Other than its setting & gardens which were quite nice and security, this property was entirely disappointing and grossly overpriced.
It was located just off a main highway and quite noisy outside. More of an issue though was the one & a half hours drive into Yosemite valley- a 3h daily round trip, so not ideal as a base to see magnificent Yosemite.
Our bedroom (Geranium) was small and overcowded with some rather dated furniture, including a massive four poster bed. There was a pathway directly outside our window and the place was not sound proof- so not very private or romantic!Our room had a diffuclt to access sunken bath/shower recess. The toilet blocked and while this was attended to promptly it was one of the wait staff who did the job- totally inappropriate!
The breakfasts were terrible with a choice of two cereals, some less than fresh berries and almost undrinkable filter coffee, and no nice breads. There was no choice for the hot breakfast and what was offerred was almost inedible. Our breakfast experience meant that we did not attempt the fixed menu dinner offering. This experince was topped off with a serve of curdled milk.
The cost was considerably more than we paid for a corner room at the Four Seasons in San Francisco and a great room at the Peninsular in Chicago which both lived up to all our expectations.
We have stayed at other Relais & Chateaux but this one does not deserve the imprimatur.
