Highly recommended. A very chic new place to stay in Tasmania

One of Launceston’s culinary landmarks, the 1830s flour mill that has housed award-winning eatery Stillwater for almost two decades, is now also a mini luxury hotel. 

Farewell to Stillwater's providore and art gallery and hello to Stillwater Seven, which is billed as "a uniquely indulgent accommodation experience". 



The seven striking rooms all have waterfront views and their own style. 

Each room features locally designed and produced furniture, a luxury Tasmanian pantry and even locally sourced toiletries, as well as access to the private guest bar. 

Early in the morning guests are welcome to wander down into the restaurant to chat with the chef and see what is coming out of the oven. 

Stillwater developer and mill owner Rod Ascui said: “This exciting project, two years in the planning and building, has allowed the Mill to become whole again rather than three disparate businesses. 

"It was crying out for this integration and now as a boutique style inn all about the Tasmanian food experience it has come together beautifully…it really is a ‘restaurant with rooms’.”



In-room features include king beds and king pillows, well-stocked pantries, Netflix and  Spotify, Lentara Olive Grove toiletry products and spa quality 100% cotton towelling, as well as free wifi and USB bedside charging ports. 

An indulgent Stillwater breakfast is included in the tariff, as is parking and access to a guest lounge. 

Stillwater Seven is a short walk from both Cataract Gorge and the city centre. For bookings/info for Stillwater Restaurant and Seven rooms go to www.stillwater.com.au

#UPDATE I stayed at Stillwater Seven this weekend - and it sets a new standard for boutique accommodation in Tasmania.

There was a very well made G+T at check-in. 

Aromas of a fresh, warm sourdough loaf and local butter greeted me on arrival in my room, which I slathered with local chicken liver pate from the fridge for supper, partnered by a half bottle of Spring Vale Pinot Noir from the impressive mini bar.

The wifi worked well, the bed was super comfy and the TV was high-tech enough to briefly baffle my brain. Staff were impeccable; this is Stillwater, after all. Highly recommended.
