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.

Just a quick note to say that I've been back in Kenya for various visits in the last couple of years and would say that there was probably a bit of a dip a couple of years ago, but as of 2015 the food and service is excellent.

My family came here on the 01st Jan 2015. The food was served buffet style but there is an Ala carte option. Good food in general. They have an expansive garden that is on a hill.

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.
