We can provide medium and longer term accommodation. Some questions are answered below.
What are the rates for long stays?
Rates depend on the number of people, the length of stay and circumstances of the guest. We welcome students and new immigrants and refugees and work to accomodate their needs.
Do I get my room cleaned?
No. If you are staying on longer than a week we just ask you clean your room, including changing your sheets, weekly. We can supply all cleaning products and brooms and vacuum cleaner for you to keep your own room clean. In fact we insist on clean rooms as a condition of a longer stay. We do inspections to make sure our house stays tidy at all times.
What type of guests stay on longer?
We provide rooms for workers on contract in Tamworth for a few weeks or a few months. Also students and interns are welcome. Working Holiday Visa travellers also often stay with us as we are clean and cheap and they can often look for jobs in town. People seeking treatment at local specialists or hospitals may also stay on longer. Groups in town for conferences, sport, festivals or special events may also want to stay a few weeks and we welcome those bookings if we have the space!
We are not a permanent home for folk but on a case by case basis can provide rooms for several months or even longer if needed.

Is linen provided?
