My partner and I found Riad Papillon at the Destinations exhibition in London and met with the delightful owners Mike and Louise. We love their environmentally friendly approach and their passion for Morocco-this is why we chose their place (as well as the fact we got an amazing deal for staying there for 10 days!)
The staff were quite incredible the service level is not really comparable to other hotels because they basically take care of you as if you were a long lost friend. Abdilla even went to the post office for us (2 miles away) because we couldnt find anywhere to buy stamps!!!
We ate at several different restaurants-cafe de la poste, la studio, maison arabe but I have to say that none of these was as good as the lamb tagine that Hasna and Meriem cooked for us on our arrival evening. They even gave us a free cookery demo.
We felt totally at home here and even though our room was a bit smaller than some of the higher priced riads we have stayed at before it was cosy and full of character.
Highly recommend this place to all.
