“One night of luxury”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

We stayed one night just before Christmas. It is a superb hotel! We should've stayed longer to get a broader experience of all the amenities but it just means we have to go back there! The rooms are superb and the food in the restaurant was perfect.

The hotel is a little out of the way but that only enhances the peace and quiet.

We had a wonderful time at Harvey's Point. The staff are all exceptional, without doubt, particularly Nancy and Orhan in the restaurant. The live shows at the hotel are so well done and Eugene is amazing, a wonderful voice and lovely, friendly personality. Deidre and Marc, the owners, could not be friendlier and more welcoming. I do not know of any other hotel owners who take the guests into their own private space.. supply a hot toddy and great craic. The rooms are luxurious and very well appointed. Nothing is too much trouble at this beautiful hotel.

If you want quality, comfort, good food and a pampering experience, Harvey's Point is the hotel to go to. We enjoyed a lovely short break in beautiful peaceful surroundings, just what we needed at the time. The room and bathroom were just pure luxury and so quiet and the staff were very cheerful, and we were met with a really friendly and helpful concierge. Hope to go back next year.

The weekend of the 14/15 December 2012 we visited Donegal for a wedding and had a wonderful time in Harveys Point Hotel - The rooms, the food and the friendlyness of the staff was of the highest quality/standard. We also enjoyed the excellent entertainment of the cabaret,great performers and great food - more than you can eat. My wife and I will be back again to visit Donegal and to stay at Harveys Piont Hotel. Frank & Mary Kelly

Our whole experience at Harvey's Point was amazing. The staff, the food, the room, the grounds....it was all 5 star service. It was so peaceful and relaxing there, possible the nicest hotel I have ever stayed in. Karen

Stayed in an Executive Suite, which was very reasonable, and I can't say enough good things about it. It was gorgeous and had every amenity possible. The bed was unbelievably comfortable and the bath was enormous.
Was here for a wedding and it could not have been more perfect. The service was wonderful and the food was out of this world - so much choice and everything delicious.
I would come again for the breakfast alone! Again so much choice and everything delicious.
We were really late checking out but we were never rushed. Staff could not have been nicer and more helpful.
Cannot wait to go back!
