We only stayed one night but thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Very cosy with fireplace going in sitting area. We had a ground floor room which was right beside the front door. Very handy to everything. Craig and Christine are great hosts. Continental brekky with home made goodies was nice. Will be back.

We stayed at Franklin Manor for 2 nights. Our room was comfortable and the house had a happy feel to it. Lovely sitting room areas for guests to relax in. There is an honour system bar as well. Nice continental breakfast. Would definitely stay here again if we return to Strahan.

Really nice house with friendly and very helpful owners. Our room (5A) was a little small, it was fine for us but just saying, it wasn't the biggest room we stayed in whilst on our travels through Tassie. Open fire in the cosy sitting room was a good hit. Breakfast was a solid continental offering. Would recommend staying here and...

From the moment of booking you know this place is different. Christine runs a welcoming ship- and with her husband work amazingly hard to ensure all guests feel at home. We had a lovely room, not huge but plenty for a three night stay. Everything was clean and had its place. Two downstairs lounges are available for guests to sit...

There are flowers on the bedside table, by the TV and tucked into a little pocket in the...

We visited for two nights. Our room was large and clean with a generous supply of bath linen decorated with a good mix of vintage style and modern fittings. The bedroom heater on its own was probably not enough to deal with the cold snap while we were in Strahan but the bed has an electric blanket. The property itself...
