“No better place to stay in the Gorge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

I do not have enough good things to say about my wife's and my experience at Chez Pierre. This once Belgian owned establishment is now owned and run by two Berber Brothers. We were fortunate enough to meet one, Ismail, who was simply amazing. We have never felt more welcome in a place while we have traveled for two months through Mali, Senegal, Mauritania, and Morocco. Ismail and his staff were always amazing, the rooms spotless and beautifully decorated, and the grounds quite amazing.
Unfortunately, the brother who is a chef was out of town, but the staff still managed a decent dinner for the price and the breakfast that comes with the base room rate it top notch.
We left wanting only to stay another night, but knowing we must move on. As I write this, I wish I was having tea with Ismail and planning another hike in the gorge.
We'll definitely return.

Positives:
Dinner (duck with red-wine sauce) was delicious and the host, Ismail welcomed us with kind hospitality. The rooms were spacious and beautiful. Waking to such a breathtaking scenery was the highlight of the trip.

Negatives:
The path to our room was not well-lit. We had to resort to using our mobile phones as torches. This would not have been very much an issue but there were many possible hazards - stone steps and an empty swimming pool. Also, the heating was not working very well. (it stopped during the night)

Thanks for your review, we are glad you enjoyed your stay and the cuisine! Sorry that you had a problem finding your room - usually the garden and all the paths to the rooms are well lit, but one of us may have knocked the switch by mistake and we will pay particular attention to checking this in future - thanks for letting us know. We hope we may be able to welcome you again some time, Ismail and all the team at Chez Pierre.

Warm welcome on a cold day. Tea drinking around the French woodburner, followed by a guided tour of the picturesque gardens and terraces leading to the rooms. Stunning views both up and down the gorge. Dinner - what can we say! - a medley of surprises, all introduced and described by Driss, who served us impeccably. Delightful after dinner conversation with Ismail, who can also offer personally guided tours throughout Morocco. We loved the corner cabinet and its treasures in the dining room...

Room Tip: Ask for room at low level if mobility is an issue.

Enjoyed our brief overnight stay at the hotel. This was organised through camel Safaries. Large room and beautifully presented. The food was excellent and would return again to enjoy the scenery which we didn't really have time to enjoy fully.

Spent 3 great nights in Chez Pierre at the 27 km mark of Dades Gorge. Well thought out hotel with some good views, large rooms and a nice pool/terrace area (that really wasn't useful for us in Feb but will be really nice once the weather warms up). Staff was very friendly and helpful. We chose it because it was the only place we could find with heat in the rooms (although centrally controlled, and not on all the time, but it was warm enough). The food was really good and professionally presented although maybe a bit expensive.

There is some decent walking down through the palmaeries directly below the hotel, or you can take a share taxi down to "Monkey Fingers" (ask to be let out at Kasbah Marghad). This is a very spectacular loop hike up a side canyon with some fun scrambling. We were able to do it on our own with a hand-drawn map provided by the hotel but it wouldn't be a bad idea to hire a guide (150-200dr). For the same price you can also have a guide take you for a hike up to the top of the ridge (we planned to do this but it got too windy).

We enjoyed a lot our stay Chez Pièrre. Hotel is really nice, room very charm, with nice local decoration. It is located in a nice area within Dades Gorges. At night is wonderful to look at the stars from the room terrace. Food is excellent, the best food in all our holidays.
Staff is very friendly and focus on making our stay comfortable.
I strongly recommend you to stay in this auberge if you are in the area.

The auberge is located very close to the Dades Gorges and the place is really charming. The room was cozy with a good (hard) bed, though it would have been nice with a door instead of a curtain to the toilet. The food was excellent, some the best we had in Morocco. The staff was very friendly and we felt very welcome. We didn't use the terrases or outdoor facilities (like the swimming pool) due to lack of time, but it looked very nice and charming. We also found the place quiet and we had a good sleep. We can definately recommend this place.
