I really deliberated on the rating and decided on very good because it is better than a lot of other accommodation in Tamworth...however I changed it back to average because the powerhouse usually charges more for accommodation than other places and has a reputation with the locals as being "the best" but in fact it's reputation is better than the...

Room ok for a quick overnighter. Expect a bit of street noise. Open shower. Tea and coffee area not very well placed as combined in bathroom area. 2.5 stars only. Surprised this is allowed in the Quality chain.

After a mix up with their sister hotel in Armidale we continued onto Tamworth. Staff were very understanding and we were well compensated with an excellent upgrade. Room was very very comfortable. Our room service meal wasn't up to scratch so we weren't charged for it. We didn't have to complain to be well looked after. They were excellent, would... More

We were due to stay for a conference but delays in the ongoing renovations/extensions resulted in the event having to be transferred to the Sanctuary Inn across the road which worked OK. However we wanted a two-room apartment and decided to stay, and it didn't meet our expectations. We were promised a bathroom and an en-suite but the apartment only... More

We are glad that the conference worked well for you at the Sanctuary Inn. We are sorry for the misunderstanding about the number of bathrooms in your apartment. During your stay it rained a lot, so it would have been difficult for the housekeepers to keep the floors clean all day. We are very pleased that the rest of the... More

For a place that is suppose to be one of the best in Tamworth, is far from that. We stayed in a unit with a spa, that was dirty, and a fence that had holes in it, that kids did look through from the main car park. The room was not cleaned great either, with an overpriced bar fridge. The... More

I have stayed here a number of times this year and have never been disappointed.

My regular accommodation in Tamworth. The rooms are very nice, very good bathrooms and the bonus of a brilliant restaurant that does room service.

Tamworth was experiencing icy cold weather, the room was very comfortable, warm and lovely to go back to; efficient and friendly staff; room service from the Powerhouse restaurant and was also very good. Major renovations were underway, this did not make the stay any less comfortable. Best asset - a beautiful bathroom.
