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.

Thankyou so much for a wonderful stay in the Ballroom. It is a beautiful suite and the attention to detail was impeccable. Thank you for the tour. Breakfast was amazing!! Thanks again, we will be sure to return.
Tres Chic! Thankyou for the beautiful room, the lovely balcony, the wonderful view and the attention to detail. It’s one of our favourite places and we will definitely be back!
We were delighted we chose to stay here!
Thankyou for such a wonderful stay! We enjoyed a very relaxing break in beautiful surrounds, and would love to return on our next visit to Launceston. Until then, Angus & Elizabeth.
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 for the awesome room – loved the view, loved the quirky touches & loved the food. Thanks for all your immediate and caring attention, a terrific retreat from the real world!
Father and son travelling in Tasmania. Wonderful places, vineyards and golf! Lovely restaurants (pierre’s) and mainly kindness. The Ballroom at Hatherley Birrell was AMAZING! We are living in Belgium, at the opposite of the world but we will come back!
Such a beautiful view and room. Apple TV is a great idea. The bathroom is innovative and the spa bath relaxing. The breakfast provisions were yummy. We would definitely recommend this room to our friends and family!
What an amazing start to our Tasmania trip! Perfect! The rest of the place has a lot to live up to!
