4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Very high standard of accommodation for the region. Can't complain about any of it. Staff are very friendly and efficient.Certainly not cheap and I would suggest is probably the most expensive hotel in the town but quiet and in a great location away from the noise that you can get in town.

This was a surprise and a gem. A top quality hotel in the country. The room was completely clean and luxurious. The bathroom, with the heated floor, was clean and beautifully presented. I've rarely been so satisfied. The Wi-Fi was as good as home - such a surprise as that rarely happens and I appreciated it as I don't watch T.V.

The service at the hotel when booking was fantastic. The lady was very friendly and happy to help, booking in was fast and easy. The room was very comfortable and clean. We were warm and cosy the entire time, the room service was fantastic, the restaurant was great and sitting by the fire in the Tapas bar was relaxing and romantic after a hard days mountain biking. I will return with my children as I know they will love it as much as we did.

My family and I stopped at Armidale overnight after a friends recommendation. What a wonderful surprise when I walked into a beautiful reception room and was warmly welcomed by the friendly staff. Our room was two bedroom with plenty of space for the four of us. The room was elegantly decorated, and the bathroom had underfloor heating. If you are staying here, I would recommend having breakfast at the hotel it was delicious. Our kids loved having a tv in their bedroom also! I would stay again in a heartbeat.

I recently ran a three day event for our Board at the Powerhouse, and I can't speak highly enough of the place. The facilities, food, rooms and staff are *all* outstanding. Will definitely be the stick by which I measure events I run like this in the future. Thanks, guys, you were all I could have hoped for.

Stayed here for business recently. Had a double bed room ground floor Very quiet so had a great sleep Rooms are well appointed with comfy beds lounges heated floors in bathroom huge shower and coffee capsule machines The only fault was I had breakfast at 9am and most of the buffet had been taken away. It wasn't busy but it was a distraction as I felt I was intruding by asking for a cooked meal. Overlooking the breakfast issue I would stay again Service at check in was very professional

Remember many (many!) years ago when Hilton Hotels use to set the standard? Well I'm thinking that perhaps the owners/management of the Country Comfort Armidale may have formerly worked for Hilton Hotels!! This motel is perhaps the finest rural motel I have ever stayed at in the whole of Australia. And I have worked and stayed in numerous motels/hotels throughout every State and Territory in the country. In fact, this motel leaves most city motels in its wake. The amenities are first class, the restaurant is brilliant, rooms are immaculately presented and maintained and the staff are exceptional right throughout the motel. From the receptionist to the batman to the restaurant staff to the room service staff. Every single staff member acknowledged us, greeted us with a smile, and exchanged pleasantries and a desire to make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. As someone who has been involved in training and development for over 30 years, I would suggest that staff at this motel are not only well recruited, they are also extremely well trained. Congratulations and thank you to the staff and management of this wonderful motel. Whenever we are even remotely close to this location, it will definitely be our businesses motel of choice.

We just spent three days at this hotel with our company's board and the staff and facilities could not have been better. The meeting rooms were set up exactly to our requirements, the staff were warm and welcoming and the catering superb. The staff were able to accommodate all our needs and offer other options as well. The rooms were warm and comfortable, particularly the heated tiles in the bathroom - very nice on cold mornings! I highly recommend this hotel for conferences as well as a short or long stay with the family.

Travelling home from Bathurst to Brisbane we stopped here. Very comfortable with very friendly staff. We ate in the restaurant and the food was exceptional. Can't praise the place highly enough. We will stop by again if the occasion arises.

It was -2 Centigrade outside and the heated bathroom floor tiles were just magic. Room was excellent. Staff superb. Lots of parking. Good food in the onsite restaurant. Good location. Will stay there again.
