We stopped of at this hotel for 1 night on our way from the desert to the coast. The Riad itself is as pretty as a picture, the food is great, and the view from the terras is fantastic. we were sorry to leave again.

This was a shot out of the dark, but on arrival could have done with a tea but you cannot have everything. Food was really good and the place relaxed you straightaway. You need to be ware of the N9 road at the bottom of the hill so you can get a bit of road noise though this did not spoil it. The showers were not brilliant but enough to wash the dust off before having a beer. The owners were not in when we stayed. Very little English spoken all French. Good place to stay on route for a few break on the way to the desert.

This charming little guest house was one of our favorites on our trip through Morocco, beating out many a "fancier" establishment with its simple decor and lovely views. Simple, tasteful rooms - Berber with Western comforts like extra fluffy towels and a roaring fire by the dinner table- were a relief after we got back from two days in the Sahara. And the views from the lovely, but simply-appointed terrace are simply stunning. Run by a Moroccan man (a geologist who is happy to talk rock formations in the Anti Atlas) and his French wife, the clientele seemed to be mostly French, so perhaps it has yet to be discovered by the English-speaking, Lonely Planet crowd and is a little off-the-beaten-path. Don't expect a luxurious, five-star establishment, but DO expect simple, perfect loveliness.

Inshallah I Rocha is a pleasing mix of Berber hospitality and French comforts. The decore is a melange of Taos and Kasbah. Tired of tagines and couscous then stop here. The food is an imaginative blend of Moroccan and French. The rooms are indigenous materials but adapted to modern needs. Towel bars/hooks, hot water and inshallaha a soap dish/shelf in the shower.

Absolutely fantastic. We had a very warm welcome at this lovely hotel in the middle of our recent trip to Morocco and it turned out to be the best place we stayed. The food was wonderful, the setting was very peaceful and the owner was very friendly. Highly recommended.

We stayed at the Auberge Irocha as part of our Morocco (South) trip. The Auberge Irocha is located on a beautiful spot with very nice views. The dinner was delicious (no couscous ;-) and the rooms very clean.

We also did hike up to the Kasbah (ruin) on top of a hill next to the Auberge. That was a great idea after having been seated in a car for several hours...

I would recommed to stay at this place before heading back to busy Marrakech.

Irocha was the perfect ending to our trip, having spent 2 weeks travelling Morocco. The surrounding scenery which can be viewed from the terrace was very impressive. Service was very good, Ahmed (the owner) was very welcoming and friendly, showing us around a choice of rooms upon our arrival. Food was very enjoyable, dinner was included but we also paid extra for lunch (Tisselday is a very small village with no restaurants).

Rooms were of varying sizes, the one we stayed in wasn't huge but we chose it for the great views from the windows. Remote controlled air conditioning was available in our room, although we did not need it as it was not too hot.

We spent a much needed day sunbathing beside the very cold pool which was located at the back of the property in a fenced off area. This would be the only bad thing I could say about our stay as it was too cold to enjoy (only lasted 2 lengths and its a short pool!). We also used the hamman which was good.

Overall, a very enjoyable and relaxing stay, I would happily return here for a 2nd visit.
