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.

We are not big on writing in guest books, so it’s a testament to HBC that we are driven to on this occasion. Whip-smart development. Brava!
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!
Ah, The Ballroom! What an elegant and stylish suite. We’ve been very impressed with Hatherley: a superb mix of the heritage with contemporary. And superb breakfast – loved the fruit bread and the berries! Thanks! let’s hope we’re able to return soon!
Thank you for your hospitality. What a beautiful room! I wish we had more time to enjoy it. Such a great find! The view from our room was beautiful, loved the grounds! Love everything about this place. Deb & Rod.
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.
Amazing! Thanking you for a wonderful experience. Beautiful room, beautiful food. Thanks for the small touches – made celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary extra special.
Hi Rebecca, Thankyou for the awesome room – loved the view, loved the quirky touches & LOVED the food. Thanks too for all of your immediate & caring attention re the wifi problems – a terrific retreat from the real world!
Thank you for a wonderful stay at your beautiful sanctuary. Our entire ‘ Tasmanian Adventure’ was capped by our stay in your Ballroom. We hope we can come back for one more visit before we leave Australia next year. Katie & Garry, QLD.
In your beautiful Ballroom I had a little fantasy. I dreamt of wonder, past memories, things that made me laugh and people who made me cry. In the morning when I woke the music of a distant choir sang to me like angels floating above the convent. Thankyou for your Ballroom of Love.”
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.
