“Fantastic Property”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Stayed at the Carneros inn for my partner's 30th birthday. Concierge was great, setting up a day tour of wineries, and also a car service.

Staff was very accommodating in receiving a gift package and holding onto it until his birthday which was fantastic.

Soaking tub was great, and loved the illy espresso machine in the bathroom. Minibar was complimentary and we had cheese waiting on our arrival. Was slightly surprised at the size of the bedroom - it felt a little cramped.

Had to specifically request an ipod speaker as the room didn't have one.

Only slight negative was during check-in (it was late at night). The rep appeared to not know much about the American Express fine hotels and resorts benefits and we were not offered an upgrade when bigger rooms/houses were available online.

The view off of the patio at the main restaurant in the morning is breathtaking. Definitely recommend having breakfast there.

Spa was nice with a segregated steam room and dry sauna.

Our group's first visit to the Inn, it is about 15 minutes from downtown Napa so a bit out of the way. The cottages are a interesting concept and the very large outdoor patio's and shower would have been more inviting in the nicer weather. The room we had seem quite small with the fireplace and TV off to the side where you would have to go out of your way to see the fire so we did not light it. TV is on a arm so you could turn it toward the bed if you wish. There were NO dressers for your clothes, only a nightstand with a couple drawers. The heated floor in the bath room was a nice touch. The shower with all its gagets was not very user friendly, we opted to shower outside in the rain on day two for ease and more space. It would be nice if you had children to entertain and wanted the connecting rooms with the shared patio. With nightly average of $550 we all decided we would explore other options in the future.

My wife and I stayed at the Carneros Inn last week for our anniversary. Upon arrival we were given a glass of wine and excellent service continued throughout the stay. The highlight for me was the deluxe cottage -- especially the outdoor shower. We enjoyed the privacy and beauty of the cottage as well as the surrounding landscaping. We bought wine at the general store and ate at all of the restaurants. We also had a great afternoon in the spa, which was great. I recommend all of it. It was not cheap, but it was well worth it.

Stayed at Carneros Inn for a friends birthday event. The check in area was a lot different. It was elegant, but felt a bit sterile. The staff were pleasant enough.
We got a cottage and it was lovely. It was a little hard to navigate the property with parking ect. The amenities that came with the room were fantastic. I loved the heated floors and private back yard. It was perfect for a honeymoon couple. Not too much privacy as cottages are close together.Not so much as others can see in, there is a high fence all around. More as in noise.
The property was top notch and I have great memories from the birthday event that our friend had that hosted over 100 people.
I wasn't aware of the high price of the room until check out. Not sure if I would stay again as there are many other great hotels at less than half the cost within a few miles.

We had a wonderful three night staying at the very end of September. It's great place to relax. Weather was gorgeous, could take full advantage of the gorgeous hill top pool and lush grounds. It's expensive but still a good value. Very comfortable indoor outdoor accommodations, posh indoor outdoor bath.

Little extras make a difference, if for nothing else for good will...bottled water and sodas always replenished in the cottage. Sounds crazy but if a deluxe are charging 5 star prices, try to find ways not to nickel and dime your guests...it goes a long way.

My husband and I made the mistake of spending our one year anniversary at Carneros Inn. The mistake was that we only had time to spend a day and a night at the hotel and it was with heavy hearts that we left after so little time. It truly was absolutely wonderful. The hotel was so thoughtful and kind, from the glass of wine upon check in to all the thoughtful touches they incorporated including sending us wine and cheese plate as a happy anniversary gesture which was so appreciated. I could have stayed in our cottage for a month and been quite happy. From the heated floors to the fireplace to the outdoor shower and patio, it was just incredible. I can't wait to come back for our second anniversary which I have already made my husband promise me, this time for at least a week. Thank you Carneros for making it so special!!

We chose Carneros because my husband was there last year for a wine event and told me it was the most amazing place he had ever been. I just HAD to experience it to, so off we went! From the moment you check in and are greeted with wine, to the escort to your cottage, the room service and everything in-between, this is the most top-notch place I have ever stayed! And SO quiet! Even though we knew there were guests staying right beside us, you couldn't hear or see them. My favorite time of day was right at sunset. The first day we borrowed bikes and were biking around Carneros before the sun went down. The second night we enjoyed time in the hot tub looking over the vineyards at sunset and the third night we were walking back from Boon Fly's as the sun was going down. It was just gorgeous! My second favorite thing was the heated floors in the bathroom. Luxury! I predict that we will be back! Thank you for spoiling us and setting the precedent for hotels. We will never stay at another place that tops Carneros Inn!
