Beautiful Hotel in spectacular location but what really made it for me was the fantastic staff nothing was a problem very genuine sincere people doing a great job for your property!

Exceptionally friendly and courteous at all times and certainly appear to love working at Harvey's Point as this comes across in their attitude to everything.

I look forward to my next visit hopefully soon!

This hotel is of first class standard without feeling ostentatious. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The room was the most luxurious I've ever had the pleasure of staying in. The home made cookies and caffetiere coffee located in the room was a pleasant surprise. The location, on the shores of Lough Eske and at the foot of the Blue Stack mountains, is stunning. I would highly recommend this hotel for business or pleasure!

We had a wonderful few days at Harvey's Point. The room was fabulously spacious and luxurious. The staff in all areas of the hotel were friendly. The food in the restaurant was exceptional and the breakfast provided all you could want to set you up for the day ahead! We will definitely be returning for a Winter Break.

We had a two night stay 26th and 27th May. This was our first visit to Harvey's Point. Our beautiful two days started with an unexpected upgrade to a Delux room which was stunning. We were there for a relaxing two days which we were able to get with the quietness and beauty of Lough Eske. We were extremely lucky with the weather and were able to while away the hours sitting on the patio of the bar overlooking the lake. The food was lovely and as I have a food allergy (coeliac) I'm not always catered for but this was not the case at Harvey's Point. At breakfast there was a dedicated section for gluten free. On the first morning the chef made me fresh gluten free pancakes and on the second morning gluten free sausages. On both occasions and on the evening meal on the Tuesday our server was Nancy who was extremely helpful, friendly and nothing was too much trouble for her. The staff overall were excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our first stay at Harvey's Point and intend that it will not be our last.

Harvey's Point knows what is important for guests. They care about you. Rooms are of the highest standards which are nice to come back to after a day of being out and about. Breakfast a highlight. Get the map out and find this haven.
