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....
We stayed in the at the Lodge at Benson House. It was a clean comfortable affordable little place where our little dog felt comfortable and we felt comfortable with her being with us. Ray was very welcoming and helpful. The bed was clean and comfortable as was the bathroom and everything provided. They give you an ample supply of breakfast items and have obviously put a lot of thought into making sure you are well looked after during your stay.
Our stay at Benson House & Lodge was so relaxing with plenty of room for our large family to prepare for our sons wedding. In the heart of Benalla we were able to walk to the hotel for a meal & the shops. The kitchen was well equipped which made it easier for our large group plus two dining rooms gave us more room to spread out. The weather was hot but the house & lodge were lovely & cool. Comfortable beds & plenty of towels. Great backyard with another two outdoor settings for our large group. Ray couldn't do enough for us & was only a phone call away if need be.
We highly recommend Benson House & Lodge!
