Red Feather Inn
In 1843 the Red Feather Inn was a welcome sight at the end of a full day’s coach travel on the road from Launceston. More than 165 years later, the travel time is only 15 minutes and the inn has been reborn as an exquisitely indulgent French Provincial hotel. Its plain Georgian facade, built to last by convict labour, is unchanged but behind it the suites will transport you to summer in Provence – you can almost smell the lavender. There are two apartments and two deluxe rooms, and they are all gorgeous. The decor is a soothing palette of cream and white, with fine fabrics and luxuriously decadent features like free-standing deep baths – a far cry from the Georgian austerity outside.
