Wow, I also stayed at Gately on Nile last month and I am amazed to see the previous reviews where guests relate such extreme experiences at somewhere I found completely unique and more than lived up to any expectation I had for the money paid.
Thankyou Brenda and Edwin who took such good care of me, even rescuing Smokey ( the resident cat) from following my heels into the conveniently located, comfortable room of the main house after a relaxing afternoon in the thatched garden banda.
My budget did not allow for the decadence of style found across the road but I overheard the adjoining breakfast table raving about their serene cottage and views so I really hope to upgrade my stay next time I return.
I just loved all the attentive touches found in this unique premise and would highly recommend a little bartering on arrival if you need to help the hip pocket.
