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

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.
