We went today for lunch and had a great experience. We've been before and both times the food was exquisite! The price was unbelievable for fine dinning cooking, from the madras curry, to the fille minion beef the food was incredible at a fair price! We had a great time exploring the huge garden with many beautiful and exotic plants.... More

We have been regular visitors to Kentmere for many years. We used to be members until they changed into a public facility, which has had the opposite effect to that which was intend, which was to attract more custom and make more money! The new management has changed so much which has unfortunately had the impact of turning the old... More

We stumbled up Kentmere on a day out visiting the Tigoni falls. Charming place with absolutely stunning gardens which we enjoyed for about an hour before deciding to go to the restaurant side and have a bite. The restaurant side was not the same as the gardens. It was crowded by cats, around 15 of them and it was quite... More

The Club is set in its beautiful garden along the Old Limuru Road. Driving from Nairobi, it is about 12 km from Ruaka corner, where Northern by-pass, New Limuru... More

My family and I decided to spend Madaraka day at the Kentmere which was a big mistake. The first table we settled on had its roof cover full of snails we stopped counting at 10. We decided to settle at a lounge next to the bar. The table could not be cleaned of the food droppings left behind by previous... More

The place is great for going out with your girlfriend or boyfriend, the nicely manicured lawn with a mature garden and a small river passing by, hearing the birds chipping, its a true feeling amidst nature. The fee is very nominal and you get a lot of privacy here, you feel you are in 1970 s. Amazing place, i love... More

Fantastic terraced garden atmosphere. Old world menu items, full of flavour and hearty goodness. The brandy snaps are the best in the region!

Food and service was terrible. Had duck and my fiancé had rabbit which was a wrong order. The place is scenic but the hotel is quite rundown.
