On the basis of previous excellent reviews we booked and stayed at Riad Matham for 4 nights in July 2013 - we were not disappointed in any respect and really had a most marvellous experience from the outset.
Without exception the owner Thierry and his staff (Fatima 1 and 2!) proved to be sincerely welcoming, helpful and professional. They demonstrated a genuine understanding of excellent customer service.
We used the airport transfer service arranged by Thierry and this went without any problem. We were personally greeted by Thierry at the pre-arranged drop off point who guided us through the labyrinth of walkways to the Riad. It is difficult to know how the Riad could be found by a new visitor without this valuable help, therefore it is a recommended option.
The view of the front door belies how beautifully the Riad has been renovated, furnished and decorated. The courtyard, with central plunge pool is delightful and the rooms have been finished to a similar standard. Our room on the first floor was clean, spacious and comfortable, with a large bathroom and separate shower. We found the accommodation extremely comfortable in all respects.
The breakfast provided as part of the room rate is fresh and well presented, as are the optional evening meals.
Location wise the Riad is perfectly situated for visiting the many Souks and main square. All are within a short walk of 10 minutes maximum. An excellent location therefore to experience a flavour of the excitement that is Marrakech.
Our short holiday proved to very enjoyable and we felt that Thierry is providing an excellent service which is extremely good value for money. We therefore have no hesitation in recommending Riad Matham to others.
