“Fun night out in the Hunter!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

Our first night out in Harrigans and it was great! Busy, with a fun atmosphere, great DJ/Band, friendly waiters and unpretentious bouncers. Def recommend this pub for a fun night out in the Hunter. Courtesy bus at the end of the night into Cessnock is a winner - thanks.

Great spot to have all wedding guests stay. Lots of entertainment and great food and superb location. The night before the wedding we had over 60 family and friends come together over a meal. This was an ideal location to do this at.

Our room doubled as the dressing room for bride and bridesmaids what a fantastic location to have the photos taken.

This is an excellent place to stay in the Hunter Valley. I was a but dubious but friends had organised our accommodation for our getaway in the Hunter Valley, so I went with the flow. I was very surprised. The accommodation was great. The room was large with a lovely veranda & a wonderful bathroom. The curtains over the windows completely blocked out the morning light, which was fantastic as it enabled me to sleep in, something I rarely do. The meals at the Pub were great as well, particularly the salads & the wonderful breakfasts. I don't think I would stay anywhere else when next visiting the Hunter Valley.

Room Tip: We were on the west side Rooms 202 - 205. All were great.

Each room comes with earplugs due to the noise levels from live music! I loved it as I love a good night on the dance floor. Rooms are spacious and clean. Pretty pricey but I think most of the hunter besides cessnock is over priced regarding accommodation.

I took my parents to hunter valley for a visit and we chose harrigans Irish pub as our stay. Our room was quite big and we had 2 king size beds. Bathroom is pretty clean and it had a spa bath as well. This location is really ideal coz every attraction is close by. Also they serve good food at the pub as well

My husband and I stayed here for one night as part of a week here for our first wedding anniversary. We stayed in a deluxe suite and it was a great size with a separate bedroom, great sized bathroom with a spa and a little outdoor private seating area outside. Everything was clean, staff were friendly and we were very happy with our stay there. Dinner at the pub is great, and is what made us decide to stay there after eating there during our last visit to the hunter valley.

I stayed here with two of my girlfriends overnight on the long weekend. We stayed in an Executive Room which has two King Beds, even though two had to share with the bed's being so big it didn't bother us.
The night we stayed the Rugby League Grandfinal was on, for staying at a pub there was no noise in our room and the three of us had a great sleep. The room was a great size and opened up to a grassed area which we had direct access to. We didn't feel cramped or 'on top' of each other.
Location was great, we had a wine tour pick us up from the front door. We weren't the only one's either, we saw two other pick up's before us so I wouldn't worry about booking a tour from here. The staff were great, before and during our stay.
We have no complaints about out stay.
