We stayed at the Riad recently for 2 nights over the New Year holiday period. Gary and Steve were simply lovely. Our flight arrived at 830am and they were kind enough to let us check in quite early with quite a lavish breakfast spread waiting for us. The riad itself is lovely with a bright, cheery courtyard and mint tea... More

Riad Al-Bushra was perfect for my winter sunshine long weekend break. The building is traditional and beautiful but with modern, comfortable facilities. It's small and feels exclusive. Gary and Steve made me feel like I was staying with friends and it was really nice to sit and chat over mint tea while they helped us to plan our visit. Fantastic... More

Enjoyed the stay very much. Gary and Steve are wonderful and very helpful with suggestions of where to eat and sights to see. The breakfast was plentiful and delicious. Fatima is a great chef and very sweet. Location is good and the interior garden is very peaceful.

This is probably the best Riad you could find in Marrakech for the price you pay. Garry and Steve have invested years of time to stay and explore different Riads all over Morocco before they opened the Al-Bushra. You can easily see their effort in their choices of room design, quality furniture, and most importantly their friendly service. This is... More

My partner and I stayed at the Riad Al Bushra for four nights over the New Year period. Our hosts Steve and Gary were extremely welcoming and helpful. This Riad is an oasis of calm in an otherwise frenetic city. It is beautifully furnished and maintained and the bedrooms are exquisite. Our transfers to and from the airport were arranged... More

Everything is impressive even before arrival. Garry, the owner, took care if eveything we needed days before arrival date. Since then, he continues to be a great host for our visit until the day we left. Feel like staying in a friend's house. Highly reccommend place to stay.

Marrakech - wow! ...and Riad Al-Bushra - what a hidden gem! Located in the heart of the Medina District, it might feel like living in a maze as you really are in the thick of it, but that is part of the charm! Al-Bushra is run by two lovely English guys, Gary and Steve who are very friendly and helpful.... More

Staying here was one of the highlights of the trip. Excellent rooms in all respects, lovely roof top terrace and courtyard to sit in, fabulous breakfasts (still can taste the lemon croissants), and great hosts. Gary and Steve were so helpful and felt like friends by the end of the trip. We went with a big group of people who... More

Beautiful riad, comfortable and well appointed rooms, fantastic hosts, lavish breakfasts, wonderfully peaceful. I would recommend anyone and everyone to visit Marrakech and stay with Gary and Steve. I stayed 3 nights in total, just before Christmas and after my tour last week.
