Wonderful place to stay

We loved everything about our stay there. Great hosts who were very helpful with local information. The room was very comfortable and the breakfast excellent. There was no hesitation from the manager about mailing an item we left behind to the next place we stayed at on our tour.

Franklin Manor

Great place to stay in Strahan. It's a beautiful old building and the staff are very welcoming & helpful. Only improvement would be to have a full cooked breakfast available rather than just the Continental breakfast.

Rooms clean, cosy, well established, perfect location in town, easy walking to Gordon Rvr cruises, Risby Cove, Bushmans Cafe - facing the harbour. Gardens lush, attractive decore. Parking always taken when returning from local restaurants, parking in bay's avail on street, near entrance. Pleasant hosts, best house in town

Great value for money and really comfortable

Franklin Manor is a wonderful place to stay when in the Strahan area. The Manager is very helpful and friendly, the bed extremely comfortable, the lounges cosy with wood fires. It's a short walk into town for dinner, and the continental breakfast at the Manor is delicious. They cater for food intolerances too. Would definitely recommend and stay again.

Despite the age, the Manor was

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.

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

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.
