Ohmigosh, I loved staying here and was sorely disappointed that it was only for one night! Seriously, what wasn't to love. The Franklin has a great mix of old hotel friendliness and hospitality, with modern funky details. Rooms located upstairs, fairly quite mid-week, no noise from neighbours in other rooms or the next buildings. Bathroom and tea/coffee facilities were bright. So many fun quirks in the design. What made me giggle like a kid at a party, though, was the giftbag of goodies (lollies, chips, biscuits, chocolate) and the fruit in the hall. I'm smiling just thinking about staying here again. See you asap!

Old hotel sensitively restored to it's former glory, with new bathrooms. Rooms a bit on the small side, and lack storage; but prices very competitive. Does not serve breakfast (gastro pub downstairs opens 10am). Close to conference centre.

Wonderful stay, clean room, comfortable and goodie bag was a lovely treat. Loses one point for shower being either scalding hot or freezing and bad pressure. Would recommend and come back again for sure, thanks Team Franklin!
