As lovers of luxury boutique hotels, we know what they typically do well and what not to expect as well. The reception area is charming and leads through to a lovely outdoor courtyard which we would judge very highly, and the novelty of sitting there on a cool evening by a huge open fireplace eating gourmet s'mores is wonderful. Our deluxe room was a good size with a fantastic bed and had everything we needed. The bathroom was also good, though swing doors don't afford absolute privacy!
There are a few reasons we wouldn't give this 5 stars. Our room had a balcony, but it was charmless and overlooked a rather drab view with bins and there was quite a bit of road noise early morning. The self service breakfast was certainly good enough, but nothing to write home about. We found the reception staff to be competent and polite, but not especially warm. Same goes for the lady at breakfast. Overall you didn't get the impression that people there particularly wanted to engage with you. Sure, there are times when it's nice to be left to your own devices, so perhaps we are being over fussy, but for the money we expected rather more wonderful memories than we have.
We'd be perfectly happy to go back, and it may well be the best that Paso Robles has to offer, but we're not in a rush.More
