We had a great stay. The heated deck, outdoor shower, fruit trees outside the door. So many details were perfect. The reason for 4 stars : there were stains on the curtains, above the headboard, and a wall lamp was dangling(it lit, but the fixture itself was broken). For this kind of money, the attention to detail is so important!!

During our first visit to the hotel in 2009, we absolutely loved everything. From check-in to check out- it was elegant, beautiful and fun. We had really looked forward to our return for our tenth anniversary. Apparently the resort has been sold earlier this year and things are not the same to say the least. We checked in early in...

How can a four star reviewer be disappointed you say? My wife and I spent a weekend at the Carneros Inn as a belated anniversary trip. We had stayed here before and really enjoyed ourselves. The grounds are beautiful. The staff is incredibly helpful. The food at their restaurants is delicious. The Inn is ideally located if you are looking... More

This was our second time at the Carneros Inn (200/8 and again in Sept 2014). Its just as good as it was the first time. Welcome bottle of white wine, on ice. Your own individual bungalow to stay in, with a private (high-fenced) privacy wall. A shower that leads into an outdoor shower on your patio (~$400/night but so worth... More

This was my first trip to wine country and came on a girl's trip. This hotel exceeds all expectations! The accommodations were equally luxurious as immaculate. The food was sublime and views unparalleled. This is one not to miss....I don't know how I will live without the donuts at Boon-Fly!

It is hard to describe just how beautiful it is at The Carneros Inn. From the indoor/outdoor showers, the heated bathroom tiles, the service everywhere on site, the private outdoor space, the amazing food at Farm, the bath soaks at the spa overlooking the vineyards, and the tasty breakfast at Boon Fly, it is simply luxurious! Highly recommended if you... More

We came here on a very busy harvest weekend. The place was very expensive for what we needed, however we were able to have a great one night (that's all we could afford)!. I would say that the family suite is nice, with a great back patio for some fun at night. The fireplaces were great add to the rooms.... More

What a nightmare! We checked into the Orchard at Carneros Inn expecting a week of autumn relaxation in beautiful Napa Valley. Aesthetically, Carneros Inn was lovely. We unpacked late afternoon and settled onto the deck of our unit. While our husbands headed out to buy some groceries, my friend and I relaxed by a freshly lit fire. Not long into... More

What a wonderful place to get away from it all. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. While the property is fairly large, it was well laid out and easy to get around. For those not physically fit or not wanting to overheat, you can call for a golf cart, and they come remarkably fast. My room was a well appointed free... More

Nice play to stay with your significant other. The restaurant is great, but make sure to make a reservation. I don't understand why but as a guest you don;t have any advantage to eat in their restaurant. That's the bad part.
