If you are expecting The Ritz you are in for a disappointment. If you are looking for a small friendly genuine Moroccan hotel in a pleasant town then this is the one for you. If you are a Paraglider then there cannot be any better in this part of Morocco.
Damian and his staff are all very friendly and helpful. Their english is good (certainly better than my french!) and they work hard to make your stay pleasant.
The breakfast is basic but totally sufficient where as the evening meals are superb. Mostly, but not exclusively, local cuisine, the spider crab and sea bass are a must. Even the basic salad is very pleasant and everything was safe to eat with no upset stomach in two weeks stay. There is a bar at the hotel and the Moroccan wine is very pleasant.
Not all rooms are en-suite with three rooms sharing two showers and two toilets, which didn't present any issues. The showers can run cold at times but this is all part of the experience. The hotel is kept very clean and the chambermaid cleans the rooms daily. The rooms are basic but comfortable. However if you are a very light sleeper you may want to bring earplugs as the hotel is in earshot of the local mosque and the early morning call to prayer can be heard most days.
The hotel has Wi-fi for which there is no extra charge although do not expect UK broadband speeds, especially if uploading photographs.
Mirleft is a pleasant little town with a few shops where you can walk up the street without being unduly hassled, which cannot be said of all Moroccan towns and cities. Damian has a number of local contacts and can arrange other activities such as Quad Biking if required.
