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.

There a a couple of lounge areas with open fires,a wine space and dining room. You are encouraged to make yourself feel at home. Our room was large( although mattress not great) with a king... More

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

Franklin Manor is a very well presented heritage B&B in a great location. We wished that we had stayed two nights instead of one as it was so lovely to stay in. Free wi-fi was a bonus and very much appreciated, we were able to use this in the lobby mainly. Strahan is a very pretty place and we enjoyed... More

On first walking in to the Manor, we were made feel so welcome. Our smiling hosts, John and Jane could not have done more to make us feel wanted. The Heritage aspect was a bonus. We were invited to look over the whole place and told to use the downstairs lounges as we wished. An honour system for the bar... More

Franklin Manor is a lovely house with nice sitting areas. Wifi is free which is a great service offered to guests! (Unlike many Tassie hotels). Bfast is a simple continental buffet - could be better. Rooms are spacious and very old world, as you would expect but nothing particularly special. Parking is an issue as less than 10 spots at... More
