Strahan get away

Franklin Manor was a home away from home in a B&B style. Breakfast was more than just a continental breakfast. Hosts extremely friendly and helpful. Walking distance to Strahan ferry terminal and rail station.

Great start to our Tassie holiday

On arrival, we were warmly greeted by Christine. We were given a tour of the manor which included two lovely sitting areas, spacious dining rooms for breakfast and a bar with honour system. Freshly made Blueberry Muffins were also on offer. Our room was lovely. Very nicely styled with great amenities. WiFi worked best in the front room. This provided the opportunity to chat with other guests. The continental breakfast on offer was delicious. Franklin Manor is just a short stroll to the Gordon River cruises.

Fantastic Stay in Strahan

We were in a group of seven and the owners of Franklin Manor treated us all as a family staying in their home. This is the place to stay in Strahan without a doubt. Just a beautiful place including one of the best continental breakfasts we have had. Rooms are roomy, warm, cosy and clean. Only a short walk to the cruises for the harbor and Gorden River

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.

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.
