This is a lovely small hotel, situated in the heart of Taroudant but totally secluded from the noise and bustle of the town. The hotel is built in the traditional adobe style and decorated with soft, muted tones of grey and brown. The rooms are spacious and the bathrooms enormous. There is a beautiful swimming pool in the hotel garden, plus a separate hot tub. The garden is quite charming, with a fountain and native shrubs and flowers. There is a roof terrace that provides a fine view over the town. There are no room TVs but there is a multi-channel TV in the common lounge that offers access to all the usual international news media. Wifi is also available but the signal is stronger in the public areas than in the rooms.
The all-female staff are more proficient in French than English, but we managed to make our needs known easily enough. You will be asked at the time of reservation or check in if you want to have dinner in the hotel, because the kitchen buys fresh ingredients that day depending on how many diners they have. We would definitely recommend dining there. Both breakfast and dinner are served in the open, in the garden. We found the staff friendly and helpful. Note that credit cards are not accepted, so bring cash or else get some from one of the many local ATM machines or banks. All in all we found this a charming place to stay.
