“Fabulous stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

We picked Bardessono for my husband's birthday visit to the Napa Vallry and we were extremely pleased. The welcome was warm and the facilities lovely. The rooms were very comfortable and roomy. We loved the private patio and rooftop pool. Lucy was excellent for dinner. We enjoyed the coffee and pastries in the bar each morning. The location is great to walk anywhere in Yountville and there are wonderful restaurants there. The staff was most helpful and the concierges knew the wineries and the valley to recommend all kinds of activities and eateries. We can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: We loved our first floor room with patio.

Dear WVjo,

We're so glad you stayed with us and thank you for this great review. You hit on our four core attributes - location, staff, food, and facilities.

West Virginia is not exactly around the corner, but we do hope you'll return....soon and often.

All best wishes from all of us at Bardessono.

The next time we come back to the Napa Valley, we are staying here.

And the time after that.

And the time after that.

I can't think of a better hotel experience I've had anywhere in the world over the past five years that was as satisfying as what we just had at Bardessono.

The pool and amenities were astounding. The food, terrific. The staff -- knowledgeable, and superb. And all of the help we had (restaurants, wineries, rental car, galleries, etc.) was over-the-top great.

Like I said, we'll be back.

Room Tip: They all looked spectacular, but ours was in the courtyard near the pool. Bright, sunny, perfect sou...

We came to your property to celebrate the "gender reveal" of our baby. Kini was kind enough to help book our reservation and even sent a super thoughtful amenity that included non-alcoholic wine, chocolate & a Bardessono onesie. This will be a treasured keepsake for sure!! When we arrived, every single staff member was attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. Laura at the Concierge desk was a particular super star and helped to execute the master plan we had for revealing our little one's gender, and it went off without a hitch. Overall it was just a perfect way to celebrate our very special occasion. Thank you, thank you!

Dear Allison F,

We're so pleased you chose us for the place to learn about your baby's gender. Hope you don't mind, but I'm going to "spill the beans" to the readers of this......it's a boy!

What fun it was having you here; and Laura and the rest of our team enjoyed making it a special time for you. I just wrote about Laura responding to another review. She's wonderful. Thank you for recognizing her so positively.

Do come back. We'd really enjoy seeing you and your husband again, and meeting your baby boy.

Warmest regards from all of us at Bardessono.

Jim.

P.S. We hope you meant to write that you "heart" Bardessono. We try to be pretty quiet here. :)

We were greeted in the lobby by - Antonello - who is quite a Gentleman. We have not experienced such love and hospitality since our visit to the Middle East. It rarely exists. When a stay starts like this - it's such a refreshing surprise and is so needed that no matter what negative would have happened later, it would not have mattered (of course none happened). HE is Bardessono and he is the #1 reason for our return, the facilities second. Outstanding - we are still talking about him.

To attempt to experience this property by viewing the website is not enough. To experience this property in person is another level. The cleanliness is that of a royal castle - whether on the grounds or in the rooms themselves. The mood the architecture and décor evoke actually take you away. The location is central to this little town of Yountville. Pay a little more (which you will in Yountville) and you'll experience what those of us that have stayed here have experienced.

The next day, Concierge Laura was extremely helpful and caring in assisting us to plan some outside events. She shared useful tips and other information, and booked some trips for us.

This review covers the Hotel and NOT Lucy Restaurant and Bar.

Room Tip: Avoid the room next to the gym...but then why work out?

Dear Artiste-Michael,

What a great review. Thank you so much. We're delighted you had a good stay here. And your kind words about two of our many great employees are deeply appreciated. You described Antonello to a tee - he's mature, worldly, ever-so-gracious, humble, and extremely caring. Hospitality is in his DNA. Same for Concierge Laura. She epitomizes all that is good about people from this area - genuine and friendly. Plus, she's extremely knowledgeable about the Valley.

Do come back...soon and often. It was our pleasure to serve you.

Best wishes from all of us at Bardessono.

Jim.

