“Fantastic Setting, Superb food.. Top Class!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2010

Spent a weekend at Harvey's Point at a wedding and I must say the hotel is top class and the staff just go out of their way to help you. We were blessed with gorgeous weather which made the stay all the more enjoyable.

The atmosphere in the bar is excellent and the food in both the restaurant and bar is superb. Our room was half the size of our own home and was fantastically equipped.

All in all we had a superb time and I would have no hesitation in recommending Harvey's Point certainly one of the top 3 hotels I've stayed in Ireland

Great stay in Harveys point from the start to finish. All staff very friendly and all spoke to you (In the bar for dinner and at breakfast). Brendan the porter was very friendly, and showed us round the room which was upgraded to Premium.
Room very spacious and superb. Great scenery on grounds and overlooking the lough. Great location where we got engaged :-)

We recently spent 3 days in this hotel and ,as usual, the experience was wonderful.
The staff were excellent and very helpful, even allowing me to use the office printer to print out my boarding cards for my flight home.
The breakfasts were superb and the Wednesday caberet show just rounded off my 3 days nicely.
The hugh executive rooms were out of this world for comfort and spaciousness.
We shall certainly be back.

I have been to quite a few hotels around the world and the bedrooms in this hotel are definately among the best. The location on Lake Eske is absolutely beautiful. The surrounding area is very scenic and great for sightseeing. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and cannot understand why it is only 4 star and not 5 star.

We appreciate your lovely comments about Harvey’s Point. Thanks to our lovely setting, Harvey’s Point is a destination in itself or a great base for touring the beautiful county of Donegal. As a family run business, we set our standards to five star level so as to exceed expectations as a four star property.

We arrived at Harvey's Point with our Labrador dog and were quickly made to feel welcome. The room was very spacious and had twin beds, one of which the dog immediately adopted as it's own. The food and room service were excellent. The Hotel, although sited on the shore of lough Eske in quiet countryside, is only a few minutes drive to Donegal town and less than half an hour to the beautiful beaches of the Donegal coast.
