My husband and I traveled up to Carmel for a friends birthday. We arrived to the hotel late in the evening and John was there to welcome us, pour us a glass of wine and walk us to our room. The view from our room was simply stunning. The rooms were very well appointed, comfortable bed and a wonderful huge... More

We just stay at Bernardus for a quick weekend getaway and we were so pleased we picked it. We didn't do much research before hand and selected it last minute and it was such a nice suprise. It is in a beautiful setting and the staff is very helpful. The rooms are wonderful and the bathrooms are fabulous. I stay... More

This was an incredible hotel - the best I have ever stayed in! My husband and I stayed there for our 20th anniversary. We absolutely loved the setting! It was like being in Tuscany. We absolutely loved our beautiful room complete with a fireplace, a patio overlooking the vineyard ,two amazing bottles of wine and snacks. The service was unparalleled... More

Everything about the Bernardus Lodge was just perfect from the moment we walked in the door. Rather than standing in line to check in, we were immediately greeted by a concierge, who offered us a complimentary glass of wine and invited us to lounge by the fire while she got our paperwork ready. That level of service set the tone... More

We stayed at Bernardus in October and had a lovely autumn stay in the Carmel Valley. The property is well maintained and the staff very personalized and helpful. We enjoyed the spa treatments very much, but found the restaurant (Marinus) to be a bit too formal and expensive for our vacation style.

This place is one of the most amazing hotels I’ve stayed in. With my work, I’ve stayed in a number of higher end properties and never enjoyed one like here. This was the second trip to the hotel, and it was just as amazing as the first time. Hotel style is much along the “Not So Big House” books, with... More

We just returned from a stay at this hotel. It was so well maintained and the staff was top notch. We stayed in the Santa Lucia room. My only disappointment was it had a gas fireplace and I prefer wood burning. They provide lots of snacks and wine in the room. The bed is very comfy. The spa and pool... More

What a relaxing getaway! From the minute you arrive -- no traditional check-in process here --- you begin to unwind and leave your worries behind. The staff is extremely friendly and makes sure that you have the information you need to enjoy yourself. The complimentary Bernardus wine in the room is a nice touch as you can enjoy the deck...

This place is WAY too expensive for what it offers. We stayed there for a nearby wedding, so were with 5 other couples, and we all agreed that the rooms were small, dark, and fairly noisy. We all paid more than $500/night, whereas this is definitely a $250/night property. We also had a private dinner which again most of us... More
