Reviewed 18 April 2014

Just back from a two night break which wasn't long enough. The staff are excellent, great training is evident and the friendliness and helpfulness of each staff member is just right and not intrusive.
The size of the rooms was a lovely surprise....big! We had a lakeshore suite which was ideal with our dog. We would have loved to have been able to sit for an after dinner drink with our dog as we had felt guilty having been in the restaurant for so long partaking of their sumptuous food & leaving him in the room on his own but we totally understand they aren't allowed. It's just it forced us back to our room earlier purely out of guilt for leaving the dog! That said returning to the room was a lovely luxury and the balcony was beautiful to sit outside on,
We feel so relaxed after our stay yet we did a lot of driving during the day sight seeing and really can't wait to return for hopefully a longer stay.

Room Tip: Chose a lakeshore if you want an outside space but you lose a little on bedroom size. Otherwise roo...

I had arranged to propose to my partner on the banks of Lough Eske and Harvey's Point seemed the perfect setting for our stay at this beautiful location. The team at Harvey's Point went beyond the call of duty to ensure that we had an experience bespoke to our wants. We had a wonderful and relaxing time and are now engaged to be married. I would thoroughly recommend Harvey's Point to anyone who is looking to have a break from a busy lifestyle for a more peaceful and serine environment and I would like to thank the staff once again as it was the staff who made us feel so comfortable and welcome.

Room Tip: Although there are little leisure facilities, this is an ideal location for walks and for generally...

We have just returned from yet another superb few days at Harvey's Point, where we have been fortunate enough to stay on many occasions.
The hotel is in a simply magnificent location on the shore of Lough Eske with the Blue Stack Mountains as the backdrop and is the ideal place from which to explore the beauty of County Donegal while only a few kilometres from Donegal town.
Harvey's Point offers all that is best in a truly luxurious hotel. The bedrooms are in fact suites and are certainly the most beautifully furnished and comfortable we have ever experienced.
Dining is both a pleasure and an experience, the food being of a very high standard, always interesting and varied and beautifully presented and served. The wine list has clearly been very carefully chosen with a lovely balance of wines all of which are sensibly priced, unlike so many hotels in which the quality of the wine bears little if any relationship to their price.
However, the most outstanding feature of this superb hotel is the staff. They are quite the most efficient and attentive team you could find and it is clear that they are very carefully selected to ensure that the highest standards are maintained, but always with good humour and genuine friendliness.
The summer cabaret should not be missed--an evening of excellent entertainment whilst enjoying a lovely meal.
We are already looking forward to our next visit.
