Good choice at Franz

Strayed in one of their suites which back onto the bush, very private and tranquil. Only stayed the one night but the room looked like it had everything you needed for a longer stay. Liked the idea if you were there in winter you had your own log fire place, would be nice and cosy. Overall nothing to fault, definitely recommend.
