About Powerhouse Hotel Tamworth by Rydges

Welcome to the Quality Hotel Powerhouse, Tamworth’s only 4.5 star hotel open 24 hours for your convenience. The Powerhouse leads the way in smart luxury, superb service & delicious cuisine at the Workshop Kitchen & Coal Bunker Bar.

Located on the New England Highway & just a few minutes from the CBD, the hotel features 61 elegant rooms & 20 serviced apartments with FREE wi-fi, smart TVs with Foxtel, 24 hour reception, room service, gym, outdoor pool & spa, BBQ area & guest laundry.

The Powerhouse has a range of upmarket room styles from brand new Powerhouse King Rooms to Superior Queen Rooms, Executive King Suites, Family Suites & King Spa Apartments. All rooms feature an Espressotoria coffee pod machine, reverse cycle air conditioning, full block out curtains, marble bathroom, bathrobes & luxurious toiletries.

All seasonal menus at The Workshop Kitchen are created by Ben Davies, a three times recipient of a Michelin Star and focus on fresh local New England produce – enough reason to visit! A wood fired oven & grill are at the heart of the open kitchen – both are fired up daily with the finest Pilliga Western Red Ironbark which imparts a unique smoked flavour. All beef is sourced locally where possible from Paul Avery’s Mountain View Farm to Jack’s Creek Beef – two time winner of the World’s Best Steak.

The restaurant’s outstanding wine list received a 2 Glass rating in Australia’s 2017 & 2018 Wine List of the Year Awards – the first in the region to ever receive this accolade.

The Workshop Kitchen is open daily from 6.30am for breakfast, lunch, dinner & is open every public holiday.

Escape into the intimate & refined Coal Bunker Bar open every day until late. With bespoke American oak timber furniture, plush velvet panelling & stylish leather seating, settle in to sip cocktails, sample local craft beers or partake from the extensive global roaming whisky cabinet. The restaurant also serves up delicious bar snacks & platters of cured meats & cheese to curb your hunger.

A boutique private dining room, boardroom & contemporary conference centre are available for meetings & special events.

An abundance of onsite parking is available plus two Tesla Destination Charging stations. The hotel is a 10 minute drive from Tamworth Regional Airport & a 5 minute walk to shops, restaurants, cafes & bars.

The hotel is easily identified by the obelisk at the front of the property. This was erected to recognise Tamworth as the first town in Australia & the southern hemisphere to provide its residents with electric street lighting. The hotel was built on the original power station or ‘powerhouse’ site – hence the name & celebration of this intriguing history throughout the hotel.

The Powerhouse is a proud recipient of a 2018 Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence for both the hotel & restaurant & a Choice Hotels Asia-Pac 2018 Gold Award.
