My mother and I travelled to Marrakech for a 3 night stay, to fulfil a long-held dream of hers to experience the culture, people and food of this vibrant city. On my in-law's recommendation, I booked the Riad Elizabeth for our stay and for the 6 months preceding our trip, I received many useful and informative emails from the owners, John and Elizabeth, suggesting both trips that we may enjoy during our stay (which they booked for us), and promptly answering the many questions I had in a friendly and relaxed way. The riad is really a home from home. The staff are charming and happy to assist. One evening we arrived back fairly late and I mentioned that I was going to buy some water from the honesty bar on the roof terrace. The night watchman said he would get us water, and when we asked for large bottles, he disappeared off for about 10 minutes. We were chatting with some other guests, so didn't notice the delay until he re-appeared through the front door, having run to the local store to purchase large bottles for us - there were only small ones in the honesty bar! Talk about five star service! John and Elizabeth were gracious hosts, relaxed and friendly and full of stories of their time in Marrakech. The manager Samira was an angel, and was available all the time for restaurant recommendations (and bookings), taxi organising and to ensure our stay was living up to expectation. It certainly did, and more. The room (we stayed in Francesca, a twin room) was roomy and nicely decorated, as is the rest of the riad. A lovely bathroom with walk-in shower and fluffy towels. The chef served up a delicious meal our first night, as we arrived late, which was a great introduction to the local cuisine. All in all, a memorable experience, and one that I hope we will be repeating again. I would not hesitate to recommend Riad Elizabeth to anyone wanting to visit Marrakech, who wants to get immersed in the culture and people of the city, but still return to an oasis of calm and relaxation.
