I have to note several things that I loved or liked about the Hope-Merrill house (I didn't even walk into the Hope-Bosworth house and it could be a completely different experience...):
-An amazing breakfast with such delicious options like a cherry tart, chili eggs, homemade scones, local honey-butter, on and on...
-Great location- I had never been to Geyserville before and I LOVE it now! And the b and b is within walking distance to several chic, tasty wine country restaurants.
-We had a last minute special that basically got us half-price on our room (the Sterling Suite), which we really appreciated.
That being said, I would never stay there again (unless I learned that the Hope-Bosworth is different in several respects). The Sterling Suite normally costs $280. I know that there are many expensive hotel rooms in Napa/Sonoma, but this is quite expensive for a bed and breakfast in the area that its in, and there is no jacuzzi (or even a bath!), no wine hour at night, no stereo system/dvd/videos, etc, there was a general lack of privacy, and honestly, I didn't want to walk barefoot or sit on the chairs. It just felt dingy and dirty. I don't like writing reviews like this, especially about a bed and breakfast because it just feels like a personal insult, but honestly, this bed and breakfast needs to pick it up a few notches if they want to charge anything over $100 for these rooms. Well, given the exceptional breakfast, I guess I'll make that anything above $125. I'm sure some people have loved it, but we have been to so many other, better options in wine country that cost less or are at least similarly priced.
