Why stay in a Riad?

Riad in Arabic means garden, these traditional homes open inward to a garden courtyard lending themselves to sensitive conversion to intimate and individual boutique hotels. The architecture is amazing and you could not be better located for the sights.

What makes staying in our four Riads even more special, and fantastic value for money, is the small team of dedicated staff who will be on hand to help, reassure and advise throughout your stay. These perfect little hideaways each have seven or fewer guest rooms so we can provide a truly personal service.

It is the small things that count: complimentary toiletries; breakfast served at the time of your choice; delicious evening meals individually prepared to your taste and dietary requirements; WiFi; a complimentary map of the old town; help booking restaurants and excursions; nothing is too much trouble. We are pleased to offer the loan of a local pay-as-you-go mobile to stay in touch with your English speaking hosts while you are out exploring.
