8/10 Very good

There was so much to like about The Franklin Hotel. Lovely staff, amazing room with a deep bath and a super comfy bed, plus complimentary snacks and drinks, real milk and good tea. Rooms are above a pub though and my Friday night stay was pretty noisy. But the room and service more than made up for it. Friendly and personal. Such a refreshing change from the norm.
