Fantastic hotel- have stayed before but with the new Reno particularly to the restaurant this is the best hotel in inland Australia . Food quality matches the decor .The range and quality of steaks was fantastic and drinks at the new bar is a great way to finish the night . Staff are great too .

Recommended by a friend and great stopover. Restaurant very nice but bit expensive for kids eating. Hotel room great and pool enjoyed by the family. Would definitely stay again on our way through and recommend to others.

Our overnight stay was excellent. Our dinner was 6 stars, as was our breakfast. All the staff we had contact with were friendly and highly competent. Thank you we will stay there next time we are in Tamworth.

On our annual trek north to Brisbane, we always make a point of going via Tamworth specifically so that we can stop over at the Powerhouse on our way through. It's the kind of five star motel you wouldn't expect to find that far outside of a capital city, and a very welcoming place after hours on the road. Rooms...

I stayed here for a work trip and honestly expected a hotel in a country town to be a bit basic, but I was impressed by the quality here. I had to share a room with a colleague, but this was no problem as our room had a separate bedroom. Staff were helpful and breakfast was very good. I would...

Reception was welcoming, mini bar was stocked well at good prices. Semi Sav bottle only $25 and yum. Would have been better if aircon had been turned on already as curtains were open and both room and bedroom were really hot. We got a spa suite, was lovely with robes, Plenty of towels, and fantastically big bed. Even a highchair...

Booked on booking.com as I'd read on their website they'd refurbished in dec 2016. When we checked in we confirmed that our room was refurbished but apparently no rooms are yet, just the lobby restaurant areas. So we were disappointed, at first. We're kind of surprised they are refurbishing soon as our room, with marble bathroom, was fine, had everything...

The "quality" and service of this roadside motel is truly out of this world. What I thought to be a cheap stay in a small country town to visit family over Xmas has turned out to be a 5 star accommodation delight. Everything from the rooms to the bathroom are set in rich mahogany wood, regal furnishings make it warm...
