Historical Traveller Reviews of Harveys Point Country Hotel
Remarkable hotel in a beautiful settingfrom call_me_ty
outstanding hotel!from honest reviewer
A break to remember.from Rolos
We stayed in a Premium Suite and it was luxurious on a grand scale. I have stayed in some amazing hotels but have never been in a room this size before.
The only, not so positive, comment I would make would be in respect of the restaurant menu. I would not say we were plain eaters but we aren't big sea food fans. I would have loved to try the restaurant in the hotel but there wasn't enough variety to justify it for us.
I was last at Harvey's point in 2001 for a drink and was underwhelmed but the refurbishment was worth every penny, I would definately go back.
No children allowed at this hotel.from KMULL
However, we have since amended our policy so that all guests of any age are welcome with organized dining times in the restaurant
and baby sitting facilities available. It would be our pleasure to welcome you and your family back to Harvey’s Point.
Fantastic on all accountsfrom scof76
We decided to follow a sign for Harvey's point in town, I guess inspired by the name. What an inspiration! After a wild goose chase on tiny country lanes at night, we arrived in the car park of this splendid establishment.
Originally planning on staying on a cheap B&B, we turned round after asking at reception for their rates... but half discouraged by the drive back and half tempted by the 'still-outrageously-expensive-but-a-good-deal-nonetheless-on-dinner-and-B&B', we checked in.
What a treat that was! After quite a long walk to the lifts, the room was absolutely huge, with an entrance lobby, a bathroom the size of our upstairs at home with shower, jacuzzi bath et al. The bedroom itself was massive with views accross the lough below, a huge flat screen TV and bed as wide as long. Decadent luxury but oh so sweet!
We went down for dinner and took ages to decide on what to have, all the dishes on the menu sounding all very tempting. We ate like king and queen, drank like fools and went up to bed.
Annoyingly, being in the room we were, we slept terribly because of all the food and drink consumed.. what a shame :)
Anyway, that didn't stop us from enjoying the large and very well furnished breakfast buffet in the morning.
To conclude, top marks to Harvey's Point, I hope we'll be back in the not-to-near future!!
Fantastic Proposalfrom KarenandPhil
It was a truly special occasion and we would love to go back.
Luxurious, but of concern to usfrom Cuchallain
Since our initial visit, Harvey's Point has expanded to a 3-story (2-story in IRL) hotel with very generous accomodations. We went there expecting to get a room with a king-sized bed and small bath, but were greeeted with a room more than triple the size of what we had before.
The room was grand, as was the restaurant. Our concern is fire safety.
The hotel is very isolated, yet the owners neglected to install fire sprinklers to protect their guests. Fire sprinklers are a feature of modern hotels throughot the world, and we were surprised that Harvey's Point built a world-class hotel with third-world fire protection. We will stay there again, but only if we get a room in the old wing where we are on the ground floor with direct access to the outside.

Unabashed luxuryfrom Hyperion24
But without good staff and service the surroundings would count for nothing. We were not disappointed. Every single member of staff without exception was charming, courteous, and went the extra mile to ensure the comfort and wellbeing of the guest. The restaurant was excellent and food and service first class.
I am already planning our next trip to this haven of wellbeing!
Perfect to just Chill outfrom tarap
As for the food:
New Year's I was very disappointed. It was just average, but I guess you need to expect that from large scale catering.
When we went back for a long weekend and ate in the regular restaurant with the set dinner it was GORGEOUS! Everthing was beautifully presented and was of the highest quality. The breakfast was also one of the best hotel breakfasts I ever had ( the wheaten bread is espcially good). We also had a snack lunch in the bar and it is definately good value for money. If you order the smoked salmon plate, split it with someone..it was large!
All in all, if you need a place to go to just chill out and become human again..go to Harvey's
