Cheerful and happy receptionists are backed up by a really excellent room and hotel. The furnishings and decor are first class and an impressive mini-bar is welcoming. The wet area, for a change, is well designed and the shower delivers a satisfying amount of water. The accommodation will meet even the most demanding requirements of any traveller and I will...

Held a webcast at this venue and was highly impressed with venue coordinator Jo. She is extremely professional & extremely capable of troubleshooting any issues that arose. I would love to return. I highly recommend the function centre.

I travel extensively throughout regional and rural Queensland and New South Wales entertaining and informing clients. The Powerhouse in Tamworth was simply superb- one of the best I've utilized. Service outstanding- nothing was too much trouble. The quality of food was also first class. A professional outfit.

I have had the pleasure of facilitating a number of functions at the hotel, and staying many times. I can only describe the staff as professional and fantastic. Functions are highly professional and the venue is faultless. The staff respond to all our needs and are always flexible to changes as they occur. I facilitate all around NSW regularly and... More

Staying at the inn for two weeks in a single bed apartment. Can't find fault with the rooms or the cleanliness. Tried the restaurant the first night and left very disappointed. Ordered the steak, which was not 500g as stated, and it arrived floating in a combination of peppercorn sauce and a slice of butter. Along with this there were... More

First time I've stayed here. I was pleasantly surprised by the appearance of the room. I arrived around 9pm and was welcomed by the friendly reception staff. My room was very 'homely' - a very pleasant room with a lounge and sensible table. The bed was a little firm for my liking. The bathroom was well designed. The water pressure... More

This hotel would have to be the best country hotel/motel the quality is above the normal country motels. I have been staying at this property for the last 29 years since it opened, It has regular upgrades every 5 years or so.

I stay in Tamworth regularly and would not stay anywhere else but the Powerhouse. The rooms very well presented, comfy beds and good size amenities. My favourite part of the motel is the Workshop restaurant, I've eaten here for the past 5 years and in all honesty I have had fantastic food. The menu caters for all tastes, with a... More

Just stayed in a two bedroom family suite. Rooms are a bit cramped for four people. Decor is nice with historic reading of the town in the picture frames. Location is fair considering the Tamworth city layout is spread out in a unique shape. Overall a nice stay

Thank you for taking the time to submit your review. We always find that providing two separate rooms and a little privacy for travelling families is a luxurious bonus, so we are sorry you didn't feel this way. We are glad that you enjoyed all other aspects of your stay though, and we hope to see you again the next... More
