Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! The Benalla motels looked pretty ordinary so I looked around and found this absolute gem. We were meandering home from Melbourne and could only stay one night which was a shame as it turns out that there is much more to do in Benalla than we realised; we really hope to be back sometime and hopefully we can stay here when we do! Jane was very welcoming and had a lot of local information; there was good communication before our arrival which resulted in her booking us a table at a local restaurant, which was great, and at an east walking distance. All her suggestions were very helpful. The key was easy to collect from the safe. The accommodation itself was delightful, very clean, and the bed was very comfortable. We enjoyed our breakfast too and appreciated the opportunity to own a new book (Elena Ferrante) - thanks! Absolutely no complaints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We had an excellent stay at Rushton with our two larger dogs. They loved their sunny back yard and we all enjoyed snoozing by the fire. Located in walking distance to everything yet still tucked away for peace and quiet, this was a love place for us to spend a romantic weekend away. Jane was an excellent host, great correspondence and recommendations to make our time more memorable. In a great location for visiting heritage towns like Beechworth (which we did, a must do!) and the Ned Kelly area, we really enjoyed our walk through history. Rushton included (actually we would love to know its heritage also!). Cant thank you enough for such a relaxed, and welcome stay for us and our four legged family, we almost didn't want to leave!
