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

My daughter and I had a lovely stay at Kensington B&B. Great atmosphere, nice little shopping street nearby, privacy and quiet and all the conveniences of home. The hosts are very friendly and accommodating. This is now top of my list for staying in Melbourne and I look forward to next time.

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...

Spacious kitchen at our disposal and a good quality help yourself breakfast, including lovely home made preserves.

This was our third stay at this lovely house. Peter & Robena are generous & obliging hosts. Great location - quiet, close to public transport, local shops & city. We were able to relax and felt at home, especially having the use of the kitchen for meals and cuppas. Enjoyed Robina's lime marmalade for breakfast.

Beautiful house with beautiful hosts, location was fantastic and a good start to explore Melbourne, Overall stay came out better than expected. Train station was a walk away. Street parking was easy both Saturday and Sunday. Robina's home made Jam was delicious for breakfast and gift bottles of Pete's olive oil straight from the farm made it feel extra homley.
