About us


with Heart

We fell in love with Kensington over 20 years ago and love sharing this fabulous pocket of Melbourne with guests.

Come discover the friendly neighbourhood and stay with us in our welcoming, comfortable homes close to the heart of Melbourne.

We discovered this fabulous inner Melbourne suburb in 2000 when we bought 97 McConnell Street, falling in love with the area as we set about the major renovation of our 1882 weatherboard workers’ cottage.

Being country people we felt at home in the small town atmosphere created by the friendly locals and shopkeepers, heritage protected streetscapes and a strong sense of community.

Many businesses are owner operated, locals are happy to stop and chat filling you in with stories, Kensington history and myths.

The train is just two stops to the city while the 402 bus takes you east past major hospitals, Melbourne University, Melbourne Museum and on to Fitzroy, or west to Footscray and its bustling multicultural community.

We look forward to welcoming you to Kensington B&B soon!

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.
