Gorgeous place to stay and lovely, helpful and friendly front of house team! This is the only place I have stayed at that I would ever make a point of rebooking. Typically we just go wherever is available however it is well worth the short drive out of QT, the scenery, ambience and hospitality.

The country feel after finishing a hike and not being ready to go to the city.

Great stay away from holiday madness

We had a brilliant stay at Kinross in the winter. Staff were very friendly, buffet breakfast was great and room was spacious and cosy. Being 'out in the country' and equidistant from the ski fields was great for us as we wanted to go to all of them. Everyday on the drive down from the hills we were relieved that we *didn't* have to join the queue of cars trying to get back into Queenstown / Wanaka, we just headed for Arrowtown instead, which is a great little town. Only comment to the owners would be: it would be great if breakfast started slightly earlier than 7.30am, for folks who are trying to get to the hill early.

Nice and cozy in the mountains.

Pros: Very nice setting. Clean and tidy.
Cons: Single beds are not sturdy and not that comfortable.
Location: A bit of travel required to go to Queenstown, but in return you have peace and quiet.
Nice place with friendly people. Great breakfast choices.
