Having been lured in by the lovely website, we thought we'd stumbled across a gem on the outskirts of Marrakesh. It didn't help that the day we arrived at the Auberge de Tam the weather took a turn for the worse (and then stayed that way) so things were looking distinctly grey-er than the jewel-like colours that had been envisaged. We arrived at the Reception to be given a perfunctory grunt by the owner, who promptly left the building. We were then led to our room (a Chambre berbere - ours' was pretty bleak, with minimal comforts), the door was firmly closed and we seemed to have just a list of Rules for company. Brilliant. Rules are always lovely on holiday.
Having organised half-board for the few days we were there, we seemed to have no choice about when this could be taken up, despite being told on the phone at booking that we could choose whether this would be lunch or supper. I'm not quite sure what we had managed to do in the short time we were there to warrant being ignored when trying to order drinks - or have our food rather unceremoniously dumped on the table. This continued throughout our stay, with a real high-point being a small basket of stale bread for breakfast on the final day. Time to go? Yes please.
