We stayed here as our base for four days of wine tasting in the Napa Valley region. The location was perfect for this. Right on Rt. 29 and between Napa and Calistoga.
We loved the gardens which are beautifully maintained. The hotel is actually a number of buildings with gardens throughout. It looks like a small neighborhood. The walk to breakfast in the morning was very pleasant but we had beautiful weather the whole time. We liked the staff. All seemed friendly without being intrusive. I felt they would try to accommodate us if we asked for something. The room we stayed in was on the second floor with an outdoor walk up. The room was beautiful and very clean. Very large bathroom with a large soaking tub and large shower. They provide a refrigerator and safe for storing valuables. We had no complaints about the bed, it was comfortable. The pool was lovely. There are two pools, we only went to the one closest to our room. The exercise area was adequate with two treadmills, an elliptical and a stationary bike. There is no area outside to jog or walk and the exercise room was busy most mornings. We thought the breakfast was good. There was lots of fruit, a very good quiche (when they did not serve the powder eggs), sausage and breads to include croissants.
The price was high. We paid about $400 per night.
The one complaint we had was that we were not told we would be carrying two large suitcases up a flight of stairs to get to our room. We drove to our room from the reception area and no one offered or was available to help with it. We must have looked very fit and healthy so they didn't bother to offer. We would stay here again, but try to get a better deal. Overall it was a lovely experience for us.
