My brother held his wedding reception in Harvey's Point and I attended with my family (including 3 young children). The reception we received whilst even checking in was so respectful and courteous and that treatment continued throughout our stay. We stayed in an executive suite which was stunning. I loved the hotel and the food really was a dining experience. Fabulous.

I can't praise this hotel more highly, we have stayed here a few times now and can never tire of it - from the ever friendly staff, the superb food, to the simply luxurious rooms. It is the perfect place for a relaxing break or a special occasion. If you are thinking of staying somewhere in this area don't look anywhere else, this is the perfect place. Even has dog friendly rooms.
My favourite part has to be the fantastic double jacuzzi bath within our gigantic bathroom including the classical music and the candles. Pure Bliss! The only disappointing part was having to check out.

Couple stayed in executive room. Bedroom decor and carpets a bit tired No air conditioning was a surprise Room this size needs some for of ventilation. Windows that open too small and distant from bed area to be of any help Room had a slightly stale smell which improved when we operated fan supplied but at the expense of the noise. Bathroom was large and impressive and the bed itself was exceptionally comfortable.We ate in the wine bar but were not happy with the fare. My wife ordered a Harvey burger as her main. She ate less than a third of it despite being very hungry. The quality of the mince was really poor with a sour after taste. I tried it myself and have to agree. Definitely the worst dish eaten ( or not ) in a long time . My main was ok but the deserts were also sub standard. Breakfast the next morning on the other hand was first class. Overall a mixed bag but the issues of food quality including service allied with an absence of fresh air in the bedrooms need to be looked at.

Me, my mum and dad, my brother and sister, (they were between the ages of 5 and 9), my grand-parents and my uncle and his wife all stayed here for 2 nights and had a perfect time! We came to the hotel to celebrate my grand-parents wedding anniversary. the staff were all very helpful. the food was amazing, though not the type of food for children though it was ideal for our family as we are all quite adventurous with our food! the pool and leisure centre were good too! though the best feature of our trip were the rooms! the whole family loved our rooms! the one my family had was very spacious and had a good tv and view in it! the bathroom was huge and me and my sister spent nearly the whole time in it because you could play music in it and there was candles beside the big bath! but we really loved the mirror in the bathroom because it was like one of those mirrors in dressing rooms for celebrities, with the circular lights around it! though this holiday was deer... it was worth it!

Room Tip: i would chose the more expensive room to get the same kind of features we got!

An excellent choice to celebrate the Mother-in-law's 90th Birthday at the cabaret. Again a five star welcome with five star service. Very highly recommended.
