I could rave about this hotel all day. Five star hotel, lets say Five star plus plus plus plus.............
I didnt want to leave! Excellent staff, Excellent location, Excellent accommodation, Excellent Food. The staff made our party feel so welcome and treated every guest like royalty. We arrived at the hotel and were immediately shown personnally by a member of staff to our luxurious suite, she made sure we knew where everything was, how everything worked, we felt totally at home from the start. The staff's attention to detail with every guest ensures your stay is perfect. The Management and staff of harveys point hotel have definitely got it right, such a pleasureable place to stay. I will return to this hotel the first chance I get.

Room Tip: Any room will do, they are all excellent!!!!

From the moment we arrived the staff made us feel most welcome.
Special mention for Maria in the restaurant who was excellent. We really enjoyed both of our evenings in the gourmet restaurant.
Well done to all the staff. We will return.

We truely enjoyed our stay at Harvey's Point Hotel. Set on the stunning Lough Eske, the hotel is warm and elegant with a very inviting friendly atmosphere from beginning to end.

Within an hour of arriving we were asked was everything okay with our room. We received a very warm and hospitable welcome with the porter bringing bags to our room followed by a tour of our huge Premium Room.

We kindly got a free upgrade and a late check out which was greatly appreciated. The staff are extremely accomdating.

We found all staff in lounge, dining room and bar to be extremely professional and accommodating, but above all so warm and friendly. Its nice to stay in a hotel where people remember you at reception. This is not so common anymore, so it is lovely to see.

The room was spotless, beautiful and comfortable. It interior was classic and gorgeous. We stayed in one of the Premium Rooms and it was similar to an apartment. Extremly large room with Four poster bed,mini bar,jazucci and a sitting room and separate changing area. It was similar to staying in a large apartment. Bed could sleep 7. It was pure luxury.

The food was exceptional. Bar food was gorgeous and dining room food was beautiful! Classic dinning with professional friendly staff willing to accomadate you in any way possible. Ordered room service for breakfast and it was gorgeous!! The view out on the helicopter pad and lake is stunning! Followed by a mountain drive. Made it all worthwhile.

We couldn't have asked for a better weekend and we look forward to returning. Really was very memorable.

Room Tip: All the rooms are stunning. Executive and deluxe rooms are large. Photos do it not justice, the room...

Stayed in Harvey's point for 1night and our stay was brilliant. Staff were very helpful and accommodating overall, porter brought bags up to room and gave us a personal tour of our massive room! Was a lovely personal touch. I measured the room&it was 24foot absolutely massive!! Room was lovely, bed was massive, Jacuzzi bath so fab!
We ate in the bar for our dinner&the food was great. Breakfast in the morning was lovely especially seeing the view of the lake as we had arrived the night before in the dark.
Would def recommend a stay here, we will definitely be back&I can't wait!!

I was a guest at a wedding reception at this Hotel. The entire experience was one of outstanding quality. The staff could not have done enough for me, the rooms are finished to perfection and the food was outstanding. This hotel is one of the best I have ever stayed in. In the morning you can have a relaxing breakfast whilst watching the swans on the lake, totally breathtaking. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel for a peaceful get away.

Room Tip: All rooms are finished to the same standard.
