Having eaten at the playhouse many times on business trips - and enjoyed it, I took my family for a long weekend. The rooms are elegantly appointed, clean and everything is of a high quality - beds are very comfortable. Andrew ensures you are welcome and feel at home with his exuberant manner and the home cooked style of food... More

I look forward to visiting every time I have to travel to the area. From the moment you start the day with a very varied and delicious menu to fantastic dinners and movies in the... More

This was an accidental last minute find on a trip and what a great place. The guys really run a small hotel well and the rooms and theatre are unique. Its a long drive from home but we will be back. The set dinner was exceptional and a little provincial french and the wine was also very good. As was... More

The playhouse is an amazing hotel. The entire building has been meticulously restored and the rooms are so homely yet beautifully modern. The food was suberb and the owners are extremely gracious and lovely. The hotel is the total package. Would love to come back. Thanks, Tina

Can't rave enough about this oasis of style and comfort in country NSW. It's more like a privately-owned manor house than a hotel. You feel at home as soon as you walk in the door and meet the charming hosts, Andrew and Haddon (and Gus, the four-pawed doorman) . The rooms are modern and comfortable, the meals are delicious, the... More

We were warmly welcomed by Andrew when we arrived for our overnight stay on 21 July, 2014. The hotel has been wonderfully decorated and was very comfortable and was simply superb. We had a delicious dinner there in the evening, the food being sourced locally and beautifully prepared and cooked. Breakfast was also delightful with the food being prepared perfectly... More

We had the pleasure of staying at The Playhouse Hotel over four nights. The hospitality of Andrew and his staff was wonderful. We were part of the Frost Over Barraba guest artists and enjoyed the breakfasts and dinners provided by the chef....delicious and varied. Would love to go again! Thank you Andrew

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
