We loved everything about Franklin Manor. The couple who own it are just lovely and made us feel very welcome, beautiful rooms with some nice "extra touches" and really nice breakfast. There are 2 large rooms where you can sit and enjoy the exceptional house and surrounds, read or play board games and a bar which is run as an... More

Great room with all necessary amenities close to town centre. Easy walk to restaurants and other Strahan attractions. Staff were very helpful and breakfast was more than ample. Was made very welcome. Highly recommend it.

We stayed 2 nights at the Franklin Manor and really enjoyed our stay. Our room was very comfortable and suitably furnished in keeping with the period of the house. We were extremely well looked after and nothing was too much trouble. It was a short walk to the port where we found several places to eat. The gardens were lovely... More

Our flight was late so we were late arriving at Franklin Manor on Boxing Day. Christine was most warm and friendly, although having to postpone her own dinner to get us settled in. The rooms at the Manor are lovely, spacious and nicely decorated. The ensuites are modern and efficient. Because we arrived just before 8PM Christine advised us that... More

The bed was huge and comfy. Free wi fi in the foyer with the open fire. Breakfast in the dining room was included, the fresh fruit salad was exceptional. A... More

We arrived in Strahan, on Tasmania’s south-west coast, after more than five hours on the road from the nearest airport in Hobart and were certainly in need of some rest and relaxation. We were welcomed and quickly settled in at the Franklin Manor situated on a short hill on the outskirts of the port with views, through trees, to Macquarie... More

Stayed here for one night whilst touring Tasmania. Strahan is an expensive place to stay and eat and Franklin Manor is no exception. The exterior of the property is beautiful and some of the communal areas are pretty well-maintained also (the fire area in the front lobby is an excellent spot to sit and read etc...) - however, the rooms...

Franklin Manor is a beautifully furnished and spacious property with pleasant and welcoming hosts and a quiet location. The rooms were comfortable (thank you for the non-feather pillow in deference to an allergy) and breakfast was pleasant, if basic continental. The hosts' dinner suggestion was also excellent and, happily, we could walk there and back!

What a beautiful space, historical, peaceful and quite majestic. Our hosts were so lovely and inviting. We felt like we had come home as soon as we walked through the door. I highly recommend this accommodation
