Spent 2 nights at the Powerhouse and was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the place. I had a very large 1 bedroom apartment with a spa. The bed was very comfortable and the shower has excellent pressure. Room service meal was first class and cleanliness was good. The only issue I had on the stay was that I was... More

We stayed at the Powerhouse hotel for 3 nights during the Tamworth Country Music Festival and loved it! The service is wonderful around the hotel and in the restaurant, not to mention the courtesy car service during the festival to save you the short walk into town or to take you to one of the edge of town venues.

What a fantastic place to stay! The rooms are so elegantly appointed and presented beautifully. The bathrooms are so generous and practical with walk-in showers. Superb bedding and well stocked mini bar with great tea/coffee making facilities. Reception staff were so helpful and friendly and I can't wait to return!

Had driven for over 8 hours, so arriving at The Powerhouse was a relief. The reception desk operates 24/7, and staff were delightful. Very informative, and keen to help. I requested a ground floor room, and it was beautiful. Powerhouse is on an historic site. In 1888, Tamworth was the first town to have electric lighting, and the motel stands... More

We stay here when driving back from Queensland back into Sydney. Its a great place and would recommend it. The rooms are good and they have a great range of bunk sizes. I would be a little nervous of the dinner on site if you're on a budget though as the restaurant is very good and the prices match.

We stayed in a one bedroom suite with a kitchenette. It was a good size and well and comfortably furnished. We had dinner in the restaurant, it was okay by city standards (city prices!) but nothing special. The breakfast was excellent, we pre-booked, at $19 per person for a very expansive cold buffet plus a cooked dish option it was... More

Great as usual. Went for dinner with family, 2A, 2C (11yo,7yo). Kids menu has good quality meals, and kids packs to keep them entertained. Service was fast and attentive, and the beef ribs with bbq sauce is excellent. The coffee tasted better than previous visit and capped off great family dinner.
