Amazing stylish lodge with phenomenal views in a great location, only surpassed by the super friendly, efficient and relaxed staff Amelia and Sherea!! Congratulations to Antonio who we really enjoyed meeting and "chewing the fat'!. We will be back.
Donkey Bay Inn is exactly as it looks on the website, incredible views, art, decor, style and definitely lots of surprises like being dropped to dinner in a classic car! Amazing hospitality from Amelia and Shereya - we didn't want to leave! We will definitely be back and would love to be able to share this hidden gem with friends and whanau. Awesome to meet Antonio as well - what incredible vision!
There plenty of surprises waiting for anyone lucky enough to stay at this hidden gem, so close to Russell, yet completely isolated and off-the-grid. Any fantastic hotel needs fantastic hosts and Amelia, Sharia, Anita, Antonio and everyone were just lovely. (Forgive my spelling if I got some wrong). Really appreciate the flexibility to bring guests in for brekkie 3 days running. And our chauffeurs (including Alan) - just superb. Many thanks, Gavin&Lynne
From the incredible curated interior, the view and the superb hospitality its hard to find a better hotel anywhere. Very easy to feel at home and relax within minutes of arriving. Thanks for a lovely stay.
There is a reason why all the reviews are 5 star and that is because Donkey Bay Inn is perfect. We have stayed in many interesting, welcoming and excellent places, this was one of the best, probably the best. Amelia, Antonio and the team at Donkey Bay Inn make you feel at home from the moment you arrive until the sad moment when you have to leave. Everything about the location and the accomodation is beautiful. It is a special place to stay and lucky for us not too far away, we were thinking about when we can next stay after being there for less than a day. I get suspicious of reviews that sound too perfect but it really is that good.
