“Beautiful location,Beautiful bedrooms,Beautiful place”
Reviewed October 7, 2010

I have been to quite a few hotels around the world and the bedrooms in this hotel are definately among the best. The location on Lake Eske is absolutely beautiful. The surrounding area is very scenic and great for sightseeing. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and cannot understand why it is only 4 star and not 5 star.

We appreciate your lovely comments about Harvey’s Point. Thanks to our lovely setting, Harvey’s Point is a destination in itself or a great base for touring the beautiful county of Donegal. As a family run business, we set our standards to five star level so as to exceed expectations as a four star property.

We arrived at Harvey's Point with our Labrador dog and were quickly made to feel welcome. The room was very spacious and had twin beds, one of which the dog immediately adopted as it's own. The food and room service were excellent. The Hotel, although sited on the shore of lough Eske in quiet countryside, is only a few minutes drive to Donegal town and less than half an hour to the beautiful beaches of the Donegal coast.

Staff were very friendly and helpful-they couldn't do enough for us. Our room was very spacious with two large comfortable double beds and a sitting area to watch television. The bathroom was massive with a whirlpool bath that could fit a family! Harvey's point has a beautiful location on the shore of Lough Eske and we where able to walk along the waters edge with the children. I especially enjoyed the food and fine wine-breakfast was delicious with so much choice. I have never had a fruit smoothie as part of my breakfast in any hotel I have ever stayed in! The only criticism that I could have was that the jets in our whirlpool bath didnt seem to be working, although if we had have mentioned this to any staff I'm sure it would have been sorted. If you are looking for a really relaxing break in heavenly surroundings-this is the one!

My husband and i have just returned from a short stay to celebrate our wedding anniversary and we were amazed by how lovely this hotel is.
The staff were so nice and friendly and couldnt do enough to make us feel welcome.
Our room was an executive which is 75m2, it was huge and spotlessly clean. The room also had a little kitchenette area which was great as we were travelling with our 6 month old daughter.
The views from the bar and dining room out over the lake are breathtaking, it is just the perfect place for relaxing and taking it easy.
Breakfast was lovely, a huge variety of hot & cold food and wonderful service.
We loved our stay and have already decided that we will be returning for our next wedding anniversary.
