“Comfortable but on main road..and eclectic breakfasts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

We were met by Pam on arrival (who is not the owner) & who was just great, pleasant and helpful and who went out of her way to check we had everything we needed. The owners however didn't introduce themselves to us when they were present the next day and while pleasant we didn't get to know them. Initially we were disappointed as the B&B is right on the busy main road and we were hoping for something more secluded. However it wasn't noisy inside the house. Our room, The Rose suite, was a good size, comfortable with a fire and lounge area and outside patio. The very ornate decor won't be to everyone's taste and the bathroom was tired looking. The cheese and wine in the afternoon was a very nice touch and welcome. The breakfasts are very strange and we would have much preferred some good bacon and egg and croissants etc to the eclectic range of food such as bread pudding(!!) and poached pears. reminiscent of something your eccentric aunt would serve at Christmas. Overall nice, comfortable property which was a short walk from Calistoga (which we actually preferred to St Helena) but would have much preferred a more hearty choice at breakfast than the unusual offerings.

I'm sorry to say that I was very disappointed with my room and breakfast at the Pink Mansion. After reading all the glowing reviews and looking on the website I was expecting something really special. My husband and I stayed in the Wine Suite, and although the private entrance was nice, the clawfoot bathtub and shower head were stained and the tub wobbled back and forth making it feel very unsteady during showering. The fresh fruit at breakfast was expected, but bread pudding, without any fresh bake goods,or anything else, was just not up to an expensive B&B standards.

The Pink Mansion is a charming, beautifully furnished house full of character. The service was excellent and breakfasts were superb. The host was actually looking after the hotel in the owners' absence, and she did a tremendous job of looking after the guests. In particular she was very helpful in suggesting restaurants and vineyards in the local area - the very reason we were visiting. My only regret is not staying for longer.

Room Tip: I doubt any would disappoint - however, book early to secure your preferred room.

My husband and I stayed here before the Napa marathon. We had the Rose rom, which was perfect for our desire to have space to relax pre-race day. Topper and Leslie went out of their way to be sure that all the runners had everything needed on race morning. I went to the kitchen to turn on coffee at 4:00 am, and found the rows of breakfast requests from runners lined up on the kitchen sideboard. Trust me runners have some strange morning requests, and they were all there.

It is quiet, beautiful, and pleasant. The breakfast is excellent. The property is within easy walking distance of downtown Calistoga, a quaint, charming town.

Finally, I say all this as someone who vehemently avoids B&Bs. This was my first and might be my last because I don't know that any other can live up to this experience. Stay here if it is at all possible!

My husband and I chose this place due to its location and how quaint it looked from the pictures. We were not disappointed, it was quiet and friendly and the owner Topper couldn’t do more for us to make our stay pleasurable. We were on a 2 week road trip up the West Coast so the home cooked breakfasts made by the owner for us each morning was a real treat plus the free wine and cheese nights were perfect for getting us in the mood for Napa Valley wine tasting. I would recommend this place to stay for couples who want a relaxing and romantic setting and in walking distance to the town centre.

The home is beautiful, rooms spacious, very clean, comfortable and with all needed amenities. Fireplace, large bath, vcr/dvd, jacuzzi, jacuzzi tub, pool. wine and cheese in the evening, coffee and tea, home made breakfast served to you. We enjoyed fresh fruit plate (pineapple, berries), bacon, and french toast. It was truly a lovely home with a very friendly, professional host.

This was an excellent choice for our second stay in Calistoga. I stay at a different Bed & Breakfast every time I travel to the valley. The Pink Mansion was very affordable for the area and Toppa and Leslie where very courteous and friendly, especially during our gourmet breakfasts.

Room Tip: The Garden Room where we stayed is a bit small, but for the time you spend in it, it's perfect...
