This place is gorgeous. Rooms were nice and everyone was helpful. My only issue was Dinner. We arrived in the afternoon. Were told that dinner was 16 euros per person and that there weren't restaurants nearby, which upon further research we found to be false. Dinner was delicious but minuscule. The chicken tangine was a 1/3 of a chicken breast...

Having ventured into the heart of Taroudant old town in a hire car, we were despairing of finding a decent hotel in the middle of all the mayhem. We were rescued by a helpful (as always) man on a moped who said "follow me" - so we did, and how glad we were! What a surprise, behind the high old...

I couldn't understand previous reviews which said the staff were unhelpful, there was one chap who wasn't the smartest but otherwise the staff were fine. However, if you don't speak French or Arabic you might have difficulties. We were welcomed with mint tea and sweets. There was a bottle of water and more sweets in our room. The room was...

The gardens with the pool were a delight but the non service minded staff was a real let down. Conveniently located in easy walking distance of the medina/souk. Rooms ok and quite large. Night manager was the only one who served us with a smile. Dinner so so and again breakfast mediocre. So much potential!

What a surprise! What a beautiful palace behind the entrance door! We loved every second there. Very nice personnel, all women, not invasive, everything was so well maintained, peace and silence, the Garden of Eden. Useless to say how beautiful was our room!

We went to this B&B because of Trip Advisor raving review. What we found was a beautiful space but a dysfunctional establishment. The staff was unhelpful, the room upkeep was faulty, dinner was terrible, and overall the place seems to be disintegrating. This is a shame because it is beautiful and has great potential.

Taroudant isn't an obvious must for a short trip to Morocco, but that's what we liked about it. It's a walled city with a maze of streets and alleys that played an important role in the history of the country, as it was once capital of the Saadians. Today you'll enjoy the souks and the flavor of a Moroccan city...

Having spent a week we can highly recommend this delightful traditional riad in the heart of Taroudant. This is a female-run establishment and we learned owned by a Belgian doctor. The staff were very attentive and happy - lots of singing in the kitchen. Zorra (?) the receptionist was a delight. Food excellent and plentiful. Lots of hot water, tranquil...

A lovely warm welcome and equally lovely meal on arrival. We needed to get a taxis from the airport, £35 but was worth with it as hotel tucked away. Staff all genuinely happy and friendly and nothing too much trouble. Lots of interest in local area and staff half to co ordinate with excursion agents, which are reasonably priced. Quiet...

The riad was undoubtedly beautiful. There was a lot of space at the oumensour, with salles and lounging space galore. What was missing was a regular presence within the riad - for example in the morning there might be up to 5 women working the daytime shift. In the evening, you were lucky to see anyone t all, or if...
