This is one of the most lovely hotels we have ever been to... and we have traveled alot. Beautifully decorated with attention to every detail. Even more impressive is the impeccable service...attentive, personal, and thoughtful. They made our anniversary special beyond belief. The restaurant is extraordinary. If you are foodies you will love the tasting menu and wine pairing.All in... More

Love the L'Auberge. Drinks on arrival while signing in. Great bedrooms. Lovely breakfast with coddled eggs and beautiful table settings. Like being back in old old Europe for a morning! Kids loved it as did my wife and I.

Spent a lovely, Spring-like long weekend over MLK holiday. The inn is as charming as they come. Service is top rate and the location, in the center of the village but on a quiet side street is perfection. The moment we arrived we were offered a glass of wine. Everyone was cordial and friendly. The top rated restaurant was unfortunatly... More

We recently stayed at this beautiful hotel and couldn't have wished for anything more. The staff were wonderful and extremely helpful, the food in the restaurant great, and the room was everything we had hoped for. This is a beautiful hotel with a delightful little courtyard and I would sincerely recommend it to anyone that would like a luxurious and... More

Overall it is a nice property in Carmel but the lack of fireplaces in this town of romance and fog takes away some of the polish. You need to really understand that this property was an apartment building with just about every room being different. It appears that they have over 6 categories of rooms and if you chose the...

L'Auberge Carmel is a small, luxurious accommodation that affords a touch beyond the expected. The open courtyard which is common to all of the hotel's rooms, and its floral arrangements, paints a charming ambiance reminiscent of Provence The heated bathroom floor was a pleasant surprise, as was the daily washing of my car. Breakfast was excellent, and I still remember... More

Stayed here for two days during the middle of the week for my wife's birthday, booked it because of location in Carmel. We love the town and the locals! The service of the morning breakfast was excellent. On time fresh fruit and eggs to order. The croissants were excellent. We thought Laura at the front desk was amazing, she was... More

I hate to say this, but this property actually makes me think less of the Relais & Chateaux network of properties. I have stayed at some exquisite properties and eaten some exquisite meals, but L'Auberge Carmel was not up there. First off, the restaurant was closed and that was very disappointing. After reading some of the reviews, we weren't thrilled... More

This is a nice and calm relais chateaux, the service is superb as usual, our room was a courtyard queen and was smaal but cozy! The brekfast was absolutely delicious and it is walking distance from the main things of the city and the hotel restaurant is one of the best and more expensive I have ever tried, but it... More

The staff were so lovely and helpful, the courtyard is gorgeous as is the outside of the hotel. The king bed in our room was so comfortable that it made it hard to wake up to go explore this beautiful town. The tubs are so large and perfect for two people to soak in. It only comes with lavender bath... More
