“Charming with a capital "C"”
Reviewed September 24, 2011

La Residence is a truly charming place. Beautiful grounds and beautiful rooms. The staff were exceptionally friendly and provided very helpful tips that only true locals can provide. Nice continental breakfast and evening wine hour. This place attracts interesting people and was easy to strike up lively discussions at the wine hour with other guests. Nice pool and hot tub. No spa. This place is great for couples. Not so much for families or traditional business traveler. Bonus: Bistro Don Giovanni is in easy walking distance from La Residence. Great food and wine list and no need to drive afterwards.

Room Tip: We stayed in the old mansion, which was lovely and quiet. There are other outbuildings that are new...

Dear Guest,

Thank you for the time taken to review your recent stay with us here at La Residence. I am glad that you were able to benefit from our friendly and knowledgeable staff to help enjoy your time in the valley, while getting some inside information on where to go and what to see.

We are extremely lucky to have a great setting in which our guests can relax and unwind as they find new friends along the way during wine hour and breakfast.

We look forward to welcoming you back when your travels allow you to come to the Napa Valley once more. Thank you once again for joining us here at La Residence.

Best regards,
Graham Yallop

They must be so sick & tired of reading this, but this hotel would be perfect if it weren't so close to Highway 29 - and therefore just too noisy.
Beautiful gardens - sitting right on the winery - large rooms, beautifully decorated, a quaint, comfortable setup, excellent breakfast and end-of-day tastings. Great location (winery-wise, at least), it's within minutes of the region's best wine makers.
But it IS a little noisy (albeit not bad in the rooms with windows shut), there's no escaping that sad fact.

My wife and I were instantly impressed with the staff right off the get go. Friendly and courteous without fault. This was the case for our entire stay. The room was great and the location is perfect. We had just been in the Wharf area for three days before this and disappointed with our accommodations. La Residence restored our faith in value and service. It feels like a B&B, but works like a Hotel. The best of both with no downsides.

There is a restaurant just down the road that is fantastic and a taxi ride into town for other restaurants is easily obtained and recommended. It is Napa after all, so no designated drivers for us. The staff arranged everything, had great recommendation on food, wineries and tours to enjoy. We will definitely be back.

We just stayed at the La Residence for part of our honeymoon to Napa and couldn't have been happier. This is a small and beautiful property that is spread into several buildings in between Napa and Yountville. Although it is right by HWY 29, we could not hear the traffic and the beautiful grounds and trees shielded the highway to make it feel like an oasis.

Our room was in the mansion (our bed had the softest sheets I have ever felt, I want a set!) with a balcony, and the hot tub was just behind our building which was great after a long day of wine tasting! There was a continental breakfast each morning and a wine reception with hors d'oeuvres each evening in the main building. Judy was so helpful in giving us recommendations and reservations to wineries and dinner places. She gave us lots of coupons for different wineries. They also provide access to a shipping company for your wine that you collect to ship home which was convenient for us not to have to search for a shipping company or ship from the wineries when we only wanted a bottle or two from each place. Bistro Don Giovanni was delicious like the other reviewers have said and great that it was just a few steps from the hotel.
We really can't wait to go back. It was just the hotel we wanted!

We learned that La Residence is owned by Craig and Catherine Hall. We are members of the Hall Wine Club and we recieved a discount on the roomrate. The Hotel was a very good choice for us. The Hotel is conviently located right along Highway 29. The grounds are lovely. There is a pool and hot tub. We had a nice room on the first floor of the "mansion". There is some road noise but it did not disturb our sleep. The breakfeast is very good and the happy hour wine and cheese service is outstanding. They will serve Hall wines if requested. The first night we walked to the Bistro Don Giovanni for dinner. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and we would stay here again when we visit the Napa Valley.

Great place to stay.All the staff very helpful and friendly . A very relaxing place to be with many exciting vineyards and places to visit all around. Excellent location. Maybe could do with a larger Howard Lane road sign,the current is difficult to spot traveling south.We will be back.
