We have stayed here before, but the prices keep increasing. The setting in a vineyard is as beautiful as ever.
The rooms however are not what they could be. Despite an updating, our room in the lodge looked tired. The bathroom was adequate. The brass/iron frame bed was too high and small for real comfort. The room was large and the view over the vineyards remained lovely.
The breakfasts have gone downhill. There was a lot of bread, a small selection of fruit, sweetened yogurt, very sweet granola, hard boiled eggs, and a prepared egg dish. Most of it is not for the health-conscious, or for those those who love bacon or sausages.
The hotel seems to be trying to attract the young romance market. There is a constant slide display in the main common room that shows young couples or singles in various states of dress. It's tiresome, intrusive and tacky, especially in the context of a beautiful natural setting.
We have not found anywhere better to stay in the area in the same price range, so would probably return despite the downsides. The Silver Rose in Calistoga was more comfortable and less costly, but now only takes corporate customers.
