I've just returned from a fantastic four days at the Silverado Resort. I was travelling with friends whose main goal was golf, and as I don't play, they assure me that the two courses were fantastic. I, however, was using it as a staging point for exploring the wineries of the region, and I couldn't have chosen a better location! The resort is just at the bottom of the Silverado Trail, so you can easily head out and follow it all the way north past the most amazing wineries, then once you reach the top, you can head back north down the St Helena Hwy, past even more wineries, giving you a perfect circuit. The resort is also very close to Napa town, giving easy access to its shops and restaurants etc.
The resort is based around a stunning mansion house, and the drive up is very impressive. I was greeted by bellmen who watched my car whilst I checked in, and I found the reception staff extremely welcoming and friendly. In fact, this was true for all staff, and I appreciated their clear desire to offer help and make my stay enjoyable. For example the concierge listened to what I was looking for before giving me a list of his recommendations, and the bartender was happy to spend time suggesting which wine I might enjoy, and which wineries in the region she enjoyed.
After check in I was given a map of the resort and directions to my condo. The condo was extremely comfortable (great beds and bedsheets etc), scrupulously clean and fully appointed with all I needed (including a great mini-bar). I was in one of the older units due for refurbishment so the bathroom fixtures were a little dated, but they were all immaculately clean with fluffy towels and great amenities, and so this was more than made up for. The condo was very spacious with lots of storage and I really enjoyed having a living room to relax in after hectic days!
Another lovely surprise was the gym in the spa. I didn’t have any treatments but the gym was fantastic! It had friendly staff, was immaculately clean, and masses of modern machines (some I’d never even seen before!). They even have classes, although I was impressed enough with myself that I managed a few short workouts in the gym.
I understand that the resort is currently undergoing a lot of improvements due to new owners and management, and you can see that they are passionate about this and I look forward to visiting again and following it’s progress. I had a great stay – and it can only get better!
Oh, and I had one of the best Caesar Salad’s ever through room service – a very unexpected and happy surprise!
