Anonymous (October 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. Thank you!
September 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. The generously sized lounge features a leather lounge suite, 42” TV, mini hi-fi system, DVD player and table setting. Alternatively, enjoy chatting around the table in the separate dining room, or under the magnificent palm tree, or in the glassed sunroom area. This accommodation is about roominess".
Enjoy evaporative cooling or central heating for your comfort.
