Had a lovely stay at the Benson House in August last year with our Aunt visiting family. We decided to book the Lodge this time as it was only my wife and I visiting. Ray very generously upgraded us to the Benson House so we could have the family over and spend time together. Very lovely house with lots of space and great facilities. Complimentary food and drinks in the cupboard and fresh bread. Would highly recommend a stay. 5*
Surprisingly wonderful spacious accommodation. Everything we needed was provided. Exceptionally clean. Will definitely return. Perfect for a family stay. Benalla has a lot to offer for weekend away from Melbourne and Benson House is the best accommodation on offer. Thanks Ray for hosting us.
I spent the summer months working in Benalla and stayed the week days in the Benson house. You couldn't ask for much more; very spacious, comfortable furniture with a fully equipped kitchen for accommodating a single traveller up to a large family. The house is in a nice part of town and not far from shops. I spent many evenings exercising around Lake Benalla which made a convenient 5km loop from Benson house.
Upon arriving you are met with a warm welcome from Ray or Liz and there is a vegetable garden from which you can help yourself.
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!
