Review of Hotel Riad Larache , Morocco

Hotel Riad is a grand old 19th century former mansion for the Duchesse de Guise, the mother of the current pretender to the French throne.

The hotel is set in blooming gardens just south of the centre of Larache. It is supposedly the best hotel in town for facilities: there’s a tennis court, restaurant, café, a swimming pool and plenty of child-friendly activities.

The rooms are comfortable but rather shabby in parts and hot water only runs in the mornings and evenings.
