“Great Riad”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

Had a great stay at the Riad, all of the staff including the owners John and Elizabeth are very conscientious , going out of there way to make sure your stay is as enjoyable as possible and your needs are being met. They can arrange trips or guides as needed or organize reservations at nearby restaurants that you would never find yourself. The Riad has a good location a few minute walk to the souks and the main square

This was my third trip to Marrakech in the last 8 years, but the first staying at Riad Elizabeth.
The location in the northern district of the Medina was perfect for acessing the Museum of Marrakech, the Medersa (religious school) and the colourful and vibrant souks as well as the main square. The hosts Elizabeth and John were very welcoming and went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and memorable. They organised a sumptious dinner on the beautiful little roof terrace upon our arrival and orientated us to everything Marrakech had to offer so that we could make the most out of our experience. The riad is very clean, comfortable and the colour palette of black/white/ and hints of red and silver, make it an eclectic and stylish riad. The Semarine Souk in the Medina had something for everyone and the horse and carraige ride from the main square to the Marjorelle Gardens gave a flavour of the sights, sounds and smells of this atmospheric city with the backdrop of the Atlas mountains in the distance. The highlight of the trip was Elizabeth's suggestion of a hammam experience at Marrakech's premier bath house, Les bains De Marrakech near the Saadian Tombs. It is a beautiful oasis of calm and has a relaxing atmosphere with the most wonderful background scent of Bitter Orange Blossom in the air. I had a heavenly exfoliant scrub and deep massage over 2-3 hours and felt wonderful after the experience. Can't wait to go back. I packed alot into my 5 night stay in Marrakech at Riad Elizabeth and the hosts, the lovely Elizabeth and John, certainly helped to make that happen with their kind suggestions on what to see, shop and eat. I would highly recommend this riad. I shall be back in the New Year.

We stayed in a couple of Riad’s on our trip, and this was not the traditional Riad (it is decorated in a more contemporary style) But unlike many of the traditional Riad’s we stayed at, everything worked the rooms were a good size, the plumbing worked and everyone was so helpful and friendly. Dagmara was extremely helpful and put herself out to make sure that we weren’t inconvenienced, even going out of her way to get money back from the cab driver that ripped us off (a fact of life in Marrakesh. John was an excellent and congenial host and the honest bar on the roof was such a bonus late at night, it felt more like a guest in someone’s home who was looking out for you rather than a customer who was ripe for the picking (again a fact of life in Marrakesh) and I would definitely recommend it.

We had an absolutely wonderful stay at Riad Elizabeth. Before we arrived, Elizabeth was very helpful providing suggestions for our trip via email. Upon arrival, we were given a warm welcome, and Dagmara was happy to answer all of our questions and provide any assistance we needed. The location was perfect and the food was delicious! I will definitely return the next time I go back to Marrakech.

This is our 'end of year' piece of Heaven that we have visited every year for the past 5 years, and will continue to do so, Insha'Allah.....John & Elizabeth go 'out of their way' to ensure a fabulous time for their guests, as does the new Manager, Dagmara, whom we met for the first time this year. The other staff at the Riad hasn't changed whilst we have been there - Bahija is the fabulous cook who doesn't speak much English, and always has a beautiful smile on her face... Leila and Hind are the girls who sing and chatter whilst doing their work, and Yousef the Night Gardian, who has assisted us back to the Riad on a couple of occasions late at night in 'the early days' when we had 'lost our way'. Thank you all so much for yet another enjoyable time spent with our extended 'virtual family' !!

We spent 3 days here and just loved it, the service was second to none. Thankyou for the packed lunch you prepared Dagmara it was very welcome on the train to Fez. The riad is close to the centre and nothing was too much trouble, also the cook served the best veggie tagine we ate during our stay in Morroco.

Wonderful experience. We were so well looked after in this delightful riad.
Nothing was too much trouble for Dagmara and the rest of the staff.
Good food, good fun, good experience.
Thank you to you all.
