« Victorian Opulence on the Nile »

What a gorgeous, grand hotel. One expects to see Hercule Poirot walk around the corner. The setting is incredible, overlooking Elephantine Island and the First Cataract. The staff was superb and attentive to every detail and the food was fantastic. The grounds are immaculately maintained and are like something out of a movie set. Staying here is an epic experience that should not be missed.

The secret to any great establishment success is the staff that run it. The staff at the Cataract Hotel are truly wonderful. From reception to restaurants to room service. Excellent people.

« A perfect escape »

Positive. The venue is beautiful, and well looked after. Very clean and fresh. The staff were kind and friendly. Everyone was happy to chat and help and make you feel welcome, no doubt made easier because there were only about 10 guests. But, having said that, I think they are naturally friendly - they're Egyptian. The service was good, and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was good, as were the dinners. Desserts were overpriced and disappointing.

« An absolutely amazing place. »

We have recently returned from a 10 day trip to Egypt, where we stayed at the Sofitel Old Cataract in Aswan on our second last day. I can honestly say this hotel is absolutely stunning. The pictures don't do it justice! We were up graded to a larger suite in the newer building of the hotel (with a view of the Nile and the sand dunes of the Sahara) and the room was magnificent. The hotel was immaculate and the interior was absolutely beautiful. The atmosphere was relaxed and the staff were fantastic. Watching the sun set over the Nile from beside the pool was just the icing on the cake! I can't recommend this hotel enough!

« One of the most beautiful hotels in the World! »

We have been to lots of hotels and resorts, and the Old Cataract ranks as one of the most beautiful experiences. The view is stunning, the gardens and grounds designed and kept with utmost care, the interior decoration of exquisite taste, and the service gracious and appropriate. The spa is gorgeous! This is a jewel on the Nile. Don't miss this oasis! Thank you Tharwat for your great service.
