“Fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

From the moment we got there until the moment we left it was like paradise. The staff is friendly and attentive from checking in to departing. Rooms were beautiful. Food was outstanding. The breakfast that is included was wonderful and the free use of the Mercedes Benz cars was an extra added treat. I loved the idea of a extra treats in your room that are not added to your bill. Our fridge was stocked with water, juices, soda and beer. There was candy,nuts and even microwave popcorn! I can't say enough about this property if you want a special few days away from the rat race, it is well worth it. It is a short ride to most vineyards in the area but off the beaten track of any noise or traffic set upon a hillside. Beautiful views of the valley during your meals and even at the pool.

This is probably the nicest hotel we have ever stayed at, and we have stayed at quite a few. You truly have to be searching to find anything negative to say about Auberge. Room was incredibly comfortable, amenities in the room were unbelievable (the mini bar and snacks?!), and the staff was attentive yet unobtrusive. We used the spa and had great massages. The hot tub overlooks the Valley and adjoining vineyards---its beautiful! The fitness center is fairly small, but was never crowded when we were there. It has an open-air deck with weights, which was very cool. The pool is nice and the staff at the pool didn't miss a beat. The only negative thing I will say (again, see sentence #2) is after we had checked out we had to go back to retrieve a forgotten item and we did get a little attitude/arrogance from the hotel staff, so I can understand some of the comments in other reviews about similar experiences. This is definitely not a kid place and its a splurge, but I didn't want to leave!

Our niece recommended we make reservations while in Napa to eat a "nice"' lunch on the terrace at Auberge. It was a lovely April day and the views were beautiful. Food was very good, service was great. So glad we went! Book in advance!

We had the pleasure of dining here as part of our honey moon. We had booked in advance and hadn't requested a specific table location so we were delighted when we were given a table on the terrace central to the wonderful view that cascades around. My wife had scallops for her starter and lamb for her main, whilst I had lobster to start and beef for my main. I cannot fault any of the food and can only talk of my delight. We have been fortunate to eat in some very special restaurants over the years and this tops the lot for us. Our mains were followed by the cheese menu. This was simply divine. The local rose champagne and wine choice just topped it all off and ranks as one of our best food experiences to date. The service was fantastic and very friendly. There was no hint of snobbery that can sometimes exist in fine dining establishments. Napa has a lot to offer foodies and I will definitely be making a visit here again!

we arrived at this hotel expecting the best, and I can now safely vouch that this is indeed among the very best hotels in the USA if not the world. Everything is perfect. The rooms, the amenities, the view, the friendliness of the staff... the food is simply outstanding. The spa is very good with staff that are truly great professionals. We will definitely come back... soon I hope!

This was just an amazing resort! We were treated to 2 nights in this beautiful place by some of our customers/friends! The views from the restaurant were just amazing looking over the valley. Of course the service was just out of this world!

Room Tip: I don't think there is a bad room at this resort! Everything was just perfect.

I was given a gift certificate by my children for my 70th birthday. It was a very generous gift. The place was just a little hard to find but well worth the effort. They greet you w/ a glass of wine & some snacks which you can have all afternoon. The place is situated on a hill so all rooms have a nice view from your balcony. It is not necessary to pay for an upper valley view as you have a great view from restaurant. The room is large & the bathroom is huge. Everything in your room is for you. There is wine in the frig & snacks & fruit for which there is no additional charge. They also have a program w/ Mercedes so when we were picked up to go to breakfast in the golf cart, the driver said that no one had packed the convertible yet & did I want it ( was this a trick question)? He dropped the keys on our table & after a delicious breakfast the was included in charge, we drove off to explore wine country. The help were extremely courteous & called you by name within an hour of registering. The bed was extremely comfortable & the bedding even better. There were plenty of big fluffy towels & a nice robe in room. Great place to spend some time at. There is nothing negative to say about this place.

Room Tip: all rooms are great & not necessary to spend extra for upper valley view as it gets dark & t...
