Hatherley House is a historic Victorian Italianate homestead which has been converted to a chic boutique 5 Star hotel, with the addition of ensuite bathrooms to every room except the former kitchen and Drawing Room which retained their original function.
New bathrooms are inserted in a radical yet visually sympathetic departure from traditional formats. There are two types, the freestanding glass lined ceiling element, and, where smaller existing rooms could be utilized, they have been given a secret pivoting door and a luxurious stainless steel, white tile and mirrored interior.
