“Heartwarming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013

My husband and I stayed for one night on the way to Cradle Mountain and I'm so glad we did! Lydia the owner met us and she was so delightful and warm and welcoming. The property is quite simply stunning, very clean, very beautiful and very, very comfortable. Lydia showed us to our beautiful large and well appointed room and arranged for Louis (chef) to make us a welcoming cup of tea and a chat in the cosy dining room.... all part of the 5 star service. We really can't fault this property and can't wait to return with family and freinds. Next time we visit we will endeavour to join the cooking classes run by Louis and his wife. Also looking forward to Theresa excellent breakfasts! Not simply an overnight stay but a genuine Tasmanian experience!

I had a lovely stay here with my dad on a quick visit to Tasmania. beautiful building very nicely renovated. Lovely grounds, nice restaurant. My only problem was that as we were in the Garden Suite and I was sleeping on the fold out bed in the living area. It was very noisy as it was attached to the restaurant. it wouldn't be an issue for people just using the bedroom as my dad never heard any noise. it wouldn't be an issue for people who stay up to a normal hour either- I was particularly tired so went to be early.
beautiful bathroom and kitchenette,, reasonable breakfast basket provided to make ones own lunch.
Didn't go much on Hadspen itself - but the Red Feather is beautiful and great for a night away.

Room Tip: The Garden suite had a fold out sofa in the downstairs living room so perfect for people who are not...

Well Hadspen didn't look all that promising I must say. Perfectly lovely as a suburb/town but not so much as a holiday destination. But the Red Feather Inn is breathtakingly beautiful and atmospheric. You are transported to another world. The decor and attention to detail are outstanding. I would happliy stay here again, hopefully with 12 of my closest friends so we can do a colking class. Staff were lovely.

We have just visited Red Feather Inn at Hadspen Tasmania. We arrived on the Saturday for one of their cooking schools and stayed overnight. The Cooking School was fabulous, we had 14 in our group. Everyone was so lovely and we all really enjoyed it. The visiting Chef Camille was fantastic and she was very engaging and involved all of us in every part of the menu process. After cooking a whole menu we all sat down at a big table and enjoyed the end product of our work. The atmosphere in the cooking group was just so friendly and relaxed even though we had only just met. Just enjoyed the whole day from start to finish. Our stay overnight was just great too the room was superb and the old Inn is just a wonderful old building with such character and warmth. Our breakfast the next morning was so nice as well as we shared it with our fellow Cooking School guests. Overall the Cooking School was fantastic and so was the accommodation. I would highly recommend Red Feather Inn for it's Cooking School or Accommodation or a combination of both. A great weekend.

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!
What a fantastic spot, just how I'd like to think I would present my guest accommodation if I had it! Highly recommend it, make sure you eat there and try the cooking school too.

We had an unforgettable stay at the Red Feather. First off, the inn is beautifully decorated and the property is well maintained (walk around the orchard and vegetable garden in the back to see what will be on your plate!). If I could, I would move in. Or, take the property home with me, decorations included. Visually, everything was perfect. Secondly, our hosts, Ian and Tanya, went above and beyond all expectations. They went out of their way for all the guests and could not have provided service and hospitality. Thirdly, the food was incredible and of the highest quality. On the Friday night that we were there, Ian and Tanya prepared and served us and the other guests (there were 8 of us in total, the inn was full) what can only be described as a wonderful feast. We all started out as strangers, but left as friends after our enjoyable meal (the unlimited wine, attentively poured by Ian, probably aided in this!). My mother and I had an incredible stay here. If I lived in Melbourne, I would make the Red Feather a regular weekend getaway. And don't forget to greet the two, snow white doves in the dovecote out back!

Room Tip: My mother and I shared the Red Feather room but we got to see some of the others. They are all large...
