I spent the last three days at Donegal House it was for a family wedding, so the whole complex was booked out. The services we received was very good. The view of the mountains and the gardens attached are absolutely outstanding. The rooms are very basic, with no fridge, which we found a problem. The cost is quite expenisve for the basic room. The room I had, had a double bed and a single bed, with ensuite bathroom, tv and no fridge. The room a friend had, was a double bed, ensuite bathroom, and no tv or fridge, yet the price was the same. I was very dissapointed in the owner of the lodge, who harassed a few of the single ladies the whole time they were there. Very uncomfortable, and one lady who had her husband pass away 3x weeks ago, which he was aware of was totally harassed to the point that she decided she did not want to stay, but drive back to Christchurch after the wedding. This is totally unprofessional from a person in his position. In fact left a lot to be desired.
