This was our Valentine getaway. We arrived on Sunday afternoon and were very impressed. The room was clean, cozy, and well appointed. BATHROBES! The hotel grounds were well kept and even though it was February and not in the peak growing season, it was still neat and pretty. We had a room with an outdoor soaking tub on the private back patio. AWESOME! The bed was comfortable and the towels and sheets were soft. I was impressed with the tile work in the bathroom and the intricate door hardware on the patio. CLASSY! Wine glasses, cork screw, and refrigerator in the room made our romantic getaway seamless. We would definitely stay there again.

This is a wonderful hotel, well looked after and beautifully furnished. The breakfast was served in a well appointed dining room. Everything was home made and delicious.I look forward to my next scheduled stay. The adjacent Blue Wing Saloon has character, the food was above average. The monday night piano player was an excellant addition with geat talant.

I love the Tallman. I've stayed a number of places in this region, and the Tallman is my favorite for a B&B with charm and a historic feel. The renovation that went into this property is like nothing I've ever seen. Practical: delicious, healthy (if you want it) breakfast is included. The adjacent Blue Wing Saloon has food quality I didn't expect to find in Lake County--definitely on par with the "wine country with altitude, not attitude" feel of the area.

Room Tip: Rooms on the higher floors feel more private.

We spent one night here because it is close to my mother-in-law. The hotel is old and historic but all the facilities are modernized. Be sure to take time to look at the photo album in the lobby that details the complete remodeling project. We stayed in an upper garden room. The room was spacious and nicely decorated...comfy king size bed, veranda, well-appointed bathroom including bathrobes and pool towels. The heating system kept the room very comfortable and it was also quiet. The staff was friendly and helpful. We had a very nice dinner across the garden area at the Blue Wing Cafe and Saloon. The food was excellent and there was even live entertainment that included Christmas songs. Breakfast the next morning was scrumptious; we were asked to make our selections for breakfast the day before and could choose room delivery or eating in the dining room. We opted for the dining room because it was so attractive. The scones were so light and flaky; they were just wonderful!

This is a delightful hotel, well looked after and beautifully furnished. The breakfast was served in a well appointed dining room. Everything was home made and delicious. We had so looked forward to sampling their restaurant the evening of our stay, but the service was dreadful the meal delivered while we were still eating our starters on cold plates - the potatoes were old, stale and cold - the experience in the dining room marred what was otherwise a very special place.

Our first trip up to Lake County from the Bay Area was most pleasant and inviting. It was made all the more wonderful with an overnight stay at the Tallman Hotel. We chose the Veranda Room #3, which is on the front of the main building, with windows to the quiet street on one side and the courtyard between the hotel and the Blue Wing Saloon on the other. The room is spacious, nicely decorated, light, and simply lovely. The tiled bathroom is large, and features a raised tub and separate shower.

A delicious breakfast was served until 10 a.m. in the front dining room, which is adorned with period style and furnishings. Chef Carli is absolutely wonderful, and greeted us to ensure that breakfast experience exceeded expectations.

We enjoyed Saturday dinner at the Blue Wing Saloon, right next door. This is a must-dine stop along the way. Bernie and crew have renovated the historic saloon to its original glory. We sipped on cocktails in the courtyard late afternoon, and then were seated inside for dinner. One of us had the lamb, and the other had the halibut. Both dishes were delicious, as was the charcuterie and cheese plate served prior to the entrées. The wine list features many of the best of Lake County wineries. We chose the Moore Family Cab Sav, and started with sparkling wine.

The Tallman Hotel is an ideal getaway if you appreciate professional, friendly service by the staff, lovely accommodations, and an excellent restaurant (should have a star) right next door. We will return soon for weekend stay.

Upperlake is a nice little western town and the Tallman hotel is a very good choice to stay. The rooms are perfect, because you have little private patio where you have sun in the morning and it even had an outside shower. In the evenings you can sit on the porch in front of your room and enjoy the aun there. Right next to the hotel is the Blue Wing restaurant, which is a good choice for lunch or dinner. You can sit outside in the shade of the trees and enjoy their food and microbrews.
