I spent two nights in Harvey's Point last week and it has to be the best location I have ever stayed in. The food was excellent but sometimes the staff seemed to be under pressure so service was slow from time to time. If hot tea at breakfast is one your priorites - this is the place for you. So many hotels provide lukewarm tea but not here! Piping hot and very good.
I was meeting up with an old friend who was staying in the Courtyard so I chose that location as well. This is where you need to prioritise before booking. The Courtyard en-suite bathrooms are very basic - 1980s style -overdue modernisation and at best could be described as somewhere between 2 and 3 star. These rooms are somewhat old-fashioned as well but could be described as "quaint". The mattresses are quite thin and not the most comfortable I have slept on. BUT - the location right beside the lake is fantastic - particularly if the weather is good.
The bedrooms in the main hotel are more luxurious and the bathrooms more modern - decide which you would prefer before booking
