This is our second stay at this hotel and we have been impressed both times. Armidale is a stopping point on our return trip from Sydney to Brisbane and the Powerhouse represents excellent value. The renovations are superb and every detail and comfort has been considered. Our deluxe room (standard) was spacious and extremely pleasant . The relaxing music playing on the CD when we entered set the standard for a great experience in this hotel. The leather lounge, marble bathroom, oversize shower, extra towels,comfortable bedding, safe, quality lighting, microwave, spacious cupboards, ipod dock and elegant fixtures were all appreciated. The room was comfortably cooled, quiet and just excellent in all respects. All staff went out of their way to be helpful - they are proud of this establishment and rightly so. We were contacted by SMS text the morning before our arrival to confirm our times and were treated as if our needs were most important. Breakfast was included in the rate and was delightful - with a delicious variety of pastries, cereals, juices and fresh fruit. A hot cooked breakfast was also offered at a reasonable price. We did not have dinner at the hotel on this visit, but did so last time and found that also to be of a high standard.
My husband and I have travelled extensively this year and have stayed in many great establishments, including five star hotels in Sydney, New York, Washington DC and Paris. It would be easy to think that an overnight stay in a country town was not worth writing about after that, but we both felt we had such a relaxing and enjoyable night that it was worth sharing with others. No matter where we have stayed, good service, fine ameneties and value are important to us and Powerhouse Armidale surpassed our expectations. We will return again to this hotel.
