A magnificent stay at Hatherley Birrell Collection. Thank you Rebecca and Jack for your amazing hospitality. The room was wonderful, so comfortable and cozy, absolutely perfect for my stay! I will certainly be visiting again in the very near future. Thank you again!
Hi Rebecca Thankyou for the last minute accommodation! Breakfast was divine and the room is incredible! 5 star service and an exquisite end to our first weekend away together : ) Thanks again.
What a wonderful way to spend our last night in Tasmania. Total relaxation!
“Launceston’s most refined accommodation!” This collection of four suites in Launceston’s CBD by far out shines all other options. If you want luxury, comfort and above all a unique artistic approach then you will be doing yourself an absolute favour by choosing the Hatherley Birrell Collection. Whatever your specific requirements there is an option to suit. Location wise all four suites are approximately 15 minutes walk from the CBD or 5 minutes by car. I had the pleasure of staying in the Grand Ballroom suite and I was blown away by all the regal original fixtures of yesteryear but with all the modern comforts to create a haven of absolute relaxation and style. The ‘no reception’ concept is just fantastic. Very discreet and kind of James Bond Esque as you drive into the driveway and enter your unique code, the gate responds by swinging dramatically open to allow you to pass through and swiftly shuts again ensuring your absolute privacy amongst the gardens of the old Hatherley Mansion. Breakfast is awaiting you in the fridge in the morning with treats from local providore Alps and Amici. I have to say it was the best continental breakfast ever and it was my first port of call after checking out to go and purchase some of that ‘to die for’ muesli and yoghurt! If you are used to a more ‘up market’ style of travel and are struggling to find anything online in Launceston. Book Hatherley. I cannot recommend it highly enough!
A wonderful, sumptuous place to relax and unwind. la petite chambre Matisse is a lovely retreat – thanks for the experience.
What a fabulous unexpected surprise in the heart of Launceston. Especially the wonderful outdoor bath making this a haven in the centre of the city. Well done – we will be back. Many thanks.
Thankyou so much for a wonderful stay in the Ballroom. It is a beautiful suite and the attention to detail was impeccable. It was great to meet with you Rebecca – thankyou for the tour. Breakfast was amazing!! Thanks again, we will be sure to return.
A wonderful surprise as I step through the gate. Who doesn’t love a bathtub out on the deck? I found it rather hard to roll out of of this comfy, soft, cosy, warm bed to go out and explore Tasmania. But then I realised there was that delicious breakfast waiting for me…my one reason to literally roll out of bed. The turntable singing out The Beatles album was a superb touch as I got ready, ate my breakfast and sipped my morning coffee as I listened to birds chirping in the background. Thank you for sharing this tranquility with me!
Thankyou Rebecca! I’m sitting on the balcony as I write this…A beautiful view across Launceston which is full of spring, such a beautiful time of year to enjoy this state. Your Ballroom was beautiful and suited us to a tee! We wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy the beautiful garden. Congratulations for creating an amazing place for us travellers to experience.
A truly divine place to stay. Thank you Rebecca.
