There are not many fine lodging options in Strahan but from all those available, Franklin Manor is the best choice for good comfort and overall value. It is located away from the main drag but it takes no more than 15 minutes to walk to all of the restaurants and attractions that Strahan has to offer. Franklin Manor is a...

A great place to stay in a large hose. Not the normal hotel at all. Convenient for local restaurants and walks. Breakfast adequate but no hot food. An honesty bar provides your drinks as manager does not live on the premises. Left to your own devices at night but system seems to work. Situated in lovely grounds and friendly staff.

The rooms are lovely. Very impressive. Walking distance to Hamers Bar and Grill an excellent place for dinner. Honesty Bar, an honest way to drink and pay. Breakfast was a small spread of ready made stuff. Nothing fresh. One can't even get eggs. Hence just the 4 stars. One of the ladies handling breakfast was not too pleased to see...

We were met by the charming manager who was having quite a tough day, a mix up with rooms... but who could not have been more welcoming and friendly. We had read the Lonely Planet Guide (updated in 2015) which promised a fine wine cellar and a good restaurant, sadly long gone - five years ago! While the architecture of...

The manager was very friendly and helpful and we enjoyed our stay very much. The breakfast is kept quite simple and there is some room for improvement regarding the...

This wonderful property is reminiscent, both inside and out, of a lovely English country inn. With some attention to detail, it could be quite outstanding. We received a warm welcome upon arrival and were shown around the interior of this 19th century building. At about 570 square feet, our room was spacious and pleasant and afforded views over rhododendron shrubs,...

25 years ago we stayed at the Franklin Manor during our honeymoon around Tasmania. 25 years later, it was still charming and a delight. Changes had occurred, cooked breakfast and dinner weren't available and since our honeymoon the spa rooms have reduced their spas from huge corner size to standard size, however the staff was lovely, very helpful and available...

Our experience at this property was excellent. Great breakfast, comfortable rooms and beds, excellent customer service and super location. The only complaint was poor wi-fi, unfortunately it's a necessary evil so although we would have liked to not have needed it - we did.
