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! 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!
A beautiful stay in the best and only place to stay in Launceston. Love the outdoor bath…decadently bathed 3x in 12 hours! Also must comment on the Ballroom where I have stayed numerous times. Gorgeously furnished and especially love the Tasdance photos…a reminder that Graeme Murphy the famous choreographer is a hometown boy. PS I was the first Asian in the Australian Ballet and Graeme choreographed his first three act ballet on me…Papillon! See you next year.
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.
“A sensual and captivating experience, living art, living in art, tasting art, seeing and feeling art…The expression of another’s dream shared with others is a way of connecting the beauty in you to the beauty in me…tasting the food cooked by the famous chef in the artful home of the beautiful couple, drinking the Devil’s wine…aaaah, A sigh of joy, thankyou.”
We were delighted we chose to stay here!
Ah, The Ballroom! What an elegant and stylish suite. We’ve been very impressed with Hatherley: a superb mix of the heritage with contemporary. And superb breakfast – loved the fruit bread and the berries! Thanks! let’s hope we’re able to return soon!
A. Hobart MONA and Taste of Tasmania B. Wineglass bay C. Bay of Fires D. Bridestowe Lavender Farm …and last but not least Heavenly Birrell Collection!!!
In your beautiful Ballroom I had a little fantasy. I dreamt of wonder, past memories, things that made me laugh and people who made me cry. In the morning when I woke the music of a distant choir sang to me like angels floating above the convent. Thankyou for your Ballroom of Love.”
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.
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.
