I was here to get away from Nairobi and to do some work in some peace and quiet. I love the charm of the place and it's beautifully green. Pay the additional 500 shillings for the fire in the evening. Staff are very friendly and courteous. Plus, take advantage of the walking trails. Alcohol isn't allowed on the premises so...

THERE"S NO BOOZE! For a Hotel, we found this really strange, ok, we found it bizarre. I think the Hotel should make this much clearer within their website. So if you like a drink, when considering this place, make a plan to take your own. No idea, what their policy is, so we just popped out into Limuru and got...

It is serene and quiet. I loved taking walks in the two forests that are part of the facility. The staff are friendly. I'd recommend Brackenhurst if you're looking at taking a mini vacay away from Nairobi for some peace and fresh air. Lovely place.

The menu has changed for the better at the Muna Tree Cafe! They added a variety of pizzas, and kept the menu more simple than it used to be, but in this case I really believe less is more!

It is a nice place to be. This is ideal for get away for two, brainstorming, buisness discussion (generally retreat types). However, it may not be ideal for families, especially with young children who may require more.

I attended the recently concluded PAACS conference at Brackenhurst center. The experience was incredible. The hotel is located in a serene area with lush vegetation and revitalizing atmosphere. The purpose of the conference was educational but the Center made it a complete package with sumptuous meals, cordial staff and beautiful surroundings. It was indeed an experience to remember.

Great customer service, warm and friendly staff. the training room was comfortable and well lit. I would suggest a more equipped training room with raised podium for a better view of facilitator. the location is convenient with amenities near the room as expected. What I liked best was the customer service and the least is the cold, you should consider...
