“A really excellent small hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2013

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.

Was recommended this stay by my boss who had his honeymoon here 20 years ago. The staff are excellent and friendly. The rooms were cosy and clean. It is only a short stay from the Gordon River Cruise which worked well for us. Would definitely stay again. They also have an honour system for using the bar which is a nice touch.

Very comfortable, lovely host and nice breakfast. The manor is close to the town, about a 10 minute walk to the Gordon River cruise boat. Ask about the rainforest stroll to the waterfall behind People's Park, where we saw platypus.

Strahan feels like a remote fishing village beyond the frontier. It has a magical ambiance providing remarkable insight into the remote West Coast of Tasmania. It should be on every travellers' agenda when visiting Tasmania.

We were delighted to discover Franklin Manor and experience part of the history of Strahan. It is a grand old residence turned into a guest house with several spacious ground floor areas to relax. We particulary enjoyed the gardens. It is a short walk from the town.

The rooms were very comfortable and quiet with all the necessary accessories. Breakfast was included in the charge and we enjoyed the array of food available.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. Made our stay very enjoyable and we would highly recommend as a place to stay in Strahan.
