Glorious setting at 7500 ft in the hills above Limuru, with cottages scattered in leafy grounds around a central main house, all surrounded by indigenous forest full of birds and colobus monkeys. The cottages with names rather than numbers are best, with en-suite bathrooms and daily service. Meals are served in the main house (which has WiFi too) and consist... More

Went here as day visitors. The grounds are beautiful and great just to walk around and enjoy some greenery and fresh air. They have a couple of easy walking trails around the complex. The best part of my visit was the food. Had a very nicely prepared molo lamb, which was extremely good value! The teas and coffees were great... More

I spent three days and nights there during a recent team activity. It's quote a beautiful place to visit, set as it is in the evergreen tea zone of Limuru. I really enjoyed the cool and fresh air as we did an important piece of work. And being in such quiet surroundings, with the occasional chirping of birds, was quite... More

As a Limuru resident I have visited the place severally. It's a breathtakingly beautiful place.The food is good (not necessarily great) and service may be very slow sometimes. It's a nice place to stop over for a meal with family , a date with a loved one , or even a coffee date with a friend. Great ambiance. The rooms... More

Second time to the Brackenhurst. Went for a meeting. The grounds are quiet and peaceful. Trees and grounds nicely kept. Lots of diversity with lots of birds (that might wake you up in the AM). Tea plantations and other nice areas to walk in or near the grounds. (Limuru did not stike me as a place for a casual walk.)... More

Picturesque grounds, the friendliest staff ever, and very reasonable prices make this a place we come back to again and again! The café makes a lovely cappuccino, and their fajita platter is quite authentic despite being thousands of miles from it's origen.

I have had the honour of staying in Brackenhurst Hotel on four different occasions. I love the fact that the facility is well situated within nature. The lawns are well kept, the rooms are ever tidy, the meals are soooooooo good and staff so friendly. Brackenhurst will be one of 'A' hotels in Kenya.

My wife and I stayed here as our home base while exploring Kenya's many tourist and safari opportunities. The staff was able to get us safe transportation and booking for all of our car trips. I loved walking through the hiking paths. Overall experience was great.

We stayed two nights. Beautiful grounds, very green, clean and safe. Very quiet and perfect for when you need some time off. I loved that they have recreational activities on site and variety of options for accommodation. The food was good until they started recycling leftovers, disappointing. I did not get to eat the delicious Sunday morning pancakes and syrup... More
