Dar Melody is situated in the heart of the medina in Fes. The rooms are spacious, clean and authentic, and the roof terrace an oasis of calm. Bernard and Laurence were superb hosts, showing us around the riad and booking a a tour guide and restaurant for the nights we were there. The breakfasts were the best we have had... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying with Laurence and Bernard for 3 nights last week and enjoyed every minute of our stay. You wouldn't guess that through that old wooden door, inside lays a beautiful living space. Laurence was especially hospitable and arranged a guided walking tour and transportation to other nearby areas, so that we can... More

We booked Dar Melody after reading reviews on TA. We were very impressed. Laurans and Bernard are very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable hosts. The riad is a beautiful house with a nice roof terrace with an excellent view. Our room was large and had plenty of room to relax. Breakfast is a very special occasion.

The house is beautiful and we were lucky enough to have the room on the top floor next to the roof terrace, which was huge and beautifully decorated. having read the reviews here, we asked the hosts to arrange an airport pickup for us which worked...

Bernard and Laurence have created a great atmosphere, an oasis in the busy Medina of Fès. They are true hosts, helping us find a good guide and restaurants, serving the best breakfast we had in all Morocco.

My husband and I booked this Riad through Tripadvisor reviews and so glad we did. We were so happy with our stay with Laurance & Bernard, they are such amazing hosts! We stayed 3 nights in June. Location is great and quiet. The Riad is beautifully restored and decorated. Splurge and stay in the Menzeh room on top floor, such... More

We stayed in Dar Melody for three nights and we really enjoyed it. The room was very nice and they have paid attention to the details such as free water bottles, different types of soap etc. Breakfast was magnificent both in quality and quantity. We really liked Laurence's orange jam and she even gave us some to take with us!... More

I can’t understand all of the hype surrounding this riad! Although the main points of the riad are nicely restored, there are other riads at roughly the same price which have done a far more impressive restoration and with better service. I had reserved 3 nights at Dar Melody months in advance. When I arrived unexpectedly a day early in... More

(And you want a free room for the driver) that day, we were full ............ it is true that we would have expected your... More

Laurence and Bernard were wonderful hosts during our 3 night stay in March. Dar Melody is beautifully restored and decorated. I loved looking at the ancient doors and windows. Breakfasts were varied and delicious. Laurence has a real sense of style and the table was set differently every morning. Bernard made crepes for our son each morning when he realized... More

We stayed at Dar Melody last week, and had a lovely time. Laurence and Bernard were very kind, and made us feel at home - they did whatever they could to accommodate us. The riad was great, we stayed in the room at the very top, the Menzah Room. It was very big, and decorated beautifully. We also took advantage... More
