This is a lovely house and the rooms are great although be aware you will have to lug your luggage up stairs and one set is a bit narrow. The real issue was the first morning when I and 3 other sets of guests got up for breakfast due at 7 before going out to our activities. No one appeared!... More

If you want a super fresh hotel style b&b, look elsewhere. If you want a place filled with memories and ready to leave you with some new ones, then make sure you make a stop here. Yes, it's pokey for a hotel... but it should be! It was once a manor! Which means, it was once a home. And it... More

New managers have just taken over & are doing their best to welcome you. They couldn't do enough to make us feel at home. Room was cozy warm & spacious. Was a bit fresh on the ground floor. Continental breakfast was complimentary. Would be a lovely venue in the future for dinners.

We stayed here for one during our visit to Strahan. Rooms aren't huge but ample for a short stay. Nice cosy fireplace in the lounge area. Franklin Manor is just past the town center and easily found. Would definitely recommend.

Oldish style B & B with small room and stuffy conditions. Mediocre service, For those who do not like 4 or 5 star accommodation. But nice location and walk to local township which is quaint with mediocre eating houses

I agree with the recent review of Franklin Manor. From the moment we arrived til our departure it was a sad, sombre place. Our interactions with staff whilst not unfriendly, weren't particularly engaging. Breakfast was boring and bland. Shame cause it is a lovely old house with lots of potential.

Charming from the outside, I think this BnB's glory days have passed. The common rooms are in quite good condition but we were disappointed with our room. It had a musty smell and dated curtains and bedspread. It wouldn't take much to update them. The bathroom was dated as well. It was a 10-15 minute walk to the centre of... More

Lovely old renovated mansion with very comfortable rooms and amenities. Charming hosts who go out of there way to assist and provide a magnificent breakfast each morning. Close to centre of town and very reasonably priced. Recommended.

The manor house is an excellent B&B, really well appointed and superbly hosted. Its location enables you to walk into town in around 10 minutes and within a couple of minutes drive are the cruise boats, steam trains and the "not to be missed" Ship That Never Was . Although breakfast is continental, there are multiple choices. The property is... More
