My husband and I have gone to Kentmere a couple of times. Most recently, we went there to have our engagement photo shoot. The staff were great and allowed us to rent out one of the cottages. I love the rustic, vintage look of the place...feels like travelling back in time.

If you want to just hang out in beautiful gardens, this is the place to be. However, the room seem run down and as we took a walk around the property, there was an ambience of "letting go" of the fabulous room and other amenities. The gardens are superb and well maintained though.

We went some years back with a family of twelve, brothers, wives, parents and found the place to be wonderful. The rooms were romantic, tub facility, fire place, lovely greenery. However, dinner was very disappointing, very bland food. The breakfast was good, omelette in particular.

I used to love the Kentmere club for its atmosphere and its privacy, quietness and beauty. The problem is that the owners don't want to invest in the place and it's looking grubby and run down. It doesn't need to change its basic architecture and ambiance, but a thorough re-decoration, some serious maintenance, decent internet and TV in the rooms... More

I became adventurous and decided to order one of the latest kid on their menu-Rabbit Meat-. To be fair they did their best to serve me the delicacy as offered but my personal experience was awful! I had to share in my wife's chicken. I have been to Kentmere for more than four times and on one occasion the buffet... More

We were visiting someone in Limuru and this was recommended as a lunch option. Although a bit faded I think it would be a fine place for a cup of tea or a cocktail overlooking the garden in the back, but the food is not good. The menu was suspiciously broad and our group stuck to toasted ham and cheese... More

Although the setting is very beautiful, the poor service will stop me from coming back here again. The food was adequate, but nothing special, but the staff were extremely slow to respond to requests, and some were even unfriendly. When a cockroach was discovered in someone's coffee, and tinfoil in another person's soup, the staff seemed to think we were... More

On a weekend or on a weekend afternoon, this is a beautifull garden in an area of coffe and tea plantations. The terrace is nice, the food is great and the country club aspect is a treasure.

Their christmas lunch is absolutely and chic. They treat you like royalty and even as you enjoy the country air, fresh and crisp the food comes just as fresh and crisp.
