OUR GUESTS

AMAZING STAY!

star iconstar iconstar iconstar iconstar icon

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Benson! When we arrived after many delayed flight issues, the staff were super understanding and accomodating. They are also very active on their booking.com messages and were replying to our updates promptly. The rooms were perfect and we had a beautiful view from our balcony. The breakfast was amazing, proper cafe-style menu and it was delicious!

We couldn’t fault our stay here and will definitely be staying again 😍

Highly Recommend

The service from the staff was really impressive! I stayed only one night over the weekend and at every interaction the staff were polite, friendly, and accommodating. Really happy with my stay and recommend to everyone. P.s the pool and restaurant are lovely too!

So convenient and friendly

These guys are very nice to deal with. From booking to check in and right the way through to check out they were very accommodating. The restaurant and bar area is very nice – really nice outdoor seating area and pool. Definitely coming back

We had our daughters 21st here last night and it was absolutely fabulous. The setting is gorgeous, the staff amazing. Everyone was so helpful and Courtney the events manager was just such a delight to deal with. There really is no better venue in cairns. The sax player was fantastic, just a great vibe all around. Thank you ❤
