Powerhouse Tamworth and Powerhouse Armidale join Rydges brand

The Rydges brand is expanding its regional hotel offering with Powerhouse Hotels joining its network.

Powerhouse Hotel Tamworth and Powerhouse Armidale, currently branded as Quality Hotels, have joined the growing stable of Rydges properties in the Event Hospitality & Entertainment Limited portfolio. Both hotels will continue to be managed by owner and hotelier Greg Maguire.

“Powerhouse Hotels is an Australian owned family business and we’ve been operating in regional NSW for the past 39 years,” said Maguire. “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 completion of a multi-million dollar upgrade, which will take our Tamworth hotel from a 4.5 star rating to a 5-star rating, was the catalyst for choosing to partner with Event whose brands, Rydges Hotels and Resorts, QT Hotels and Resorts and Atura Hotels are at the leading edge of Australian hospitality.

“We’re confident our Rydges partnership will deliver a local corporate sector focus, distribution strength in the global marketplace, continued innovation in our food and beverage offering, increased MICE business, strong digital strategy and authentically Australian guest experiences.”
