As soon as we arrived we loved Kensington B&B. It is situated in a beautiful and very peaceful location yet very close to lots of lovely cafes and restaurants and a 10 minute train ride to the centre of Melbourne. We were made to feel very welcome by Peter and Robena and we felt so at home and so relaxed... More

This appealing B&B is well presented and a plus that it provided a twin room, which is sometimes difficult to locate. Excellent location to the city, supermarket and eateries, if you don't want to cook for yourself which is an option. Quiet and peaceful but close to the city. Robina was very helpful with offering information. We will be back... More

A mate & I stayed at the Kensington B&B for the F1 Grand Prix in Melbourne recently. What a great place to stay not far from the city (only to train stations from Southern Cross) & you are in the city in 10mins. Easy 3 minute walk from the B&B to the Kensington train station. The owners are very friendly,... More

A gem of a place to stay! Very comfortable bedrooms - we had both rooms on the top street level and there is a wonderful balcony to soak up the rays over breakfast (if its not too hot!). Wonderful hosts who were helpful with local information etc: and not only looked after some luggage for us, but gave us their... More

Hi Robena, Peter and Laura, Thank you very much. We had a really good time staying at your place. We felt so much at home. The place is cozy, bright and clean. We particularly loved the home-made jam that we had to take some home to Singapore! We absolutely enjoyed the stay! We would love to stay with you again... More

Kensington B&B is an excellent place to stay in Melbourne. We were sorry to miss Robina, but her daughter could not have been more helpful in seeing us in. All the basics were available for breakfast and the accommodation is spacious, comfortable and quiet. Great shower and so on. Very convenient for the City centre and airport as its on... More

We had a lovely stay with Robena and Peter at the Kensington B&B - they are super hospitable, but also gave us our space, the room downstairs is lovely and light and provided a lovely place to escape to between outings and events. They even gave us some homemade olive oil and honey and homegrown garlic!! Great location too, close... More

The four of us were in Melbourne for a convention and Peter & Robena provided everything we could need. Full kitchen facilities so we could cook at night and prepare our lunches for the next day, Myki cards for public transport, breakfast we could help ourselves to no matter how early we were up, and complimentary wifi so we could...
