Wonderful place to stay.

We had the best stay here and would definitely recommend it we will certainly come back. We stayed in the library room which was immaculate and beautiful. The bath was a big winner with lovely views over the garden. We loved Dani and Mel who greeted us like family. Thank you for a great experience and let us know when Mel has her baby. xoxoxoxoxo

Lovely inn but no staff and no dinner available

The room was lovely but the restaurant was closed and the breakfast wasn’t great.

Beautiful decor

Beautiful place to stay, a little awkward with a suitcase to get to the attic room.

A really charming B&B

We stayed in the Attic, which was very cute and romantic. The service was faultless, and we were well accommodated. Thanks!

Lovely setting

We stayed 4 nights in The Loft room which is in a separate building to the main house. A spacious bathroom downstairs and bedroom upstairs. A small wooden garden style table and two chairs provided the only alternate seating in the room - a couple of small arm chairs would have made a great difference to comfort. Well finished and clean, and plenty of heating. The windows look out to the beautiful gardens. A sensor light over the stairs provides a blindingly bright light for any nocturnal trips down to the bathroom and unfortunately subjects any other bedroom guests to a disturbing brightness. Staff were helpful and friendly and erred on the side of minimal engagement. We ate in on one night which was nice enough but quite over priced for what we were served. Will stay again, next time in summer when the garden will be in full bloom.

Lovely place with quirky French style.

Lovely rural setting and a beautiful historic building that has been tastefully renovated in a French style. Excellent staff, thanks Nick and Danni, we greatly enjoyed our stay.

Pros: Everything
Location: Launceston, Cateract gorge. A gourmet level IGA supermarket 2 minutes walk up the road.
What an incredible haven the Red Feather is, we enjoyed it in so many ways! As very busy parents of 4 very active children, we feel our stay recharged us on so many fronts. We felt at home from the minute we arrived, the team are warm and hospitable. The Inn is incredible, whilst soaked in history it still has every modern convenience and is warm and toasty on a cold Tasmanian day. The gardens are incredible. We loved the Red Feather Inn so much, it will be the reason we return to Tassie!

Beautiful surrounds with loads of character.

Location: Only stayed one night but enjoyed a detour to Woolmers and Brickendon estates.
The rooms were tastefully decorated and well appointed to meet your needs. The food on offer was great. A relaxing setting to feel indulged.
