Decadent luxury in an art gallery?

Cons: Nothing
We were fortunate to stay in The Muse, a magnificent and luxurious haven in Launceston. The walls are a canvas for an eclectic range of art pieces. The architecture award winning design is something you would expect in a high end hotel in London or New York. The fittings and furnishings were attractive and functional. You must try the magnificent stone bath on the balcony. Even in the rain, in the middle of winter, it was truly decadent. what a find!

Flawless Escape in the City

Twelve years to the day we headed back to Hatherley on our wedding anniversary. The name has changed a bit, but the quality of the accommodation has only improved! Set in a beautiful garden, with an enormous outside but private stone bath, our room was very well appointed, with cool touches like a retro record player, complimentary movies and a funky bathroom all adding to the enjoyment. This would have to be one of the very best holiday escape options in all of Tasmania.

Pros: Everything was fabulous, from the welcome decanter of Sherry to the amazing room. A lot of thought has gone into the detail. Loved having a record player in the room and who wouldn't love a bath on the verandah with a glass of amazing Tasmanian bubbles.
Cons: There was nothing we didn't like about this hotel. Everything wa swell thought out.
Location: Loacation wasa little further from the CBD than we thought but the walk gave us the chance to explore further than we would have been in the centre

Fantastic place to impress a lady that has travelled with you a lot. My wife was very impressed with my choice of lodging, secluded, neat, great bath on deck. Only complaint we had was bath stone was extremely cold and absorbed all the heat from water. But it was at 10pm on a freezing night. Fantastic place.

Private and close to city centre

Private setting, with views from the enclosed balcony on upstairs unit{Ballroom}. Breakfast was superb - a fruit compote, yoghurt & muesli along with toast all from local suppliers. The unit beautifully blended the old & new, complete with artwork, and provided a very comfortable stay.

Beautiful Abode

Pros: Maintenance issues - bathroom tap handle didn't quite work well. Toaster button didn't stay down and had to be held. Apple tv didnt work in the morn
Such a relaxing and beautiful space! I felt right so comfortable and right at home, Very special! The beauty is in the detail and small touches.
