Very accommodating in plush surroundings this sumptuous B & B excels. Lovely clean well appointed spacious rooms will make your stay enjoyable. Breakfast poached eggs were a treat. Bottled wine is available for purchase.

We stayed at Franklin Manor on the final leg of our 10 day Tassie trip. Christine and Craig were warm and friendly hosts from the time of check in to check out. We had a wonderfully cosie room (albeit a bit tight for space with the King Bed) but with a good sized onsuite bathroom with loads of storage. Each... More

This is a beautiful home and we enjoyed our 2 night stay immensely. The hosts are very accomplished at running B & B's making you feel very welcome right from the start to end. Our room was spacious, clean and thoughtfully decorated. The breakfasts are delicious! It really is a special place to stay.

We had the pleasure of staying at the Franklin Manor, when in Strahan early January 2016 on our Tasmanian tour. This small hotel/bed and breakfast oozes charm and the hosts are very friendly and accommodating. It was an absolute pleasure and something different. As it is originally just a house, it is quite a quirky layout and you can hear... More

The Franklin Manor is a gorgeous old building only a lovely 10 minute walk to the tourist hub of Strahan. The hosts are very professional with a great touch of sophistication that matches the grandness of the surroundings. Great for couples wanting a manor experience. Room was very comfortable and breakfast was just ideal. We would definitely stay again.

Lovely welcome from very friendly couple running the B&B - lots of information provided - nice breakfast - no wifi in the rooms but available downstairs - honesty bar - pleasent stay. Didn't find Strahan itself that much of a draw compared to some other venues. Only word of warning - if you don't enjoy English style pantomimes don't go... More

We had a delightful 2 night stay at Franklin Manor. Friendly and helpful hosts, gracious home and gardens, immaculate room and generous breakfasts. Our hosts made recommendations about places to see and best places to eat - even made our dinner reservation. Can't recommend highly enough.

Franklin Manor is a lovely old house in a great location. It's just a pretty 5 - 10 minute walk to the harbour, and the people that run it are so sweet. They were incredibly friendly and helpful without being all up in our grill like it can be at some B&Bs. They pointed out the local sights and gave... More

We spent 2 nights at this beautiful B & B whilst visiting our daughter in Strahan. We were met by the owners with welcoming smiles and enthusiasm like we were their first ever guests. We were taken for a tour of the beautifully furnished home and shown to our room. It was lovely in its decor, well appointed and an... More

Lovely rooms, comfortable bed , fresh flowers in your room, and no end of help as what to see or where to eat in this quaint town of Strahan on the West Coast of Tasmania.
