My 3rd trip to Harvey’s Point and still the best hotel experience ever. From the moment of walking in to the warm greeting of welcome, to every aspect of just a perfect break. Coupled with the chance to learn how to paint with the very enigmatic Conal, the whole 4 days was just perfect.. as well as the weather!! It always amazes me how Deirdre finds the time to come and say hello to all the guests at different times of any stay. That sort of customer service is priceless.
Here’s to my next stay at Harvey’s again, next time with husband Ken and Mac our cherished poodle, who also just loves Harvey’s Point!
