“Easy Access All Areas”
Reviewed 14 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We went to Benalla for the Bush Poets and Musicians Muster held at the bowling club and Benson House was a short stroll away. We also enjoyed walking through the Botanical Gardens and watching the local cricketers on the way to the Art Gallery. Another short walk over the river into town and on to the Antique Fair. A great location and a fun week end in a peaceful setting.

“Fabulous weekend!”
Reviewed 24 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

What a wonderful place to stay on our Girl's Weekend!
Benson House is a very spacious, clean and very comfortable house and the extra touches by Liz and Ray were thoughtful and generous.
The beds were comfortable and the kitchen very well set up. The central heating was much appreciated!
As well as the many tourist pamphlets available, Ray gave us some excellent suggestions for things to do. The best of these was the suggestions about the wineries and to eat at Rustik Café and Winebar in Benalla-a must if you are looking for a fabulous meal.

“Relaxed and refreshed!”
Reviewed 5 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed at the Benson house last weekend and were more than pleased when we arrived. Our host was extremely friendly, and made us feel right at home. The house is so spacious! We couldn't believe how large the bedrooms and yard was. Talk about value for money!
A weekend was not long enough and we will definitely be coming back.
Feeling relaxed and refreshed.
Thankyou. Erin

“Benson House - The Dreaming Jewel of Benalla”
Reviewed 29 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

What a fine accommodation experience. Prior to our arrival, Ray was on the ball, obliging and helpful via phone or text. Liz, who met us, was an easy-going person who put us at ease with encouragements like, "You've got the run of the place" and "Don't be afraid to turn up the heat." This turned out to be sound advice when we discovered ice on our car windscreen next morning. Once inside the stately house, we warmed instantly to the high ceilings, the sense of space and elegance, and the immaculate presentation of each room. One look in the main bedroom and we knew we were in for a great night's sleep. Indeed, a bomb would not have roused us. Central heating to each room helped ensure our comfort.

We washed our clothes and cooked night and morning, grateful for the thoughtful kitchen provisions that included refreshments, fruit and breakfast foods. We loved the house's setting; a wide, tree-lined and quiet street. Had we stayed longer, we would have wandered down to a restaurant because these and many shops were within easy walking distance. Also accessible by foot were the rose gardens, gallery and beautiful lake. We liked Benson House very much as it was a peaceful, relaxing place to stay. We also think Benalla is a wonderful place to stop over on a trip from Sydney to Melbourne or as a springboard to the mountains or Murray River.
