Our extended family of 25 thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere, cinema, food (Shellie's meals were lovely and arguably the best in town) hospitality and hard work that Andrew and his staff put into accommodating our clan at the Playhouse Hotel. Staying there was definitely one of the highlights of our trip and perfect for our needs.

My family and I stayed at the Playhouse for a Long weekend. The playhouse also hosted the lunch for 60 family and friends. It's a class act with Andrew particularly focused on ensuring everyone is well looked after, relaxed, and really enjoying his fine food, good wine and well appointed rooms, dining areas and cinema. I'm so glad the Playhouse...

Andrew and his team created an amazing experience during our stay with private dining in the cinema, expertly catered and with the mood set by artful lighting and table decorations. A well kept and lovingly restored hotel with attentive and friendly staff. Our group of 12 could not have been happier with our stay. A must if you are in...

My husband and I stay at the Playhouse whenever we go to Barraba to see family. Andrew is a such a wonderful host and the service is on par with expensive city hotels. The historical building is beautifully refurbished and the rooms give a homely feel. My favorite is the relaxing ambience in the dining room while enjoying great food.

Held a team christmas function at the Playhouse and Jane and her staff were fabulous! More than accommodation to our requests for a Christmas themed dinner, accommodation - and helping find additional accommodation. Could not have asked for more. Coffee/breakfast was fabulous too. Tidy/clean rooms, just made for a fabulous conference.

Absolutely loved my stay at the Playhouse. I was at the hotel for the better part of three weeks for work in the area. The ladies here really made it seem like a home away from home. The Rooms I stayed in were beautifully renovated and very clean and comfortable. What really makes the playhouse stand out though is the...

We had a family celebration here in mid October. The Venue was delightful and the food delicious. I can't thank the staff enough for such a wonderful afternoon and evening. The Theatre was perfect for the celebratory slideshow and to entertain the younger kids with a move while adults enjoyed dinner. Loved the beautiful flowers from their garden as well.

This is a unique establishment that doesn't fit into normal categorization. Wonderful Staff, Room great. Food great. We spent a night whilst traveling through NSW. After a long day's driving it was wonderful to be pampered from the time we walked in the door all the way to our checkout. We happened to stay on a night that Goldheist was...
