Is there a Reception?
Hatherley Birrell Collection operates keyless entry, with no need to check-in or check-out in the traditional sense. You will be emailed a personal code for access to the property prior to your arrival. If you have not received your code within a week of your arrival please contact us.
While there is no reception area, Jack and Rebecca Birrell operate their design business and live at the Hatherley House site, so someone is always close by and available for guests, along with a friendly Manager to meet and greet during office hours.
Due to the unique characteristics of century old buildings, some suites have limited access. Ballroom access is via stairs.
Why are there two different addresses?
We have two locations.
At 43 High Street:
The Ballroom, la petite chambre Matisse, Magnolia Garden Pavilion, The Muse Garden Pavilion
At 106 Tamar Street:
Teahouse City Apartment
Are there communal areas?
Hatherley Birrell Collection respects that our guests value their privacy, and each guest room has it’s own outdoor space. Jack and Rebecca have restored the main house to it’s original use as a private residence, where they live with their two children, cats and dog.
Is there parking available?
Both sites have off street parking available free of charge.
What time is check-in and check-out?
Check-in time is 2.00pm and check-out time is 10.00am. If you would like to ask about an early check-in or late check-out please contact us, we may be able to offer these, although it is dependant on other bookings.

In the interests of the health and safety of our guests, all the Hatherley Birrell Collection properties are non smoking.

A most wonderful experience! This place is indeed perfect for two and so comfortable and convenient. The bathroom design is fantastic. We played records, watched the apple TV, lolled in the comfy bed with cups of tea and strolled in the gardens, delighted in the breakfast and had the best sleep ever. Thank you for having such great ideas for accommodation and hospitality. We would love to come back and stay in all the pieces of the collection.
Beautiful, just beautiful. I fell in love with my wife over 30 years ago and this has been a very special place to celebrate those 30 years. We celebrated our 20th in Tasmania and now our 30th. We will be back her to celebrate our 40th. Just love this island, it’s a reminder of our home of birth in Ireland. Thank you so much for this beautiful room.
Beautiful accommodation. Loved all the special finishing touches. Delicious breakfast, you’ve thought of everything to make this feel like home. Thankyou.
A lovely place to start our honeymoon in Tasmania. This room provided us with such joy as we were never bored with looking at the furnishings and fixtures. Such attention to detail pleased us very much. A relaxing and comfortable stay. Many thanks for the special gift on arrival, it has made our stay that much more wonderful. We are excited for the next time, we believe this to be a jewel in Australia’s accommodation scene. Thank you all very much PS the heated floor was a great touch!
What a great spot for a wonderful long weekend. We particularly liked the lovely restful gardens & the magnificent tub – just the way to end a busy day exploring the sights and tastes of Launceston. We’ll be back! Thanks for a very inspirational stay.
Dear Rebecca & Jack, You have created a unique getaway spot. The gardens are peaceful and perfect. The bathroom and outside tub is a piece of art. The bed and chairs are luxurious. Your dog and especially the cat are stunning beyond words. “Pure Magic”
What a lovely place! Totally relaxing. I spent time in the garden, enjoyed drawing, loved playing the Beatles on the record player. Calm, peaceful surroundings help to restore the soul! The bath was divine & I enjoyed opening the sliding door and being immersed in the magnolia tree. I totally relaxed. Thankyou.
We both enjoyed our stay in this beautiful room, we felt a million miles away. We’ll be back!
Thanks Bec and Jack for a lovely relaxing stay. The outdoor bath was just perfect, so relaxing. We really enjoyed the little touches of attention to detail.
Thank you for a gorgeous stay down here in Launceston – an absolutely stunning room! Much love.
