My friend and I recently stayed here for one night. The hotel itself is fine, our twin room was spacious with a large bathroom. We had food in the bar which was lovely, but in sharp contrast the breakfast was disgusting - I had the "full Irish" which on that particular day consisted of really poor quality meat and mushrooms that you could bounce off a wall. The waiting staff were pleasant but, again, unfortunately I can't say the same for the staff at reception... Upon arrival, our greeting wasn't particulary warm, and when we were leaving we were not even asked "was everything okay" or "did you enjoy your stay?". The greeting upon check out was "checking out? Card or cash?" I waited to see if, at this point, we would be asked how our stay was but it didn't happen. When I got my receipt for payment I asked "are you on TripAdvisor?". The reply was "yes we are, why is there a problem?" At this stage, I was going to give my feedback but I felt I would have received a defensive response so I felt it better to say nothing at that moment. Being a person from Donegal myself, I am always very proud of how friendly and pleasant people from Donegal are - needless to say I was disappointed with the initial and final greetings at the Downings Bay.
