We loved our stay at Kensington B&B for a week. It is a place where you feel like you are at home while being a short ride to the center of Melbourne. The rooms are spacious and well maintained. We particularly liked the kitchen / family area that was available to lounge in and have discussions with others who were... More

Kensington B&B was a lovely place to stay at and was close to a family member just a walk away. We paid extra for use of a private bathroom but was slightly disappointed as it was a walk up the hallway, and close to the kitchen. We did think it would be closer to the room but we didn't enquire... More

Thank you for your review and apologies for not making it clear that the bathroom was not adjacent or attached to our only twin bedroom. I have made a note to do so for future similar inquiries. Peter will check the courtesy light operation, some olive branches may need to be pruned to prevent them activating the light or it... More

We had 3 nights at the Kensington B & B recently. An excellent place to stay. Comfortable, great kitchen & dining area. We particularly enjoyed using the balcony & watching the bird life. A brilliant location, surprisingly quiet, great proximity to shops, restaurants and public transport. Peter & Robena are friendly, helpful, welcoming and good fun. The house is shared... More

We have stayed at Kensington B&B several times and never been disappointed. It is well situated for restaurants and the city via the train. For us it is very convenient when visiting our daughters' family in Flemington.

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
