A great place to stay in a large hose. Not the normal hotel at all. Convenient for local restaurants and walks. Breakfast adequate but no hot food. An honesty bar provides your drinks as manager does not live on the premises. Left to your own devices at night but system seems to work. Situated in lovely grounds and friendly staff.

The rooms are lovely. Very impressive. Walking distance to Hamers Bar and Grill an excellent place for dinner. Honesty Bar, an honest way to drink and pay. Breakfast was a small spread of ready made stuff. Nothing fresh. One can't even get eggs. Hence just the 4 stars. One of the ladies handling breakfast was not too pleased to see...

We were met by the charming manager who was having quite a tough day, a mix up with rooms... but who could not have been more welcoming and friendly. We had read the Lonely Planet Guide (updated in 2015) which promised a fine wine cellar and a good restaurant, sadly long gone - five years ago! While the architecture of...

Upon arrival there was a double mix-up with our room but then we finally got our booked spa-suite which was charming with a fireplace and beautiful view into the lush garden. The manager was very friendly and helpful and we enjoyed our stay very much. The breakfast is kept quite simple and there is some room for improvement regarding the...

We loved our stay at Franklin Manor. It is a beautiful old house with gorgeous gardens and such a great atmosphere. We sat and chatted with guests in the lounge, fire lit, wine in hand. There is and honesty bar, The host/manager was so lovely and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. I loved it here.

This wonderful property is reminiscent, both inside and out, of a lovely English country inn. With some attention to detail, it could be quite outstanding. We received a warm welcome upon arrival and were shown around the interior of this 19th century building. At about 570 square feet, our room was spacious and pleasant and afforded views over rhododendron shrubs,...

25 years ago we stayed at the Franklin Manor during our honeymoon around Tasmania. 25 years later, it was still charming and a delight. Changes had occurred, cooked breakfast and dinner weren't available and since our honeymoon the spa rooms have reduced their spas from huge corner size to standard size, however the staff was lovely, very helpful and available...

Our experience at this property was excellent. Great breakfast, comfortable rooms and beds, excellent customer service and super location. The only complaint was poor wi-fi, unfortunately it's a necessary evil so although we would have liked to not have needed it - we did.

We arrived after 6pm and did not realise that we had to inform the reception. Thankfully, the staff had left the keys at the door so we could let ourselves in. The hotel was very beautiful. As we stayed in December, there were Christmas decorations which made the first floor of the hotel very cosy. There were no lifts so...

Don't know whether we punished for cancelling one of our nights at this hotel, but we were given a rather odd room just behind the reception desk where we could hear everything that went on. The hotel had definitely seen better days and seemed to date from the late 50s in the way it was operated - definitely a guest...
