A lovely place to start our honeymoon in Tasmania. This room provided us with such joy as we were never bored with looking at the furnishings and fixtures. Such attention to detail pleased us very much. A relaxing and comfortable stay. Many thanks for the special gift on arrival, it has made our stay that much more wonderful. We are excited for the next time, we believe this to be a jewel in Australia’s accommodation scene. Thank you all very much PS the heated floor was a great touch!
The oasis The theatre in the garden all so…. muy bien!

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.
Driving around Tasmania has been full of beauty and surprises. La Petite Chambre Matisse has been one of them – and also unique. To enjoy its ambience, comfort and to be able to leave a little piece of us behind ‘in the colouring book’ makes this place memorable. PS exceptional breakfast – loved it!
A wonderful, sumptuous place to relax and unwind. la petite chambre Matisse is a lovely retreat – thanks for the experience.
