Have stayed here 3 or 4 times over the years. It is clean and comfortable, with quirky rooms, slightly over-furnished and with old fashioned (but perfectly functional) bathrooms. The breakfast is light but very pleasant, served in the gardens, and the pool is big, clean and adequate. The location is excellent, and overall a pleasant place for a couple of... More

My parents and I stayed in the two rooms upstairs in the main house and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The women who prepared breakfast and looked after our needs, which were a fair number, were eager to please and very helpful. The rooms were spotless and the place overall was very charming, though the pool is in bad need of... More

The main house is charming and authentic, including a slight squeak in the stairs. The public rooms are comfortable and the bedroom was inviting. We walked to dinner on the square. The only down side was that Napa street gets traffic early and the room faces the street.

The Inn is in a great location. The gardens are nice and the breakfast was very good. The staff was excellent. The pool was mostly clean however in serious need of replastering. I noticed other reviewers saying it was dirty, which it appears to be due to its bad condition. The room was cool even without the AC on a... More

I spent two days here over 4th July weekend. The location is great, a few minutes walk to the main square, where you can wander through the many shops, or grab a great bite to eat. As it's name suggests there is a Victorian garden, complete with humming birds! The garden is beautiful, with lots of quite spots as well... More

This is a great location for a B&B, right in the heart of Sonoma but quiet enough to give you some privacy. Enter off the street and find impeccable gardens and quaint buildings. Our room was a little small, but still nice, and there's a hot tub in the back and a great breakfast. People said the staff could be... More

Very nice setting and location. The gardens, according to my master gardening wife, were beautiful. We had a wonderful breakfast outside by the pool and could smell all of the flowers while eating a delicious breakfast. The location is excellent. Two or three blocks from the main plaza so walking enabled us to imbibe in more wine than normal!

We stayed here for a couple of days. It is located a short walk away from the town square where all of the restaurants etc are. Wifi was acceptable and it had decent air con. Really nice gardens (we took out breakfasts outside for example) which might be a plus if you have some time to kill. My main complaint... More

This inn is beautiful and a great value! The property and gardens are very well maintained with lovely amenities including a pool and hot tub. Our room was comfortable with many nice touches - fluffy towels and pillows and chocolates, too. Breakfast preparation sent delicious aromas throughout the inn and we enjoyed coffee on the porch. I highly recommend this... More

This place is exactly what is says, set up like a Victorian house with loads of "period" pieces even down to the decanter of sherry for the guests to help themselves to! Donna, the owner goes out of her way to welcome you and the staff are excellent, Janet gave us a number of tickets and cards for free wine... More
