We had a real good room, quiet, comfortable and close to the ammenities as well. Evening meal and Breakfast was had here and both were excellent. Wide selection of spirits, beers and wines for the connoisseur. We took in the Hunter Valley Gardens as they are a pleasant stroll away. We will be back

A great experience in the Hunter was capped off by some excellent executive accommodation at the Harrigans Irish Hotel. My wife and I were late arrivals on Tuesday afternoon into Pokolbin and rang reception at the hotel to secure a room for two nights. Initially we were given a hotel room and by the time we arrived at reception to... More

Stayed on a friday night with family, hotel is well situated and the rooms are neat and well appointed, however, the hot water takes a while to warm up and alternates between very hot and icy cold which isn't very pleasant. The music is loud and probably stopped around 2am and then you get the noise from the people leaving... More

We stayed here for a girls 2 night break. We arrived Sunday afternoon while the band was still playing ( I believe they are only there friday, sat night and sunday arvo).

Hi Sue H, So glad to hear you enjoyed your midweek break with us. Midweek certainly is a great time to visit not only Harrigan's but alot of wineries in the area - as you are likely to have them all to yourself!

Nice executive 2 room with fireplace. Could sleep 4 people but in the loungeroom only 1 sofa to seat 2 people and a rigid cloth chair. Very uncomfortable. Same on the balcony, huge area but a tiny side table and 2 chairs in corner. Only one tv in one room. Paper thin walls, heard other room doors slamming and creaking... More

I booked 3 rooms for some friends and i. 1- 3 Bedroom apartment and 2-2 Bedroom apartments. The rooms were great and spacious! The noise from the pub didn't bother us as we were still awake by the time the pub closed or stopped playing music. We all enjoyed the rooms and had no issues with them. The 3 bedroom... More

This hotel has friendly staff and large rooms. However, it does get noisy! Our room backed the pub and we could hear the pub music very well. We were surprised our room was in this location considering how empty the entire hotel was on the Friday night (there were hardly any cars outside the rooms at night) so we could've... More
