First of all, this inn is actually a complex of two main houses and several smaller ones--so be real sure where you are actually booking as there are real differences. There is a reason they put the square footage--many of the rooms are very small. Fine if all you will do is sleep, but claustrophobic to spend much time there.... More

We came here with another couple who had stayed here. They booked a room in the main building of the Old World Inn but by the time we booked only their most expensive rooms were available so we chose the Barrel Room in the Merlot house. It was one of the more reasonably priced rooms but 2 nites cost us... More

Husband and I have never stayed in a B&B & were thrilled with this wonderful, quaint Inn. Charming and peaceful. Inn keepers were gracious. More options for breakfast is my only complaint. Highly recommend!

Our stay at the Old World Inn became the highlight of our reunion. A very classy place with optimal cleanliness and a staff that is great. Very engaging, very thoughtful, very pleasant and very professional. A great breakfast arrangement, wine tasting and room accommodations. With 11 members staying, it was very important that we had a place to congregate. Provided... More

I chose this B&B based on the wonderful reviews and photos on Trip Advisor. I was really disappointed when we were shown to our room. For nearly $300 a night, I didn't think it was a good value. We stayed in the Barrel Room in the Merlot House. The feel was very industrial - not a homey B&B. The room... More

My wife and I went to Napa for our first time and didn't know exactly where to stay....we got lucky! We will return to Napa someday and now we don't have to wonder where to stay. Breakfast is included and that's what you need before wine tasting begins!

Stayed here for a week. Location was 4 blocks from downtown and riverfront. Outstanding amenities to include wine presentations in their wine cellar in the evening and dessert treats left out when you came in later. Excellent breakfasts. Rooms and bedding always clean and crisp. We stayed in main house. Courteous and efficient staff. A must stay!

We visited the Old World Inn for a birthday "staycation". The photos of the property on the website made it look charming and welcoming. The location is walking distance from downtown Napa so it made for good odds for a great time. Well, let me say, their service knocked my socks off. The room was gorgeous and well appointed, they...

We stayed in the cottage behind The Cabernet House. Absolutely wonderful. The cottage was roomy and comfy! We even hosted a Green Bay Packer party for 6 while we were there. Shared wine and brought in food from a local Italian restaurant. The staff is wonderful and met all our needs. Packed a breakfast to go when we needed to... More
