The most amazing experience ever

"The entire weekend was beyond any expectation my husband and I had. Incredible service, ambience, food. We loved every aspect of this place and the people who provided it."

The Red Feather Inn is a charming collection of historic sandstone buildings built by colonial Georgian architect John Sprunt with convict labour circa 1842. Proprietor Lydia Nettlefold has reinvented the Red Feather Inn and combines classic Georgian architecture with French provincial simplicity and elegance to stunning effect.

Each suite is beautifully appointed overlooking the secluded garden. All feature lovely beds, state-of-the-art freestanding baths with endless hot water, gas log heating and more. Curl up in the sitting room with a book or meet new friends over breakfast in the dining room. The Red Feather Inn offers the ultimate in luxury boutique accommodation.

Lydia's project at the Red Feather Inn and Cooking School has been influenced by her European travels and inspired by her passion for her birthplace, Tasmania. The Red Feather Inn showcases Tasmanian local produce, including Lydia's own farm products and harvest from the vegetable patch!

The Red Feather Inn is centrally located 10 minutes from the heart of Launceston and 15 minutes from the airport. Explore the beauty of the region or snuggle in and enjoy their fully licensed gourmet catering and the very best Tasmanian produce.

  • The building and surrounding gardens felt more French than some of the places I've visited in France. Whilst not close to anything remarkable (easy to get to Launceston or Tamar Valley etc), just the ability to stay somewhere that you can experience a completed Francophile's vision of a 1800's heritage building was a privilege. Wish we had time to experience the cooking school or dinner here.

  • The Red Feather Inn is beautiful! Full stop! The setting is gorgeous and right out of a manor house in England. The decor is meticulously presented with the highest quality products and linen. The hosts are warm and welcoming and put up with our turning up early to everything! Highly recommend it, make sure you eat there and try the cooking school too.

  • This place is beautiful, the rooms spectacular, the food amazing and the hosts Ian and Tanya are just delighful, friendly, helpful and interesting people. We stayed two nights. wasn't nearly enough. Highly recommend the Red Feather Inn.
