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.

Thank you for a beautiful stay in a very special place. It was a wonderful way to end our travels in the picturesque Tasmania. We will certainly be recommending this very special accommodation to anyone who is coming to Launceston and we hope to be back one day.
Thankyou for a lovely stay Rebecca. Lovely rooms.
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 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.
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.
Father and son travelling in Tasmania. Wonderful places, vineyards and golf! Lovely restaurants (pierre’s) and mainly kindness. The Ballroom at Hatherley Birrell was AMAZING! We are living in Belgium, at the opposite of the world but we will come back!
I don’t remember ever having stayed anywhere as impeccably, uniquely, beautifully, painstakingly and lavishly/sumptuously ( I could go on!) decorated and designed. Thankyou for making me feel so very welcome, and for the art tour…I’m awed at your collection! My apologies though I had a glass of your lovely tawny port…and finished it – sorry! Anyway, very much hope to see you again in the future and that the articles in ‘Lost At Eminor’ will be good for biz.

A lovely interlude – enjoyed the serenity and comfort very much – thank you for the care and thought you have put into providing this place
Excited to find Hatherley Birrell Collection when searching the web for Launceston sleepover – and not disappointed on arrival to find such a lovely house to share in an interesting part of this city. Thankyou and Good luck with this venture.
