 10 minutes to historic Arrowtown. A perfect escape from the buzz of Queenstown, but close enough to enjoy all the excitement.

Spacious, modern, clean. Very comfy big bed with lovely crisp bed linens. Quiet, despite proximity to SH6.  The free 6pm wine tasting for guests was one of the best we have done... Florian was very entertaining and knowledgeable. Dinner good, with many excellent wines available

Lovely setting out of town. We were lucky to have a perfect late summer evening sitting outside. Food was excellent especially recommend the antipasti plater. Great selection of wine and much cheaper than in a Queenstown restaurant. Highly recommend

Stayed here as a little treat at the end of our trip to NZ. The place far exceeded expectations - the photos don't do it justice. Lovely setting, huge room, great breakfasts and an excellent wine tasting session was included. The staff were all really friendly and helpful. All

We stayed here for two nights and loved every minute at Kinross Cottages. We were happy to be staying in such a beautiful, peaceful place, yet could drive about 20 minutes and be in busy Queenstown. Our room was spacious and comfortable. It overlooked the vineyards with

Hi Ellen, We would love to have you back again to Kinross! Thanks for your wonderful review. We love hearing how special our staff made your experience too, we will be sure to tell Paula. We are so pleased to know you have found our hidden gem in the Vineyards, but close enough to Queenstown to enjoy all this region has to offer. See you next time!

Hello Mayfad, Thank you for your question :) We work with all of the companies that can take you to Milford for the day :D We are 20 mins from the closest meeting point for these trips. If you contact our admin team, we can point you in the right direction. Have a great day

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
