My friend and I had a fabulous stay at Old Kent. We were lucky as a few members of the owner family were staying while we were there. They have well explained us about the history of the estate and coffee plantation. Sunset plantation walk was picturesque and fun; if you are adventurous you would love it. Also you will...

They are as such good at Anglo Indian cuisine & local Coorgi food but then no other choice. Nevertheless...

Old Kent, a reminder of the colonial architecture. A job well done to reinstate its past glory. Recommend this place over and above any other destination, if you are looking for inner peace and tranquility. Its location is probably the most vantage point in the whole of Kodagu/Coorg, and the flora and fauna no less either. What it provides you...

It was an excellent place. Awesome staff who really cares like a family member. Excellent Club House and plenty of games, beautiful lawn to relax. Birds chirping on the silent valley. Never miss this place if you are an avid traveler and need to relax enjoying the mother nature.

We stayed there, a family of four for about a week in 2016 summers and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The club house is gorgeous and the food was delicious. They really have a chef who has culinary skills. The plantation walks were fun, though we could have done with more walking and mountain biking. The gardens, the trees and above...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Old Kent Estates, originally developed in the mid 1800s, is one of the earliest established coffee plantations in Southern India. William Roland Wright, a Colonel in the British Army led to the transformation of this 200-acre estate from a jungle in which big game abound to a cultivated plantation and a delightful home to his family. First constructed in 1864, the stately bungalow has been fully restored to its former charm & glory and has vignettes of the by gone colonial era and houses several rooms. As a tribute to the Wright Family, each room is fondly named after one of the family members who once inhabited within. The property has been designed keeping in mind its rich history and tradition, ensuring the conservation and preservation of the natural surroundings, within an exclusive boutique setting. Each English cottage with its own private garden provides the utmost privacy, Get pampered with the Old Kent hospitality and experience the tranquil life of a typical estate owner in British India. Read some of the reviews from our guests to find out why we have been awarded the coveted Traveller's Choice Award two years running. ... more   less
