We pulled up in the driveway to be greeted warmly, after obtaining a tag for the car we were advised to proceed to reception up the stairs, upon entering the building we were greeted and welcomed again warmly and offered a glass of "champagne" to drink while sitting, once ready, the staff showed us to our room and finished the check in process.
A tour of the property was offered and was very helpful in settling in.
The room was excellent, great fit out, very clean, good sized bathroom with a large separate bath. the extras were a very nice touch as other people have listed.
The pool area was nice. great steam room and sauna.
Lunch and breakfast in the courtyard area was delightful.
The stand out if I can even say that was the restaurant, the service from the moment you walked in to the quality of the food was outstanding.
The previous night we had dinner at the "French Laundry" in the Napa Valley, I know which restaurant deserves the "3 Michelin stars".
I can honestly say that this resort met and exceeded every thing we had hoped for.
In all our travels rarely have I found a property that has delivered in all aspects.
This property achieved a rare thing; great staff, clean and beautiful rooms and an in house restaurant that was beautiful to be in and delivered on every part of a dinner experience.
Thanks for being there, when we are next in the States you will be on our must do list.
