“Perfect hotel for a getaway”
Reviewed April 6, 2011

My wife and I chose this hotel for a weekend break to celebrate our wedding anniversary. From the moment we arrived until we left we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is spotless clean, the staff very helpful and the food delicious. We received a compilmentary room upgrade to the penthouse suite which was pure opulence. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to every was an ideal place to stay.

Harveys Point is just out of this world from the moment you arrive onto the property. The staff are friendly polite and extremely helpful. Our room was unbelievable and the food first class. This was a return night stay following our wedding in Harveys two years ago and i cannot wait till we return again. The only downside was having to leave!

Just back from a weekend in this beautiful hotel,I have never stayed in such a beautiful room in my life!. The setting on lough Eske adds to the experience,the staff are all so helpful and friendly the breakfast and evening meal in the main dining room was delicious.The one complaint I have is the bar food we ate here on our first night the service was quite slow and the food arrived just warm(v small portion of chips with the fish) We didnt complain as we put it down to the fact the hotel had just reopened full time in the previous few days of our arrival.Overall our stay at Harveys Point hotel was absolutely memorable and cannot wait until we return.Fantastic !

We celebrated our wedding at Harveys Point in December 2010 and returned in March 2011 for a romantic weekend. Fantastic hotel, wonderful staff and delicious food. If ur looking for a 5 star wedding experience or romantic break Harveys Point has it all. We will most certainly return in the near future and cant recommend it highly enough. D&A

We had stayed at Harveys Point before and knew what to expect, and we certainly weren't disappointed. The staff cannot do enough to please, the rooms and food are out of this world. The breakfast is one of the best I have had, the Evening Meal was superb, with quality of produce very obvious. Can,t wait to return. Listen to Sean's tip fill the bath above the vent on Jacuzzi !!!!!

The weekend was a 25th wedding annerveresity present from our family. Being in Harvey's Point hotel was like being on a second honeymoon. from the minute we stepped into the hotel and untill we relucanctly left, we were treated with such care attention that I felt like I was the President of Ireland.We were very fortunite to have a Delux room at our disposal. I'm afraid that no other hotel will ever live up to our expectations of a good hotel.Ordinarly it would have been a little too expensive as a weekend break for us............however after experiencing terrific food,great service fantastic staff,a room to die for, great area for walks......what more can i say except that I am already starting to save a few euros so that I will be back.
