Great relaxed hosts ..... Lucy and her family are great! Everything you need, intimate pool area which was well needed as its 43 degrees here today. Free Budweisers don't go amiss either. Book room 12 if you can....pool views and very private! Love it here!!!

I shall just list a few of my favourite things from the time I spent here......attentive hosts, nice pool area incl water mists to keep you cool, complimentary drinks, big spacious room, use of binoculars, bikes, local area knowledge, discount card for local shop, soft bed, good shower. Highlights are the resident wild hummingbirds dancing around me in the hotel... More

From the moment I booked our vacation until the minute we left we were treated as family. We stayed in Rm 9 a lovely large quiet retreat. The pool and gardens were lush and so relaxing with plenty of lounge chairs and pool rafts. Lucy was a so warm and adorable. All the staff were very helpful with booking restaurants... More

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights in May. We honestly couldn't fault a single thing. All the staff are really friendly and the rooms are lovely. The pool area is spotless and the pool itself was just the right temperature. The kitchen has everything you could ever need and the BBQ's were cleaner than most peoples ovens! We... More

This is such an amazing comfortable and all around awesome experience. I'm from California and a seasoned world traveler....so it isn't easy to "impress" me but coming back to California for the first time in 5 years and having the experience at Hotel California really was the highlight of my trip. My sister and I stayed in the Casita (#14)... More

This beautiful, quant hotel is perfect for a quiet getaway with out kids running around. They even have a complementary limo service... More

This was an amazing get away for my husband and myself. From the moment we arrived we were treated like old families friends. We have driven by the hotel a number of times and never would have thought of staying there, however this is going to be our first choice. Thank you everyone.

We stayed at here for the first 2 nights of a 2-week California holiday and it was definitely a highlight! Super helpful staff and great amenities, beautiful lush property. Barbeque and full shared kitchen, complete with all the seasonings and sauces you could imagine (so you don't need to purchase), but your key gives you their discounts at Ralph's (supermaket)...

My wife and I spent an evening here for our anniversary, and wished we could have stayed longer. We were warmly greeted as soon as we arrived. Even though it was a couple of hours before check-in time, we were given a tour of the property and were able to check in. The Hotel California is like a little oasis... More

We were really looking forward to this part of our US vacation - 3 nights at the Hotel California - in fact we built our entire US trip around the nights they had available. We were absolutely delighted with our stay. The staff are so helpful and friendly, but never in your face. The facilities are wonderful. Our bed was... More
