Franklin Manor is a wonderful place to stay in Strahan. The hosts made us feel completely at home and the complimentary breakfast was delicious. We would definitely stay here again if staying in Strahan.

a nice hotel with comfortable rooms, lounges with log fires and super continental breakfast. lovely grounds and close to the bay and park. some facilites such as the room TV could be modernised but overall a comfortable place to stay with helpful staff. river wilderness cruise is a must.

Despite the age, the Manor was very well maintained and showed none of the aging signs usually assocaited with such old buildings. We would stay there again on our next visit.

Was a very good stay in this hotel. Convenient location not far from town and its location had very good surroundings. Staff were very friendly and helpful. WE checked out early in the morning, and because it was before breakfast time, they organised a takeaway breakfast. that was very thoughtful as we had a very long drive to do. breakfast was in a lovely restaraunt and although not a hot breakfast had plenty variety.

We stayed in 5 different places in Tasmania and they were all excellent apart from Franklin Manor. The room needed renovating and felt very dismal, had no flyscreens and there were mosquitos from the pond below our window. The bed however was a good king size and comfortable. General cleanliness was not very good. The breakfast was poor and badly organised. Most of the excursions in Strahan require you to be at the jetty or station by 8.15 but the breakfast didn't start until 7.30, so everyone arrived at once causing a queue at the toasters etc. We also ate in the restaurant one night and found it expensive and not up to the standard of other restaurants in the town, which were cheaper. The owners seemed to leave a lot of the work to the young staff, who were very pleasant, as they seemed to be absent most of the time, even at check-out. This hotel does not deserve its star rating and wouldn't recommend it.

Food is obviously the most important attraction due to the Michelin 2 star chef.

It is a superb hotel. One of the principal delights is the cuisine which is of an international standard.
