Four of us stayed at harrigans for one night. It was very convenient, great to have the bar for a few drinks before we went out for dinner. We had a fantastic lunch on arrival in the pub and the following morning we went to Enzo just up the road for breakfast which was expensive but with every penny. Harrigans... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment on the hotel grounds. Really great room, 2 bathrooms, full kitchen and laundry. Walk to pub for dinner. Great food, fun hotel. Gaming room has poker machines, which we enjoyed playing while having a few drinks.

Our family all stayed at Harrigans for a wedding. It was an ideal location to all meet the night before and night of the wedding. It was right next door to the Hunter Gardens where the chapel and reception were located. The hotel gave meal options, drinks and space for us to get together and catch up. The rooms were... More

Stayed just one night with friends visiting from NZ. We had a 2 bedroom apartment (501), a quiet location with a rural aspect. Whilst the most remote room from the hotel facilities it has the advantage of being away from the hustle and bustle of the hotel (understand that live music played on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings). So if... More

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

I agree with previous posts, the music was too loud to talk over but it was a great atmosphere. Meals okay but overpriced for what we got. Staff... More

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! We are very spoilt with the wildlife outside of our rooms, generally early morning or late afternoon... More
