Our family (two teenagers and Grandma in one room, husband and wife in another) spent one night at Harvey's Point, all were thoroughly delighted! The rooms are spacious, quiet, and comfortable. The service is excellent. The food is great. Highly recommended.

Harvey's point is a magnificent hotel situated in a breathtaking location. The bedrooms are out of this world & can't be compared to anywhere else as they are in a league of their own. Had a wonderful stay with my husband. Beautiful surroundings, gorgeous food & fantastic service. I highly recommend this hotel & will definitely return

A fantastic hotel. Brilliant food. Staff really cared for the guests. Room was sensational. A great hotel to visit if you want to relax, do nothing and just get pampered. Cookery demonstration was a highlight, as was wine tasting. Such an effort from all concerned to make our stay valuable.

My husband and I recently stayed at Harveys point hotel. To describe the place as luxurious doesn't give it justice. Our room was bigger than my home. It was like something from a movie.
