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.

Thankyou for such a wonderful stay! We enjoyed a very relaxing break in beautiful surrounds, and would love to return on our next visit to Launceston.
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 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.
After a challenging round at spectacular Barnbougle Dunes Golf Course we meandered on towards Launceston, Historic Hatherley House awaited us, what a wonderful treat. Old fashioned elegance and grace fused with fabulous luxurious ‘mod cons’ were a perfect mix. It struck me as a quiet and private oasis. We stayed in the Ballroom Suite, its dance theme features a magnificent modern mural. There was plenty of room to dance if the spirit moved you. After a well earned spa, we enjoyed the mountain views with a drink on the balcony before strolling into the city for dinner. The area is known as Launceston’s Rose Bowl and it’s easy to see why. The historic gardens and leafy parks were bursting with colour. Delicious Tassie food and wine were plentiful, everything from quirky cafes to innovative 5 star dining. ‘Pierre’s’ on George St was our pick from many great looking choices. After our stay we were sorry to be leaving Hatherley, it had charmed us with it’s art, architecture and comfort. In a word superb. We’ll be back.
Thankyou for our beautiful room and lovely breakfast. It was a real treat! We are looking forward to returning and staying longer next time!
Such a beautiful view and room. Apple TV is a great idea. The bathroom is innovative and the spa bath relaxing. The breakfast provisions were yummy. We would definitely recommend this room to our friends and family!
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.
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.
A delightful room and even better hospitality! Love the bathroom, wish I could have used it more! Thanks Rebecca!
Thank you! What an absolutely stunning and chic room. I had a very enjoyable stay in Launceston here with Hatherley Birrell. The room is gorgeous and the host kind and hospitable – thank you. I have enjoyed the wine and breakfast. Highly recommend this for a subsequent stay. Had so much fun in Tasmania!
