What a delightful riad. It was easy to find on the map and we were able to park our hire car nearby and walk the short distance through the residential back streets to the front door. We were welcomed by Kamal, the riad manager, who made us feel very welcome whilst we chatted over mint tea and Moroccan pastries.
Our room was on the ground floor and was comfortably equipped with everything we needed for our stay including air conditioning, which was especially welcome as the outside temperature was 38 degrees Celsius!
We had arranged to eat at the riad on the first night and we were presented with a lavish feast of Moroccan salads, couscous and tagine. Breakfast was also plentiful with choices of different Moroccan bread and loads of freshly-made coffee.
Kamal ensured we had a map to find our way to the souks (and more importantly our way back!), but thankfully we already knew our way around. He was more than willing to help and made sure we had his mobile number should we need it.
Elizabeth and John were wonderful hosts and always stopped to have a chat and make sure we were enjoying our stay. as they did with all the guests.
All in all, Riad Elizabeth is a great place to stay and we would highly recommend it. The décor is very modern and the whole place has a feel of calm and peace, which is welcome from the busy city outside.
