I stayed at the Carneros Inn in early November on a girl's spa weekend and thought the hotel was very good but not exceptional. I stayed in a garden cottage which was really small. The decor was pretty basic, but the room had a comfortable bed, a big bathroom with heated floors and a giant shower area--no bathtub. The cottage had a wonderful private deck with an outdoor shower but given that it was November this was of limited use. The property itself is huge and gorgeous. The service is incredible. Because of the size of the property, if you want to go to the restaurants or the bars at the Inn you need a car or it is a hike. You can call the bell desk and they come and give you a ride and we never had to wait more that a few minutes. The food quality was wonderful at the restaurants--we ate at Boon Fly, the Farm and the Market. Here are the negatives: the property is not well lit at all so walking around at night is not feasible--good thing for their car service. There are no blackout drapes or shutters in the cottages so we were up with the sun as the room was bright. No in-room entertainment system so you can't order movies. The concierge has DVDs but to get them you need to drive to the reception area. The lotions/shampoos do not come in individualized bottles but rather big bottles which I fear they reuse from guest to guest (maybe not but that would be a huge waste). If they do reuse them, I think that is a little gross. All in all, I thought the hotel was overpriced for what we got but maybe that is just Napa.
