About Kinross Cottages
Boutique Hotel, Bistro & Cellar Door
Situated in the heart of Gibbston- Central Otago- the worlds most southern wine region.
The bistro has a cosy atmosphere with amazing food and exceptional service, I will be back
Great food & wine & location as well. Will come back definitely.
We celebrated our anniversary at Kinross - a restaurant we haven't yet been to. We live in Arrowtown and originally booked to eat there but our reservation fell through. I'm so glad we ventured out to Gibbston. Kinross Bistro was lovely. The food was really good and the matched wine went down well. Service was great and the atmosphere was relaxed and quiet. We will definitely come back in the Summer to try out the Wine Garden!
Wonderful as usual. Keep up the fantastic work. It’s very much appreciated:)
Amazing meal, awesome service. A great place for kids also. will definitely be returning and recommending to others :)
Nice atmosphere, good food - great venue for summer drinks, nibbles i'd say.
Food and staff are amazing!!!
Amazing location!! Super helpful staff! Beautiful!!
Thank you for hosting the Queenstown Rotary group, Everyone enjoyed the evening
Nice place, friendly staff and excellent food. Thank you for our nice stay. We had a great time.
We have just enjoyed a very pleasant evening at Kinross Bistro. Top service,food and atmosphere. Well done!,!!!
Awesome venue for a business meeting or just chilling out. See you again soon. David Moore
The location and the rooms are big pluses. The location is idyllic and the rooms well-equipped and spacious. The kitchenettes were very usable and the showers lovely. The service was good but not great and it would have been nice to hear a few more Kiwi voices. The Valentine’s meal was good, but not great. A better description would have saved me from having raw cod as a starter. The free glass of bubbly turned out to be a quarter glass too. Breakfast was nice but I’d have felt a bit cheated if I’d been paying full price for it. WiFi worked well but please don’t make me logon every time my iPad goes to sleep!
I escorted 14 guests from Australia today on a winery tour of friends. They were delighted with the wine tasting experience today at Kinross, Extremely well presented and most informative, The success of the wines spoke for themselves when they (almost all) ordered mixed cases to send home. Thank you for accommodating them so well. Kind regards Tracey Maclaren, private guide.
The wine selection and meal were delicious, yummy vegetarian option! Will definitely return.
Wonderful thank you. Our second visit and did not fail to impress again. Kind, thoughtful staff dealt with my awkward dietaries with aplomb. We'll be back again :)
Lovely su my evening at Kinross Bistro.. Food and wine very good.. Great friendly service. Will be back!
Great food as always, and lovely service even though we arrived late for our booking and with extra people. Thankyou!
We had a lovely evening. Thoroughly enjoyed our wine tasting - all 5 wines tasted were good quality, and appreciated the knowledge of Liam. Dinner was delicious with excellent service. Will return again.

Beautiful setting. Great wine, view and staff. The lamb main and fish main, were PURE HEAVEN. Thankyou
