Had a laborious business trip to the area. Decided to change lodging. Staying at Bernardus Lodge changed the tone of my trip.
Rooms were clean, staff was friendly and helpful
Lucia Restaurant offered one terrific meal after another.
Thanks to management and staff.

We stayed here for 4 nights as my husband had meetings here. We had a wonderful time. It is very relaxing and service is first class. You are greeted with a glass of wine. The valets are extremely efficient and helpful, as is the front desk. Whatever we needed was taken care of. We did not have an opportunity to use the spa but will on our next trip. We look forward to going back!

The staff at the valet offered excellent service! The room was very clean and very comfortable. We enjoyed live music at the outdoor cafe. The food and atmosphere at Lucia restaurant and was great. We really enjoyed our stay at Bernardus and would highly recommend this fantastic hotel. We will absolutely be back!

Room Tip: Rooms that overlook the vineyard are wonderful with beautiful landscaping and a peaceful outdoor seating area.

Dear Jana B,

Thank you for visiting Lucia Restaurant & Bar and for posting such a kind review. Chef Cal Stamenov is fortunate to have extensive organic herb and vegetable gardens, vineyards and fruit trees on our 28-acre estate. Even our bartenders pull inspiration from the garden to supplement their craft cocktail menu. We are delighted to read that you enjoyed this true garden-to-table experience.

We look forward to welcoming you back very soon.

Best Regards,
