Event Hospitality has bolstered its regional Rydges network further, signing two properties under the Powerhouse Hotels banner in the country NSW towns of Tamworth and Armidale.
By the end of July 2019, both hotels will have rebranded to Powerhouse Hotel Tamworth and Powerhouse Hotel Armidale and adding the “by Rydges” suffix. Both properties will continue to be owned and managed by Greg Maguire while benefiting from the marketing and distribution nous of the Rydges stable.
Powerhouse Hotel Tamworth by Rydges offers 81 rooms, with a multimillion dollar upgrade set to result in a promotion from 4.5-star to five-star as new King Rooms are added to the hotel’s inventory, says Maguire.
“Powerhouse Hotels is an Australian owned family business and we’ve been operating in regional NSW for the past 39 years. Over this time we’ve developed a solid reputation for being at the heart of the business community with exceptional service, quality restaurants and bars and luxurious facilities.”
The properties have set themselves on a path to boost their appeal to the local corporate sector, global distribution, food and beverage innovation, digital strategy and increased business from the meetings and conference sector, while continuing to offer Australian guest experiences.
Powerhouse Hotel Armidale by Rydges offers 57 rooms and suites along with an on-site restaurant and tapas bar, fitness centre and meeting rooms.
