My second visit in six months,so it has something special. It has the best location in town and the ex-pat owners are extremely welcoming and look after their guests really well. From march to october the weather can be very pleasant or really hot,but in the moroccan winter, as Chefchaouen is 2000 ft up in the mountains,it can be wet, cold and rather miserable and this b+b has one fault- no heating in the rooms.This is because the normal Moroccan house is designed to stay cool in the hot summers, which means that it can be a bit chilly in the winters. As much as I am fond of Terry,Suzanne and Liam for the way they looked after me,when the sun was out it is a fabulous place to stay, but if they want to attract guests in the winter months(when it is still stunningly beautiful and the best time to visit) they really must invest in some heating for the guest rooms.I spent a lot of time under the covers when it rained,which was the only way to keep warm. This is a shame as I would love to stay during february and march, as flights are dirt cheap at these times and make a stay possible for pensioners like me. So from March to October it can't be beaten, from November to February-take a warm coat and thick socks!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- PLEASE READ CAREFULLY! We don't allow children under 12 years. We are situated just a few minutes walk from the camping, and a 15 minute walk from Chaouen Medina. The national park of Talessamtane is only 200m behind our guesthouse. The Dar Scotlandee guest house in Chefchaouen is a surefire winner with travellers who would like to be somewhere a bit different!! This great value Guesthouse makes a wonderful change from a hotel in the Medina, and offers all the same attention to detail along with warm and personal hospitality. We are just a 15 minute walk or 2 minute taxi ride to the ancient Medina of Chefchaouen and ideal for discovering the hidden villages of the majestic Rif Mountains. The guesthouse is a superb base for exploring the area, and linking up with fellow travellers on our shaded terrace. We also arrange day trips to local beauty spots, and guided tours to local villages to see traditional farming techniques. Local honey and olive oil are specialities of the region. A real chance to experience Berber hospitality. Free high speed wi-fi, so bring your devices. Book early to avoid disappointment, it does get busy in summer. We hope to see you soon... Please note- as with all of Morocco, there is a lot of new building work going on all around Chefchaouen. Recently, it has reached our neighbourhood, meaning the gentle sound of moroccans building houses. Although quite interesting to watch the basic building methods, and the lack of any machinery being used, the sound of bricks being cemented together may bother some people. Please consider this when booking as we don't want you to be unhappy in any way while you are here. ... more less
