Very competitively priced and well located in the centre of town. The property was very tidy and I found the rooms and amenities fresh and clean. The added convenience of the pub/restaurant downstairs for all meals. Will stay again.

Nice cosy older style pub. Great service and the lamb shank pie with mash potatoes and peas was excellent. Parking is plentiful around the pub. Prices were average but definitely worth it. Suitable for any ages.

Shenanigans at The Imperial is a family operated, Irish themed Pub with 14 non ensuite, non smoking rooms over 2 floors, a 7 day a week bar and bistro on the ground floor,and is located in the lower Hunter ...More Valley of NSW, Australia. Special discounted rates for two or more nights are available, including a weekly rate of AUD350.00 for a single person and AUD470 for two people sharing. The pub has a great bistro serving local produce for lunch and dinner, 7 days a week, including lunch and dinner specials from around AUD10. The rooms are extremely clean and comfortable, all with reverse cycle air conditioning and flat screen television, and the setting is quiet and comfortable. Management does not permit smoking, the consumption of alcohol or the use of illicit drugs on the two accommodation levels. A self serve light breakfast of tea/coffee, toast, cereal and orange juice is included in the tariff. A laundry service is offered at competitive rates. The first pub on the current site The Birmingham House, dates back to 1851. The City of Maitland is historically significant, being first settled in the very early 1800's and provides the perfect base for day trips to the arts and crafts village of Morpeth, the vineyards of the Hunter Valley, and the mountains of the Barringtons. Maitland is also just 30 minutes from the best beaches Australia's east coast has to offer and only 2 hours from the bright lights of Sydney. The Irish decor of Shenanigans is a perfect example of Dublin-designed Guinness theme pubs, and well worth the visit alone. Less
