“Seriously luxury”
Reviewed February 7, 2010

Our company is one of the sponsors of the Queenstown Winter Festival and I was lucky enough to be part of the team on the ground during the festival staying at Commonage Villas.

It was a fantastic location (overlooking the town and lake) for us to be based from during the week. It is an easy 5 minute walk to get into the township although a bit if hike back up (the hills around there are steep)!

The rooms and amenities were fantastic. We converted the large dining area into our work space and each had our own massive bedroom / en-suite. Wireless broadband internet meant it was work as usual.

The kitchen is well set up with everything you could ever want, admittedly we ate most of our evening meals out so didn't get to make full use of it.

I took my partner and was lucky enough to have the master bedroom on the top floor. She spent a lot of time enjoying the huge bath! The views were fantastic and would have to be the best place for watching the festival fireworks.

It did seem a little strange parking our SUV in a carpeted heated garage after a day up the ski field.

I hope we are staying there again this year!

Dear Pppops,
Thank you so much for your very positive review. Yes our villas work well for being used as a 'board room with a view'. We are so glad you all enjoyed your stay with us and we look forward to welcoming you back next time! Best wishes, from the team at Commonage Villas

Reviewed September 8, 2008

We stayed at 8 The Commonage for 3 nights in August 2008 ( 3 bed villa with accom for maybe 5/6 people). The views were outstanding and the accomodation to a very high standard indeed. The staff were great. They booked a trip for us, helped us to order a dinner in 1 night as well as giving good restaurant recommendations for the other 2 nights. They were very responsive and always enthusiastic.

Everyone was happy and there were only compliments from my 3 teenage daughters on the amenities/facilities and comfort. The only slight negative would be that although it is potentially walking distance into town, it would be a pretty steep walk back, so you are trading that for the views.

Having never been before, Queenstown lived up to its billing. We went skiing at Cardrona and made it to Milford Sound. The weather was perfect (we were lucky!)

It was undoubtedly an expensive stay, but I thought it ended up being reasonable value for money.
