“Great for staff retreat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

The hotel is beautiful, the grounds are beautiful, the rooms are interesting and beautiful. The staff is incredibly helpful and responsive (I had an issue with my bag - totally my own fault - and they went way out of their way to help me solve the problem.) The conference room is comfortable and they provided coffee/tea and water, plus notepads and pens. We felt "taken care of" in many small ways. The result was a great retreat.

They provided a GREAT continental breakfast and I was really sorry that I didn't have time to do more than grab a croissant and run.

My only complaint is that the beds weren't very comfortable. Four of us woke up with back pain or having not slept well. My bed was lumpy and the mattress seemed old, while the luxurious bedding was new-ish.

Dear Christina D,

Thank you for taking the time to offer feedback from your stay with us in July/

It is great to read that your group felt taken care and the retreat went well also. As with all feedback, we look to improve any area that did not meet the guests expectation and will look into the comment regarding the bed.

We hope when you next return to Wine Country, that you will consider a return visit to La Residence.

We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Best regards,
Graham

Pure relaxation at a quaint and intimate countryside hotel, with lots of private lounging areas, a hot tub and pool. La Residence's room and grounds were beautiful and the service was superb. It was honestly the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in, so every night entailed a great night sleep. Breakfast was great and although everyday it was the same spread, it was satisfying. The wine and cheese tasting offered every evening was the cherry on top. The staff was attentive, personable and offered great suggestions for day activities. Looking forward to my return to La Residence!!!

Dear ToniTulips313,

We are glad that you were able to share our little slice of heaven in Wine Country recently.

Your fabulous feedback is what we strive to offer all guests here at the hotel. With harvest just around the corner, it makes us appreciate even more the beautiful area we live and work in.

Thank you again for taking the time to review your time with us.

We had an unexpected stay in La Residence, courtesy of another hotel in Napa that left us high and dry (more on that in another review). La Residence came to the rescue. We were very lucky to find this place, literally at the last minute. Beautiful property, quiet and romantic, nicely appointed room, comfortable bed, great wine and cheese in the evening, and a very nice continental breakfast in the morning. Staff were very helpful. I'd have liked to spend another night. Of course everything in Napa in August is crazily priced, and La Residence is no exception, but compared to other properties in the same price range in this area, I'd have to say this is far and away the best of them. Well done.

After searching around for a nice quaint place, my boyfriend and I decided to pick La Residence and we were very happy with our choice. We drove from San Francisco Airport to the hotel and missed our the hotel entrance. It was not marked very well but once we found our way onto the street, the entrance was beautiful. It was exactly what we were looking for. Someplace not commercialized and very quaint and quiet. We got checked in without any issues and was shown to our room which was in the "main house". Our room was on the third floor and the stairs were very steep and there are no elevators. The room was nice and clean and small but it had everything you would need. The bathroom was small and the shower was even smaller...lol.. The staff were all very pleasant and helpful. We had the complimentary breakfast a couple of mornings there and it was fine. Nothing extravagant but was efficient. No lunch was provided and there is no room service or onsite restaurants but there was an Italian restaurant right at the end of the driveway. We asked the staff for recommendations for a group wine tour and they recommended Platypus Tours. We signed up and we had such a great time. The group of people we were with were all great and the day was a lot of fun. We would recommend Platypus Tours. Our tour guide was awesome. I'd put his name but I don't remember it.

The location of the resort was very ideal. We were able to drive into Yountville and some of the other surrounding towns without any issues. Lots of excellent restaurants nearby.

The courtyard/grounds were very well maintained and clean. We didn't get a chance to enjoy the hot tub or the pool because it was a little bit chilly. No issues with parking.

Overall, we had a great time and would return and stay here again.

Room Tip: If you have bad knees are cannot climb stairs, then ask for a room on the first floor or one of the...

Everything about our stay at La Residence was terrific. The room was beautiful, the bed was super comfy, it was very quiet (a HUGE plus in my book). Breakfast was great (the same everyday, but with enough of a spread to not get boring), wine/cheese tasting every night was excellent and helped give us some ideas of where to go for tastings. I cannot say enough great things about our stay at La Residence and will highly recommend it to anyone traveling to the area.

Room Tip: The cottage king rooms are perfect for a couple looking for a little privacy at a great price.

Dear Jaris W,

Perfect for couples is a great headline to describe your time spent at La Residence.

While it is great for anyone to stay with us, we typically find that the privacy, serenity and ability to relax among the vines is a great way to unwind with that special someone.

We are happy that you enjoyed your visit, and hope that when you next return to the Napa Valley that we have the opportunity to take care of you once more.

Thank you again for your feedback.

Best regards,
Graham

Stayed here for one night while touring Napa. Very clean, quiet and relaxing. Pool and hot tub are great and not crowded. Breakfast in the morning was delicious. They also have a wine tasting everyday from 5 - 7 pm that is fun and a great way to meet other people touring Napa and sharing stories about wineries to visit.

A group of us stayed at this hotel for a wine party in December. The hotel is actually owned by the Hall's who also own HALL Wines. The place is quaint, and quiet! Our rooms were wonderful, bed were comfortable, and the fireplaces in each room added to the elegance. Our room also had a balcony which was very nice. Each little building, has access to a hot tub as well, which in December felt quite nice. The entire property is very clean. They also offer wine and cheese in the evenings in the main house and this is a nice touch!
