The Manor is expertly managed and the hosts, Christine and Craig, go out of their way to be helpful and welcoming. A satisfactory continental breakfast is offered in the pleasant ambience of the dining spaces. The...

From the moment we staggered in after a long drive in the rain to the moment we left we were made to feel like friends or family. In no time at all Christine had us booked in to the best restaurant in town with a window seat and Craig had helped me select a couple of bottles of Tasmanian wine....

This was a lovely boutique hotel. It has a lot of character. We were warmly welcomed by the proprietor, who lives in the house, and shown to our room. There were nice little touches - sprigs of foliage on bed, in toilet roll and in bathroom, homemade biscuits in the room and tea/coffee making facilities in the room. We were...

Beside the warmly welcome was the Franklin Manor the perfect example of the renovation of an old house in to a modern B&B without losing the original character of the house. So you will stay in a room with all the modern comfort, but in lovely setting. The continental breakfast buffet is generous and we loved the greek style yogurt....

We stayed at the Franklin Manor this weekend just gone. 21/02/14 to 22/02/14. It is an amazing place the owners Christine & Craig were lovely. Craig came & picked us up from the airport , as we could not get in touch with a taxi. So that service was above & beyond. On the drive back he filled us in...

This B&B has some real character and very friendly and helpful managers. The rooms were furnished to a high standard and the gardens were beautiful. The inclusive breakfast was very good albeit with no cooked element. The walk to Strahan "centre" was only 10 minutes or so. The residence is also next to a forest/river walk which was very pleasant...

I stayed at Franklin Manor whilst stopping by in Strahan. We received a very friendly welcome from one of the owners who has obviously put a lot of time and effort into this place. The building itself is beautiful and the owner obviously has a lot of pride in it. We chose to enjoy some wine that you can help...
