On another long drive towards Sydney, feeling a bit peckish I decided to visit Quality Hotel Powerhouse in Armidale for a bite to eat and was welcomed by very warm friendly staff in a cosy atmosphere. Decided on the “slow cooked grass fed beef ribs” which just fell away from the bone and melted even more in my mouth, delicious....

We're so delighted you stopped by for a well earned meal at Azka Restaurant during your journey south. You chose very well as the slow cooked beef ribs are an exceptional dish & the sweet potato fries are truly delicious! Our Head Chef Lusy is thrilled with your feedback about her curry as it is her family recipe. Thank you...

We actually live in town and come to the restaurant at the Powerhouse for breakfast from time to time. We come because the service is almost always impeccable, the food is excellent and the restaurant is comfortably air conditioned. Due to the extremely hot weather we actually came on Saturday as well as Sunday. On Saturday we were served by...

Finding a good hotel in a country town can sometimes be challenging find an exceptional hotel is rare, such a rare example is the Powerhouse. The entrance off the road does not prepare you for what lies inside. Our room was a standard Queen, very nicely appointed, the bathroom, especially the shower oozed class, roomy with good toiletries to match....

This is one of the nicest hotels in Armidale, however far from the nicest hotel! I travel a lot, and still cannot get over how expensive this place is!! This restaurant is nothing more than 'pub food' and $34.50 for a salad??! $49 for a steak and chips?!?! You're kidding. And $10.50 for a local beer?! Yes that's right, these...

Having been on a road trip for over a week, along with never stopping in Armidale, I was blown away. The hotel was amazing. The staff were delightful and extremely helpful. The rooms were much more than we expected, extremely clean, with even a TV and air-conditioning unit in the bedroom! (We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite). The bathroom...

This has got to be one of the best hotels in the country. We were all unbelievably impressed from the moment we stepped into reception to check-in to the moment we checked out.

I spent 2 nights at the Quality Hotel Powerhouse Armidale in an Executive Suite and found cockroaches crawling around in the cupboard holding the fridge that evening. In the morning I found more cockroaches crawling in the bathroom and in the wardrobe. I reported it to staff including a manager who was rather dismissive and condescending, who said it was...
