“"Welcome to heaven "”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

.... the words of welcome to us on our arrival to Harveys Point and boy were they true ! From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty and no stone unturned with regards to the warmest of welcomes , hospitality , luxurious surroundings , first class dining and kind offers of fresh cool water and fresh fruit to help us on our journey home. We have travelled the world and there is nowhere to compare to the experience that Harveys Point can offer. Thank you again to all the staff who take time to go well beyond the call of duty to make your stay a trip to remember. We also had a fabulous night at the Cabaret , 3 generations in our case and we all really enjoyed the show which had a great programme for all ages. We will be back soon. Thank you.

This is by far the best hotel I have ever stayed in. We stayed in a deluxe room in the main hotel building. It was so much better than I ever expected it to be, I knew it would be good but it was unreal.
The room was huge with a massive bathroom and everything was finished to a extremely high standard. It have everything you would ever need and more.
We were there for a wedding and I would also say it was the best wedding venue I have been to. The food is class and the service and staff are excellent. The way they do things leaves a lasting impression and I would highly recommend this hotel for a wedding.
It has it all, friendly down to earth staff, great food, fantastic rooms, great scenery.

We stayed in Harvey's Point on 10th July 2013 and it was a most memorable visit. The accomodation, the food and the hospitality we received were truly excellent. While it is not cheap we felt we got excellent value for money and we hope to return with friends or family in the future. Anybody thinking of staying in this part of Donegal should definitely treat themselves and stay here!

We booked the 2 night midweek cabaret deal and were so impressed we asked to extend for another couple of nights. I cannot recommend Harvey's Point highly enough, from the standard of rooms to the lovely attitude of all the staff, from the food to the location and on this visit the perfect weather, it was a truly relaxing special break. Many thanks to everyone involved, can't wait to return.

Just back from 2 night stay at Harvey's Point. Second time visiting the hotel and on each occasion the staff have been more than welcoming, helpful and friendly. Quality of food was excellent especially now with the addition of the Seafood Bar and Grill. An extensive breakfast buffet was laid on each morning with many options to choose from and our room was once again pure luxury.
Disappointed I didn’t get to see ‘Harvey’ the resident goose this time round!
Thanks again
Dermot

We visited this hotel for a wedding which was a wedding all couples would dream of having but never achieve but in this case this lucky couple did. The hotel is fabulous, the garden outside the hotel which the lake runs up to was like a scene from a real romantic movie and this is where the wedding took place - it was simple, romantic and magical. The accomodation was out of this world -too bad we didn't get to appreciate it enough-it would be lovely to return and take things at a slower pace. The only disappointing thing was the service of the food for the wedding dinner-it was very slow, our table didn't receive any wine like other tables so we had to request it and other tables were late receiving some of their food - like gravy when all their meat was gone!! It was obvious they like to put on a show when serving the food to the top table but it would be in their favour to pay more attention to all the guest's tables who could have done with more attention. The dinner was fine - i just thought for a hotel of this standard that I would come away raving about the food but I haven't. As beautiful as it is there, unfortunately in the evening the midgets are very plentiful so come prepared especially if you plan on going for a stroll down to the water. All in all we had a weekend we will never forget and wish we could have again another time should we be so lucky.

Room Tip: Plan to spend alot of time in your room coz they're to die for.
