Brilliant. Exquisite renovation of 1890s gem. Stunning views, gorgeous apartment, heated lap pool, midnight game of pool, little private nooks everywhere. And little touches that respect the intelligence of guests, like kitchen, garden BBQ, micro gym. Fabulous 10/10. Couldn't stay longer bcoz someone booked out whole place for a month. Don't blame them!

Travelling to Brisbane had me searching for weeks but nothing grabbed me. Finally came across Franklin Villa and booked it immediately. 3 ladies in our early 30s meeting for a catch up and this place was perfect. Easy to drive there. Parking on street was ample and always had a spot available over the weekend. I booked directly on the... More

To be honest, I'm still at Franklin Villa until tomorrow but I love the place so much I've decided to give it a full 5 stars right away. First up, the location is handy to all the attractions of West End; you're only a 5 minute stroll from cafes and shops on Boundary St. Next, the room (we have the... More

We booked this very last minute, and when we arrived the management didn't even know we were booked(not their fault) Cabin was nice, was a but disappointing we couldn't use the mezzanine floor. Place was quirky , but the girlfriend loved it, which is the important part. very clean, and cute, Will stay there again,

I have never been so cold in my entire life, and I have camped in a tent in Iceland! My partner and I planned a romantic weekend away, which included a 1 night stay at Franklin Villa. We chose the villa based on the location, with easy walking to the West End or South Bank, and from the photographs of... More

My daughter and I stayed in the White Room at Franklin Villa last night as an early Mother's Day treat and had an awesome time. Franklin Villa is in an excellent location, within easy walking distance to all the eateries in West End which we indulged in for Saturday lunch, dinner and Sunday morning breakfast.

Undoubtedly the most unusual place we've ever stayed in. It felt like going back in time but with an element of the Adams Family residence!! Loved it but it reminded us that we would could never live in an old property! I chose it for our 3 night stay at the end of a 5 week tour of NZ &... More

My husband and I stayed at Franklin Villa in October during the week. This place has loads of character and I wished that we had more time to look around the property but we were only there for one night and arrived late in afternoon and left very early the next morning. Rooms were spacious and clean with tea making... More
