We booked at the last minute. I was surprised that Franklin Manor is ranked only 4th out of 5 in Strahan, but then only a couple of people have reviewed it. I am delighted we stayed here. Franklin Manor is a gracious old house with an interesting history, set in lovely gardens on the Esplanade in Strahan. I normally prefer to stay in hotels with more anonymity than most B&Bs (I'm not normally sociable enough for small B&Bs), so I was pleased that Franklin Manor had more the feel of a small hotel where the guests can be left alone or could socialize if they want to. There were comfortable seating areas and a cosy wine area with an honor system. Our room was fresh, spotless, comfortable, graciously furnished, overlooking the gardens. It was also amazingly quiet. Would definitely stay there again.
