As a place to eat, IWI is really pleasant : You’ll most likely sit in the huge garden, at a shady parasol table, where you’ll be surrounded by lovely trees and well away from the main road. The service is good, the atmosphere calm and uplifting, and the food, whilst not the best I’ve ever tasted in Kenya, is dependable enough. We’d eaten lunch here and enjoyed all of that, which led us to assume that the hotel itself would be equally high quality. How wrong we were.... The chalet type room was very dated and poorly maintained, feeling a bit dirty and dilapidated. It lacked a/c (they brought me a fan but it was very old and noisy and I ended up having to switch it off). The shower seemed not to have any hot water and the bathroom / wc window was right onto the path outside, meaning - ahem - privacy was in short supply. The front door was steel framed glass and again, not very private as the curtain was torn so passers by could see right into the sleeping area. The door handle came off in my hand as it had snapped and not been repaired. At breakfast, there was really nothing much. A few sausages and hard boiled eggs. They made me an omelette and that was as good as it got. You don’t expect The Ritz when staying in a place like Embu, and as I say, dinner al fresco at the IWI is a treat, so it’s not a single - star verdict. But if you’re after accommodation, don’t be fooled by those neatly manicured lawns.

Good Music a mixture of all genres played by the Dee Jay, great service offered by waitresses and waiters who are overflowing with courtesy. Fresh food that is nicely cooked and served. Covid19 protocols adhered to the latter.

The service is excellent. They are having a band today as well. The music is good. A nice place for kids as well. We had kienyeji chicken for lunch. As for the freshly made juice as well, it's good. As the family is having fun, you can as well sneak off and catch a game of football in the restaurant 😉
