Accommodation in the

Heart of Kensington

Kensington, Victoria

A Holiday And a 'Sea Change'

Kensington Bed and Breakfast has just hosted Yvonne, the last of thousands of delightful guests since March 2004 when we opened as Kensington C&C.

We’re taking a brief holiday and in spring we’re embarking on a ‘Sea Change’ and will be opening a cottage at Point Lonsdale towards the end of 2021.

We thank past guests for your patronage and friendship over the years and will let you know when bookings open for holidays on the fabulous Bellarine Peninsula.

Kensington Accommodation

Your home away from home

Whether you’re visiting Melbourne to see family or friends, celebrating a special occasion, or having some quality family time – our beautifully renovated 1880s bed and breakfast accommodation in Kensington will be your home away from home.

With the strong community feel and tree lined streets, it’s hard to believe that Kensington is only 5km from the Melbourne CBD.

As soon as you walk in the door, you’ll feel right at home.

Robena & Peter, Thank you for a lovely stay. We were able to spend some quality time with family after not seeing them for 8 months due to the covid lockdown. We’re enjoying your homemade jams!

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.
