Felt very spoilt at The Playhouse this weekend - our first visit. Very warm and cosy rooms, lovely clean and modern bathroom, delicious dinner and breakfast. Andrew and his staff thoughtfully anticipated our individual needs in spite of such a busy weekend - Frost Over Barraba art show. Prices very reasonable. Barraba people so welcoming and friendly and lots to... More

A wonderful place to stay. Attentive host Andrew and his fantastic staff made our stay for a country wedding on 11th April an absolute pleasure. Every detail was anticipated. Last minute requests for sandwiches and champagne in the beautiful courtyard were handled in truly professional style. Breakfast the following morning was sensational even though our numbers were greater than anticipated.... More

Andrew and Haddon are to be congratulated for renovating the former Central Hotel to a modern haven for travellers. The bedrooms were spacious with modern bathrooms. The dining we experienced was excellent and the coffee delicious. This true gem in Barraba, held an art gallery and theatre and room for conferences and special events. With regular live shows and movies... More

Excellent accommodation with well appointed rooms and very modern bathrooms. Exceptional and thoughtful service. Andrew and Haddon are very gracious hosts. We arrived at 9:30 pm on a Friday night to a full dining service at very short notice to the hotel. Great breakfast, great coffee. This is also an Art Gallery, cinema/ theater. It is a destination not to... More

This is a wonderful boutique hotel, well furnished, well run and excellent value. The room I stayed in was simple but oh so comfortable. The free wifi was much appreciated I wish our city motels could match this. The highlight however was the breakfast, I had the best poached eggs and coffee ever and some of the best breakfast conversation... More

Not sure what it is that makes The Playhouse Hotel so special? Could be the location in the Main Street of peaceful Barraba. Could be the delicious home cooked food, the comfy, bright and clean rooms, the unique building and artistic touches? I think it is mostly the warm welcome and personalised service that Andrew and Haddon offer their guests.... More

Barraba is a really attractive town, lined by beautiful Plane trees and nice wide streets. Typical of a small country town, very small, but clean and the people really friendly, always acknowledged us as we walked by. The Playhouse seems to a bit of a centre point for the town and was recommended to us as the place to say... More

We stayed at the Playhouse in September 2013. This was a return visit to sample again the ambience of this jewel of accommodation. The hotel has a small theatre and during our stay we sat through a movie. Our room was immaculate and very comfortable with all the little things that go with a good hotel, teas, coffees with nice...
