              Strahan a Visit to Back In Time”

              Host friendliness, location, old world charm

              We visited Strahan to retrace my ancestors past. Franklin Manor was the ideal venue with its Victorian charm, excellent hosts, charming sitting rooms with log fires, books and magazines for browsing. Grand dining room with a very good continental breakfast.....would liked to have had a choice of some hard boiled eggs, croisssnts and cheese as they do in Europe.....this is not to say that breakfast was not substantial with home made muffins, and fruit to take and muffins for on the go. We were given an upgrade to a King Room which had a lovely bay window and settee and plenty of tea, coffee, homemade biscuits provided. room also had personal touches with fresh flowers on mantle piece with original fireplace, cuttings of pine leave tucked between the towel folds and also at the end of the toilet roll!!!! Helpful hosts provided location info and where to eat. We took their advice and are at Risby Cove...can also recommend. Lovely gardens with wild white and red spotted mushrooms. Truly enjoyed our stay in this old world charm boutique hotel and would love to see the dining room operating again for dinner. We hope to return and will definitely be recommending to friends.

              Nice Rooms. Crummy Breakfast”

              Nice Rooms

              The rooms are nice but the place is under new ownership. The gourmet restaurant is closed--a downer for me as that was one of the reasons I decided upon this place. The place has a huge wine cellar and will sell you a bottle but no food. The breakfast was the worst B&B breakfast I have ever had. The manager said they do advertise "continental breakfast". Well, to my mind, in a classy B&B that might include things such as home made muffins. What we got was slice bread from the package which you could toast, canned peaches, some limited fresh fruit and an an assortment of dry cereals. I have had better breakfasts in the low end motel chains in the US. No one should be served sliced white/wheat bread from a plastic bag in a classy B&B. The awful breakfasts were one reason I would never stay at this place again. The room cleaning was good. However, when we saw we had run out of TP at 11:00pm, there was none to be found in the room. We used the tissues. It is attention to details that makes or breaks a B&B.

              Location

              Franklin Manor has all the potential to be a great small character hotel and we were attracted to it by reviews in guide books. However, the restaurant - one of our reasons for choosing it in the first place - was closed. Breakfast was dull and unimaginative Our room was incredibly dark - the lights need attention. Overhead light was very dim. Lady in charge was pleasant enough It was far too cold. We visited in mid November snd the weather was chilly enough to have some heating in the main public areas. At breakfast two people had their thick outdoor clothing on!

              Old guest house with modern day comforts, close to town but not in town

              This is a great hotel - close to town, opposite the water (which you cant really see but immediately accessible when you walk down the driveway), and quiet! It is an older style house (query 1910s?) which has a number of rooms, a sitting room, meals area etc. Parking is available at the back of the building or down on the street. The restaurant was closed for winter when we were there. The continental breakfast was plentiful and good. The management were friendly and helpful and had some good suggestions. The rooms were a little tired ('80s period decor?), but warm and cosy and clean. The continental breakfast was included, and was in a large but cosy dining room overlooking the garden. I would be very happy staying here again.
