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.

Thankyou for such a wonderful stay! From the outdoor bath under the stars, the quirky art decoration, comfort and stunning sunrise over the garden, the place had a magical feel, good effect and was most enjoyable! Lovely breakfast, and lovely touch to have a roof window over the bed to look at the stars! A truly special place filled with character and to be highly recommended!
A wonderful, sumptuous place to relax and unwind. la petite chambre Matisse is a lovely retreat – thanks for the experience.
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.
Thankyou so much Rebecca & Jack for the privilege of staying in your truly beautiful boutique accommodation. So very peaceful and the best nights sleep we’ve both had. Breakfast was sublime We can’t wait to share our experiences we’ve had here in Launceston. We’ll be back.
