Old Kent Estate is one of those boutique hotels whose heritage charm and quaint ambience truly makes it feel like a home away from home! The cottage style rooms are huge with a relaxing sitting area and a beautiful four poster bed. If you are a lover of antique furniture you will enjoy the select pieces in every room from the sofa to the little writing desk. The bathrooms are huge and well maintained with a separate shower and stone bathtub along with and
a unique foot basin spa. The hotel is also a treat for the bookworm in you as it has a huge library in the main lodge. Mr. Sampat, the extremely knowledgeable manager and coffee expert took us for a walk in the large and thickly forested plantation amistd which the hotel is situated. The platation provides walking trails of varying intensities depending on your choice and is a great way to spend the evening. Lastly the food at Old Kent is a treat for anyone who wants a superior gastronomic experience with a large menu. The chef did a great job with the fresh vegetables and spices from the surrounding area excelling in both local and western cuisine. The breakfast was also of great quality and variety. All the staff and servers were extremely hospitable and courteous. All in all Old Kent is a must stay in Coorg if one wants the authentic plantation experience!

Pros
- Lavish and very spacious cottages with either bath tubs or Jacuzzi and private garden area.

Cons
- Don't opt for jacuzzi cottage as they don't have hot water for the jacuzzi. Very strange indeed
- Beware taking your sedans here. Atleast 1km bumpy drive

Everything you need to know
- If your heading to Coorg for the tourism it has to offer and not too worried about the scenic beauty of what your resort has to offer this is a great place to stay. Scenic beauty is personal to me. The stunning views of valleys, tea estates is not something that this coffee estate would offer. You will love the cottages experiencing a larger than life feel. The estate is home to hundreds of bird species taking you totally away from the city life's hustle bustle. Food is good but not sumptuous as such.
- Cottages are awesome. A seperate lounge area, seperate bed area, a private garden and huge bathroom with bath tub. The room also has a glass view of the estate. But please do not opt for the jacuzzi room. You will not get hot water to enjoy this facility. The heater is the same for the bathroom and the jacuzzi hence by the time the jacuzzi fills up the water is almost like room temperature
- The food cuisine is good and simplistic. If your a North Indian don't expect Tandoori naan, butter naan or chicken tikka. If your looking for Coorg cuisines, even Neer Dosa is not there for serving. Which clearly indicates what I mean by the food not being sumptuous.

Overall, given that the accomodation is pretty expensive and not budget friendly as such which is the case across Coorg unless you opt for a decent homestay, the resort has to offer the following for better experience -
- Include all meals. Not just breakfast and dinner.
- Include hi-tea and evening snacks
- Please do something about the jacuzzi. Either offer it with what is expected of it or don't provide it at all or least inform the guest about this.

I can't end without mentioning that the hospitality by the staff was fantastic!!

Room tip: - Sedans will have to go through 1km bumpy drive - Don't opt for jacuzzi cottage as for the jacuzzi you will not get hot water

Old Kent Estate is one of the top twelve destinations in Coorg. The place is quiet, serene and comfortable. The eight cottages are quite luxurious and spacious. The bed is comfortable and there is enough sitting area around. The bathroom is huge with a seperate area for pedicure and tub. The lodge has a well equipped library, a mini theatre and board games. The Perch serves breakfast and dinner. Chef Susheel Srivastav dishes out great cuisine. He served us stuffed 'Litthi Chokha'- a specialty of Bihar, which was really delicious. The menu is planned well every night. The breakfast is also quite sumptuous and caters to different palates . There are South Indian dishes, paranthas, waffles, French toast etc etc. Snacks are served throigh out the day. We had different pakoras and pastas which were good. Over all the property is lovely amidst a huge forest and coffee estate. The walking trail guided by Mr Sampath Kumar is very interesting and informative. The staff is very efficient and helpful. Overall a great experience.

Really comfortable cottages. Awesome plantation trail with Mr. Sampath( very cordial person) on day 1. Reason for our so remarkable stay is Mr. Binu Rajendra who is the Estate Manager but he is based in Chennai. He ensured our stay is so comfortable and co ordinated all the aspects of our stay. A big thanks to him to make our stay unforgettable. Customer service at its best is Binu. Property is situated in an awesome location and the morning sun rise is not to be missed as recommended by Mr. Binu. We all thoroughly enjoyed the stay and we will come back again!!!

The property seems to be frozen in time, just takes you back to the British era..dont expect this as a five star property like taj tamara orange county, but you can expect it as a five star family run home stay .. the rooms are very spacious with just everything you need, i didn’t expect a tv in such an amazing property amidst coffee plantation, but trust me we didn’t watch there was soo much more to experience here, everyroom comes with a small garden you could sit in your room and watch the birds butterfly outside its like having a bedroom and a drawing room in one place . Westayed for 3 days and still we fell short on time ..
we loved the food, usually the menus are set but sometimes you can order ala cart too..
the staff is always there to help you ,special mention to mubarak at front desk very helpful and always ready with a solution..
the bathrooms are soo big with bath tub ,jacuzzi ( in only two rooms you can ask for one such room) and foot bath tub .. the whole experience is just amazing..
Remember you are in to the wild amongst the plantation which just looks like tropical rainforest , there could be insects or lizards in your room ( though the housekeeping always checks and keeps it clean) u might spot reptiles aswell but thats how it is suppose to be ..
the evening guided walk in the coffee plantation was an experience to experience,you can see how coffee cardamom black pepper grows .. its highly recommended..
The food is very delicious dont spend your time and money to eat outside , you will love it here ..
It was my birthday and it was really made special by the whole family at kent estate .. honestly you will never feel like leaving .. so dont give it a second thought just go with this place ..
