When you stay at the Old Bank, you’ll sleep in the former bank manager’s office and your private bathroom is in the original bank vault. Light the cosy wood fire and relax in this piece of local history.

The main road location of the Old Bank means you're only a short stroll from Franklin’s cafes and restaurants and the beautiful Huon River. It’s the ideal base for exploring the local area including cider bars and wineries, the Wooden Boat Centre, Tahune Airwalk and Hartz Mountains.
