Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We ate here several times during our stay in Abu Simbel and it was always very yummy. They offer meals with fish or meat, but also vegetarian food. Our guide book said that they take some time to cook the meals, but our meals was always served between 10-15 minutes. The staff is very nice and helpful, especially if you have "special request" regarding the food. You can sit on the terrace or on the first floor - both provide a great view to the lake (also, if it's too hot ouside, they have tables inside). Very good restaurant!

from the moment i arrived at Eskaleh eco lodge and was greeted by a cool refreshing hibiscus tea,i immediately felt at home. The location of the lodge beside lake was dreamy and the lodge itself was so full of character and had a warm ambiance feel about it. The food was amazing both the complimentary breakfast which there was plenty of and a nice variety, and the dinner which was offered as an extra and which i highly recommend. The room had everything you could wish for,great a.c,big bathroom and towels,good fridge and lovely outdoor patio, and the whole place was spotless. and the wi-fi wasn't too bad either by Egyptian standards,the place was so quiet at night it was easy to get a good nights sleep. the location was about 15 walk to the Abu Simbel temples and 5 minutes walk to the nearest shop, so all in all,Eskaleh Eco Lodge ticked all the boxes for everything. the rooftop area was massive with plenty of seating and provided an amazing panoramic view over the lake. most of all....were the staff...i have traveled the world and stayed at many different places but i felt extremely privileged to have been able to meet the people who help run the lodge,from the gardeners to the cleaners,housekeeping and cooks,they were all such warm wonderful and friendly people,how many hotel staff in your experience offer to take you suitcase to the bus station,i think that says it all. my whole experience at this lodge was nothing short of amazing and i will be coming back in september because of my experience here. thank you so much to Fickry,Shadee,Noree,Mohammod T.,the 3 Ahmed's,the 2 Ali's,,Fatima,Lilo,Kinara,Mabrook,Hub,Samaha,Osman,Abdul,Hamdy,Lezeer,Saba,Hajaj,Hassan,and Mazdy. miss you all and see you soon.

The staff were so kind. The food was really good. The air conditioning was fantastic after a hot day of exploring. The hotel was very clean. This is not the place for people who need 5 stars services. If you would like good value for your money and experience a traditional hotel with a wonderful staff, then this is the place for you.

We decided not to stay in this hotel as it seemed a bit basic on the pictures (and it probably is), but had dinner here instead, which I can recommend. Very friendly owner and staff, they went out of their way to make things comfortable for us on their terrace. The food was definitely decent enough, not cheap, but correct enough.

Since this lodge really caters to larger groups, as two individual guests, for both lunch and dinner we had to wait until the groups had been served and what was served to us, looked like their 'leftovers'. We didn't eat any of it.

This review is only for their restaurant. We didn’t stay at their lodge. Their restaurant is a hidden gem. If you are looking for a good meal in Abu Simbel, go to this place – especially if you are a vegetarian or a vegan. They took care of all our food requirements and restrictions and still made meals that were not only delicious but plentiful too. This was the first time we tasted Nubian cuisine and we all liked it. The surroundings were also pleasant.

There's not much to this restaurant: mainly you are at the tender mercies of the hotel chef and his staff. Fortunately, they are attentive and skilled. Dinner at night sitting on the patio under a ceiling fan on the fringe of the Sahara goes a long way to make up for other lacks.

Great meals, small portions but delicious. Friendly staff. Eating under the stars was so lovely. If you're in Abu Simbel the options are limited so do make a stop here and also stay here.

Staying and eating at this Lodge was necessary in order to visit Abu Simbel. The food was adequate but not to our liking.

Built by Nubians who seek to preserve their heritage, this rustic lodge was divine. Its architecture was entrancing, and the rooms cozy, with thick curved brick walls. The food was wonderful, as was the service. Highly recommended. [And a final hint: safe some room for shopping at the small store attached. It had great gifts and ZERO abusive salespeople. You really could take your time to shop. We wish we had bought more while we were there, for the selection was of the highest quality,]

We very much enjoyed our visit here during our time in Egypt. The one thing that stood out for us was the great staff.

I must agree with a previous poster who said she wanted to take the chef home with her. The food was authentic Nubian fare and so very divinely delicious.

Our group stayed at this lovely local lodge. To recommend it are the yummy meals. We had very fresh & well-seasoned tilapia along with tasty side dishes for lunch. Dinner included a delicious veggie tagine along with chicken. Breakfast was adequate if not unique. Our sleeping room was charming although not super comfortable. Beds are firm. The bathroom is adequate. We all suggest adding hangers in the closets or at least hooks for coats, etc. we enjoyed the outdoor seating areas. The reason to stay here is to support the local Nubian family and village.

This cook deserves a raise. Some of the best meals ever, and they have wine! Order the grilled tilapia.
