Being the only customers for lunch is not an encouraging start, but then Franklin us a goodly drive from Hobart and there were lots on that weekend. The drive along the Huon River to Franklin is always enticing with moody water and hills. So very Tasmanian. The enclosed verandah setting has a view to the river and was nicely warmed... More

The staff were friendly. The booking was all by phone -no online facilities. No WiFi. The room needed a good clean. We killed more tan a 100 small spiders on the wall above our bed. There were cobwebs all over the place. When we moved the bed out to see where all the spiders were coming from it was obvious... More

No need to book for a table on the veranda but try to get one if the sea breeze isn't too strong. Plenty of daily specials-lots of prawns, squid and fish as well as vegetarian options (plus special diets catered for). Everything we ordered was delicious and well presented. Our waitress was a local lady with a great sense of... More

We popped in to the Lady Franklin for a meal on our way back to Hobart. I can honestly say the eye fillet was one of the best steaks I have had. It was truly a credit to Di and her team. The locals were warm and inviting, beer was cold and the view over the water amazing. Do yourself... More

Tasmania's best kept secret must be the Lady Franklin Hotel. And it's easily found: on the Huon Highway about an hour's drive from Hobart. Franklin is a picturesque village on the Huon River with lots of heritage and interesting sights and sounds. Best seafood I've ever tasted, and the most entertaining maitre-de! Well worth allowing a few hours when planning... More

The views from Di Thorley's Lady Franklin Hotel are only surpassed by the delicious food Di serves up to customers. Loved my stay there in January after the disastrous fires. Di's menu and especially her great seafood are an absolute treat and conversation with the affable and always forthright Di is the icing on the cake.
