very friendly people, Linda and Eid makes you very welcome from the moment you meet them, as was saiid, (hope I've spelt that right!) the taxi driver who picked us up from the airport. nothing is too much trouble. beds changed and rooms cleaned very frequently. (seemed like every day, actually!) lovely rooms, each with at least three balconies each, roof terrace is available for sitting in the sun, tea, coffee and sugar supplied at no extra charge. nothing but your clothes and toiletries are needed! location is out of town, so local shops are fairly sparce, but good for what there is. local coffee shop owned by some very nice people (Hassan makes you particularly welcome there) short walk to the pubs and restaurants in Luxor, but there are plenty of taxis and buses available to take you, if you fancy walking. Plenty of books and dvd's available if you don't feel like going out. Christmas day they took us, with their family (who were just as nice) to a little island on their boat which had nice soft and very fine sand. once we had eaten our 'picnic' we set sail to come back, but they took us a bit further up the Nile than planned so I could spread mums ashes in the Nile. Anything you want or need, you just need to ask. There is nothing in particular that I liked the best, I just loved all of it. If you want a friendly pub for drinks and/or food, then I highly recommend the kings head, opposite the Isis hotel. all in all, probably one of the best holidays I've ever had. Thank you, both for a very memorable time. hope to see you all again soon.
