'Benson House is a three bedroom house. Each bedroom is quiet 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....April 2017
"What a fine accommodation experience. 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. 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". February 2017
