My ex-lover suprised me with a wonder stay here at the New World Inn. The bed and pillows inveloped me like a big fluffy cloud, i slept like a baby on it's mother's breast. The jaccuzi in the room was great and the feeling of community was a pleasant change from hotel stays. Treat yourself, it's worth it.

Loved it all! The room was lovely: great featherbed, gas stove, flat panel TV; soft robes and towels, wine in the room. Overall ambience very cozy: fire in living room, cookies on arrival, wine and hors d'ouevres, chocolate desserts (snuck down for more at 1 AM). Russ and other staff very helpful with recommendations (wineries, dinners). Breakfast delicious! Would definitely...

My husband and I had booked two nights at the Old World Inn for a nice getaway. Honestly, I expected great quality for my $290 a night room. Normally I step into a b&b and I feel quite comfortable....not this time. To start with, we booked the breakfast in bed option. I thought this would be a nice treat for...

We’d like to share with our fellow TripAdvisor readers what we did for these folks during their stay with us. But first, a few corrections: -Our website does indeed talk about "bubbling your cares away in the outdoor spa tub", but only as part of a specific room description for our Starry Night room (which has a private outdoor spa...

The Old World Inn is a charming and welcoming place to stay. The room we stayed in was the Biblioteca and it was very comfortable and private. The owner, Russ and hostess Terry were very helpful,friendly and gave valuable suggestions when asked about places to eat and wineries to visit throughout Napa. Our B&B experience was nothing less than perfect...

The Old World Inn is located just off the main Napa City downtown area, and it is just a 10-15 minute walk to get to some great restaurants. We found the location perfect! The innkeepers, Sharon and Russ, made us feel so welcome, and comfortable at their place - something we really appreciated and why we recommend this place. It...

Disappointed that since we wanted to do the wine-tasting experience of Napa Valley, didn't want to be so far away from vineyards and the Inn is in the city of Napa which isn't much to rave about. Russ and Sharon were not there, but the young woman in charge bent over backwards to try to make it an enjoyable experience....

We stayed in The Secret Garden room at Old World Inn for 3 nights and absolutely loved it. Our room was scrumptious and relaxing and well worth the price. The wine tastings, breakfast, desert spread, and helpful tips and reservations were just some of the extras provided during the stay. Russ and Sharon are very approachable and helpful. The location...

The Old World Inn was great! Their motto is "like staying with friends", and that's definitely true. The Innkeepers are so friendly and helpful. It was my wife's birthday during our stay and Sharon helped make arrangements to make the day special - flowers and champagne in the room, etc. She also make reservations in advance for a limo tour,...

In searching the internet for a B&B to stay while in Napa a few things drew us to the Old World Inn. Great website offered pictures and information.
