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.

Amazing! Thankyou for a wonderful experience. Beautiful room, beautiful food. Thanks for the small touches – made celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary extra special.
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!
Thankyou for a lovely stay Rebecca. Lovely rooms.
A. Hobart MONA and Taste of Tasmania B. Wineglass bay C. Bay of Fires D. Bridestowe Lavender Farm …and last but not least Heavenly Birrell Collection!!!
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.
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!
“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!
Dear Jack and Rebecca Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality and ongoing support of arts and culture in Tasmania. It’s always a pleasure to catch up with you both and your beautiful girls in this wonderful space you have created.
Thanks for having us. Nice and comfy! Cheers, Matt and Cindy.
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.
