I thoroughly enjoyed my stay! Every detail was in place, the hotel was beautiful and relaxing. Excursions are readily available for those who choose activities. The hotel and grounds are a pleasure by themselves. The staff is neat and professional. The restaurants; 1902, Terrace, and Bar provide quick service and delicious servings. Caralene speaks good English and keeps everything moving while guests dine with the beautiful view. My butler, Shawky anticipated my needs and ensured that my stay was comfortable. Mohamed (“Uncle”) at the bar took care of me for a couple of hours as I waited for my room to be prepared since I arrived early. I recommend this venue and I will return again at my earliest opportunity!

Annarosa W. Friends - 19/03/2019 AccorHotels certified review

Although the Hotel is very grand and the accommodation is excellent, the restaurants were a disappointment. As a resident being accosted on the Terrace Restaurant by the person in charge with the remark “only residents allowed to eat in this restaurant” when we had already been there for two days was off putting. It may have been a difficulty with language but perhaps a polite request for a room number might have been better. We enjoyed an excellent meal in your 1902 restaurant but the same could not be said of your other eating places. We also stayed at your other Hotel in Luxor The Winter Palace which did live up to all expectations, The Old Cataract sadly did not.

Our room and service were wonderful. We were disappointed with our evening at 1902. There was apparently not enough staff to accommodate the guests. One member only did flambé while one managed the room. Our waiter poured one glass of wine when dinner arrived and never came to ask or pour another glass. They cleared our plates (they did ask about desserts which we declined) and we sat for 25 minutes watching the small staff take care of guests. We finally got the attention to get our check and take our bottle to our room.

Fabulous 2 nights at The Old Cataract

Customer review rating 4.9/5

Capricornia 1. Solo - 19/03/2019 AccorHotels certified review

It was memorable. The room is spacious and looks exactly like the one I booked on the website. Comfortable bed and furniture. 2 huge balconies with lounge chairs and sofas overlooking the Nile & Elephantine island, the deserts and the horizon beyond. Just magical. Huge bathroom with bath tub dressing room, coffee and tea room with capsules coffee machine, bar fridge, sitting room with day bed and sofa. 2 TVs etc etc. I had dinner 2x at The Terrace and it was yummy. Dessert was a bit of a disappointment and the maitre'd waived the charge Breakfast at The Oriental was a bit touch and go. The pastries, croissants etc. I don't think they are freshly baked but okay.

Fabulous Old Cataract Hotel

TripAdvisor rating 4.5/5

capricornia19 Solo travel - 15/03/2019 TripAdvisor review

I stayed for 2 nights on 27 & 28 Feb 2019. My suite with the Nile river view certainly lived up to expectations.Room has fabulous furnishings, comfy bed, & dressing room, coffee with capsule machine in a separate room, huge bathroom with bathtub,separate shower, toilet & bidet & nice toiletry. There are 2 balconies with lounge chairs, tables & sofas. I had 2 dinners at The Terrace and on both occasions the food are quite delicious. Lemon tart was a bit of a let down and they waived the charge. Such a great waiter 👍. Breakfast at the Oriental was a bit touch & go. Pastries & croissants definitely were not baked in the same morning. Luckily I wasn't particularly hungry. The other annoying bit is the taxes. They added sales & service taxes on your bill when it's charged to your room after meal/drinks which is ok by me as I expected that. But then, when you settled the final bill at check out, they added more tax on top of everything else. I'm totally bamboozled. Unfortunately I missed out on seeing the Agatha Christie's suite 😒
