The place used to be an icon in Eastern province, it's now a dirty, poorly managed skeleton hotel. I spend new year eve in a dirty stinky room and paid ksh 10000 for it. The management should be ashamed of the sorry state of this hotel. I will never go back to such poorly managed hotel. On the brighter side,...

As is our family tradition,we drop by Izaak for lunch when driving to Meru. In December,we passed by and the kind of treatment we got from the hotel staff put us off...we sat outside to relax and wait for the staff to come to our table take the order. After waiting for some time i decided to approach a lady...

It started from getting the entrance:they need a visible sign for visitors The receptionist are the most confused ,Rude people ever. The room booked for wasn't the one we were initially given and if it were not for us querying then they would have let us sleep in a room we hadn't paid for. The room we were later given...

Googled the hotel and decided to spend a night there with my family after a function in Embu town. From the online photos, we were looking forward to a fulfilling night but apart from the gardens which were somewhat appealing, everything else was an exact opposite of whatever is posted online. The room looked medieval, stuffy with stained ceiling, loose...

We spent two nights in the newly refurbished standard rooms and at first i was worried about the possibility of noise being so close to the outdoor gardens which also serve as an outdoor dining area; It was peaceful and quite serene. Loved the room ambiance, must have been the mustard wall colour. The African food was amazing especially the...

It's unlikely that I posts reviews but this one I had to.. because my experience today being 1st Dec 2016, I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy! We waited at the reception for awhile before they could confirm our rooms, eventually No. 14 and No. 15 they were. This was the first time to spend here.. so we were...

In short, the waiters are rude and cocky. Their prices are high for absolutely no reason. The parking is also a bit dodgy. Their food is also not all that. I had a burger whose meat was mostly flour and it took a while to arrive.

I took a visitor from the UK to Isaak Walton on the 29th of July 2016 checking out on the 30th . I had defied all the trip advises because I had visited the hotel the previous week and I found when they were refurbishing the hotel. In making the choice I was gambling with my own reputation because I...

This place is lovely. It's so green with a lot of trees that keep the place dust free, cool and reduces noise from the traffic. Our rooms were nice and clean. The issues were the sink in our bathroom was leaking and the windows were not closing properly. We also had to sleep a few rooms away from our other...

Whatever is happening to this icon in Embu town is a sad story. The rooms are run down, the beds are old & the linen is horrifyingly old. The towels are clocking mileage beyond what a cotton cloth should be to a point they are not white. The painting in some parts of the room is off. The water is...
