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.
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.

Thanks for having us. Nice and comfy! Cheers, Matt and Cindy.
Thankyou so much for everything! The Muse was perfect for our first night in Tasmania. Definitely made us feel very beautiful. The food was fantastic. The bath was very romantic! and the surrounding very soothing. We will be back again.
What an amazing start to our Tasmania trip! Perfect! The rest of the place has a lot to live up to!
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.
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.
Cute place and great brekky!
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.
We have returned to Hatherley House for our 10 year anniversary and what a lovely room to relax in! We love Tasmania, Launceston and your delightful boutique accommodation. Now to planning our return on our 20th anniversary. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality.
Wow! Thankyou! It’s secluded and beautifully decorated – apple TV great addition!
Beautiful place to stay, close to the city but secluded at the same time, great attention to detail with the ‘goodies’ and the breakfast tray is a very nice touch!! Fantastic, the only place to stay in Launie! Thanks and til next time.
