The key to a fantastic visit to Marrakech is your choice of where to stay. The Dar Nour El Houda is the perfect Riad to come home to at the end of a hard day's haggling in the Souk. The riad itself and the efforts of Patrick, Liliane and Ghita make this a truely wonderful place to stay. This is Patrick and Liliane's home and they go out of their way to ensure it feels like your home too.
Like most riads it is hidden away in a small alleyway off a relatively quiet street/alley; so I do recommend the transfer: we where met at the airport and taken by taxi to a small square inside the medina walls where Patrick was waiting for us and then led us on foot through the narrow lanes to the riad, seemless and problem free.
The house is a beatifully kept, comfortable and welcoming place. Everywhere the attention to detail really showed and all the rooms, lounge areas and the terrace have been carefully put together to create soothing calming spaces perfect to relax in.
The dinner we had on our first night was fantastic (would definitely recommend) and the breakfast each morning was delicious and beautifully presented and served on the terrace in the morning sunshine.
The thing that stood out most for me though was the hospitality, Patrick, Liliane and Ghita were simply lovely. Kind and friendly and always smiling. Embarrassingly our French was virtually non-existant, however Patrick and Liliane made every effort to talk to us in basic English which made all the difference. I only wish we could have spoken to them more.
