Our close friends selected Harvey's Point for their gay wedding in September. What a place and boy did they pull out all the stops. From checkin to checkout the experience was something else, fantastic staff who were all attentive and on hand willing to help. The setting is something else with Donegal town only being down the road. The grand...

The location of this hotel is simply stunning. Best Sunday lunch in Donegal. Staff are friendly, professional and charming. We have been visiting HP for many years (once travelling all the way from London for a family celebration) and it never fails to delight us.

We spent two nights at Harvey's point in a huge suite overlooking the lake. The antiques and artwork were reminisant of my family home, and everything was done with every detail in mind. Their tea delivery to our room was very fast and the staff was extremely friendly. Mealtimes were spectacular and the dining room was run perfectly.

Lodge type room with good amenities and view. Lovely restaurant and bar. Staff very friendly. Can't check in till 4pm, don't arive early as there is nothing to do. Probably needs a little modernising in rooms as chairs and sofas a little tierd and out of date. Very good food in restaurant.

We stayed in the Penthouse. It was the most relaxing and comfortable stay in any hotel we have visited. The Penthouse is amazing! The food in Harveys Point is delicious. We received such a warm welcome on arrival and both the restaurant and bar staff are so friendly and attentive. We will definitely be returning to Harveys Point. Thank you.
