Have stayed at many hotels, motels within all of Australia. I can't speak highly enough of the Owners standards of service to his guest. The Hotel has gone thru a complete renovation and can put many City Hotels to shame, the foyer and rooms are exceptional in cleanliness and modernisation. We had both dinner and breakfast and extremely full Thanks... More

The Playhouse is lovely. We use it regularly for workshops and meetings. Everyone involved is lovely and goes out of their way to make things run smoothly. Food is always perfect and the general ambience is second to none. A rare find indeed. Thanks guys!

OMG what a wonderful hotel ! The room was lovely & very comfortable. Andrew prepared a great 2 course dinner then whisked us off to the theatre with a bottle of bubbly to watch a movie. It was gold class to the max. We hope to return one day to the little oasis in the desert. A big thank you... More

We visited Barraba on the weekend for our Nephew's wedding, needless to say in a small country town, all accommodation was full with wedding guests, booked well in advance. The Playhouse was beautifully set up - we took our teenage kids so found rooms 2 & 3 perfect for us as they are connected & share a bathroom. The rooms... More

Whilst on a solo bicycle journey (a birthday treat for myself) I had planned to stop in Barraba along the way - and I was so glad that the Playhouse Hotel was there. Andrew is a welcoming and engaging host, who's done a fantastic job in restoring the old pub to something beyond it's former glory. The bed was super... More

Last night I attended a function at the Playhouse. Had never been there before and was delighted to find a smart, clean and friendly reception. I left my earrings on the table where I was dining and, of course, in a grey moment left them behind. I received a call from Andrew this morning to say he had found them.... More

I have the distinct feeling that should I ever again visit Barraba and wish to stay in the Playhouse Hotel, it will have vanished like the proverbial Brigadoon, and it was all just a figment of my imagination! Of the many hotels/motels/B&Bs we stayed in while away, only one has remained firmly fixed in my mind and every few days... More
