We had my daughters' wedding at this hotel and the staff couldn't have looked after us any better. We had a wonderful, private reception in the Asha Room. We were looked after very well, all our requests were met with a smile and staff were very accommodating. My daughter and her new husband were upgraded to the honeymoon suite at...

We recently visited Armidale for football, and we chose to stay at the Powerhouse. I had previously travelled extensively to the region for work but had never had the opportunity to stay at the Powerhouse. The cost isn't much more than other motels in the area, and its well worth the additional $$ - the rooms are well presented and...

What can I say? This hotel has it all. The rooms are magnificent and totally decadent. We had two bedrooms and kitchen with dishwasher and coffee maker. Bathroom with separate toilet, but no separate shower. Step into bath. Only thing that always disappoints me. The restaurant was mind blowing. Don't stay here if you are counting your pennies. One night...

I stayed with the Armidale Powerhouse for three weeks for a business trip whilst conducting work in Armidale, and I cannot recommend it highly enough. The staff, particularly Monty, Jodie and Heidi were fabulous and made it significantly easier to keep up with work whilst travelling.

I highly recommend this hotel if anyone is looking for a corporate venue to hold training.
