“Comfortable bed, quiet area...”
Reviewed 22 May 2011

Stayed here for two nights in early May. The staff was great help. The internet worked after I turned it off and on. The room and bathroom was clean. You got undercover parking at the door to your room. I had views of the vineyard.

The bed was very comfortable and the room was very big.

The pub food was so so for dinner but the breakfast was great. Only downside was that they had pepsi products and not coca-cola products.

The only downside was that it was not near a town/activity. If you are headed to the valley for quiet time good location. Lots of wineries very near, but I advise take a tour like Cheers Bus or have a designated driver :)

Just got back from Harrigan's in the Hunter Valley and for the most part we're really happy with our stay. Rooms have recently been renovated and look good. Each room has its own quiet large court yard at the rear, ours faced onto the Hunter Valley Gardens so was a lovely outlook. Bathrooms haven't had the major overhaul that the rooms have had, which did let it down a bit. There was a shower curtain which is a particular hate of mine. King size bed was really comfortable not too hard or too soft a nice median.
We took the option of having breakfast included, we thought it was good value and the food served at breakfast was the nicest food we ate from Harrigan's. We had dinner there 2 nights and both times food was quite disapointing. We thought the first night was just because they were busy, but having returned for a second night which wasn't as busy we came to the conclusion the food really is just mediocre as they pre-prepare and reheat a vast majority of it.
Location is good, Harrigan's is right in the centre of the vineyards which was perfect.

Room Tip: We did a vineyard tour with Cheers Bus

Went to Harrigan's for a Meal on a mid week night, I ordered a steak burger and my partner had the Guinness pie both our meals were cold. We also had another couple with us and the Bangers and mash was the only meal served hot. For the price you pay to eat at Harrigan's you would expect the meals to be hot very disappointed. Would not return in a hurry.

I have found Harrigans Irish pub to have great service and quality rooms, although other comments talk down about this hotel, you need to know what you are buy, its located next to a pub with a lot of attractions and events, rooms feel spacious and clean and I didn’t have a single problem, yes there was a bit of noise, but you get what you pay for.
over all I can’t complain and I will return, my next visit will be the 4th time since it was taken over by Hunter Valley gardens.

After reading some comments that others had left in 2009, I was a bit sceptical - having booked the accommodation and then reading "trip advisor" but everything was far above what I expected. Large beds with comfy pillows, spacious rooms, huge bathroom and a really nice private courtyard to sit in. Our only complaint was that the air conditioner did not work - just blew out normal, not cold, air so we slept with the back (flyscreened) door open. Dinner and breakfast were great and the package including the Christmas Lights Spectacular was certainly value for money. Planning on going again and taking my Mum but have to wait to make certain of the weather. Rain means no Christmas Lights! Highly recommend.

The studio room we had at Harrigan's ($130) was big and modern, and the back patio with chairs and a table looked out onto a vineyard. No problem with with room, except that the housekeeping staff didn't replenish the tea after we used it all and didn't remove the rubbish and recycling each day. Also, our room was directly behind the kitchen, and the crash of bottles being emptied at 6 one morning and 7 the next woke us up. If you stay there, avoid the rooms in the 300s and 400s to stay away from the kitchen and service driveway. We found the food in the bistro quite good.

Had mid week dinner. Very disappointing. In particular the Guiness pie. Meat was very tough and pie case was rock hard. $65 for sausages & mash, pie & mash, breads & two beers. Atmosphere was also very busy & noisy. Won't be back again.
