Our party of 6 (3 couples) spent 2 nights at the Inn while visiting local wineries. Victor was the Inn keeper while we were there and was not a very warm or welcoming fellow. It was like we were doing him a favor for staying there. My wife & I stayed in Room No. 5 the Bamboo Room with a... More

Nice B&B. Staff were friendly. Quiet. Great location. There was no complimentary wine and appetizers in the evening despite being told this when we arrived. There was parking in the available in the back. In terms of cleanliness- it was ok. Carpets could use a deep clean.

Hi Ashlee, Thanks for your feedback. Tamra, our fill-in innkeeper was there during your check-in. She got the news about her mother being hospitalized around 4 PM that day and had to rush out from inn and therefore was not able to serve wine and appetizers at 5 PM as she originally mentioned to you. We are taking seriously about... More

We are so very sorry about the mix up. Your reservation came through a third party channel HRS which we just started working with them. Somehow, your reservation came through as one room booking in our system due to integration issues with this channel. Double booking is such a rare occurrence at our inn which you unfortunately experienced. We sincerely... More

We had a lovely stay at the Inn at St Helena. Celebrating our 10th Anniversary we were warmly received. Happy Hour with wine, cheese and crackers was a great way to meet the other guests and get tips on where to eat and visit. The bed and linens were luxuriously wonderful. Breakfast was divine and the entire setting serene. We'll... More

I'm not necessarily a B and B type traveler but decided to book a room here for a weekend in St. Helena based on Tripadvisor's reviews and photos. We chose a room in the back on the bottom floor. It had a patio and private entry. It was fantastic. We had a comfortable king bed, seating area, gas log fireplace,... More

The location is great; and the inn keeper's warm welcome is another big plus~ Don't miss their reception hours that you could enjoy wine and finger food before heading out to the dinner. and the home-made breakfast is delicious. So regret that I only stay here for one night.

We were told there was off street parking and there was. But when we returned from dinner at a restaurant in Napa there were no spots to park as they had been filled by others. We were never warned this was a possibility. Had to look for spot on street. Hassle.

We also mention the free street parking. We would love to have additional parking slots however land space here in California is just not... More

Walk out the front door, past the extraordinary Redwood Tree in the front yard to shopping and dining! We celebrated a 30th birthday in Napa, visiting 9 wineries over four days and loved our location, the friendly service (Thank you Meldalina!) and meeting your other guests next door.
