When you first pull up outside the Rhiad it doesn't look much from the outside. It's in a small backstreet with various stalls selling cheap watches and hi-fi stuff. When you then enter you are greeted with a cup of delicious mint tea while you check in and then taken taken to your room.
The Rhiad is very traditional with stone staircases, which, whilst looking slightly worn in places, adds to the romantic traditional of the property. Our room was beautiful overlooking the courtyard and main Mosque which is lit up at night. The bed and bathroom were covered in fresh rose petals which were replaced every day when the room was serviced. The bathroom itself was large and comfortable and although showed some wear and tear, it was in keeping with the atmosphere of the Rhiad (some minor knocks and bumps in stone is only to be expected).
The staff were polite and attentive without being "in your face" - a pleasant retreat after the attentions of street marketers of Marrakech.
Eating wise, the breakfast was lovely (and very entertaining thanks to a beautiful and playful kitten who enjoys saying hello to everyone in the morning - ladies watch out for any flappy bits on your handbags!). The french restaurant attached to the Rhiad and the Moroccon restaurant were lovely. The Indian restaurant on the top balcony was lovely food but poor service. The lunch there is fairly basic.
We would definitely stay there again.
