An exquisite wilderness retreat in the heart of Tasmania's rugged Wild West.Situated on a hillside on the outskirts of Strahan, a charming little fishing village on Macquarie Harbour.
The accommodation is of two types: Boutique hotel - Fourteen individually decorated rooms in the main hotel have varying configurations and are available in three ranges Standard rooms, Deluxe room with a shower or double bath and Executive room with a spa and open fireplace
The Stables Cottage Apartments - located in the grounds has 4 cottage apartments, to accommodate larger parties.
In addition to the acclaimed restaurant featuring local Tasmanian fare with resident and guest chefs, some of the enjoyable aspects of Franklin Manor include descending the old underground cellar to select your wine, the well stocked Huon Pine bar with its honour system (plus cocktail recipe book and cocktail shaker to ensure it really feels like home). The Guest lounge is a most welcoming spot to sit (fire lit by night, sunny by day) with its plump sofas, and fresh flower arrangements.
Peaceful gardens surround the Manor, with many century old trees including some magnificent rhododendrons imported from China in 1890. A leisurely morning or afternoon tea on the verandah overlooking the gardens with the sound of the birds is a refreshing treat.
