The Ballroom with French doors, high ceilings, spectacular Italianate marble fireplace and original ornate gilt mirror was once the ballroom of Hatherley House, an 1830’s grand home listed on the National Estate Register.
The room has been re-crafted to retain all its original heritage magnificence and style but at the same time transformed into lavish, breathtakingly contemporary art accommodation. The Ballroom Suite features artwork inspired by contemporary dance company Tasdance performing ‘Heart Matters’ choreographed by Graeme Murphy and Chrissie Parrott.
Self contained and equipped with a kitchenette and local breakfast provisions. Enjoy the sumptuous modern translucent glass bathroom with spa. Relax on your private balcony, overlooking Ben Lomond mountain and the sheer expanse of Hatherley’s rich and evocative english parkland gardens. Access to this suite is via stairs.

Serenity! Thanks so much for a wonderfully appointed room with old world charm and every comfort. Very relaxing and a lovely quiet location. Thoroughly delightful.
Such a beautiful place to spend our wedding night. Every part of our stay was amazing and we will definitely be back in the future. Thank you for 2 great nights!
The ultimate art-infused weekend away…Dynamic Launceston couple Jack and Rebecca Birrell, an architect and graphic designer respectively, have breathed new life into the National Estate-registered High St guesthouse, boldy combining colonial and contemporary design.
A delightful room and even better hospitality! Love the bathroom, wish I could have used it more! Thanks Rebecca!
Thankyou so much 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.
A beautiful stay in the best and only place to stay in Launceston. Love the outdoor bath…decadently bathed 3x in 12 hours! Also must comment on the Ballroom where I have stayed numerous times. Gorgeously furnished and especially love the Tasdance photos…a reminder that Graeme Murphy the famous choreographer is a hometown boy. PS I was the first Asian in the Australian Ballet and Graeme choreographed his first three act ballet on me…Papillon! See you next year.
A wonderful day at Agfest … cows, tractors and horses…then swapping our blunnies and jeans for elegant evening wear to relax and recover in the sumptuous Ballroom – what a treat to enjoy such beautiful surroundings! Thank you so much!
We were delighted we chose to stay here!
WOW, what can we say about our stay? We had the most relaxing stay. Enjoyed the quiet and luxury of the property. Also wished we had more days to see this beautiful state.
Thank you for 3 wonderful days and nights to reconnect with each other. 37 years later and I still ‘like him’ – a lot. Your home is magnificent, Thank you for sharing.
