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

Stayed at a few Relais & Chateaux properties and this is by far the most disappointing. I should have trusted some of the other reviews because they were right: this place is NOT worth the money. First of all, walked into the empty lobby and waited a good 10 MINUTES before anyone came to greet me / check me in.... More

I cant say enough about the fabulous L'Auberge Carmel. We loved it so much! It is a small boutique hotel in the heart of Carmel about 4 blocks uphill from the beach. We walked down in the mornings and it was great! As soon as you pull up to the hotel a member of the staff will be out waiting... More

We stayed here for 1 night travelling North through California. Before we had even got into the lobby, our cases had been whipped to the room and our car had been taken away - valet parking. In the room we were greeted by a handwritten card from the manager welcoming us, this was followed by another handwritten card advising us... More

My husband and I just came back from two nights at L'Auberge Carmel. We absolutely loved everything about the hotel. The hotel manager, George, and all the staff were so personable and helpful and their attention to every detail was really impressive. We received a great bottle of rose champagne for our anniversary along with a note signed by all... More

We came to Carmel to enjoy a weekend away from the kids. Success. The hotel was better than anticipated with a staff that took care of every need. Take advantage of the knowledge staff and driver. We will be back. Maybe even bring the kids. Maybe.

Having just getting married we arrived at Auberge for 3 days of bliss. The staff in unbelievably warm, attentive, and extremely gracious. Auberge Carmel at times feels like it is an imaginary place away from the worries of the world. Also, had the opportunity to dine at the restaurant. The food is very exciting and representative of the coastal cuisine... More
