Is there a Reception?
Hatherley Birrell Collection operates keyless entry, with no need to check-in or check-out in the traditional sense. You will be emailed a personal code for access to the property prior to your arrival. If you have not received your code within a week of your arrival please contact us.
While there is no reception area, Jack and Rebecca Birrell operate their design business and live at the Hatherley House site, so someone is always close by and available for guests, along with a friendly Manager to meet and greet during office hours.
Due to the unique characteristics of century old buildings, some suites have limited access. Ballroom access is via stairs.
Why are there two different addresses?
We have two locations.
At 43 High Street:
The Ballroom, la petite chambre Matisse, Magnolia Garden Pavilion, The Muse Garden Pavilion
At 106 Tamar Street:
Teahouse City Apartment
Are there communal areas?
Hatherley Birrell Collection respects that our guests value their privacy, and each guest room has it’s own outdoor space. Jack and Rebecca have restored the main house to it’s original use as a private residence, where they live with their two children, cats and dog.
Is there parking available?
Both sites have off street parking available free of charge.
What time is check-in and check-out?
Check-in time is 2.00pm and check-out time is 10.00am. If you would like to ask about an early check-in or late check-out please contact us, we may be able to offer these, although it is dependant on other bookings.
Is the property non-smoking?
In the interests of the health and safety of our guests, all the Hatherley Birrell Collection properties are non smoking.
Is the property suitable for families?
Hatherley Birrell Collection is happy to accommodate children over the age of 12.

Had a lovely time once more….Loved it here…till next time!
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.
It was great to stay at The Muse. Had a fantastic nights sleep followed by a nice breakfast to set us up well for a hike at Cradle Mountain. We had an awesome dinner at Geronimo’s.
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.
Thankyou Rebecca for the finale to our week long 25th wedding anniversary celebration exploring the treasures of Tasmania! Magnolia was a magnificent last night experience!! Congratulations on your exquisite accommodation options!! Best wishes and warm regards.
A truly divine place to stay. Thankyou Rebecca
Thankyou for such a wonderful stay! From the outdoor bath under the stars, the quirky art decoration, comfort and stunning sunrise over the garden, the place had a magical feel, good effect and was most enjoyable! Lovely breakfast, and lovely touch to have a roof window over the bed to look at the stars! A truly special place filled with character and to be highly recommended!
Thankyou Rebecca! I’m sitting on the balcony as I write this…A beautiful view across Launceston which is full of spring, such a beautiful time of year to enjoy this state. Your Ballroom was beautiful and suited us to a tee! We wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy the beautiful garden. Congratulations for creating an amazing place for us travellers to experience.
“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.”
What an amazing room! The special touches in the place are just amazing – the bathroom walls, the complimentary port was great, the swivel chairs and the bath and more! Just loved it.
