The Playhouse Hotel
The Playhouse Hotel is a boutique hotel with a difference. Formerly known as the Central Hotel, the oldest of Barraba’s four pubs, this 1905 building stands on the crossroads in the middle of town and was fully renovated in 2007. As part of this project, the hotel’s disused pool hall was converted into an 80-seat studio-style theatre and the building reopened as “The Playhouse Hotel.” In 2015 the hotel won "Best Regional Business" at the Tamworth Chamber of Commerce Quality Business Awards, and in 2012 was Highly Commended in the "Heritage Tourism" section of Tamworth Regional Council's Heritage Awards. The hotel has also won "Certificate of Excellence" for customer service from Trip Advisor in 2015, 2016 and 2017.
