“We can't wait to come back and see Kent at the front desk!!”
Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I stayed at the Olea on a romantic birthday weekend. We loves the fact that we could stay one night. Most places have a 2-night minimum, and we just didn't have that kind of time. When we arrived after a log day of wine tasting we were greeted with a snail from Kent behind the front desk. He was warm and friendly. We mentioned we wanted to eat at The Star for my birthday dinner, and he jumped on the phone immediately to get us in! He went above and beyond our expectations! The room was gorgeous!! The heated floors are a bonus and the robes we soft and fluffy. The breakfast was out of this world!!We cannot wait to come back in March! This will be our hotel recommendation for all our friends visiting Sonoma!!

This was our first time to stay in the Sonoma area and we could not have picked a more perfect place to stay! The room was quiet, beautiful and simply perfect....the breakfasts were to die for...the staff amazing. Julie and Laura were the absolute best hosts...made us feel very at home. Our young waiter was delightful...and I unfortunately did not get his name! We even were able to join in on a awesome cooking class one evening by total surprise! Can not say enough good things about our stay. Perfect location for winery visiting and wonderful walks! Thanks for the great time...hope to be back soon!

Olea hotel is a very good option to visit Glen Ellen wineries in the Sonoma Valley. It is in a quiet place, in the country, with well decorated rooms. The staff is friendly and the hotel has good facilities.
The gourmet breakfast is the weak point because it is only one option.

Room Tip: Rooms with fireplace are bigger but more expensive. During the cold weather may be a good option.

We had a wonderful experience staying at the Olea Hotel. Kent was incredibly helpful with suggestions for wine tours and in arranging a hot air balloon trip. After a day of activity, it was lovely to sit on the upper patio under the beautiful trees and sip the complimentary wine while conversing with other guests. Although we missed the gourmet breakfast due to an early departure for the airport, one staff member preparing breakfast kindly offered to provide something for us to take with us.

My wife and I stayed at the Olea Hotel and we were just stunned by how wonderful our stay was. We had 3 nights at the hotel as well as two couples massages which were some of the best massages we have ever encountered. The setting for the Olea is quiet, serene, intimate and beautiful. The Staff is over-the-top helpful, engaging, and professional. Lastly the daily breakfast was truly gourmet, creative and wonderful. I can't recommend this hotel enough for those that want a quiet, relaxing, charming, and first class experience. We can't wait to go back on our next visit to California Wine Country.

Room Tip: Probably best to take an upstairs room or one of the cottages if you like it perfectly quiet.

Olea Hotel is located on a beautiful property, employs an extremely knowledgable staff and has very nice rooms. Everything is well updated and welcoming. However, the best part was the breakfast each morning - not to be missed!!!
