Due to work we spent 2 weeks at Benson House and what a treat it was. We fell in love with the house and Benalla. The house was so homely, beautiful clean and the yard was perfect for us and our little dog to use. We had friends stay and the house easily accommodated a wheelchair to move freely around. We did lots of walking, Gallery visiting and enjoyed chatting to the very friendly shop owners. The Street Art is stunning as you turn every corner. We ran out of time to play tennis. The beautiful shade trees everywhere kept us cool. Ray and Liz are fabulous hosts, nothing is too much trouble. We are booked for June and really looking forward to Benson House again. You would not find better value or house in Benalla or surrounds. Enjoy
Benson House and Benson Lodge was ideal accommodation for 4 couples. It location is within easy walking distance of the shopping centres and many of the wonderful "things to see and do" in Benalla. Benson House and Lodge were cosy, very comfortable beds, great shower, large house full of character. It features a lovely garden and outdoor area. Ray, our host, is full of life, very helpful and goes the extra miles to ensure his guests enjoyed their stay. We look forward to our next visit. Thank you Ray.
The house is located in a beautiful tree lined street in the heart of Benalla. You are close to all the shops, supermarkets and all other amenities . The house itself is perfect for a family or a group of friends with its spacious bedrooms, facilities and privacy. You have all what you need and you can enjoy your stay by visiting all what Benalla and its surrounds offer. I go every year without fail for a small break and i would not stay anywhere else.
A perfect family holiday! Benalla is a quiet pretty little town which was perfect for a mid year vay kay to rejuvinate the batteries.
Benalla House is a great period home which more than catered for our two famalies with small children, the sunroom was a great place for the kids to play with the toys provided and the weather was terrific for the children to play in the secured yards.
Ray was a fantastic host providing a cot at short notice and we were pleasently suprised to find chocolate, milk and juice provided as a welcome.
Why would you stay in a motel or caravan park when you have this as an option?
Full kitchen, free wifi, secure yards, central heating, dvds, full bathroom and laundry, everything you could possibly need.....RECOMMEND!
The house and gardens are spacious. The surrounding trees with autumn leaves were gorgeous. We were surprised by the amount of local attractions. The host Ray was extremely helpful with his local knowledge. We will definitely return. We will also take our dog as pets are permittred
Terrific location close to the town centre and most things well within walking distance. A well maintained and clean house full of character, charm and with a nice garden/lawn area out the back. Perfect for a weekend getaway with some friends.
Benson House is a three bedroom house. Each bedroom isquiet large with high ceilings. There are two dining areas plus a sun room which is an enclosed back veranda with a lovely view of a private back garden. Such a quiet place to stay all within a ten minute walk of the highly regarded Benalla botanic Gardens and an art Gallery by the lake.
I don't think there could be a better place to stay in Benalla...so close to the botanic gardens.
The kitchen was thoughtfully stocked with condiments and muesli....you could arrive hungry and find a quick meal in this kitchen. I also liked the organised shelf of local tourist information. laid out so you could easily see what was of real interest. This accommodation is among the very best I have encountered in regional Victoria.
I am already planning a return visit....
