Bathroom was modern. Had a fridge and tea kettle but no microwave. Food at the saloon was excellent and large servings. No elevator.

Best place to stay for your visit to Adelaide, lovely clean room and bathroom, very comfy bed, with all you need plus some. Friendly welcoming helpful staff, great courtyard area, great communal balcony for hotel guests. Close to everything. Don't bother booking anywhere else . I'll def be back?

It's a nice pub. Spacious and has a nice backyard/outdoorsy area.
Good selection of decent drinks. Cocktails and beer are a-OK! But I wouldn't order a coffee here again anytime soon.
I haven't tried any other items on the menu.

Not many pubs you can get long neck beers! That in itself is worthy of god status. Food is good for pub grub. Enjoyable atmosphere.

I'm not local to Adelaide, but if I was, this would be my local.
Quality selection of Aussie beer, tap take-overs and the best hot dogs ? you'll find. What else would you want?

Came for the Sailors Grave Takeover since my husband and I love craft beer, but stayed for the friendly staff & great atmosphere. Food was also really good! Great spot!

I have to say I was really disappointed by the Franklin Boutique Hotel. I was looking forward to staying somewhere different and it failed.
The main problem was the day we were leaving the Hotel was closed all day because it's a public holiday. And although the cleaners were there, they could not advise what we could do with our bags once we checked out. If we had followed the instructions provided, we would have been locked out without our bags. So, we just had to walk the streets for the day with our bags.

The other problems included:
It's very very noisy, I know it's an old pub, but still music till late and then woken early by reversing trucks and buses.
The shower is bizarre, although it just dribbles out, it does it in a way that can still give you a wet floor in the bedroom.
The bed was like sleeping on the floor, it was so hard we both woke up feeling sore.
The room is tiny, so small there isn't space for a wardrobe or chairs. There is a stool but good luck sitting on it.
There are some plus points:
The staff were friendly when they were available
The hotel is in a good location
Free minibar and coffee machine

This place is amazing. The staff are so friendly and they know their stuff. The hot dogs are just the best but in saying that, the whole menu is great. Lots of craft beers as well as local ones. Do yourself a massive favour and pay them a visit.

What a great place to make the most of an overnight layover in Adelaide!
The staff are super friendly and welcoming, the room had absolutely everything I needed (and I loved the little gift ??) and the bar itself is a terrific spot for dinner and a craft beer.
Perfect location in a very cool little 'hood, full great places to eat and drink within strolling distance.
Can't wait to get back and spend more time here!

This place was great for our purposes; we came very early but they gave us the room immediately - because we did check in early the welcome package was not available though. The rooms were trendy and large and excellent value. The cleaning crew were spectacular, changing sheets and restocking the free minibar daily. The location is good but if you are looking for a quiet relaxing experience this may not be for you as there is a pub downstairs, and the main road and air con definitely contribute to the noise. The hospitable staff, key dropoff and spectacular bath are standouts.

We stayed in the Franklin for 10 days while we were in Adelaide on holidays. It's in a great location a couple of minutes walk from some lovely dining spots and good nightlife. The Franklin has its own bar with a bespoke menu and an assortment of delicious craft beers. The staff are all very friendly, relaxed and helpful. The rooms are very spacious and decked out to modern boutique spec. The bathroom is quite large and open with a fantastic free standing bath. All in all delighted with this gem of a find, we really enjoyed our stay. We will definitely be visiting the Franklin again.

Absolutely loved eating here. Food was great and the atmosphere was very relaxed. The beer garden was a brilliant spot to have a few craft beers and dinner

I went for lunch with some work friends. I had their vegan burger which was delicious- the patty was made of rice beans and veggies (I believe) but the crust on it was amazing and stopped it from being soggy like other burgers of this type. I can't comment on the non vegan food. The staff were amazing and the prices were a little on the dear side but not too bad.

Stopped by for some Christmas drinks with my workmates and to exchange gifts. We were in the charming beer garden. Food and drinks were great and the service was excellent. Great range of beers and SA Wines too.

What a great / stunning Boutique style hotel in a really nice & quiet area of Adelaide CBD !

We had such a great experience staying here and glad we made the choice to book here. As a family of three the Boutique Hotel sits above the Franklin pub and it was just perfect for what we were looking for.
Unique and well appointed rooms which were also very generous on size. Easy access to the Hotel either when the pub is closed or open along with a huge upper level terrace which allows you to have food and drinks delivered by the excellent staff upstairs and simply watch the world go by.

Downstairs - The staff were terrific for our entire stay. Very attentive, easy going, always happy to help and just have a really great attitude and as they are your first impressions when arriving, it makes for a really great stay and overall experience :).

Whilst the Hotel doesn't cater for breakfast there are two great places literally around the corner or further down Franklin Street that would cater and allow you to kick-start the day.

Overall, a terrific stay and would highly recommend !

Great service, fantastic atmosphere. Relaxing lunch with family, great place to catch up and chill. The food is delicious and the beverages just top things off. Thanks again.

WOW!!! What an awesome place. The food was fantastic, staff had an astonishing amount of knowledge about the craft beers types on tap and wine flight, plus the accommodation upstairs was the perfect ending to the night. Will definitely be telling all my friends next time they want to spoil themselves with a night in town and want a great meal and accommodation, the Franklin Rocks!!! See you again soon.

$15 for a "pint" that was even smaller than a normal Adelaide pint, which is already smaller than a pint from any other state. They also don't have beer prices anywhere so you only find out once you order. Steak sandwich was very nice.

Had a fantastic one night stay in the rooms above the pub. They exceeded my expectations in every way. The design in the room was fun and fresh. The staff were so helpful and friendly. I booked at 3am the morning before I wanted to check in (very last minute trip planning) and they were still happy to put a priority turnover on my room so I was able to check in early as per my booking request. I dropped my bags off early and returned when I got the call that my room was ready only to find that they gave me a free room upgrade just because they had one available! They'd also already taken my bags up for me. Free snacks and mini bar drinks, wifi and lovely evo products in the bathroom. I felt very well taken care of.
The only problem I had was with the water temperature in the shower, it fluctuated wildly and was difficult to control. I wouldn't hold this against them though because I didn't actually make a complaint and I have complete faith that if I had, they would have either tried to fix it or given me some complimentary something to make up for it. Truly I had a wonderful experience here.

I didn't spend much time at the pub but I did notice they had a hand pump ale, so had to treat myself to a glass which was such a treat!

I will definitely stay here whenever I need a fun spot in the city and I strongly suggest you do the same.

I've always been a little ambivalent when it comes to hotdogs ? but let me assure you; you will never find a better one. I had the original which was superb. My friends had the jalapeno and they loved it. And the icing on the cake? The service was outstanding ??'?. What brilliant staff.

Great value! The staff were so friendly and the bar itself had a great vibe. We received a complimentary upgrade and the bathtub was amazing - lovely welcome bag and complimentary minibar drinks as well. Highly recommend!
