Over three nights, everything about Franklin Manor was wonderful but something more has to be said about the hosts, Christine and Craig. Their warmth and genuine interest was such a pleasure. Nothing was too much for them at any time of the day. We experienced other hosts during our Tasmania travels and we simply could not help comparing them with... More

Brilliant place with friendly & engaging managers. I worked with Christine (the manager) for 4 months prior to work through room options for my small group. All arrangements were perfectly executed and stress free (for me - as tour coordinator). My group loved the place - indeed one person has booked for a return visit. Breakfasts were delicious and comprehensive... More

Christine and Craig are perfect hosts in an idyllic setting. We were warmly welcomed and given a tour of this gorgeous old homestead on arrival. Our room was delightful and very very comfortable. Christine's attention to detail (eg. little ferns on the towels) is meticulous and nothing is too much trouble. Two lounge areas enable guests to mingle and have... More

This is one of the best b&b's we've been to. The room was very comfortable, furnished well and cosy warm. The owners were extremely friendly and made us feel so welcome. Breakfast was excellent...a choice of continental or full hot breakfast. An amazing house with a really nice lounge area. Highly recommended! Paul & Nadia (Brisbane)

After 2 nights at Frankin Manor we cannot recommend highly enough. Nothing was too much trouble for the hosts. Fresh flowers in our room plus home made biscuits added to the appeal. If you can, take advantage of the option to have a cooked breakfast. Beautiful. Thank you.

The current owners of Franklin Manor have a good deal of experience in the hospitality business and it shows in the property and the way in which they interact with their guests. We were treated like members of the family from the moment we arrived and enjoyed every moment we spent here. The room was spotless and comfortable with a... More

Franklin Manor was fantastic with new owners. It's is an old, fully restored home from the early settlers period. You get your own room with ensuite but the lounge rooms are communal downstairs. Both have fire places and are perfect to relax, read a book or enjoy a glass of wine. We were a bit on the go so we... More

Our stay at Franklin Manor was just wonderful and I am sure will be one of the highlights of our trip. The house and setting are just stunning and are well kept. From the minute you walk in your hosts make you fell so welcomed and comfortable. They were also keen to assist wherever they could with tour enquiries etc.... More

This is an attractive Victorian property which is a five minute walk away from Strahan centre. Our room on the ground floor was very spacious, if a little bland. The bathroom, also, was very roomy. There is no central heating. Our room had a wall mounted heater which was very efficient and soon warmed up the room. The bathroom was... More

We were a party of two couples and Franklin Manor was perfect for our needs. Large rooms on the ground floor each with comfortable armchairs and a window seat. The bathroom was roomy and the decor very attractive. Jane and John were marvelous hosts, very friendly and helpful, they had the common room fires lit and they were so welcoming.... More
