Our hosts Christine and Craig were very welcoming and charming and run this beautiful old harbour master's house with great efficiency. There are two guest lounges with roaring (much needed) fires with magazines and books available. One night we self-catered for dinner and ate in front of the fire on crockery provided by Christine. We spent 2 nights in an...

Christine and Craig are the very professional and helpful managers of Franklin Manor. On check in, we were given a tour of the lovely breakfast room and two impressive guest lounges with newspapers and magazines. In addition, a bar area offered bottles of wine on an honour system, and good stemware which could be borrowed for one’s own wines. Our...

We stayed at this wonderful colonial house by the bay that serves as a bed and breakfast with room for 12 guests. The house—originally called "Moana"— was built by a Captain Miles in the 1800's, who was a seafarer involved in the shipping industry. The construction was a pre-fabrication where portions were built in Hobart, then shipped to Strahan to...

Hubby & I stayed here for 2 nights, staff very friendly and informative. Rooms very clean but bed quite hard & uncomfortable. Searched high & low around Strahan village for somewhere to eat breakfast, after much searching finally found Molly's Cafe open ,which we enjoyed. For lunch, as it was a very wet day, thought a nice counter meal at...

We stayed for two nights at Franklin Manor and found it to be of a high standard. Our immaculate room was cosy, with lovely touches such as fresh floral arrangements, homemade biscuits and a comfortable bed allowing for a great nights sleep.

Christine was a wonderful host and we were made to feel very welcome. She assisted us with our dinner and cruise bookings. Our room was lovely and clean. Continental breakfast was served in the formal dining room. We expected Miss Maple to walk in at any moment. Its walking distance to all the sights of Strahan. Highly recommend staying here.

My wife and I are not big fans of B&Bs but decided to try Franklin Manor based on past reviews and the lack of hotels in Strahan. What a great B&B!! The location is excellent (within walking distance of the harbour); the building is magnificient, particulary the two lounges complete with fire places: the breakfast is one of the best...
