“I stayed in la petite chambre Matisse, intrigued by the idea of art, design and accommodation, not knowing quite what to expect. What I found was a unique experience of art and music and beauty and the feeling of a bygone era in a most contemporary way. The interpretation of history and art is exquisitely presented. The welcome and service was warm though not intrusive, and the attention to detail and the modern layouts including the luxury of apple TV music and movies, the glass and stainless steel bathroom with underfloor heating…I could easily get used to this beauty and space. Thankyou Rebecca and Jack for sharing and making this historic home and space with like minded people. Good Luck.”
After a challenging round at spectacular Barnbougle Dunes Golf Course we meandered on towards Launceston, Historic Hatherley House awaited us, what a wonderful treat. Old fashioned elegance and grace fused with fabulous luxurious ‘mod cons’ were a perfect mix. It struck me as a quiet and private oasis. We stayed in the Ballroom Suite, its dance theme features a magnificent modern mural. There was plenty of room to dance if the spirit moved you. After a well earned spa, we enjoyed the mountain views with a drink on the balcony before strolling into the city for dinner. The area is known as Launceston’s Rose Bowl and it’s easy to see why. The historic gardens and leafy parks were bursting with colour. Delicious Tassie food and wine were plentiful, everything from quirky cafes to innovative 5 star dining. ‘Pierre’s’ on George St was our pick from many great looking choices. After our stay we were sorry to be leaving Hatherley, it had charmed us with it’s art, architecture and comfort. In a word superb. We’ll be back.
Thank you for our beautiful room and lovely breakfast. It was a real treat! We are looking forward to returning and staying longer next time!
Thanks for a beautiful room with a view in Launceston. We will be back.
We loved falling asleep with the reflection of the magnolia tree on the ceiling. A most enjoyable stay.
Thank you for a beautiful stay! There is no luxury in life greater than bathing under the stars xx
Dear Rebecca and Jack, Well done! I love your work. Wishing you all the very best for a happy future in this amazing business.
The bath! The magical, wonderful, beautiful bath – in the dark and the fog and the candlelight. Just brilliant. Maria was a veritable mermaid! Thank you for a magnificent escape. I’ll never think of magnolia’s the same way.
Absolutely beautiful. Sorry to have only spent one night here. Thank you we will be back.
Thankyou Rebecca, We’re in love with your beautifully detailed Teahouse Apartment and sad to leave.
