    Gorgeous old house”
    This was a quiet house away from the normal tourist area. I had the loft room which was lovely, great to be able to open the huge windows & sleep with fresh air. My only comment is that the loft room is definitely not for anyone who is not pretty agile. Beside the narrow stairs the shower is over a bath which is I set under the sloping roof, it is tricky to get into & out of & would be quite dangerous for anyone who is flexible with good balance. Bernadette was lovely & very helpful.

    We loved the views of the city from the rooms.We found the character of the building a class with trimmings to match .the location was quite but close enough to everything.
    We had a lovely stay , stayed in the loft room the first night enjoyed the stay loved the whole experience . Food was great in west end ..had such a good time after checking out we were having lunch and decided to check back in . Stayed in the master suite the second night , both great rooms . Very comfortable ..

    Another lovely stay at Franklin Villa with all its quirkiness, beautiful balconies, garden and pool. A stroll to the markets and cafes at West End and walking distance to South Bank and the river. Continental breakfast is now included. Its not cheap but competitively priced for Brisbane accommodation which is so expensive.

    Excellent small group boutique hotel”
    The communal areas, decor and privacy
    Our stay was marred by a huge storm but the owners went out of their way to accommodate us despite being in a difficult position themselves. Having free range of the central areas was absolutely perfect for what we were looking for and the facilities were excellent. Guests must be prepared for some of the 'uniquness'of the facilities.

    Delightful eclectic stay”
    Eclectic decor, great location for walking to boat and unique shops and cafes.
    Perfect for a brief or more lengthy stay in Brisbane, affordable and so much nicer than in the busy downtown district. Having access to a full kitchen is a nice amenity, although I was not there long enough to use it. Don't let the "Adams Family" exterior appearance scare you away. The place is a gem!

    History, close to my conference venue, some good views
    The stay was OK but the first day there was creaking sound and I found that it was coming from a window that doesn't fit. So I put some paper to tighten it up. So I could sleep well from the second night. I booked a room with ensuite (the white room). The bathroom, although was for my own use was across the corridor and other rooms were very close to my room, hence privacy was compromised compared to a real ensuite bathroom. Not sure if other rooms have their ensuits the normal way. Except for this, the property was good value for money and nice old charm.

It had a great kitchen, a balcony for our room with a lovely view; our room was well laid out and the bathroom had a magnificent old bath; the boutique charm was fascinating and the proprietor, Bernadette was just wonderful in helping with problems!

    History, location and exciting
    the hotel is just a big old house which has been renovate to be the bouteque hotel. the floor is wood, so when other customers walked and talked I could hear the noice and it disturbed me at night and the evironment within the hotel made me scare. there are many old pictures of peeple who uesed to live there in the past and I could assume that those people passed way for long time already.

    Beautiful artefacts, magnificent view; pool room, many spaces to relax, High tea
    we were delighted by the beautiful ambience of franklin villa. business partners bernadette and lainey are friendly and charming hosts. a lot of thought has gone into creating an atmosphere of a bygone era. the white room was very roomy. the only drawback was that bathroom was across the hall, the shower was over a hip bath (a falls risk) and all the bedrooms were upstairs. however the bathroom was for the exclusive use of the white room and it was magnificently decorated. on sundays bernadette and lainey host a high tea which we purchased tickets for. it was a delightful treat which we extended by adjourning to the pool room to play billiards. a memorable weekend.