We stayed here for my wife's 40th birthday. The staff was wonderful. They contacted us ahead of time to see if they could book any restaurants and wine tours for us. When we arrived, we were given a tour of the hotel and a glass of wine. I think my stress level dropped a mile after our welcome.

The hotel is modern, if this is not your taste, stay elsewhere.

You could not get a better location with fantastic restaurants within a 5 minute walk.

The valets are great. They always had water in the cup holders of the car and asked if we would like the top down. They also gave us a round trip ride to nearby restaurant. (Mustards grill, best meal!)

This hotel is not as expensive as some of it's competitors. There is real value here in a true 5 star hotel.

My only complaint, and a very little one. We decided to have snacks in the bar one day as we had a late reservation for dinner. The coffee table in the lounge is too low to eat from. You have to lean over so far, it makes it very difficult to put a drink down or reach for food. (My wife sat on the floor) :)

Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Dear Ridsdale1,

We're so glad you had a wonderful stay here; and a belated congratulations on your wife's 40th. I can't think of a better place to celebrate a birthday than Napa Valley.

We really appreciate your business and the complimentary review you posted above. You're right about our coffee table in the Bar. It is far more aesthetically pleasing than it is functional. A classic case of 'form over function'.....

Hope you'll return for your birthday, and anniversary, or another of your wife's birthday, or for that matter, for no reason, at all.

All the best from all of us at Bardessono.

Jim.

On a recent trip to Cleveland (I live in Santa Barbara) to attend a fund raiser they were auctioning a Napa Valley trip. The generosity of all the businesses that contributed to this package was incredible...it included outstanding wine tastings, VIP treatment, and most importantly a two night stay at the Bardessono Hotel.
The property is beautiful, the rooms very private, quiet, well decorated and comfortable. The staff greeted us upon arrival with a glass of their wine of the month. There is not a single negative comment I can make about the Bardessono. It was amazing and the staff was happy, helpful and fantastic!

Room Tip: Our room was a King Spa Suite. We stayed in the section of the property called Magnolia

Dear MICHELLELAFOND,

We're so glad you went from Santa Barbara to Cleveland to discover us at a charitable event, and deeply appreciate your staying with us and posting this great review. Delighted that you enjoyed your stay here, and hopefully, you'll return.

You mentioned something very important to me personally - happy employees. The best service is given by employees who are fiercely proud of their workplace and enjoy their jobs as a result.
We try ever-so-hard to take as good care of our employees as our guests. And it shows.

Warmest regards from all of us at Bardessono.

My wife and I stayed at the Bardessono July 20th to the 23rd. The Hotel far exceeded my expectations.

The location was perfect. A short walk to all the incredible restaurants in town and a short walk to the Bouchon Bakery for a morning coffee and pastry.

Upon arrival at the Hotel, we were immediately greeted by the staff. They were welcoming and accommodating taking the keys to our vehicle and showing us to the front lobby. At the front check in desk, they already had our reservation card waiting on the table which made the check in process extremely fast. We were provided a wonderful glass of wine and then taken on a tour of the property that ended at our room. The tour was a great touch to make sure that we knew our way around the grounds.

The room was stunning. Large, comfortable and classy would be the words I would use to describe it. The bathroom was exceptionally large with a fantastic steam shower. Double sinks, large soaker tub and lots of dressing and closet space. The main area had a couch and chairs for sitting and a kitchen table. There was a small refreshment fridge in the room as well and as much free water as you can drink. There was a two sided fireplace that separated the sitting area from the bedroom area. The bed was large and comfortable with lots of first class touches like lighting, lamps, a small desk with chargers, plug ins, etc.

The best part of the room was the private, enclosed patio area with the outdoor shower.

We booked spa appointments for massage. They came and set up our room with massage tables. The therapists came and provided massage, when they were finished, they simply left the room. We were able to lie around and get moving at our leisure. We then sat on the patio and enjoyed a glass of wine while they came and cleaned up the massage table, awesome experience.

If you are planning a vacation to Napa, I would highly recommend the Bardenesso.

Room Tip: Ground Floor Units are the best.
