“Devine, but....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2010

We loved the Red Feather Inn...but - we had a meal there, and it was really over priced for what we got, and compared with the rest of Tasmania. We arrived at the Red Feather at 3pm....it was already getting dark due to rotton weather, and we were tired after a long day of travelling. Our greeting was " Check- In is at 4pm or after - go away, and come back then...."...well, we drove off with our friends, and wondered is this Fawlty Towers with a twist???? We arrived back at 4:10pm, and were told dinner is at 6pm, be there!!! OK, we showered and made sure we were early for dinner...at $85 a head, the 4 of us decided this must be really special, as we had been dining around Tasmania at $300 for 4 of us, and had exquisite wines with our 3 course dinners....wrong! Dinner here was beautifully cooked, with average wines, but hardly special. However - the accommodation is to die for. Everything was spotlessly clean, with beautiful antiques, gorgeous decor, soft beds, log fires, a CD and DVDlibrary......it was heaven. I hope my photos show that....Avoid the overpriced dinner, and enjoy the ambiance of your room..we stayed in the Library Suite.

My husband and I stayed at the Red Feather Inn for just one night at the end of our Tassie holiday. Definately wished we could have stayed longer. We stayed in the Attic - gorgeous combination of the rustic and the modern with a giant bath! Lee was fantastic, booking us into a local restaurant, the Black Cow for dinner and getting the balance right between great service and giving us our space. Loved the brekki basket the next morning. Would absolutely stay again when we next go to Tassie - a great tranquil escape.

This place is divine! Beautiful gardens, great hosts and the most exceptional rooms. We loved our one night at Red Feather. On our arrival we checked into the Red Feather room and loved the cottage feel to the room and the bathroom was stunning. It is a beautiful renovation, the attention to detail is gorgeous. We had dinner at the Inn that night with the other couples that were staying there. It was lovely, although a little bit expensive for me. The great staff delivered a yummy breakfast hamper for us to enjoy in our room in the morning and the rest of the time we just relaxed. So much nicer than staying in inner city Launnie. It is expensive but was a nice treat. There is also a cooking school there which I would be keen to go to too!

We had a wonderful 3 nights in this beautiful little 1840s Georgian coaching inn that was restored a couple of years ago. The rooms are charming and comfortable and you are supplied with a breakfast basket each day. The Inn has wonderful gardens. The situation is terrific - off the highway so it is quiet at night and near Launceston and other attractions in the area.
We ate in Launceston on 2 nights - recommend Black Cow but thought StillWater was overrated and overpriced. The last night the manager and chef, Lee, cooked for us - best meal of the trip.
