We spent a relaxing weekend at the Inn and had a wonderful time. The service was impeccable. The Inn staff are extremely friendly and easy-going. The breakfast was a gourmet feast. We did not expect such an extensive dining experience in the morning. The food was top notch and excellently prepared (even the coffee was delicious).
We stayed in the Syrah Room, but we had a chance to peak at the other rooms in the Inn. All of them are true to the pictures on the website, which I think does an excellent job at describing the amenities and charm of each room in the Inn. The rooms are divided into the "old side of the house" and the "new side of the house." The Syrah room was on the new side and I got the impression that the rooms on the new side are generally more spacious and contemporary. But I was equally impressed by the rooms on the old side, even if they are a little smaller.
Our room was quiet at night. We didn't hear anything inside or outside of the Inn while sleeping. The bathroom in the Syrah room was very cool with both a huge walk-in shower and a separate deep soaking Japanese tub. The bed was perfectly comfortable and while we didn't think to use the fireplace during our stay, it adds a great deal of charm to the room.
The location of the Inn is wonderful. Easy access from the freeway and it's a short 5 minute walk to the downtown Healdsburg square. The Inn sits on a quiet corner on a residential street. The surrounding gardens are terrific. We spent an afternoon sitting outside with friends drinking wine before heading to dinner and the setting couldn't have been more enjoyable. The Inn provides a free bottle of both red and white wine in the afternoons to guests. And there was a delicious bottle of wine waiting for us in our room as well when we checked in.
Overall, we highly recommend the Grape Leaf Inn. The amenities are excellent. Easy parking in their lot or right on the street. The free wireless internet access is fast and effective (it really works unlike other places we go to!). The gourmet food is outstanding. The location is excellent. And the staff are extremely friendly and very attentive.
Having stayed at other places in Healdsburg, this is by far one of the best and a great value for the money. We look look forward to returning soon.
