We stayed 2 nights at this delightful house and could not have been happier. We were welcomed by Lincoln and made to feel so at home. Lovely peaceful room with very comfortable bed. Breakfast included served again by Lincoln. So friendly and obviously loves hat he does.

Such a lovely surprise to be welcomed by Licholm, he gave us the history of the Manor and was only too happy to assist us in anyway. The breakfast was amazing as was the service. Great location, only a short easy walk to the centre of town. Highly Recommend.

The house is truly lovely with amazing character. Our room was very comfortable and the bed was like sleeping on a cloud. The staff were very friendly and helpful - especially Lincoln who was just delightful. We would definitely stay here again next time we’re in Strahan.

This is a historic house on The Esplanade in Strahan. It is a large, old guesthouse. It has an odour that lets you know it is old. The staff are friendly. Through the front door you encounter the check-in desk and a pleasant seating area with views into the garden. There are staircases leading up to the various guest rooms. The house has high ceilings and creaky staircases and floorboards. The rooms a quite spacious and the bed is comfortable. There is a small flatscreen TV, a fridge, tea and coffee-making facilities. The bathroom consisted of a normal-sized bath (with spa jets) with a shower curtain… not really what you think about when you book a room with a spa bath. It had a $10 Bunnings shower head and the hot water tap handle kept falling off. Downstairs, there was large dining room with lovely views into the garden. Breakfast consisted of a variety of cereals, yoghurt, stewed fruit, toast (3 types of bread) with spreads (eg.honey, jam) and brewed coffee or hot water for tea. We looked at other accommodation in Strahan and Franklin Manor seemed to be better than most, but compared to other places we have stayed it was average at best.

Chris and Leanne hosted a 50th birthday party for me and my friends. They were the most wonderful hosts. The food was delicious and Chris was the best barman. Their hospitality went above and beyond. I would recommend them to anyone who wants a beautiful place to stay or a venue for a special occasion. Nothing was a trouble for them and they made my day the best it could be. The house is gorgeous. Thank you.
