We stopped off in Carmel for 1 night on our way to San Francisco . A charming tree lined town full of art galleries, quaint little shops and restaurants. The hotel we stayed in was the historic Pine Inn. It is an old style Inn hotel situated in the centre of town in a little courtyard setting admist lovely antique shops and galleries. On arrival we had a very warm welcome from the staff on reception. The hotel was busy and had a lovely atmosphere. Our room was traditional small... but cosy although it didn't benefit from the modern convenince of air conditioning, the receptionist quickly provided us with a fan for our room which was very welcomed. It was a lovely touch to recieve complementary breakfast tokens and we enjoyed l the tasty breakfast in the morning which had a good range of hot breakfast and pastries. We also checked out their restaurnat Il Fornaio where we had an excellent experience for dinner, its a lovely italian restaurant ( I believe part of a chain in California). Service was really good a choice of dishes... I had the penne in a Vodka cream sauce... it was delicious one of the tastiest pasta dishes I've had. Overall we enjoyed the old world charm and personable stay at the Pine Inn.
