With only six guest rooms, Ramekins feels like home! Well-appointed rooms that don't skimp on size. The most friendly folks ever are there to make your stay enjoyable. If you like a laid-back, non-crowded, luxurious stay in Sonoma...this is it! Note that Ramekin does not offer meal services, except for a continental breakfast.

We booked a room (1 of 6 that are there) on the ap "hotel tonight" as well as booking a cooking class online for the same evening. The small inn is mostly a culinary school with simply but nicely decorated rooms which have balconies and surround a courtyard. They have a simple breakfast outside the rooms which consisted of small... More

We booked a room at Ramekins because we took an evening Cooking Class there. I was happily surprised. Tho' charming, the room wasn't particularly large, but there was a little balcony to watch over the grounds. There were no outdoor evening events during our stay, but had there been I'm pretty sure the noise would be a big deterrent to... More

My husband and I loved our night at Ramekins and found it convenient to town restaurants and shops. We were vacationing in the area and visiting wine country so we enjoyed this lovely inn. The staff is friendly and helpful. The beds are VERY comfortable and the room was clean and very nicely decorated with a French feel. I really... More

Ramekins Culinary School & Inn is more school than inn. It offers catering, cooking classes, lectures, even musical evenings. A staff of mostly friendly folks spend their days organizing classes and peddling the small but attractive facility as a great spot for weddings and special events. Maybe so. What Ramekins is not great at is being a B&B, where presumably... More

So we paid $120 for cooking lessons (we got a discount from Groupon). Well what I thought was cooking lessons. In fact, groups of 2 are made and you have to choose from appetizer (shrimp wrapped in procietto), dessert (pot de creme) , soup (pear & squash), vegetable (carrots), main (pork loin), side (potatoes) and other (shortbread for soup). So... More

Just a few blocks from town--an easy stroll. Each morning they served an excellent breakfast. We did not dine at the inn otherwise. Staff was very courteous and helpful, and offered complimentary water, juice and sodas at anytime. The room was spacious and both room and bath were modest and very clean. The mattress was very comfortable--like being at home.... More

My husband and I attended the premiere adult culinary and wine camp at Ramekins. All I can say is sign up quickly for the October class. Bill, Lisa, Doug, Seth, Roger and the rest of the Ramekins family made us feel more welcome and at home than I have ever felt in a hotel. The guest chefs Mary, Pierre, Diane,... More

We attended a cooking class purchased from a groupon. There were 12 people in the class and it was a "hands-on" class which meant we all took part in preparing at least part of the meal. All ingredients were measured and prepared for us, so we just had to follow the recipes (with instructions from the chef) and turned out... More

Stayed here for the first time in October 2009 and enjoyed it so much that booked another stay in December. The rooms are spacious and a great value compared to other places that we have stayed in Sonoma. The location is far enough from the square to enjoy the quiet surroundings but close enough to walk to shops and restaurants.... More
