Spent another lovely Christmas at Harvey's Point. Room was large and well furnished with every comfort. Always a warm welcome from Deidre and her staff. Food superb. The scenery is beautiful and there are plenty of enjoyable walks around Loch Eske.

Absolutely loved this hotel. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome. The staff are so friendly. Rooms amazing! (And we had one of the most basic in the hotel). Food astonishing. Dinner was fabulous and breakfast was marvellous. I would heartily recommend this hotel and hope to be back again.

It's hard to review a hotel that has already won so many accolades.
