“Heaven in Napa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

So if you need a place to sleep after you go check out some Napa wineries or after you eat at The (Michelin ***) Restaurant at the Meadowood, you can't do any better than to stay here. 250 acres of hills with little (or big) chalets nestled between trees, overlooking a small golf course, or just more forest. They have all the usual outdoor activities you might expect like a couple of great pools (adult and kiddie), tennis, croquet, etc. Ordinarily excellent eating at the Grill. For example, the Grill has better croissants than I've been able to find in San Fran, and equal to the best in France. And then, 3-star Michelin dining at The Restaurant. French Laundry, watch out! The cottages themselves are as luxurious as you'd expect for the stiff tab, with amazing beds and all kinds of modern amenities while still preserving a rustic feel. The employees are exceptionally well trained and empowered to make you happy by doing anything within reason to make you happy. You want a golf cart to move your carcass from the restaurant to the chalet, 300 meters at 1 in the morning, and you're 30 and in great shape? Sure! A smiling golf card driver appears within 30 seconds outside the restaurant door. Most things you don't have to ask for--they anticipate them.

My husband and I went there for a week for our vacation.
The hotel is phenomenal , and we are very very picky, specially me who I am a clean freak.
The room was spotless, bed super comphy, we had a fire place so we could light a fire at night, nice porch to relax and watch the trees and animals, nice espresso machine to enjoy cappuccinos when we wanted.
The customer service from all the employees at the hotel was fantastic, from the reception person to the breakfast host to the cleaning personal, the tennis instructors, everybody was fantastic. I am looking forward to going back there . One of the most enjoyable places I ever stayed at. Good job meadowoods.

My wife and I planned a stay for the weekend of a charity event recently. She had a medical issue come up, and were told there would be no refund of our room (several thousand dollars). We were told it could be moved, but only within a very narrow window. So we are headed up to use the rooms while my wife IS STILL ON BED REST next week. Just so it isn't wasted.

We will be back to staying at the Bardessono, Auberge, or Carneros Inn on our upcoming stays. These people are absolutely ridiculous.

I will update my review once we have finished our best rest stay there next week.

After making my reservation, I called the resort to get some help with a few wine tours that Iwanted to visit and to make lunch and dinner reservations. I talked to a very pleasant and knowledgable man named Will Agee. He set up several private tours and food arranngements. All were fantastic! The resort itself is the best property in Napa for the high end visiter.(sorry Auberge ). Everything from the rooms, grounds . clubhouse , reception and of course the top notch staff. Will and the rest of the staff went out of their way to make our trip exceptional. I would recommend Meadowood to anyone who wants the very best.

Room Tip: there are no bad rooms. We had one for my son on the treetop area and it was great. My suite was a h...

From being greeted at the gate when we arrived to the smile and wave good-bye when we left, everything was lovely. We had a very nice room in a tree lined setting. A walk around the grounds showed the pride that they everyone who works there takes in making Meadowood so pristine. There was construction going on, so there was some noise that broke the quietness of the setting, but it was still amazing grounds to take a walk and enjoy nature. The service at The Grill and The Restaurant could not have been any better. The wait staff was always attentive, and they took care to make sure everything during our stay was perfect. The food and the wine pairings were excellent. I would definitely do that again!
A round of golf on their nine hole course was a bit disappointing since I expected the greens to be in better shape. Unfortunately, it was muddy and not in the condition you would expect from this type of resort, but overall, it was a wonderful experience to stay and enjoy the many luxury experiences Meadowood has to offer.

Top notch in every way! Luxury without the stuffiness or attitude-simple elegance at its best! We stayed in a tree line cottage for two nights-simple but perfect-clean lines, frette linens, super comfy bed, Molton Brown toiletries-cute deck with a table and chairs for yummy room service breakfasts-very private. Spent an afternoon at the adult pool-attentive service, delicious cocktails and lunch. Had a massage-you don't come here for the spa as it is simple but it gets the job done-steam and sauna in locker room.
We dined one night at The Restaurant bar-great service and fabulous cocktails created by top notch mixologist Sam-kuddos to him-he even picks his own plums for one of his creations-this guy is serious about his craft! The $90 3 course tasting meal was delicious alibet quiet small--we ordered the cheese plate from room service when we got back to our room-but it was an enjoyable evening and a great preview to our dinner the next night in the main dining room. (More on that in a minute)
We played a round of golf on their cute par 3 course-it was perfect as this was my first time swinging the clubs in over 5 years. I must admit though I was a bit surprised that the course wasn't in better shape--it is in need of some attention-but it was fine for my purpose. A cocktail and snack from the grill was perfect after our round. We borrowed bikes and headed to town for the afternoon-bikes are great and easy to ride.
Our dinner at The Restaurant was an experience-it is worthy of its 3 Michelin stars-you are not given a menu and have to relinquish all control to the chef-which I loved!! We also did the wine pairing and left all the choices to the sommelier-another fabulous decision. The service was perfect-not stuffy-approachable and professional-just a great dining experience can't say enough good things about it-and we were full when we left!
The service at Meadowood is outstanding-everyone is friendly, sincere and seem truly happy to be working there--really top notch!
Job well done Meadowood-we will be back-maybe with the kiddies in tow next time!
