The facility offers very good rates for the food,plus the environment is super cool. Located in the heart of Limuru, few kilometers from the town. It's a great place to relax with family or friends. It is also has great grounds for weddings or other functions.

Visited for a few days honeymoon.The place is the most serene for any couple or individual wanting some quality uninterrupted time. The staff right from the gate to the reception ( Maurine & Esther) are epitome of true right customer service. The Chef (Joseph Omondi) is very kind very punctual tell him to bring breakfast at 8:07 and right at 8:07 he will be there.His food is so yummy and his attitude to clients just on another level he just sets the appetite right.He even goes ahead and asks you if there is a particular meal you would want to enjoy before end of your stay there.And you ask for it you get it. The hotel has also put measures to curb Covid 19 which were strictly followed. In the evenings the fire at the fire place was just wonderful The forest walks and tea plantation walks are ideal for bonding and quality time. I would definitely come back to Brackenhust Limuru.Our experience was awesome. Wendy

Brackenhurst is a wonderful place to visit, and with its close proximity to Nairobi, it makes for a pleasant weekend treat - the forest walk, the tea farms, and the general beauty and serenity of the surroundings are great. The factor that put a massive cloud in our experience was the astonishingly awful service in the restaurant. After being sat down, we waited more than 40 minutes for a waiter to take our orders. Seeing that they were not coming, we opted to go to the counter and give them our orders. We then waited another hour for our food and drinks, but nothing came, after which we decided to leave. We found this shocking especially considering that 1) they are a conference centre (and should therefore have good, if not superb service) and 2) they were not at all busy. I would still personally recommend going to enjoy the tea farms and the forest walk, but I would not at all recommend using the restaurant at Brackenhurst.

Thank you for your review. I am sorry about the poor service received at our restaurant. We always want every guest to have an amazing experience and want nothing to take away from time spent here. We offer no excuses on the poor service other than to say it has been difficult to know how many guests we may have on a certain day. Your visit coincided with our reopening after being closed for a number of weeks due to COVID. We were surprised how many came to visit, especially with a roadblock still in place. Please accept our apologies and we definitely would welcome any other comments you may want to share. You can reach us at feedback@brackenhurst.com.

Terrible service! Went with a couple of friends for the nature walk(Atleast nature never lets us down) but the service at the cafe was terrible! We waited 2 hours for food without any apologies from the staff. Even after threatening to leave(which we did), the staff still did not care.

Thank you for your review. This is very disappointing to us and we never want to disappoint a single guest. Your visit coincided with our reopening after being closed several weeks due to COVID. We were very surprised at the number of people who visited Brackenhurst. Our expectation was for far fewer guests. Also, our staff were adjusting to new protocols put in place due to COVID. We have now adjusted, added staff and are much quicker with our service. It is most disappointing that you were not offered an apology. We have discussed your review and are taking action on how to better handle such situations. Please feel free to email us at feedback@brackenhurst.com if you would like to share more regarding your experience. We are deeply grateful and your comments help us to improve.

We were a group of friends who had come for dinner to celebrate one of our friend's birthday. We got a reservation in an almost private area near the gift shop, and the set up and the environment was serene. Vincent was the one attending to us and he went out of his way to offer very personalized service and made the day special. Thank you for the excellent work! We definitely will be back. The place is located in the leafy suburb area of Limuru, very cool environment, in the cold season it can be very cold at night. They have plenty of lawns and gardens that are very well manicured, makes the environment ideal for relaxation or a getaway :)
