Why Guests Choose Us

Robena, Peter & Laura,

We have enjoyed this peaceful home and our downstairs garden room for almost two weeks. It’s just the perfect solution to a Melbourne stay without the city stress. Thank you all three for taking care of us and making this visit to your city a perfect one. We’ll be back one day!




Peter, Robena & Laura.

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful & lovely home & warm hospitality. I will highly recommend anyone from my country to share this place as the location is very easy to get around.

I immediately fell in love with Kensington B&B when I saw it. Robena and Peter are lovely hosts and made me feel like home from the very first moment. Brekkie was substantial. I loved Robena’s homemade jam (fig & ginger was my favourite).

It was definitely not my last stay,  Antjie

I have just returned to Perth following yet another wonderful stay at my favourite B&B. As always I was made to feel very welcome as were other members of my family that popped in. Thanks yet again Peter, Robena and Laura for your wonderful hosting and will be back next year.

Best wishes, Judy

Dear Robena & Peter,

Thank you for accommodating us. My family and I had a wonderful time staying at your B&B. We truly felt at home away from home. We will definitely be back when we visit Melbourne next time.

From Malaysia with love
