Celebrated an event here and had a ball. Had dinner beforehand and was delicious and inexpensive! The entertainment was great and we had so much fun dancing both inside and outside of the hotel. Great place for catching up with friends!

Room was basic but did the job. Had a filling breakfast and dinner and also organised a packed lunch. Was able to enjoy a few beers at the bar before heading back to the room. Even had a small win on Keno.

The Family Hotel was established in 1860, and has served the people of the Hunter and the surrounds since that time. The Hotel has always been more than just a Pub to locals. During the Maitland floods in 1955, the Family Hotel sheltered numerous families who were left homeless. Since undergoing new ownership in 2017, changes have been made to bring the old Hotel back to its glory days. Many loyal and new customers commended both of the new owners, of the job they have done restoring the overall experience at the Hotel. Within the historic building, you’ll find delicious food, which can be washed down by a selection of drinks available at the Dusty Miner Bar. We hope to see you soon!
