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!
