“Absolutely Unforgettable”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

When a person visits a resort as high-end as the Bardessono and feels like family rather than like a "guest", it is an unforgettable feeling and experience. This is a class act, from top to bottom, as it relates to the staff, their direction, and the treatment of everyone around them. It is obvious that everyone loves the property, their jobs, and connecting with people as they share their experiences. The Bardessono is beautiful, but in a very natural and simple way. Nature abounds, and the LEED certified status gives a freshness and purity to the air and surroundings which is amazing.
I shared this visit with my daughter for a quick but very special occasion. We were greeted with a luscious glass of wine, lots of smiles, and wonderful suggestions for places to expand our wine country experience. The food is incredible, the libations fabulous, and the fun & friendly conversations just wonderful. We will return, unquestionably, and hopefully next time for a much longer visit!

Room Tip: I can't imagine there is a bad room anywhere! The layout of the property is very private and ba...

Dear Julie S,

We're so glad you and your daughter enjoyed your getaway to our hotel, and we really appreciate your selecting us for your brief vacation time together.

You said some really wonderful things in your review about our staff and the family-like environment here. As an employee population, we are a family. We treat each other as well as we treat our guests, and we try to make this a joyous place in which to work. I'm a strong believer in the age-old notion that happy employees make for happy guests.

We're not perfect and from-time-to-time we have our internal disagreements, but to a person, we are fiercely proud of Bardessono and protective of the wonderful employee and guest experiences here.

Thank you for recognizing our people here so positively. And do come back. Santa Cruz is just 2 1/2 hours away.

Warmest regards from all of us at Bardessono.

Jim.

Bardessono is everything as advertised - large, peaceful, luxurious suites in the middle of Yountville. The staff was attentive and friendly. The rooms are gorgeous and the double-person jacuzzi tub was especially nice. We loved borrowing bikes and taking them to the nearby wineries. It's a great romantic getaway.

This place is a little slice of heaven! My spouse and I stayed here while visiting in the Napa Valley and what a treat it was.

Everyone at the entire hotel was amazing. The service was outstanding, absolutely everyone there was such a pleasure to talk to. There isn't a single thing that I can complain about.

Our room was beautiful, beyond exceptional and not a thing missing. Thank you for making our stay in the Napa Valley so perfect.

We came to Bardessono last year for a mini honeymoon and returned this year for our wedding anniversary. We love the peaceful surroundings and sustainable environment. We also brought our pups, so we appreciate a hotel as beautiful as Bardessono would allow us to bring our pets,who were spoiled and pampered as much as we were! We love the doggie beds and bowls that were provided for them during our stay. Thanks again!

I'll preface this by stating we've been fortunate enough to have stayed at some of the best boutique hotels in the world...and Bardessono surpasses almost every one of them. Let's start with the service...from the GM, to the hostess at Lucy who helped us with coffee, to the guy who drove the hotel-provided Lexus truck to deposit us at the fantastic Michelin-star-associated restaurant (Redd Wood...also highly, highly recommended) they were able to book for us even though we'd failed to provide them any kind of notice: kind, accommodating, meticulous and comfortable in that "welcome home, long lost friend" kind of way. We were visiting for our 11th anniversary and absolutely everyone remembered to congratulate us. We stayed in a King Spa Suite, and would highly recommend. The quality of the fit out is superb: high-quality bed linens, firm but comfortable bed, spectacular outdoor bathtub, steam shower (that wasn't really steamy, though the shower pressure was great), and romantic in-room fireplace. We didn't eat at the restaurant, though it was lauded by Chris and his guys at Robert Sinskey (hands down our favorite vineyard). There are several very well rated hotels in Napa, but we hate being isolated and outside of walking distance like most of them are. At Bardessono, you can walk to all the wonderful places in Yountville, from Bouchon Bakery across the street, to Ad Hoc a few doors away, to tasting rooms and shops. In all, absolutely perfect. Thanks, Bardessono. Can't wait to return.

Room Tip: All are fantastic, but cheek with the hotel if it's Magnolia season...they encouraged us to visi...

Dear mmbuhrig,

What a nice review. Thank you so much. We're delighted you chose us to celebrate your anniversary and enjoyed your stay. Your kind words about your room, our staff, and our location are deeply appreciated.

Our magnolia trees in the Magnolia Grove are in full bloom and spectacularly beautiful, as are our olive, cypress, and birch trees, but without blossoms. Your picture captures them beautifully.

We look forward to your return. It will be nice to greet and thank you in person.

All the best from all of us at Bardessono.

The Bardessono was truly an amazing place with excellent service! My wife and I celebrated our anniversary here, and they made us feel very special from the second we arrived. We received a personal greeting with wine and later a bottle of champagne was sent to our room as a gift. The only bummer was that it rained the entire time so we could not take advantage of everything that the Bardessono had to offer outside, but it was still incredible. Our room had so many neat features that I didn't mind staying inside. On a side note about the service, I was enjoying a cup a coffee in the bar area and saw a man walking outside in the pouring rain without an umbrella. Out of nowhere, a staff member rushed outside from the lobby to hand him an umbrella to make sure he stayed dry. I could tell that the guest was a little take back and surprised by the quick gesture, but he seemed to really appreciate it. They really do take care of you during your stay and make sure even the smallest things are covered.

My wife and I are already planning on coming back because it is such a neat place and right in the heart of everything in Yountville. It was worth every penny!

Dear Gcmax,

We really appreciate your staying with us and this nice review. Whenever it rains here, which has been rarely this year, our hearts go out to our guests (as do our umbrellas.) Napa Valley, Yountville, and Bardessono are special places; and while wonderful in any weather, they are magical in the sunshine.

Thank you for your kinds words about our rooms, our staff, and the service we deliver here.

Please come back soon.

Warm regards from now sunny Napa Valley.

We had an amazing stay here at the end of January. Antonello showed us around the hotel and then to our room (in the Magnolia section). The room was wonderful!! The attention to detail and how attentive the staff was was also very nice. I will say that if you are on the lower level, the people above you can be a little disturbing if they like to walk around a lot (wood/stone floors). The people above us must have had a small child playing with toys early our first morning.

I want to say that Antonello was SO nice! He'd greet us by name every time he saw us. He seemed genuinely happy to see us and talk to us when we saw him. One night we ate at Bistro Jeanty, and he recommended the Tomato Soup - it was so good!!

They don't have a free breakfast like many other Napa hotels, but they do offer muffins, coffee and tea in the bar to tide you over until you get breakfast.

We did have a drink in the hotel bar twice - loved the guys in there (good lemon drop martini). They do have a few TV's - we watched the superbowl there. We also ate in their restaurant - Lucy - once. The antelope and gnocchi were wonderful!!!

We hope to come to Napa off season again and stay here (it can be real pricy in high season).

Room Tip: A second floor room, or one that doesn't have a room above it would be quieter.

Dear SherriLR,

Thank you for staying with us and posting this great review. We're delighted you enjoyed your stay and your dinner in Lucy.

I'm sorry, though, that your upstairs neighbors were a little loud. We'll put up in an upstairs room next time. Fortunately, among our repeat guests, preferences are about evenly split between upstairs and downstairs rooms. The beauty of the downstairs rooms are the outdoor showers, as well as indoor steam showers, which the upstairs rooms don't have.

We hope you'll be back...soon and often.

Warmest regards from your friends at Bardessono.

Jim.
