David Lawson and Polly Harvey are the new owners of the Armidale Motel.
Both David and Polly have been in the Armidale and North West area for the last eight years and are excited about their venture into the accommodation industry.
David comes from an agri-business/accounting background and Polly is a professional artist and teaches at The Armidale School.
Polly will continue her teaching career while assisting David with the operation of the Motel. It is a significant change in career direction for David, but with the rural sector in the grip of drought, he is looking forward to some new challenges, and views it as an opportunity for a more stable income. David and Polly bought the Motel through Peter McHugh of Tourism Brokers and said they were most impressed with Peter's approach and commitment.
