Guests’ comments from our guestbook… January 2016 I don’t usually review somewhere I have stayed until I have left but I just can’t hold back anymore. This place is a little paradise. Great service, spotless rooms and fantastic food. We travelled to the mountains yesterday so they made dinner for my husband & I and it was divine. Nothing is too much trouble and the Manager Rachid just could not do enough for us. Everyone that works there has been welcoming and just lovely – I cannot recommend this place highly enough. Don’t go to some purpose built hotel in the new town, you’ll miss what’s best about being in Marrakech. Thank you for a wonderful stay which I am glad to say isn’t quite over yet….. Stayed December 2015, January 2016 The Riad Elizabeth is located within 5 minutes of the Souks of Marakech. We were made very welcome by the staff who were attentive and helpful. Great breakfast to se us through the day. Rooms tastefully decorated and comfortable. Will definitely stay there again. Loved Marrakech Stayed November 2015, January 2016 Just arrived back to the UK from Marrakech after 3 nights of staying in this beautiful Riad. We went as 2 couples who have never been to Marrakech before so were quite anxious with what to expect. But leading up to our trip I often emailed John (the owner) with questions and he was more than helpful in offering advice and recommendations. We arrived in Marrakech in broad daylight so driving through the medina on our way to the Riad was a real eye opener. Our driver (arranged by John) then walked us to the Riad and as soon as the door opened we were all speechless as to what the Riad was like. We couldn’t believe that something like this was inside the walls of the alleyways we just walked through. It’s stunning! We were greeted by Rachid the hotel manager he is just the nicest man! with mint tea and biscuits. He told us all about the hotel and the area. Our rooms were beautiful and we spent our first day sunbathing on the roof top. We helped ourselves to cold drinks and then wrote them down on our honesty bar tab which we paid for at the end. At night Rachid arranged a driver to pick us up and take us to places we wanted to go for food and drinks. And even a spa. Especially our last night he arranged a little surprise where our driver took us to this amazing bar/club/restaurant place. We had lunch one day in the Riad which was lovely Turkey kebab sticks with morrocan salad and crisps. The breakfast was included which was lovely. Fruit,Yoghurt,Breads. Unlimited teas and coffees. At first when you step outside the door you instantly feel a bit lost but once you know you’re way around (it don’t take long) it’s just an amazing adventure! If you’re thinking of booking Riad Elizabeth then you won’t regret it. Thankyou to ALL of the superb staff who looked after us during our stay will definitely return :) xxx Stayed November 2015 January 2016 Reviewed 11 September 2015 We felt really welcome at this Riad. Really liked the décor, the staff, the food, we had breakfast and two evening meals, really nice food. John was super. Nothing was to much trouble for any of the staff.
