I have stayed here a number of times and highly recommend it. Very comfortable with underfloor heating in the bathroom. Lovely staff and great service. Had tapas at the restaurant and tasty breakfast - recommend the potato rosti! I will be back. I look forward to my stays at Armidale because of this hotel.

Staff, Meals. Rooms , all top notch ,highlight is the staff , as a worker that travels often I always feel at home whilst the staff know me, I observe that they treat all visitors with the same warmth and human interaction ,same to be said for the Tamworth Powerhouse Hotel

My husband and I stayed for one night on our way from the Sunshine Coast to Sydney and it was a convenient place to stop. The reception staff were friendly and explained all the services etc on arrival. We were allocated a 2nd floor room which was great and probably preferable so you don’t get the car headlights shining into your room.

The room had everything you would want and was very clean and tidy. For a short stay you really could not fault it.

I would recommend this hotel for overnight stay.

Room Tip: 2nd level probably best to car headlights don't shine into your room, but you do need to get you...

My wife and I booked this hotel again on an interstate trip from NSW to Qld. Again, we made the right decision. Clean, well appointed, free WiFi, good bed, great room service (the Pizza is great) and hot. It's definately worth paying a little extra for a very memorable stay.

Room Tip: We had room 110 and is were not bothered by traffic or any other noise. Blackout blinds also helped.

The service we received from our recent stay was disappointing. My 18mth old slept unsafely between myself and my wife as no baby cot was supplied despite multiple requests leading up to night one. No appology was forthcoming from head mgt only excuses. The sofa bed for our guests was so uncomfortable sthey ended up sleeping on the floor. Kids and myself woke up with open soars after being bitten by critters from the beds.

Thank you for your constructive feedback and for taking the time to discuss your experience over the phone. Our sincere apologies for you not receiving a cot on the first night of your 3 night stay with us. I am surprised about the sofa bed, because they are extremely sturdy and have thick mattresses (as you agreed) but we will investigate to ensure its quality. I was very concerned by your suggestion that there were critters in your room and as discussed with you we can confirm that the room was definitely critter free.

Stayed here one night only but extremely clean and well located hotel.
Although we did not like the decor, way too puffy and dark, the rooms were absolutely fine and very well equipped. The same applies for the restaurant, inside looking like a sort of oriental palace of not the best taste, the food and service were absolutely excellent. Same for breakfast.

Although I have reviewed this hotel before, I just had to write another one following our last stay in January on our way back from Sydney to Queensland. My husband and I always look forward to staying here and have never been disappointed. The room is very comfortable and all facilities and amenities are well above what we expect outside of a city hotel. There are a number of little touches which just make the stay perfect. This time we booked a Romance package which included dinner, bed and breakfast for what I thought was an excellent value rate. Azka is just perfect. I have a thing about Moroccan lamps and combined with the mirrors and plants - the décor is really lovely. The meals are superb - both dinner and breakfast. Steaks are tender and juicy, service is very attentive and professional and the cooked breakfast in the morning is a wonderful way to start a day of travel. We look forward to staying with you again! Thank you for your kind attention to our travel needs.
