“The jewel in the crown of our tour of Victoria and South Australia.”
Reviewed 30 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Our host was very hospitable and informative. The accommodation was first class, and presented with an eye for detail. Close proximity to the center of town was an added bonus with a plethora of eating venues and points of interest within easy walking distance.

“We loved Benson House! A great place to stay and a wonderful host.”
Reviewed 17 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We really loved our stay at Benson House. My 13 year old son and I travelled to Benalla for the weekend for my sons basketball tournament. Ray was there to greet us when we arrived and show us around the house, offering us helpful advice around getting where we need to go and things to do in Benalla. Ray even organised his son to help pull my car out of a ditch I drove into. The house was lovely. Big, spacious and comfortable with everything you need to enjoy your stay. We really loved this place. Heaps of outdoor space as well. Thank you Ray and Liz. We will definitely be back on our next trip to Benalla.

“What a great find”
Reviewed 9 March 2015 for a stay in December 2014

A real find. Walking distance to the town centre, park and lake. Great location in North Eadt Victoria. Handy to Winton and the wineries. Something for everyone. Spacious house with good sized bedrooms, lounge, good kitchen and dining room, all really clean and in great condition. Nice, fully fenced garden was an added bonus. It was lovely sitting outside, enjoying the evening. Owners are very friendly but not intrusive. Will definitely be back and happy to recommend to others.

“Could stay for ever”
Reviewed 6 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

After a very average stay in another town nearby, we stumbled across Benson House in Benalla. Thoroughly recommend this place, it is great! The house is a large traditional style house and has everything for a very comfortable stay. We felt so at home there, it was not like a normal holiday rental, far superior. 3 super large bedrooms with very comfortable beds, great lounge, dinning and kitchen. It was very hot during our stay and the house was airconditioned and we made use of the outside eating area for breakfast which was nice. The owners are ready to please so sorted immediately a few little issues we came across. Extra nice touches were cold beers and wine on arrival, coffee machine and breakfast. The town itself is a great base to explore the area along with lots of interesting attractions.
