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

Franklin Manor is a very attractive building with lots of character. I remember being awestruck when driving past this property 10 years ago when holidaying in Tassie. I never thought it would be in my budget to ever stay overnight. Our welcome from Jane was very warm and obliging. Our room was quite adequate including a couple of arm chairs,... More

Character building with beautiful gardens and next to the Hogarth Falls which are well worth the visit. Friendly and helpful staff. Continental breakfast was adequate and the rooms very clean and comfortable.

Very ordinary breakfast if you expect any more than bread, cereal, yoghurt and fruits. Coffee from a machine is ver ordinary. Also, seems a bit too big for a b&b! House, grounds, managers are very nice though!

First of all, you have to think of the town of Strahan. A very unique town in a unique part of Tasmania, and Franklin Manor fits in with that uniqueness! The Manor is a beautiful historic mansion located in a pretty neighborhood. The hosts, John and Jane, were terrific hosts - kind and accommodating. Our room was comfortable and clean... More

Franklin Manor is located a 10 minute walk from the centre of Strahan which means that it is away from the considerable bustle (and parking problems) of the centre. The walk itself is delightful. As the house has a long history it does mean that the rooms are quite small and, of course, there is no lift which can cause... More

Bed and breakfasts aren't really our thing, but we thought we'd give it a go as there wasn't too many other choices that seemed suitable. Pleasant people and well presented in a good heritage location. Agree with others that the the price of the room was a bit high given what it was. Having said that, Strahan was a very... More
