We love the concept, and the attention to detail. (especially the underfloor heating in the bathroom) I hope it’s a great success.
What a beautiful property you have! Coming from Brisbane we don’t see the buildings & colonial architecture you have in this beautiful city. We had a great time and will recommend it to our friends.
“I stayed in la petite chambre Matisse, intrigued by the idea of art, design and accommodation, not knowing quite what to expect. What I found was a unique experience of art and music and beauty and the feeling of a bygone era in a most contemporary way. The interpretation of history and art is exquisitely presented. The welcome and service was warm though not intrusive, and the attention to detail and the modern layouts including the luxury of apple TV music and movies, the glass and stainless steel bathroom with underfloor heating…I could easily get used to this beauty and space. Thankyou Rebecca and Jack for sharing and making this historic home and space with like minded people. Good Luck.”
Loved it all, including Puss and Mink. Thanks for the wonderful experience.
A lovely place to start our honeymoon in Tasmania. This room provided us with such joy as we were never bored with looking at the furnishings and fixtures. Such attention to detail pleased us very much. A relaxing and comfortable stay. Many thanks for the special gift on arrival, it has made our stay that much more wonderful. We are excited for the next time, we believe this to be a jewel in Australia’s accommodation scene. Thank you all very much PS the heated floor was a great touch!
Driving around Tasmania has been full of beauty and surprises. La Petite Chambre Matisse has been one of them – and also unique. To enjoy its ambience, comfort and to be able to leave a little piece of us behind ‘in the colouring book’ makes this place memorable. PS exceptional breakfast – loved it!
Absolutely beautiful accommodation. We will be back to visit again. Thank you.
A most wonderful experience! This place is indeed perfect for two and so comfortable and convenient. The bathroom design is fantastic. We played records, watched the apple TV, lolled in the comfy bed with cups of tea and strolled in the gardens, delighted in the breakfast and had the best sleep ever. Thank you for having such great ideas for accommodation and hospitality. We would love to come back and stay in all the pieces of the collection.
Our time in the Matisse was wonderful! Such a charming accommodation and town, and a delicious breakfast, thank you!!
