      Good kinda remote and quite area which is just as I required (especially when one lives in London!!). Great place just to get away from it all and relax.

      I love the setting of the hotel; its clean and friendly and the bar has great food and a wee buzz!

      I liked the proximity to the beach.The check in staff and the cleaning staff were friendly.

      The hot water tap in the family room did not work and so the four of us could not have a shower.When checking out I reported this and was told that everyone else was able to work this tap. This was followed by a call to the kitchen to ask if they had had hot water.When they replied that they had the lady said to me "See".I left feeling that I had been treated rather shabbily.I liked The Downings but I shall never return to this hotel!

      The hotel was advertised as having a pool/gym etc. when I enquired as to where it was it was in fact the local leisure centre a mile away! The food was very disappointing.

      We were a bit disappointed with the overall experience, mostly because from the other reviews, we were really expecting a fabulous place but, in reality, it's just average. The reception is ok, clean but a bit too dark. The Bar/Restaurant it's fine and clean but nothing special and the food it's just ok, nothing special at all. The room is basic, but spacious and with tea and chocolates and a tv. The carpet was not very clean, the beddings were old or, I believe, not of very good quality. The bed itself was comfortable, as were the pillows. The location is beautiful but there is nothing to do, I would encourage young couples to choose somewhere else to stay. Nevertheless,the staff was very good, professional and welcoming.

      The coffee in the restaurant was of very poor quality.

      Each and every one of the staff at the Downings Bay was committed to making our stay a most enjoyable one. Facilities for play and babysitting services for the children in our group were excellent which added greatly to our enjoyment. We were given the additional facilities of washing and showering after the Donegal Marathon run we had entered, even though we returned after the official checking-out time, which was much appreciated by all.

      As a seasoned traveller, I genuinely found nothing I did not like about the hotel and have already since my return recommended a stay there to friends and family. I will undoubtedly return at the earlieast opportunity - sooner rather than later.

      Very comfortable, staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The facilities were excellent adn it was in one of my favourite locations in Donegal

      The lounge facilities in the reception area were not far enough away form the noise in the bar especially when there was entertainment.
