We just landed back last night and from start to finish this one night stay was just truly exceptional from the moment you walk through the door until you leave. Ive never met so attentive staff in my life and we travel alot and this gem is right on our door step to never have experienced it. On us being together 5 years we got a complimentary upgrade to an executive suite and lets just say these rooms have everything and as a special treat they had made swans on the bed out of towels surrounded by rose petals in the shape of a heart. This theme continued in the HUGE bathroom with the jacuzzi surrounded with rose petals and candles which was so romantic and they have his and her sinks.........!!! A truly remarkable warm welcome will await you at this hotel and this is a dining experience like no other from the 5 course meal in the evening to the freshly cooked breakfast in the morning. I could go on forever on how great this stay was but like all good things they must come to and end :( WE WILL BE BACK!!!

Room Tip: From what we have seen this place doesnt have any bad rooms. Need I say anymore :)

I stayed in Harvey's Point to attend a friends wedding, I had been advised by many people prior to my stay that it was a magical place, However it exceeded every expectation, from rooms fit for a king to world class food and exceptionally helpful and friendly staff, It is the place to stay and having travelled around the world, I didnt expect the best Hotel to be on my doorstep.

I would highly recommend it to everyone, as it would be your loss for not staying here, Thanks Harvey's point for a magnificent stay

I have stayed in many hotels and this one has now become my #1
From the moment we arrived until we departed we were treated like royalty.
We attended a wedding during our stay, and could not recommend it high enough for weddings.
The price is a little steep for a last minute getaway, but so worth saving for. I can't wait to return

We visited Harveys Point on a trip over to Ireland from Australia many years ago before the new additions had been made. We loved in then and were determined to revisit during our holiday a few weeks ago. We were not disappointed. The new wing is fantastic, the rooms very tasteful and comfortable with everything you could possibly need. The dining was top class, service and ambience all excellent. Would love to return again.
