Everything about this hotel was perfect. Our room was beautiful and luxurious . The hotel staff were charming and attentive and little touches like the homemade biscuits at night made it feel extra special. We were celebrating a wedding anniversary and ate in the superb restaurant one night. Expensive but worth it. The staff even brought us a celebratory chocolate... More

Return visit was still very enjoyable. Tasting menu with wine pairing option and the cooking is still refined and tasty. They do accommodate special preferences for meat, seafood etc. and will modify the courses to please. Service is excellent although a tad fast between courses. Overall a wonderful place for a refine dinner in Carmel.

I will keep it short, but while there are many places to stay in Carmel, i was pleasantly delighted by our weekend at the L'Auberge Hotel. The hotel is small and intimate and luxurious. What is key here is the level of hospitality we received from literally every staff member. They obviously come from a place of Yes rather than... More

We were here on our five year anniversary trip and it could not have been more perfect. The room was large and comfortable, with amenities and extras. Breakfast was delicious, and the chef's tasting menu at the restaurant was incredible. A lovely walk down to the beach, and picturesque shopping all around put the hotel in the perfect location. But... More

Simply amazing. From the moment we arrived we felt so welcome. Nothing was too much trouble. Our room was spacious, comfortable and luxurious. It had everything we needed, every detail was considered, even down to the flashlight for the unlit streets of Carmel! The restaurant was fine dining at the top of its game. Breakfast was relaxing, lovely continental breakfast,... More

This charming Relais & Chateaux inn is a few blocks from the beach and walking distance from the major Carmel shops/restaurant row; its location is ideal. The staff was very welcoming, was greeted by all, service was excellent, as well as the delicious breakfast. We had a large, comfortable room over the courtyard. It was a warm Saturday, we had...

We "happened upon" this gem. Stopped in Carmel on a road trip, there are so many places to stay it was overwhelming. Looking for a nice place to be pampered we stopped in a home decor store who suggested L'Auberge. We loved it so much we stayed an extra night. The staff were very helpful from our arrival to our...

My wife and I stayed here for our wedding anniversary. From the moment we arrived,we were treated as if we were the only ones that mattered. The staff went out of their way to make us feel pampered. The room was perfect with the large soaking tub and luxurious bed. Thank you for making our anniversary so perfect!
