Outstanding facilities and unparalleled service!!! From top to bottom, a legendary property thoughtfully and tastefully renovated for the 21st century. Amazing dining options and centrally located. We will return soon and our only regret is that we did not have a chance to stay longer.

We had a great time at Old Cataract hotel. The sunset on the terrace was amazing. The cocktails are very good too. On top of that, we got a nice introduction on the History of the hotel from Ramadan. He was very responsive and professionnal. I strongly recommend the hotel and its staff.

This hotel was incredible, we loved every second of our stay here. The staff went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. We loved taking in the sunset from the beautiful deck and keeping out of the heat. Marvel, our guest relations officer, was amazing.
